On the dark and cold night of December 16, 2012, a 23-year-old woman was brutally assaulted and raped in a moving bus in south Delhi. Isn't it horrifying? Yes, I'm talking about Nirbhaya rape case. After 7 years she got justice. I'm talking about this case as Recently I was surfing Internet, I saw a news from UP that a women passenger was allegedly gang-raped inside a running bus for entire night on Friday (25-09-2020), and later was thrown out of the bus. This was the third incident in UP. Same Incident as Nirbhaya rape case. History is repeating itself and we are silent. History is repeating itself because we are allowing it and it will repeat itself until we are silent. I scrolled more and found that a 11th standard boy (16) raped a 10th standard girl(15) and his friends films the act and posted on social media. Like seriously 11th standard boy? where this youth is going? Is there we stand? The innocence being crumbled. these Sick minds are around us, our youth, our child are being influenced by these kind of people and only we have the power to stop this. We have to raise our voice against rape. We should teach our children how to stand against it. Rape is one of the most terrible crimes on earth and it happens every few minutes.
We should teach them self defense and should provide them sex education these things should be mandatory just like other subjects. There should be strict law against Rape. Its not just girls, even boys are not safe. We should raise our voice against such crimes. and most importantly we should teach men not to rape.
"Democracy, development and respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms are interdependent and manually reinforcing"
This Article examines the linkage between children's and women's rights in the context of the convention on the rights of child and the convention against the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women. Article 15(3) of the constitution states to make special laws for protection of women and children. The reason for such law is that women's physical structure and the performance of maternal functions place her at at disadvantage in the struggle for her physical well-being becomes an object of public interest and care in order to preserve the strength and vigor of the race. women and child development has been administering various special laws relating to women such as 'the protection of women for domestic violence act', the sexual harassment of women at workplace', the prohibition of child marriage act', 'the protection of children from sexual offences', If we will see there are so many cases about women/children trafficking's, forced prostitutions, forced child labor, child abuse and many more but if we will not speak about this, if we will not raise our voice for these issues these issues will only increase the our next generation have to bear this. Further the crime against children and women can not be controlled unless the mindset of people can not be controlled or changed. In general, undergoes a positive change. We have to work more to change the mindset of people to stop these crimes/ abuses against women and children. There is a very beautiful thought said by Swami Vivekananda that "Just a bird can not fly with one wing only a nation can not march forward if the women are left behind".
Deep under water...
And I don't know how to breath...
I can't move
My voice is frozen and tears are stuck,
And I struggle to swim out
And what scares me most is
The awareness that I'm drowning
And I can't swim anymore
I'm tired, Deep under water.
A very happy 74th Independence day to all. On the eve of 74th independence day I started my day on the internet searching for the true meaning of Independence and the meaning I found was 'Self-governance', 'Liberty', 'Self-sufficient', during all these surfing I just thought that are we really Independent? Are we independent from Communalism ? we are still struggling to stop communal violence in India. Though a large group of Indians strive for peace and harmony in the country, there are few groups, parties, organizations with sectarian interests working in India to divide and rule the country. Political parties for their benefits have created communal hatred among communities. Communalism has been injected in our education curriculum, history has been changed, and media which is controlled by political parties and corporates has played its own role on all this. Are we free from the thought of religious issues? An officially secular nation, India has a long tradition of religious tolerance, which is protected under its constitution. Although religious discrimination and intolerance of social dissent is hardly new to India, In our childhood we learnt that "Hindu, muslim, sikh, isaai apas m h bhai bhai" where this brotherhood gone now? I think parents should teach their children this again and should revise too. Are we free from Casteism? Even though we are marching ahead towards education and development, caste related violence is still occurring in so many nooks and corners of our country. We have seen many major incidence of violence against dalits/lower caste people such as Bathani Tola Massacare Bihar, Kilvemani Massacare and many more. Government just can’t root out this discrimination by assigning some quota in school, colleges and jobs; we need to work on the mindset of the people. Even after so many years of independence, we are still not able to free ourselves from the clutches of caste system. Are we free from Racism? Racism it is not only in India, but worldwide. Recently we heard about Geoge Floyd, and how can we forget about Northeasterners. Are we free from Patriarchy? Everywhere we write about girls "Save girls", " Beti bachao, Beti padhao" and many more but are we really following this? Do we have accepted LGBTQ+ yet? No we haven't we still call them with very inappropriate names or see them as they are not humans. Corruption is another major problem which has been haunting Indians and adversely affecting Indian economic system. Though we are independent country, we are not able to get freedom from corruption. We haven’t yet got freedom from these kinds of so called leaders.
It is not like that I only have negative points for our country. I'm proud of my country as we have developed lot after the Independence, but these are the some points which I wanted to highlight.
UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL. On the eve of this Independence Day let us keep all our differences aside and fight against these grappling issues and make our India independent from all sorts of slavery.
