DLF Cyber Hub, Gurgaon] Book was unveiled by Dr. R Bhola (Renowned Doctor), Mr. Sanjeev Bijli (Owner – PVR Cinema), Dr. Sanjay Kaushik ( Chairman – Paramount Group (India)), Ms. Shalini Wadhwa (Founder – Festival of Hope), Mr. Avneesh Saran ( Counsel – Government of India, Advocate – Supreme Court), Mr. Abhijeet Sinha – (Delhi based Author & Member – UNICEF), Ms. Bhavna Bajaj ( Advocate & Social Activist), Ms. Alka Singh (Singer) at the Festival of HOPE Season 5.
Authors introduced their debut work, ‘Title is Untitled: First Night, No Light,’ released at the Festival of Hope in Delhi, November 22, 2014. ‘Title is Untitled’ is a unique social commentary, focused on the issue of rape and the social institutions that enable it in urban and rural India. Instead of relying solely on statistics to present their argument, Avvannavar, Srivastava and Babu Are utilize fictitious stories to serve as ‘case studies’ about how women are treated in Indian society. The book covers a myriad of interwoven topics, including education, early-arranged marriage and brothel trafficking. The authors tackle serious issues in a novel format, even throwing in a healthy dose of humor towards the end of the book.
Indian actor and director Kabir Sadanand offers advance praise for the work, “We must understand [rape victims] don’t need our sympathy, what they need is our commitment to stand by them. The initiative and courage to do the same as shown by the authors is inspirational.”
We present a unique book of facts blended with fiction to spread more awareness in our society. Facts about various problems in the present urban and rural societies of India are presented wrapped in fiction, like case studies to elaborate them. Women of our country are often victims to most issues like rape, marital rape, prostitution, child marriage, child trafficking and others. Not to ignore the men who are also victims to women framing them in false cases of impotency and domestic violence. There are eleven chapters presented in this book which deal with different such cases – both men and women – and try to create a little awareness in our educated society.
