An over-enthusiastic couple lived with their old school typical family. Feared by the grip of old school thoughts the couple always wished for a boy child, but God had different plans for their angel. The couple was blessed with a beautiful daughter. The family refused to hold the baby girl who once dreamt for a baby boy as their grandchild. The couple was abandoned and they moved in a city far away from the old traditions. Many years later, the beautiful girl known as Keya asked about her grandparents but the couple always denied the presence and the secret was never unfolded. She became a sociologist and learnt about the atrocities of the society. Keya soon got placed in an NGO which worked towards the upliftment of women in the society. She travelled to various villages and became a renowned change maker. There are two types of secrets; those we hide from others and those we hide from ourselves. The day came when her parents told her everything about her grandparents and how they fought for her life. She then moved into the same village and went into a weekly Gram Panchayat meeting. She remembered her parent’s scars’, their struggle, their fights, and their sorrows. In the open, she narrated a story on how her parents were abandoned from a village because of a birth of a girl child. Her words aimed directly at the insensitive old school thoughts. She connected with the emotions of the villagers through her words. She developed a disturbance among the villagers. Her sensitive yet strong words gripped the minds of all. She quoted, “A baby girl…one of the most beautiful miracles in life, one of the greatest joys we can ever know, and one of the reasons why there is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happiness in our world today.” The meet got over and she went to her grandparents and made her realized who she was. The grandparents were ashamed but were ready to accept the family. But that time had passed, the struggle of her parents was still fresh in her heart. She denied and thus SHE WAS THE 007- LICENSE TO KILL WITH WORDS.
