We conquered the cage, made it ours. We laughed when it was banned , we loved when it was forbidden. When they were shouting and protesting for someone to change their lives, we changed it ourselves with no ones permission. We lived when life was unallowed and damn, we lived it truely!

“I feel that God made my body perfect the way I was born. Then man robbed me, took away my power, and left me a cripple. My womanhood was stolen. If God had wanted those body parts missing, why did he create them?
I just pray that one day no woman will have to experience this pain. It will become a thing of the past. People will say "Did you hear, female genital mutilation has been outlawed in Somalia?" Then the next country, and the next, and so on, until the world is safe for all women. What a happy day that will be, and that's what I'm working toward. In'shallah, if God is willing, it will happen.” – Waris Dirie, Desert Flower.
The Delhi High Court on Monday ended house arrest of human rights activist Gautam Navlakha in the Bhima Koregaon case, setting aside his transit remand. He is one of the five human rights activists arrested on August 28 from various cities on charges of having Maoist links.
The decision came three days after the Supreme Court extended the house arrest of Navlakha and four others for four weeks. The apex court's decision was a majority judgment by Chief Justice Dipak Misra and Justice AM Khanwilkar. Justice DY Chandrachud dissented, came down heavily on the Maharashtra Police and said a Special Investigation Team should be constituted in the case.
While granting relief to Navlakha, the High Court stated that the Supreme Court last week had given him the liberty to approach the appropriate forum within four weeks to seek relief, which he has availed. The court said Navlakha's detention has exceeded 24 hours, which was "untenable". “Delhi HC bench observed that the detention is untenable in law and consequently, the house arrest of Gautam Navlakha would come to an end as of now. It also didn't accede to the request of Maharashtra Police Counsel to continue extension of house arrest of Navlakha for at least 2 more days,” ANI reported.
