On the one hand, we are celebrating Navratri and worshipping Goddess Durga, and on the other, big names from the entertainment and media industry are being accused of sexual harassment against women. While we show utmost dedication and devotion when it comes to offering prayers to the goddess, how much solidarity do we show when a woman is discriminated, oppressed or abused?
 
Every year, we worship the nine forms of the goddess, but shouldn’t we also worship female power and show respect to everyday women? It’s time we changed our mindset and worked towards a progressive society. We ought to protect our sisters, mothers, female co-workers, friends, daughters and ensure that they get equal rights and the respect they deserve. 

Make-up artists and photographers from Kolkata have done special shoots to make us aware of the divine power of women.
