Don’t Mess with Sweety, the Karate Girl

I don’t have a theme to this blog per se, but if I did, it would heroes and villiians. Empowerment and the opposite. Those striving to make the world a better place and those pulling the other way. I do have a drum and I tap a steady beat to empower yourself. Like Sweety here:

Sweety, 22, a student, takes a self defence class in New Delhi, January 14, 2013. Sweety travels four hours every day from her village to the city to learn karate and taekwondo. She said, "boys in my village are scared to tease me after I beat up one boy who was passing lewd comments on me". Since a medical student died after being gang raped on a bus in New Delhi, the issue of women's security in India has been under the spotlight.
