Taapsee Pannu has a golden heart, and her concern about women’s security is making her the leading face of “women empowerment” in India.
Recently, she drafted the letter to the principal of her school, Mata Jai Kaur Public School in Ashok Vihar, Delhi and the authorities of her college Guru Tegh Bahadur Institute of Technology in New Delhi, requesting to start self-defence coaching classes for girls. Here’s the letter:
Tapsee says on this matter,
I think with the given situation we are in it’s important to empower girls from a young age and I feel self defense as a concept has nothing to do with someone’s sex. One should be strong and should be able to learn how to tackle a situation should it arise where their security is being threatened.
I think a change always starts with small steps and for me that was to reach out to my school and request and assist them to begin a course for self defence for students from a young age. The idea isn’t to just let them learn how to combat but also understand the importance of self security and know when to utilise their self defence knowledge.
Good Going Taapsee!!
