It is liberating to hear a young woman speaking about her sexuality, especially on a public platform like this.. Of course we have sexual feelings, but no one acknowledges it.

It’s easy to follow instructions and rules, especially coming from seniors, even if it makes you uncomfortable. As youth, we need to learn to question and to take responsibility.

Many NGOs work with youth, where they get a platform to learn and grow. At Raahi however, Anubhuti has ensured from the beginning that the group remains our own. They do not own it or control us. We have ownership over everything – from naming the group to making our code of conduct to drafting our values. When Anubhuti members say they believe in Democracy, they really do.
