Get beaten if you stand up….Get killed if you speak up!

Is rage the primal driver behind all this India Gate/ Jantar Mantar upheaval? –The urgent need to a total overhaul of Indian criminal justice system and a process of police reform to protect our women. Are we a violent society who has lost all moral dignity? We have become proud to be intolerant and have come to accept misplaced arguments about words like liberation, equality, freedom and human rights?

Only recently a gang of at least a dozen men dragged a woman onto the road by her hair, tried to rip off her clothes and smiled at the cameras that filmed it all, a visibly warped attitude – of politicians, of police, of other women – the list is endless!

We have horribly failed to put a leash on the flooding libido – of rapists –sick predators including cops and other security personnel.


Constantly, we are forbidding a woman to put on, a pair of jeans or to have the veil on in order not to provoke male sexuality. Even reforms/laws are planned/framed on the basis of the myopic views of the predominant male vision! Are we regressing as a Society?

I also hear of as many as 28-30 sitting members of the Parliament in senior positions to have rape, sexual abuse or molestation cases pending against them. Upon inquiry, it might tumble out that many of our legislators and parliamentarians are guilty as well of complicity in other crimes against women – female foeticide, dowry deaths, domestic violence etc.

The Delhi gang rape incident might push Parliament to reform laws? Excuse me…The irony of it all! So far what’s the outcome:


  • Suspending two ACP and seeking explanations?…Singing Beethoven to the Buffaloes!
  • Victim’s condition worsens but vital parameters remain stable….A life term for her?
  • LG slams Delhi Police for security lapse…..Case of Pot calling Kettle black!
  • Police names Ramdev and VK in FIR for clashes at Jantar Mantar…. What a Blame Game!
  • Some dysfunctional Women’s Rights Bosses with verbal diarrhea speak up!…Routine!

Golden sentences from Home Minister Shinde who seems to constantly sit with his knees in his mouth   ……worth framing!


  •  “It’s very easy to ask the HM to go to India Gate and talk…tomorrow Maoists will come to demo with weapons”
  • ·“Earlier Bofors was a talking point people forgot about it. Now it is coal this too will be forgotten” –said on September 15th!

The Honorable and Stoic Silent PM finally SPOKE!!! …..that too prepared speech with definite opening body and conclusion!

It’s a shame for the PM who spent so much time to argue for FDI in retail chose to remain mum on gang rape! He is concerned for the young woman who was the victim of this heinous crime! He came in with a slew of measures to address violence against women but the innocuous question “Theek Hai” at the end of it makes me suspect the whole “script”

Ironically the Speaker, The UPA chairperson are women, have barely or sincerely addressed concerns. Of 906 police stations in Karnataka only 10 are women manned! One example of imbalance!

Branding of women and public humiliation almost like she has committed the crimes, do a clean disservice to the victims by aligning sometimes with the side of the perpetrators be they murderers or rapists. Even members of the judiciary make lewd remarks about rape and women. Even children are raped across the country…. Rapists’ rarely punished!

Women gets ogled, pawed, and even pinched on roads, during travel, work place subject to lewd talk.

What we need urgently and consistently is to undertake a process of thorough gender sensitization.

Every 22 minutes a girl raped but conviction is hardly 26 % …if people are tired of lethargy, do they deserve water canons… tear gas… and lathis? As the nation waits for Nirbhaya case to be resolved, the anger on the ground is very palpable.

I am drowned deaf with some questions ringing in my ears!

  • Is a woman entitled to the Right to safety?
  • Are we a democratic state or a police state?
  • Is the Police primarily occupied in providing VIP security
  •  Is this a loud shout fallen on deaf ears once again?
  • When will the Blame Game Stop and Punishing the guilty start?
  • Why are Women’s issues considered marginal and trivia
  • Is social activism and media propaganda or judicial backlash enough?

To add on is the great ‘Bhartiya’ repressed libido. Men seek out cheap pleasure and have little fear of law. The stigma is always attached to a woman being raped; we surely know the social value of a so called ‘Pavitr Naari’ aka ‘clean’ and ‘pure’ woman. The ‘stigma’ of a raped woman has been made so entrenched in our sick minds, that it overrules the fear of punishment of the rapist. Guess it largely explains the underreporting of the sexual crimes against women. The rapist most often roams free!

In the largely apathy ridden society of today, gruesome stories of rape and abuse would make people squirm. The question here is … are we able to give a sanitized atmosphere to our women who have every right to make the most of their sexuality, dress and speak the way they like?

Women Surely Have a Right to Safety. Anyone violating must be punished without delay or deliberations.

What we need urgently and consistently is to undertake a process of thorough gender sensitization.

Now people are demanding castration for repeated offenders?

Who is going to ensure this law? The Irony of it all——

Invariably a MAN -wielding two very powerful scrotal sacs!

Get Beaten if You Stand Up….Get Killed if You Speak Up!

Rape-Bitter Chocolate for the Cowards! Without NUTS!

  3. Even with the constant educating of family and friends, an entire knowledge of the impact a small treat
    may have if it’s not really a part of the plan could be a challenge for anyone not
    up close and personal with all the situation. Having the right
    diet and doing the proper exercises is needless to say essential.

    Obesity will be the upshot of busy style of living and bad food habits.

  4. Good writing skills are necessary for informational articles. It’s obvious that you have these skills, but you also have vast knowledge on this subject matter.
