Later she shared that she has been receiving messages comments like “When is your divorce” from some users. She said that she shut the trolls by saying, “ Live and let live.”

In a long note in her Instagram story,” Hi Guys, When is my divorce? Getting messages like etc. Just because I am wearing a Swimsuit? Whoa. Get out, 1920 aunts and uncles. Come in 2021! The problem is not the negative comments. But the way we think as a society if a woman’s clothes are the reason for her divorce, shouldn’t everyone be in a ‘dressed properly’ happy marriage? He told me to ignore it and not address it. But I can’t just brush it off”.

She continues,” I can’t change your toxic, narrow-minded, or extremely regressive outlook on life. I hope the women in your life stand up to the sexiest, oppressive, and downright degrading ways in which you view a woman and her personality, Live and Let Live.”

During her stay in the Maldives, Vidyulekha Raman had posted several photos on her Instagram and one was wearing the yellow floral swimsuit that led to a volley of comments from her followers on the social media platform.

Why are people so much worried at what a woman wear and post. It’s her personal liberty and much awareness is required in our society to have a free and open mind among the people.”
