Swara Bhaskar has always been at the forefront of social causes and is known for voicing her opinion against issues related to women’s safety, education and others affecting the society.
This time, Swara has lent her support to campaign against child sexual abuse. The versatile actress, who strongly believes against the cruel act, has shot for a special video creating awareness regarding the same. In the video, Swara is seen narrating poetries for kids also revealing the shameful act which is unfortunately prevalent in our society.
According to an in-depth survey on child sexual abuse in the country disclosed that every second child has been subjected to one or more forms of sexual abuse.
Swara says, Quote : We all know that CSA is prevalent in our society but to this extent?? Really made me feel that I should raise my voice and do everything I can to increase awareness and dialogue in the society.
People don’t want to talk about it. Most of the smaller incidents are dismissed. And these poems are written by Manish Gupta paint an extremely gory picture but this is our reality today and we should be ashamed of it.
This video is part of a ‘Hindi Kavita’ project that is not just a YouTube channel – it’s a social revolution. Primarily, they are dedicated to make Hindi / Urdu cool and more aspirational. When they shared the data that every other child is affected by CSA, I was shocked. There was no way I could stay away from such a cause.
