While speaking to ANI, the actor passed on a message to the people who are still scared of speaking out, saying the time has come to do the same. "We are surrounded by people who will support us. If you fail to speak up now, you will have to live with it forever," said the 29-year-old. She further stressed, "The thing worse than this would be to not be able to punish those men who have done them wrong. They will just be living a normal life and will get more freedom to do the same to someone else as well."

|Carnatic Vocal Arangetram: Hamsa Shanmugam|
by Janani Swamy
The thorough grounding in fundamentals is a given when it comes to the students of Smt. Tara Anand- that in itself no mean feat. In the case of Hamsa Shanmugam, what was striking was her complete command and control throughout the 4 hour recital. There was not one moment of doubt or hesitation as she occupied the stage with the self-assurance of a seasoned musician. Hamsa has a natural ease with manodharma- the extemporaneous aspects of Carnatic music- and presented the creative elements with a sharp understanding of the many grammatical nuances that comprise the whole of the Carnatic idiom.
