RIP, India's Daughter...
Do i as a girl feel safe in a place that i call my country? Can i step out of my house feeling secure? The answer is No, not only me i bet any female in my country has the same question in her mind right now. It was a shock to know that i am living in a country where there are men who are so brutal to cause such pain to a girl. My heart goes out to the 23 year old girl and her family who demised today after being brutally gang raped and assaulted on 16th December 2012. I was watching the news today where every official from our government said that they will take every step to speed up the justice process and punish the 6 men who were involved and amend laws for rape victims. Does India really need an indecent like to wake up, do we really have to sacrifice like this to bring change. What happened to her could have been any of us, it could be anyone in my family. Lets not stay silent, let not her life go to waste. Our government has to understand that they cant treat women like this, they have to take better security measures for us, and punish those men.
Its difficult to understand as to why a woman is ill treated like this in a country where we bow our heads down to goddess like Lakshmi, Durga, Kali etc. its painful to know that some men in this country just think of a woman as a sexual object.
The Delhi Police has been going on and on about increasing safety measures for woman in the City, what i don't understand is that how do they plan to do so when their own officers are sold in Rs. 100 and I'm sure we all have bought them at some point or the other, caught for speeding offer the cops 100 bucks and they are sold. These are the men who are employed to protect us? I'm not saying that all cops are such but we have a majority of them in the system.
I am not posting this to blame anyone, I'm just sad and heart broken for what a girl who was one of us had to go through, she was brave and fought for her life after all that she went through for no fault of her's. she was a fighter and hence the name "BRAVEHEART".
REST IN PEACE, INDIA'S DAUGHTER...
