I Taak Naansense is nothing but a place where we bring up issues and questions related to the basic women rights that our society outrightly rejects saying “what nonsense”. But, till when? Till when are we going to take it saying “naari jeewan aise hi hota hai” “itna adjust toh karna hi padta hai”. Why? Why adjust? Why not question instead? There’s just one life that we’ve got. We cannot waste it pleasing the hollow society, can we? Let’s loosen the ropes and set ourselves free. Let’s come together and rise above the rules. Let’s start questioning. And if they say “Whaaat Naaansense!” Then let’s say it out loud and clear, yes, #ITaakNaansense. It’s time to speak out.
The founder and author of I Taak Naansense, she hates to see how women have accepted the shackles offered by the society in exchange of “respect”. She believes that no one else is responsible for all the injustice happening against women. If we cannot take a stand for ourselves, we have no right to blame others. She has risen above all the odds in her life herself and she wants to help out all the other women do the same.
The co-founder of I Taak Naansense, Anku is a girl who herself has broken all the stereotypes against women. She is a strong headed independent girl who takes her decisions herself and clearly knows what she wants from life. She believes that a woman does not need a man to complete her. If at all she needs anything, then it’s a companion who is in no way superior to her. If someone tries to take control of you then that’s not called companionship, that’s slavery. And she, at no cost, is up for slavery. This is the message that she wants to spread through this platform.
He is our root. Our inspiration. He has his own soulful way of leading his life. “Chale leek par jo raahi unhe manzilen mubaarak, maine umr kaat daali naye raaste banaane me” – the lines from one of his poems that aptly defines him. He is the support for the needy. He the mirror for the lost. He is the set of principles that we all would yearn to live by. He is the solution to all sorts of problems. He is here to help everyone who needs help. He is our guiding star.
She can be fierce. That’s the only word that could comprehend the amount of brave she is. She drags the eve-teasers by collar all alone and she beats up the shit out of them until they start to beg for mercy. She believes that not the slightest move towards the intrusion of privacy of women should be spared and herself sets an example for all the women to come forward, speak out and take a stand for themselves.
