Thank You Induji.
Savdhaan India, Jan 2, 2013

While the world celebrates the coming of the new year, Savdhaan India is focusing especially on crimes against women. A sad reality one has to acknowledge, and while we would want to wish it away, we cannot.

Normally, as a security measure, women, in fact everyone, is warned to stay away from strangers'. But in this episode, no one was hypothetically a stranger to Kaajal. She worked at a BPO, and her life was completely wrapped up in the office and home, so her daily contact was only with office colleagues, her husband, and the regular driver, Shambhu, of the taxi that was provided by her office to ferry her and her peers back and from office. So how come she was still endangered?

This was a classic and tragic case of sexual harassment in office and harassment from a completely self-centred and insensitive male chauvinistic husband at home. Caught in this web, Kaajal remained upset and distraught, and only young Urmila at office, who had recently joined, was privy to Kaajal's trauma. 

The team leader, the immediate boss, was a lecherous man who wouldn't miss any opportunity to make a pass at the girls. Almost as soon as she joined, Urmila was thus humiliated by a leery-eyed boss, and seeing her upset, Kaajal knew what was wrong. She accosted the boss and warned him yet again. 

As Monish Bahl warns, women must not accept any such lewd advances; they must inform somebody. In fact a telephone number, 1091, is even provided for women to seek help. Mohnish appeals: call, seek help, do not take any of this lying down. 

Ironically, Kaajal did! She sought help from where a woman would turn to first, her husband! For months now she had been telling her him of her quandary, and in fact was anxious to quit her job. But then she was one of those unfortunate women, who was wedded to a selfish man who was obsessed with wealth, with false values of owning a bigger house, having better material comforts, at the cost of his wife's self-esteem and dignity.

In office, it wasn't as if she was taking the lecherous advances meekly. At one point, Kaajal slapped the boss; at another, when he suggested he could get her promoted if she would "please" him, she berated him within the hearing of the entire staff. The only mistake was that this complaint was not taken to higher authorities in the office, to a women's cell, or to the police. The distraught Kaajal's plea to her selfish husband was yet again thwarted' and then Kaajal went missing'

Kaajal's mother, her colleague, and her uncle went to the police' a very proactive and alert police officer cooperated instantly, the enquiries revealed the unwelcome advances of the team leader in office, of the callous husband' and then the enquiry boiled down to the unexplained change in taxi driver, and the timing of when she was last seen or heard of was ambiguous ' after a few days, Kaajal's brutalized body, in a decayed state is found in a garbage dump. Post-mortem revealed rape, and the suspicion was on the two men who had made her life miserable ' a husband who did not even care enough to report her missing after 2 days, and a boss, whose nefarious intent was well known. But the police still did not have the hard-core proof against either of them till the focus moved in another direction. 

Shambhu the taxi driver was coincidentally "unavailable" since Kaajal went missing. Then it was just a matter of time and efficient pursuing by the police before he was accosted, and made to confess to police third degree. His carnal desire for Kaajal; his awareness that she remained distraught and distracted most of the time, and the fact that she trusted him as one does a person one has day-to-day dealings with. While the criminal was Shambhu, her husband and boss could not be exonerated for the negative influences in her life. In retrospect one is left with unanswered alternatives; "If only" her life partner had not been so callous; "if only" the office people had reacted earlier; if only there had been more alertness towards the safety and security of the women employees. As Mohnish says, by merely providing transport the company cannot absolve itself. Had the transport company done the necessary verification of drivers and other security personnel?

Mohnish rounds up this episode, yet another grisly crime against women, with many earnest, heartfelt, and even stern warnings that need to be actively adhered to by one and all. Do not ignore the malevolent advances of your peers, bosses or any other man; if you, as a woman, have odd working hours, ensure that when being picked up or dropped you are not alone in the vehicle. While it is the moral responsibility of the organization to ensure this, you must also remain aware and alert. Ask a trustworthy male colleague to accompany you, even up to your house, if necessary. If at all, however, circumstances are such that you are per force alone in the taxi, ensure you inform a family member or colleague of your whereabouts there and then.

It is a sad commentary on the state of affairs in our country and in our cities. That while India is supposed to be "shining", the crimes against women are increasing. So rally around, be alert, and let us turn the tables on this horrible trend, Let us FIGHT BACK!

Chitra thanks I endorse you .You have spoken my heart about the grisly crime against Kajal and Mohnish's performance in detail. He is unparralelled in making us all alert against the perils faced by working women at home and in office.She was raped and murdered becuse of the carnal desire of Shambhu who took advantage of her distraught metal state but her husband and boss re equally to be blamed.
And the transport company's negligence ,not verifying their employees before recruiting them.
last of all we ourselves have to be alert for our safety.

