Recently, the documentary "India's Daughter" by British filmmaker Leslee Udwin was banned in India as it was stated to be a "conspiracy to defame India." At its rotten heart, the country is more concerned about hiding the shame than protecting its women. Women like me -- irrespective of where they are located now -- who grew up in India, know this oh-so-well that India's pride lies in worshipping the mute goddesses rather than empowering the voices of the suppressed gender.
