Couldn't spread women empowerment message: Sampat Pal

New Delhi, Nov 10 (IANS) Gulabi Gang leader Sampat Pal's main motive behind entering reality show "Bigg Boss 6" was to spread the message of women empowerment inside the house. But she says she couldn't do so because of everyone's "game".

"I was unable to give a good message to the women and to the world because everyone was busy playing their own game inside the house. I did not know whom to talk to. Should I talk to the wall or the flowers," Pal told IANS.

"I come from a poor background and I have lived and served the poor all my life. How would big people (celebrities) understand me," she added.

Pal, who has mentored huge groups of women to stand against injustice and hails from Bundelkhand, Madhya Pradesh says she never understood the meaning of "game" until she entered the "Bigg Boss" house.

"I did not know what game means but I knew that in my village, in my language, it means pacharna (defeating). In our village people used to gossip about others, talking ill about them and bring them down. There was no one to tell me what 'game' actually meant and there were not many people who would talk to me (in the house)," she said.

Asked if it was difficult to adjust with high profile celebrities, Pal says it did not affect her, but their cunning attitude took her by surprise.

"I did not find it difficult (adjusting with celebrities). Neither did their lifestyle affect me nor did mine affect them. I wear a sari. I have been to many countries and this is nothing new to me. I just did not know this game and people would be so cunning," said the 50-year-old.

However, the social activist is open to the idea of re-entering the house, if invited.

"If they call me back, I will again go inside. What problem can I have and if they want me there again?

"My heart is my award. I have come from a poor background and now everyone knows me. There cannot be any better award for me," she said.