Thank you Induji.
Savdhaan India raises many questions in the mind, and Mohnish Bahl firmly tries to shake us out of complacency. As he has personally pointed out, it is most disturbing that human beings perpetrate such indignities and cruelty on other human beings. And there is no justification at all that any one should accept any kind of physical and mental torture as inflicted by another. There are laws in our society that are meant to help each person in diverse situations; laws that are aimed to correcting any kind of injustice. There are voluntary organizations where one can go and seek advise and help. But human beings avoid seeking that help out a sense of shame, fear of personal safety or retribution, ego, or even personal greed, which at times triggers the path of injustice and violence in the first place. As in this case, one cannot shut ones eyes to the fact that it was Bhaskar's "need" for money, which was the weakness within him, that Maya was able to fuel, and then make the instrument for her power of him. One somehow finds domestic violence against the physically weaker woman, aging parents, physically handicapped persons, or helpless children somehow believable (though totally unacceptable); but against a young man? So is there a deep-seated weakness within that person, which allows the first step of injustice?

Domestic violence is an additional insult to injury. Within the precincts of ones home we expect the trust, faith, security and joy, which we are naturally wary of in the "big bad world". And violence against children, dependent parents, siblings and spouses needs to be condemned vociferously, as India Fights Back!

Thank you Induji.Smile

Mohnish Bahl poses the critical question: what had happened to trigger this heinous crime? Rupali is no more, and her sister and son are in no condition to give any explanation. The prime witness, Sukhi, talks of three strange men barging in, manhandling him, and his hiding and locking himself up in the bathroom where apparently he is unconscious and before he could think of doing anything to help the culprits had perpetrated the brutal carnage and gone. The police runs through all local "crooks", troublemakers and inside informants, trying to get to the culprits… but from all aspects they reach a dead-end. Who were the real culprits? What was the motive? 

Mohnish emphasizes the police skepticism; there is no obvious motive, nothing seems to fall into place. Then, with Rushali gaining consciousness, although continuing to be critical, a new window opens for the police investigation. She manages to say that her "didi" [Rupali] hit her! A shocked Vinod and astounded police ask her why, but that is all she manages to utter before she gasps again for breathe. 

As Mohnish narrates, Rushali's statement changes the entire face of the case. From the assumption that three strangers had forcibly entered Vinod Khuswa's house and created havoc, now, based on Rushali's statement, the question is what could be behind Rupali's brutal fatal attack on her sister? Further, based on this evidence, Sukhi's earlier statements are proved false. Why had he lied? So the police brings Sukhi back for interrogation. 

Mohnish very empathetically explains Vinod's state of mind. He is absolutely stunned on hearing this tale. That night Rushali also loses her battle for life. The police does not even get the chance to crosscheck Sukhi's new statement with Rushali. But based on what she had managed to say and linking it with Sukhi's sensational revelation, the police sets out for Shekhar. They find him and he protests vehemently against the allegations. Vinod loses his composure when he sees his wife's alleged paramour and subsequent murderer. Collecting further "evidence" of phone records and past track records from college, Shekhar is arrested. The police is now convinced that they are on the right track to solve the case. But Mohnish Bahl pointedly brings us to Vinod's precarious state of mind. His son is battling for life, and most pertinently, he cannot accept that his loving wife Rupali could have possibly betrayed his trust thus. Tragically, to answer his questions and put his mind to rest, Rupali is not alive. 

Mohnish Bahl now brings us the candid analysis, yes Sukhi is arrested and is in jail. Vinod had literary picked up a 13-year old street urchin and given him shelter in his home. He took care of his education and treated him like a member of the family. And this boy, after 5 years of being "part of the family" destroyed it. Many of us in trying to help a destitute child, might do the same, bring the child home, reiterates Mohnish. But statistics show that 64 per cent juvenile criminals are 16-18 year olds. As per psychiatrist or psychoanalyst statistics, the "needs" or "desires" of a 12 or 13-year old are different to those of an 18-year-old boy or man. Vinod failed to recognize this. For this one simple error of judgment, Vinod had to pay a very heavy price. Mohnish warns, that if we come across any "needy" child it is advisable to put them in the care of an appropriate NGO, where they are given direction in a proper and appropriate manner. 

As his careful parting advise, Mohnish reassures that of course we must trust people around us, but with that trust we must also exercise caution. We must observe everyone we associate with – be it our friends, relatives or domestic helps. It is important to ensure that are they in good company and have healthy habits. In this caution lies our safety. With these words Mohnish one again emphasizes the spirit to fight back in Savdhaan India!
