My blog has been sitting idle for long and so I thought that this New Year, it’s the right time to revive it with some thoughts.
The most disturbing and scaring thought that has been nudging me lately is how girls, and women are at the mercy of few idiots and sick minds. What surprises me is how the rest of the public gets busy organizing candle protests and shouting slogans being surrounded by the crowds, but those same persons sit like blind dolls when someone is pawing a women on a bus, throwing expletives, or trying to molest a woman in broad daylight.
I even shudder to think when I read reports of how infant girls are raped and then left bleeding in some obscure corners or open field. Amidst all the hoopla surrounding what’s the best punishment for rapists and those inflicting such inhuman acts, my vote goes to public humiliation and flogging as death sentence would be hard to come by, especially with our impaired legal system, which snores and proceeds at a pace that would even shame a snail!!!!
Meanwhile, I think parents of girls should encourage their kids to learn self defence tactics. For those like me who are burdened by their love handles and bundles of fat, the best remedy is to get equipped with safety pins, screwdrivers, pepper sprays, and anything and everything that can inflict pain on an approaching person having a malicious intent, before stepping out on the roads.
But the million dollar question is - will such incidents stop? Only time will answer.
