Mehr Tarar book We Do not Bleed

 

Although the author has shared her innermost feelings with the reader(s), But it looks like the language of the book is not written for a lay reader. In fact, the title of the book also mismatches with the content.

 

Important points of the book

1. A nation will prosper when the women of the society will not only be given equal rights but also they should be given conducive environment so that they can contribute for the development of the country.

2. In a patriarchal society being a single mother is not easy. Especially when in the name of religion people around you try to give unsolicited advices.

3. Crimes against women, especially in the name of honor, are common in Pakistan. And the infamous case of Pakistan’s first social media star, Qandeel Baloch, is an epitome of that.

 

I hope you like this. Thanks for reading, Jai Hind.

Namaste reader, My name is Yash, and books for me are like a medicine, which removes my ignorance and also helps me in behaving more like a human.Though I live in the world’s largest democracy, India, but when I look around, I realized that this democratic nation of mine has turned into a kind of feudal oligarchy or kleptocracy, where people from a particular community or I would say particular surname has hijacked this democracy, and the political parties in India has turned itself into a kind of family enterprises where the family members are the only shareholders. And I want to change this, and books are a weapon which is helping me, so that I can help others and my nation.Shukriya for reading this Thought of mine.
