The Place We Live


Just came back from my vacation with a smile in my head and a feeling that all is good in this world.I open my facebook and switch on my bbm to be to be sent crashing down into reality.I had been out of touch with the social media for the last week and opened it find it bursting with news of about the Delhi Gangrape Case.It is sickening and scary to find out that the country I know and love can treat their women with such disrespect.I am fiercely independent and strongly believe in the equality of women.I had deluded myself for the past few years thinking about the progress India was making in the upliftment of women's rights.Now,I am thinking twice about even travelling by public transport.Is this the way the women who give birth to the new generation are supposed to be treated?Are we supposed to look around every time we step out of the house?I don't even have words for how upset and angry I feel.It's been running around my mind ever since I came back.I sincerely hope we can do something about our society.


Some forums I have joined.I hope you do too.

  1. It isn't only disgusting & inhuman, but damn scary & frustrating too!! What's the world coming to? What's the human race coming to???Is there any solution to this issue....other than people realising within themselves that they have rise above everything else & be good human beings? Maybe it would have been much better if the Mayans turned out to be right......much much better that way...

  3. Its indeed very sad and frustrating.. so many voices... but again you find the same thing happening even before these voices die... Like Anupriya said there is no other solution than people realising or educating ourselves.. Mother's should stop keeping their son's on pedestals... and treat them like humans from the very beginning.. it's an irony that a woman is only another woman's destroyer.. the rapists mother would still be on his side defending him whereas she should be the one beheading him!
