Singer Chinmayi Sripada known for her melodious voice and popular songs is now facing discrimination ever since she exposed top celebrities like lyricist Vairamuthu during MeToo movement.
Recently a fan came with a question saying “@Chinmayi - you sing really well; bold, beautiful, supremely confident & therefore a role model. But how nice it would be if only you present all these characteristics clad in a saree or any Indian dress. Young girls should associate positive, good characteristics w/ indianness.”
Chinmayee came with a shocking reply saying “When I wear a sari there are groups of men who take photographs of my waist + side of my chest, circle it and upload it on soft p**n websites. And then I get messages on how they are mas******ing to it. I can be Indian in a sari and in jeans, Sir.”
She continued saying “I can send you some screenshots and sample Photos if you want. There is one set of am average Indian man who is a pervert and hence women in public life are forced to covered top to bottom in weather conditions like India where we’d rather wear sleeveless and skirts. But No.
Women have to dress to not ‘trigger’ perverts in society. Men aren’t chided or rapped on their knuckles for this behavior. On that note so many women had complained - wondering if any of the women’s organisations took suo motu cognisance and filed a case on their behalf?”
