I recently came across Barkha Dutt's viral interview clip in which she lambasts a foreign reporter who describes India as unsafe for girls. Like many others, my initial reaction was to feel pride in my childhood idol. But as her response slowly started sinking in, I started to feel uneasy. My gut did not agree with her. Though her arguments sounded reasonable, I knew that her facts were part of an incomplete story. I decided to investigate and dig out the complete truth about the plight of India's women.
