"True equality means holding everyone accountable in same way, regardless of race, gender, faith and ethnicity - political ethnicity". My name is Madhurima Athri, a law student studying at BMS law college banglore, the IT capital of India where most of population resides as Engineers, there I am a upcoming lawyer who took this path not for money making but with a vision for creating a better world , place for everyone to live with freedom, liberty , happiness and equality for each one of them whose will is to rise as a equal citizen.

Growing up, I always wanted to be just like my dad. My dad is a lawyer and I remember thinking, if he’s a lawyer then I want to be a lawyer, too. I went all the way into college telling everyone that I was going to be a lawyer, without ever questioning whether this really was the right path for me, or why. I never had passion for wanting to be an attorney - until I did. I now practice in family law, where survivors of domestic violence can apply to the family court for protection from their abusers. While family law most frequently involves divorce and child custody proceedings, many cases often include domestic abuse in varying degrees. I chose to be an advocate for survivors of domestic violence because I personally know what it’s like to survive abuse all the while longing for protection yet being too afraid to ask. Through my own experiences, I hope to provide just, fair, and appropriate support services; a clear understanding of the law; and an awareness of who the key players are in the court process and who will provide survivors with the protection they deserve. It’s easy to say “get out,” but many survivors of domestic abuse feel that they lack the appropriate support to enable them to positively alter their situation. My hope is to provide the necessary support that someone may so desperately need. I know I sure as hell could have used it.
  
The social structure that prevails since long in such a way that girls do not get equal opportunities as men. Women generally are the caregivers in the family. Because of this, women are mostly involved in household activities. There is lesser participation of women in higher education, decision-making roles, and leadership roles. This gender disparity is a hindrance in the growth rate of a country. And I want to contribute a part of the change that would be brought one day and each one regardless of whatever condition , will have a quality life
