On Valentines day this year I traveled to Batticoloa on the east coast of Sri Lanka for The One Billion Rising event. That was for raising awairness and campaining against domestic violence.
The drums that were played are called “Parey” and are traditionaly played by men. This was the first event where they were played by woman in public. These woman drummed for their rights and for thier freedom and it was beautiful.
This symbolic act was so powerful in its message, Love and equality is the only way forward.
