Photo Series : Stop Bullying #WordsHurt

These photos might give you a fresh perspective on Bullying in Colleges and the CHOICE of WORDS used.

Hey everybody,

Today we are presenting a photo series highlighting that words do hurt. A lot is often said in jest and for the sake of “fun” in colleges and close peer groups, but we often forget to ask – is it really harmless to all? Many students drop out or change colleges because of repeated bullying. It’s high time we change this reality.

These photos might give you a fresh perspective on Bullying in Colleges and the CHOICE of WORDS used. Let’s join hands and take steps in putting a stop to this violence.

This essay was done with the students of IIT Bombay, and photographer Anisha Bajaj. Many hugs and kisses to them.

Love, Gaysi
