Title is Untitled: First Night, No LightTitle is Untitled: First Night, No Light by Santosh Avvannavar
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Santosh has a flair for representing the bitter truth about life in a coating of sugar of humour-and this book is not an exception. The book deals with issues like gender discrimination, domestic violence, crime against woman ,but still the stories will be like a journey of fun to you –at least until you start thinking after finishing a particular story.
The story of human kind is the story of the relentless conflict between the good and the bad. Deep within our mind- human conscience tells us what is good and what are bad- but we often tend to overhear the voice. Interests drive us, passion drives us, lust drives us, greed drives us…..and we often end up being a slave of the Lucifer! Not everyone is Doctor Faustus-who will be the worshipper of truth unto his death. Often we try to dominate over the weak ……
To those who does not have any voice- and this book speaks of those voiceless. that‘s why the tile of the book is untitled.

“Men in our families are like the sun, they have a light of their own (they have resources, are mobile, have the freedom to take decisions.) Women on the other hand are like satellites, without any light of their own. They shine, if and only if, when the sun’s light touches them. This is why have to constantly compete with each other for a bigger share of sunlight, because without the life there is no life.”

Prioritizing the Linkages Between Sustainable Development Goals to Eradicate Child Marriage

"Child marriage is both a cause and consequence of the other societal ills outlined in the UN's Sustainable Development Goals," writes human rights attorney Megan E. Corrado.
