In a video that went viral on social media, businessman Robert Vadra on Sunday expressed his love for India due to its “diversity and versatility” and posted a video of a cow that he claimed can predict one’s future. “Love India for its diversity and versatility!!,” the son-in-law of UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi and husband of Congress General Secretary wrote on his Facebook post.

“You can go out in the streets and learn so much… Help people and see the appreciation in their large genuine smiles and get roses in return… You could also know your future (from) a sacred cow who nods its head in agreement. Love being part of this amazing country.”


Vadra shared a 17-second video of the cow standing next to a Hindu holy man which reportedly answers people’s queries by nodding or shaking its head. Vadra, seated in a car, asks the man: “Can it (cow) tell me everything?” The man responds: “Yes, she will tell everything and will bless you. This is the sacred month of Sawan.”

Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

"In India, to be born as a man is a crime, to question a woman is an atrocious crime, and this all because of those women who keep suppressing men in the name of feminism."

Feminism, a worldwide movement that started to establish, define and defend equal rights for women in all sections- economically, politically, and socially. India, being a patriarchal society gives a gender advantage to the men in the society thus, Indian feminists sought to fight against the culture-specific issue for women in India. Feminism itself is nothing but a simple movement that pursues equal rights for women (including transwomen) and against misogyny both external and internal.

This is not a popular tale outside the state, but it is common knowledge for travellers, especially those who fare through forests at night.

The legend of the yakshi is believed to be India's equivalent of the Romanian Dracula, except of course, the Yakshi is a female. Many Malayalis believe that the Yakshi wears a white saree and had long hair. She has a particular fragrance, which is believed to be the fragrance of the Indian devil-tree flowers. She seduces travellers with her beauty, and kills them brutally.

They are culturally defined either as "neither men nor women" or as men who become women by adopting women's dress and behavior. Section 377 of the India Penal code that criminalized all sexual acts "against the order of nature" i.e. engaging in oral sex or anal sex along with other homosexual activities were against the law, ripping homosexual people off of their basic human rights. Thus, the Indian Supreme Court ruled a portion of Section 377 unconstitutional on 6th September 2018.
