Started as a decent word war, it ended in a friendly word of appreciation! Yes, it is about the tweets by
Suchitra Krishnamoorthi and
Renuka Shahane. Suchitra tweeted, “Amma always said " Money is not everything. Even criminals and whores have money. What matters is not money but character and integrity" I truly truly understand her words only today. Jeez ive never felt more proud of my middle class roots.”
To which Renuka replied sensibly and here are her tweets: “No disrespect to your Amma @suchitrak but as women let's try & correct the injustice that our traditions have imposed on whores. We castigated whores while letting off their customers who are leading "respectful" lives! Let's not put whores & criminals in one bracket at least Whores sell what is theirs. Criminals take what is others. Whores are often pushed into their profession due to human trafficking at ages as young as 7. Does any child have the right to say "no" at that age? Whores are pushed into prostitution by people they trust explicitly Whores are abused, raped, tortured, drugged, given hormonal injections at a very early age & then raped relentlessly throughout their professional lives. Most of what should be their earnings is taken away by pimps & middlemen or middle women!”
“Whores are'nt respected by any social class in our society. Many criminals hold very respectful positions, some even in our Parliament & Industry. Very often it's because of these whores that our children are safe from sexual predators. They face the brunt of society's evil.”
Finally, Suchitra said, “and for this tweet i love & respect u more than ever @renukash Big hugs. Lets all keep talking - dialogue & communication is the key.” A good conversation by both the stars ended up in a decent note.
