Ms. Chitrakar started the session with a recitation of one of her poems followed by the four participants were Ashmika Subedi, Roshni Tripathi, Krizan Khawas and Rashmi Shrestha, all students of Thames. The essence of this session was to show the power of words, elevated by one's emotions.
The event was both very intense and emotional, as it was filled with stories of dealing with sexual assault, physical violence and loneliness. Along with Ms. Chitrakar and the poets, the audience also realized that females, no matter the age group they fall in, have all experienced some sort of sexual harassment at least once in their lifetime.
