The YouTube video which which was posted on March 16 has been viewed nearly 240,339 times. Theatre artist Uppekha and TV host Pankhuri were disturbed with the increasing cases of rape cases in India and decided 'to do their bit to improve the situation' "We are now known as the land of rape" did you ever wonder how this took shape" they ask. Thereafter, they explained how women are treated in this country citing various examples. In the video girls are holding placards with words such as # Dpomestic violence, # misogyny # rape and # slut while they rape. Girls asked the society to stop the tweets and het on your feet and help reform the mindset. They said we are not rappers just a couple of girls trying to open your eyes.
