Having received a record rainfall, the highest in 115 years this monsoon, which has left its roads and homes flooded and even washed away a few people, Bengaluru is now witnessing the inevitable outbreak of disease.

Two words to break the silence
Overnight, these two simple words have become so powerful that they can probably move a mountain. People are always stronger in a group and such a campaign is giving them courage to speak up.

Aloud they declare: We too
Women across the world, across ages and races, can relate, nod to each other and say 'me too'. The world needs to know this is really happening, and women need to acknowledge it has happened to them.
