Sampat Pal Devi the self proclaimed commander in chief of “Gulabi (pink) gang” of Bundelkhand, Uttarpradesh.
It started with Sampat Pal Devi’s attempt to save a woman being mercilessly beaten by her husband, that ended up first in that abuser husband abusing her also and finally begging for mercy when she returned with a group of women and delivered him a little of his own medicine.
Now she claims that she has 2 lakh members for her gang, they submit some fees for inclusion and are given a pink sari and stick as token of membership.
This gang not only saves women from atrocities but acts against all sort of corrupted activities in the area, government or non government!
Well, it’s a really good thing if they don’t go overboard!
