#MeToo Movement brought high and mighty on knees

The #MeToo tsunami had swept away the fragile egos and reputation of high and mighty in India from the field of cinema, advertisement, literature and many other fields where women took shelter under the #MeToo umbrella and exposed many men while narrating tales of their sexual exploitation and molestation. New names came popping up with each passing day and the male bastion of false ego and vanity came crumbling down.

The government's response was lukewarm first

The government reacted to the MeToo tsunami sweeping the entire country off its feet. It was initiated by producer-writer Vinta Nanda and when the troubled waters dreached the doorsteps of the Modi government, things took a real serious turn. Union Minister MJ Akbar was put in dock by a female journalist and then all hell broke loose, when as many as nine female journalist shared their part of MeToo horror stories with the then veteran journalist and editor and now a senior BJP man MJ Akbar.
