A photography show depicting the harsh reality of what the victim of the 16 December Delhi gangrape went through, was opened in the Capital by none other than her father, Badri Singh Pandey. Titled Aabru, the photography show by Ratan Sonal saw a nervous Pandey lighting the ceremonial lamp to formally inaugurate the exhibition at Lalit Kala Akademi on Wednesday afternoon.
“Yeh sab shows achhe hai awareness ke liye. Main nahi chaahta ki baaki families bhi hamari tarah us sab se guzare jo humne dekha aur saha hai (It’s all good for awareness and I don’t want other families to go through what we went through),” said Singh.
Pointing to some young girls present at the exhibition, he said, “Jab main aap jaise confident ladkiyon koh dekhta hoon toh mujhe apni beti ki yaad aati hai. We have to teach our daughters to be confident and fight till the end in such a situation (of harassment).”
Asked what he thinks about the judicial proceedings into the case, Singh said, “Kanoon apna kaam thik se kar raha hai aur hum chaahte hain woh hamein jald insaaf dega.” (The law makers are on it and we’re hoping to get justice soon).
