Mitesh Take on Domestic Violence during Lockdown

 

The initiative from Moving Pictures Theatre and Marc Green and Lucy Nordberg continues apace.

Mitesh Take has sent, to the From Home initiative, this thought-provoking and original video focussing on domestic violence during lockdown.

Mitesh says:

“Due to the coronavirus pandemic, a married middle class Indian couple is in a lockdown situation. The wife stands against the domestic violence and becomes a DURGA – the goddess of war.
DURGA (Sanskrit: दुर्गा, IAST: Durgā), identified as Adi Parashakti, is a principal and popular form of the Hindu Goddess. She is a goddess of war, the warrior form of Parvati, whose mythology centres around combating evils and demonic forces that threaten peace, prosperity and Dharma, the power of good over evil.”
