Sona Mohapatra gives IIT-Bombay a befitting reply after they asked her to perform with a man at Mood Indigo

Sona Mohapatra has always stood up to sexism and feminism. Even if it cost her a lot of hate on social media. The singer was in the news last time for facing backlash and threats from Salman Khan fans after she put out an angry tweet against the actor. The singer had been invited to perform at IIT-Bombay’s biggest festival, Mood Indigo but they put a clause that she will have to perform with a man. The actress took to her Facebook page to slam IIT Bombay for being so sexist and yet claiming to be Asia’s biggest cultural fiesta. She further writes that she has been getting calls from the committee for the last couple of years but with this particular condition.

The actress wrote a very long post on how feminism is a far cry. The actress also explains why she felt the need to write this letter. She says in her post,” it is gut wrenching & it takes effort & all the love in my heart for my country to do so. That the premiere educational institutes of the country are blindly propagating such values while the government is putting a spotlight on the plight of the ‘Beti’s’ in the country in their public campaigns in 2016 is ironical. You ought to be leading the way in my not so humble opinion not just counting on the government for everything. You have no business being in the business of education using this country’s tax-payers money when you do not pursue its constitutional ideals. That your students are supposedly the top ‘intellect’ of our country & are being groomed to be in the top echelons of our country’s future scares me.” (ALSO READ: Sona Mohapatra: Who will put us out of work? Salman Khan??!! That ‘talented’ thug?)

She also added few pictures of all the campaigns of Mood I to prove her point and we couldn’t agree with her more. Sona reveals that she was, in fact, asked to not to post this but the actress couldn’t contain her anger and disappointment. She says,” I am proud of the fact that I do not add ‘glamour’ in other music directors ‘troupes’, get any work from them whatsoever & have yet lasted out & am playing 2-3 hour uncompromising concert sets in the biggest stages of the country. I am the most proud of the fact that my audience & fans love me for my own music & for being myself. My work with Ram Sampath is basis an equal work partnership where both of us contribute to a project, 50/50. Nothing more, nothing less. No favours given or taken. Only mutual respect. I have a young band of amazing musicians, all men at this point & all of whom have no issues backing a female solo artiste. In fact, they are unaware of my gender I believe. They tell me when I’m great on stage & are equally okay telling me if I’ve had an off day. I have a life partner who shares the same value & belief system & is unstintingly committed to the cause of equality of all kinds in society. These are MEN amongst MEN”

Sona is one those celebrities who has always stood up for what she believes in, even if it means facing a lot of hate and backlash on social media. Do you agree with her? Post your thoughts in the comments below and stay hooked with us for more.
