#RapAgainstRape: Mumbai girls rap against rape. Video goes viral.

A video showing two young women from Mumbai rapping against the scourge of rapes in India is going viral.

Uppekha Jain and Pankhuri Awasthi describe themselves as ‘Bombaebs’ and have titled their song, “Rap Against Rape”.

The video, posted on Monday, has already notched up nearly 30,000 hits and counting.

In a nod to the raging debate on censorship in India – in the wake of the AIB Roast furore as well as the ban on ‘India’s Daughter’ – the Bombaebs’ video begins with a disclaimer.

The girls declare that there is “nothing explicit” in the video but says: “It’s just that the reality for women in India is Explicit.”

The bombaebs say they are “just a couple of girls trying to open their viewers’ eyes” and appealing for more men who have the courage and integrity to say “Meri Beti Meri Shaan”.
