It is quite heart-breaking how even in 21st century, we hear stories of so many well-educated women suffering the domestic abuse in silence. Rather fighting for their rights, they chose to stay quiet in an abusive marriage. Recently, we stumbled over a powerful speech by Gujarat IPS officer Shobha Bhutada on the similar lines of educated women suffering in an abusive marriage.
In her powerful inspiring video, she quoted how education is not just degree. And, if our education doesn’t give us courage to live with dignity, it is useless.
“Education is not about a degree. Education is not about information or about salary packages. It can be all these things to some extent, yet education is beyond all this,” said the Bharuch SP at the 2018 annual function of an engineering college in Porbandar, Gujarat.
IPS officer Shobha Bhutada stressed that woman’s education is precious and should not be wasted on abusive relationships.
“I have seen even super specialist doctor ladies are victims of domestic violence. If education is not giving you the desired courage, then it is useless,” she mentioned.
Here’s the inspiring video:
