18th September, 2019, Bengaluru, India. The only time I ever broke down in tears in the 10 years I have lived after fighting a domestic violence case was in this interview for Feministo Podcast with Red Elephant Foundation. The reason was I felt understood and when you find acceptance and empathy, it's like coming home. I have been strong for so many years, I needed to cry once for myself and what the person inside of me has gone through. From having suffered in the closest relationship a person will ever have in their life(marriage), being a single mum, relocating from a small town to one of the fastest growing cities in India, adjusting, finding my footing in different industries, creating my niche, learning to trust people again and making friends, healing, using my personal experiences to shape my humanitarian work and the deep joy that is part of my life now were what I discussed in this interview. This interview was taken by Kirthi Jayakumar and Vaishnavi Pallapothu.
The Red Elephant Foundation is a civilian peacebuilding initiative aiming at building gender equal and non-violent futures through education, advocacy for policy change, and tech-for-good. The Feminifesto Podcast brings together and presents stories of women in different fields.
