“TRUTH OR DARE” - Exhibition Text written by Sandeep Biswas  

“While the truth can be disguised, one must dare to question its intent.” Through the exhibition “ Truth or Dare”, we put together visual stories by a few women photographers and film makers, who have sensitively explored this changing world of women from various stratas of life in India. These are a few success stories of these handful of individuals who gathered immense strength and courage to fight, break out ,and create a change within their lives in a strongly conventional patriarchal society. These images depict a new modern era ofi gender egalitarianism and societal evolution, as a much desired achievement for humanity. Yet, a lot needs to be pondered upon before we call ourselves a fair and an evolved race.
