If a woman's worth is just beneath her clothes, and her prize beneath her legs, then abolish all women goddesses from the Hindu culture. Some of us are saying that the world is going to end on 21st this month. You are wrong if you live in India. For us, the world has already ended.
Things have changed in India dramatically. The fact that I am blogging here (after ages) simply means that it has effected me a lot, a lot. And it's not just one Delhi incident that happened last Sunday night. It's a serial that gets repeated now and then, every year, every week, every day.
I am not giving sympathy to that girl, whoever she is, wherever she lives, whatever she does. What was her fault? Going out independently and doing what se liked to do? Isn't that a right of every human being out there? And why was she chosen for such a brutal, violent crime?

Do we need to be reminded now an then, after an unfortunate gets raped, that we need stronger laws to deal with these things? Why doesn't it comes through our conscience automatically? This will die soon, that's the brutal reality. We all will get busy with our own lives and work, until some other woman gets raped here, and we, so called “civil society” will again engage ourselves in news hour debates, facebook and twitter posts and shares, and maybe, marches and candle lights walks. It shows that we are not robots, we do have some emotions. But is that enough?
Sponsored: Want to start your own blog like us? For that you will need two things, a domain and a host. A domain is like a face of your blog, its the address that users type into the browser address bar to reach a site, e,g. google.com, facebook.com, linuxb.in etc. If a domain is already taken, you cannot get it. Choosing a good name is the first step towards a successful blog. Another thing that you will need is a host. A host stores the files of your blog in their web servers. Most probably you will need a CMS (content management system) software to get started with your site. The good news is, the best ones are free, e.g. Drupal, Wordpress, Joomla etc.
However, the domain name and the space comes mostly for price, unless you are planning to get a free domain and host which are too much unrelaible. Your site may be down anyday and you will lost whatever you have blogged till date. Just for our readers, our sponsors, DomainPromoCodes.com has come together with us to bring domain and hosting at cheap rates. You can get upto 80% discounts on your domain as well as hosts with hundreds of promo codes listed on their site.

Today its someone I don't know. Tomorrow it can be my friend, wife or sister. And even if its someone related to me, what will I be able to do? Lodge a case, a FIR, that's it. Maybe police will nab the culprits and put them behind bars. But will it stop? We are just curing the symptoms, not the disease.
I am not going to posts the details of what happened here. You can find some better sources elsewhere. I am just posting what I feel. And honestly, I feel nothing. Maybe I am too helpless, speechless, strengthless or all the same together. Sometimes I, as a human being feel so weak, weak to do whats wanted, whats needed. How much time will it take us to realize that what we, people, security forces, and the government is doing is just not enough.
I used to pride myself being a Hindu. We worship women, and goddesses like Kali, Durga etc are respected thought India across state, borders and territories. At the same time we molest them, tease them, make them feel insecure, and try to control them at every path of our lives. Why this double standard attitude?
If a woman's worth is just beneath her clothes, and her prize beneath her legs, then abolish all women goddesses from the Hindu culture. Thats we really are. There is no need of show off to the world that we are one of the oldest civilizations in the world that respect women the most. Its better we show our true colors and how inhuman we are as Indians.
All my life, my parents have told me to not do things that I may be ashamed. But its the first time I am feeling shameful, for being a man, a human, an Indian, and not being able to do enough. I would like to know if there is something I can do that can change our future.
