Meet Priya, the rape-survivor superhero of India's new comic book about sexual harassment in India, called "Priya's Shakti."
She is a superhero who works not alone, but with the Hindu Goddess Parvati, in this mythological Hindu tales inspired comic book made by New York based filmmaker Ram Devineni, and drawn by graphic novel artist Dan Goldman.
Ram Devineni told BBC in an interview that the idea for Priya's Shakti came to him after country-wide protests were held in India over the gang-rape and murder of a student on a bus in Delhi, India, in December 2012.
Rape and gender-based violence survivors in India often have to go through as much as being deemed impure or being abandoned entirely by their families.
"No good girl walks alone at night."
Ram Devineni further told BBC, "I was in Delhi at the time when the protests broke out and I was involved in some of them. I was talking to a police officer when he said something that I found very surprising. He said 'no good girl walks alone at night.'
"That's where the idea began. I realised that rape and sexual violence in India was a cultural issue, and that it was backed by patriarchy, misogyny and people's perceptions."
Priya's Shakti addresses to these attitudes in a fantastical setting, still keeping the realities of an Indian rape survivor full intact.
The 'panchayat' is a regional system of governance in rural India. Normally, every village has its own council or panchayat to serve as a small court. Their rulings on cases of rape are known to often be very harsh and unfair.
