I have always been a proud Indian coz I felt it is one country which has unity in diversity. But today I feel ashamed when a "girl" feels utterly unsafe and unprotected to even go out of their house in my country.
A nation-wide news of a 23yr paramedical student getting brutally gang-raped in a moving bus in the capital city of India, Delhi shook the nation and every heart of a girl in India. This is not what I wanted to see when I was a child. India is so full with talented individuals and great minds but still they run a dreadful society by infusing fear to a girl's or a woman's mind?
Please stop this right now. A girl has an equal right to breath, talk, walk and have every possible freedom as the other gender has.
Being a guy, I know that we are attracted to females more than they do. But personally I never have the feeling or even have the guts to think of "raping" someone. How can you do something like that to a human being? A guy must understand that raping a girl is not just raping her body it's raping her whole future and her dreams!
In my opinion I think most of the Indian guys still has no clue what rape really means and what can be it's outcome. A sense of rape can only be felt if you just think once that "the girl" could have been your own sister or mother! It is then you will understand the pain.
The victim (now dead) was a Hero of our nation and if we don't bring justice to her and all other women. THEN WE HAVE SHAMED OURSELVES!
I know you might be thinking to comment on this something like "we should hang the criminals", "they should be given chemical castration" or perhaps "they should be killed on sight". But will that really help to make a girl comfortable to go outside and live freely? I do not think so. It is then they will be comfortable only when guys learn about the morals of a woman and respect them.
