A Doctor by profession, an Indian by origin and a blogger by hobby, Dr. Pareesa Rabbani is a new writer in the city who writes with a brutal, ruthless honesty and her articles stir a frenzy everywhere.
Pareesa’s poetry as well as articles are mostly more of a reflection on her daily life encounters, life lessons, sarcasm, feminism and social reforms. Her posts capture the essence of multiple problems plaguing our country today because they seem to share the same roots.
Pareesa is very right in underscoring how the standards for men and those for women are so brazenly imbalanced and twisted, it is downright unacceptable. I do not know why or how we are allowing such blatant hypocrisy to reign so free in our world; I have yet to see people more chauvinistic and misogynistic than the ordinary Indian man.
Let’s not forget, however, that India too has had its fair share of shameless misogyny. I personally feel that she writes what encapsulate the oppressive reins that an Indian society strangles women with.
