What is wrong with us Indian men? Why do we get in the news every day for raping?
Is it because Indian men have become more desperate or is it that it has always been this way and just that the news is coming out in the open more often now-a-days than before?
I do see the hue and cry about ‘death penalty’ for rapists. Are we trying to fix the effect and forgetting to fix the source? (Now stop getting sentimental and say ‘if it happens to your daughter you will know’).
We all agree the system in India is broken. While it is broken, what is the point in trying to convince ourselves that death penalty is sufficient?
Scare tactics have always worked to allow people to find ways to work around it. Eg. Driving at speed limits. Especially in India, with sufficient corruption and muscle power around, scare tactics can only go to an extent.
How have the other democratic countries handled this issue? (Forget the ones where they cut parts of your body depending on which part committed the crime!)
Why cant we learn from it? Why cant we make an attempt to work actively for a solution.
Is it using technology, working closely with the police force, introducing a offender database that is shared all over the country? I dont know.
We dont have all the answers, but we the men of this country should take it as a personal challenge and work towards eradicating this evil collectively. This will be the best gift we give the women of this country.
