I am not going to write the details about the Delhi gang rape incident of December 2012 as most people around the world know by now through different media channels and internet. What amazes me is the reaction of public in India and statements made by several politicians and known figures about the rape incident. If someone has to be blamed for all this than its the Indian public who elect uneducated and criminal people to power. I am personal witness that women are not safe in Delhi, in schools, at work, while traveling around or even in the market while they go around for grocery shopping. Men will always try to pass vulgar comments at women passing by or atleast try to stare them in such manner that they are almost doing a kamasutra or as if they are seeing the woman through and through like an x-ray glasses. Its a common affair for women to get molested around in Delhi and if the lady raises an alarm even in a public place there will be no one who will come to her rescue.
Last March I had some family friends from Europe touring India and especially their initial stay was in Delhi. They were astonished by men stare at my European friends wife and his 9-year-old daughter. My friend’s wife and his 9 year old daughter had tough time in Delhi and men everywhere were trying to get as close as possible and touch them. However, my friend cut short his trip to Delhi and visited other safe places in India on my advice. Its not that women everywhere in India are treated the same way as Delhi.
Delhi has a large number of population which comes from the nearby states of Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh, Haryana, Chattisgarh and Bihar. I call these states “Darkness”, just like the author of the novel “The White Tiger”, Mr. Aravind Adiga calls such areas of India as darkness. The people in these states are living still somewhere in 2nd century B.C. and believe strongly in caste system and treating their women folk as animals. When people from these states arrive in Delhi, I mean to say when people from darkness come to Delhi they are unable to leave the darkness behind and adapt to a city life, but they will throng to live with the darkness and spread the evil in the city.
Unfortunately, most of the Indian politicians come from darkness, no culture, no education, no morals, no values and filled will evil ambitions.
Indian public, elections after elections go on voting for politicians from darkness and bear the consequences for the same.
I doubt that rapes will ever decrease in India or majority rapists will be punished in India. I doubt that even the Delhi gang rape accused will get some crooked lawyer to defend them in court and eventually twist the entire case and probably some accused might get free or minimum sentence or within a year or two will be released from the jail bribing the authorities when the media and Indian public will forget about the incident.
Politicians still issue senseless statements defending the rape case and have gone to an extent of even blaming the woman for the rape. The worst statement was by the so called God man named “Asaram”, if this is the spiritual leader of most people in India and if they still follow him, then you be the best judge what kind of people are following such idiotic spiritual leader.
There is no chance for real democracy in India unless the darkness is removed from the Indian people’s heart, mind & soul. Rapes, corruption & crime will continue in India and woman will always be unsafe and treated less than animals in India.
