American Goth Girl in London

I live in a perpetual state of wonder on my quest for whimsy, the oddly beautiful, the beautifully odd, and the perfect cup of coffee. The latter is particularly elusive in a country of tea drinkers.
"The Gulabi gang (from Hindi gulabi, "pink", transln. "pink gang") is a group of women vigilantes and activists originally from Banda in Bundelkhand district, Uttar Pradesh, India, but reported to be active across North India as of 2010. It is named after the pink saris worn by its members.The gang was founded in 2006 by Sampat Pal Devi, a mother
of five and former government health worker (and a former child bride), as a response to widespread domestic abuse and other violence against women. Gulabis visit abusive husbands and beat them up with laathis (bamboo sticks) unless they stop abusing their wives. In 2008, they stormed an electricity office in Banda district and forced officials to turn back the power they had cut in order to extract bribes. They have also stopped child marriages and protested dowry and female illiteracy.”
