A Brave Girl of Humanity: Malala Yousafzai

This post is in response to Shafali’s Creativity Carnival – “Girl”. Shafali has created a cue art of a Girl and asked us to respond to it with a post using her cue art.

So here is my take.

Girl

By the mention of girl, I immediately think of Malala Yousafzai, the brave girl who fights for the rights of socially and educationally oppressed girls.

She came to limelight at her tender age of only 15 years, when she was shot at by some militant groups while travelling in a school bus at Swat valley of Pakistan. The news spread to all corners of the world that a small school girl has been fighting with the Taliban militants even from her much tender age who were controlling and suppressing the freedom of women and girls. A new hope was born to all women and school going girls and she received much applause and support from all angles.

Malala started spreading awareness among people about the atrocities on women and girls through blog posts and meetings. She was the main person for introduction of the Right to Education Bill and other international laws related to education and protection of girl students and women. She even runs a Malala Charity Trust to help girls and women all over the world. She bagged many awards and the Noble Peace Prize also in 2014.

Now, the girls need not fear and tremble before crimes and atrocities. They have many laws to protect them, if only they can be willing enough to make use of them and prosper in all fields of life.

  1. Thank you Mr. Venkatachary – for always finding light in darkness. Malala often makes me think of the other girl who was with her, whose name we don’t remember, but who was hurt and never flown out of Pakistan for her treatment. On one hand it makes me think of random events shaping our lives, on the other, it makes me think of people who have the gumption to use random events to change not just their lives but of those around them. Thank you for participating. It’s always a pleasure to read your thoughts on my cue-art 🙂

  2. Thanks for this nice comment and feedback. You are right. There are people who succumb to circumstances and become submissive. And others are there who mould circumstances to suit their requirements or use them for the betterment of people around them also. We should try to learn from such brave and inspiring people.
