recent rape-case in Delhi has yet again proved how unsafe the world,
even more shamefully our own country, still is for what we consider as
the FRAILER sex.
Before moving to anything else I ,from the bottom
of my heart, pray for the 23 year old girl, the recent most victim of
the insatiable lust of the hounds prowling around in our society, that
she may get well soon physically and hopefully even mentally and
emotionally at least to fight against the brutality inflicted not only
on her body but also her soul. May God give her the strength to overcome
this... anguish and to rise again...
This is however, just
one incidence... There are innumerable such cases all over India and
also around the world, most not even being reported either out of shame
or fear and maybe sometimes even because of the dwindling faith of
people in the judicial system of the country. People are organizing
protest marches and stuff asking for justice for this one girl, even
talking about capital punishment for such filthy criminals. However, I'm
forced to think if the case would be the same had the girl not been
pushed so far to the brink of death with little chance of survival???! I
wonder whether just to have the littlest chance at justice the girl has
to bear such brutal bruises on her body and soul to an extent that she
might never wake up again...!!
Forgive me for being so brash
and even insensitive at such a time but why did anyone NOT come so
strongly in front to fight against such cruelty when innumerable
innocent souls were brutally bruised and killed in the past years?? Why
is that in this world, talking so highly of equality of the two sexes,
we girls still cannot be our carefree selves from the very moment we
step out of the safe havens of our home?? Why cannot we be free of the
humiliating experiences of feeling the leering stares of these wolves in
disguise of men all over us??? Why doesn't anyone stand up for us on
such instances? Why don't we ourselves fight for our own dignity?? And
the most ironical part is that the society that takes pleasure in
boasting so highly about all this damned progress and modernity of
thinking pattern, goes back to being brutally judgemental when any
untoward incident happens not leaving one chance to blame the victim
herself for the injustice inflicted, sometimes even forcing the girl to
commit suicide... Not to forget, a lot of families are to be blamed
equally!! Even now the most these supposed leaders can come up with is that 'girls should wear decent clothes... shouldn't try to compete with boys' and God knows what kind of similar disgusting statements instead of taking proper actions!!??
We are the major part of the society henceforth and
that is the reason I want to call out to all the people out there to
stop seeing and treating us women as mere objects just fit to satisfy
the never ending sexual desires of the opposite sex, things to be lusted
after, possessions to be used and thrown away like trash!!... Learn to
treat us as living, breathing humans with feelings just like the
physically STRONGER gender!! And God forbid if any untoward happens, we
need support, care and love from the people WE love and everyone who is a
part of the society and NOT disgusted glances, pointed stares or
pathetic attempts at sympathy!!
I don't know if I'm even making
any sense or if my writing all this is going to make any difference
really. It's highly probable that nobody may even give a second thought
to any of this...
I simply ask for a peaceful life to live for all women free from any kind of fear and apprehension...
