This is how Kangana, Mamata Banerjee and Shakti Mohan broke the shackles to prove #BruisesCanBeGood

Black blots, swollen eyes and bruised knees of a woman do not symbolize the evil in the society. They have a new definition now. 

Black blots, swollen eyes and bruised knees of a woman do not symbolize the evil in the society. They have a new definition now. They echo of one’s strength, freedom and the power to defeat any opponent. Yes, there have been women who broke the shackles of fragility and risen to take dreams in their hands. They proved their metal and conjectured that Bruises Can Be Good and they are absolutely Fit To Fight.

Every woman should be badly bruised & this video proves why

Shakti Mohan

When every parent wants their daughters to take up household and add a “Mrs”, “Er” or “Dr” in front of their names. Shakti Mohan came out of the cages dancing quite literally. Taking her passion forward she became India’s one of the first well-recognized dancers winning the title of a dance reality. From participating in a dance show to judging one and now setting up her dance studio, she has walked a rough path.

Kangana Ranaut

Without any doubts she has been an inspiration to many. Dwelling from hills and unversed with English, she let her performance echo of what she’s capable of. Working for blockbusters like Queen, Tanu Weds Manu and walking the red carpet at Cannes she was an answer to everybody who said that we need a “filmy family” to sustain in the entertainment industry.


A slum dweller who are generally looked down, took the stage of TedX to recite her story. How a mere girl ageing 14 empowered the children of the slum became the voice of slum and gave way to ‘Balaknama’ a one of its kind publication, that run, published and operated by the children living in slums.

Mamata Banerjee

When people were running to oppress women, she rose to power in the state of Bengal, assuring people that they have a bright future and something positive holds for them. She made people believe in her and became one of strongest personality in the Indian politics.

Mary Kom

Bringing laurels to the nations, she turned around the notion against women. Coming from a small North Eastern state, she took the charge to live her dreams. She practised hard and proved the world that the athlete is incomparable, being a woman, a mother or a small town girl.

These women of substance have proved that bruises are nothing to be feared. For in the journey of success, you sustain injuries but you are fit to fight and you have the roadmap to reach glory.
