Gang-Raped, Woman Travelled In Delhi Metro Holding Her Dead Baby. 43

I want to scream and I want to shout out loud; God, humans are your greatest creation but I am sorry to say that I have not seen such a pathetic living being on this earth ever. You created both man and woman as an equal entity, together they are the creator of new life but seeing what is happening around me, I want to question your thinking and creation.

I am a woman and being born in a nation where women have been treated as a deity should make me feel proud of myself but seeing the series of incidence which shows how some people are ripping apart the dignity of a woman does not only demeans women but have also divulged the diabolical thinking perpetuating in our male counterparts.

If you have been blindfolded all this while, then let me unfold the truth;  I was trying to overcome Nirbahaya but I guess, it was just the beginning. The horrific truth that left me traumatized was about a 19-year-old woman being raped and her 8 months old daughter stifled to death. The hideous crime which took place in Gurugram, where an eight months old baby was thrown just because her bawling was disturbing the sick intentions of the Rapists, simply shows how evil have we become.

The lust to calm down the growing hormonal temperature of a few people asked for the life of a baby and ended up by raping the mother of the baby. It would be wrong to say that I can imagine what she went through, the horror and terror and fear that would have surrounded that woman on the night of May 29th, 2017 leaves my nerve cold and my eyes numb. I don’t have words to describe this hideous crime and the evil intention of people around us.

My question here is where are those so called ‘Human Rights’ activists today? Why there are no long debates on any news channel on this? Why are big politicians not invited on talk shows today? I remember a few days back, one of the reputed news channel held a two-day debate on new developments on Ms.Sunanda Tharoor murder case. What about this murder case where one 8-month-old infant and a woman’s dignity was brutally murdered just for the 10seconds pleasure of few men?

Disgusting is the word! I feel really ashamed to be a part of society where when a celebrity commits suicide is a national news and talked about for days but the trauma and the pain of a common woman deserve just a headline in the newspaper.

In the country where when an army man punishes a stone pelter without harming him in any ways is confronted by Human rights activists and an apology is expected by the country’s Army but for girls like Nirbhaya,…..,…..,…. we have to come on roads in lakhs to prove that even these girls were humans and deserve justice.

Today, despite being an independent and well-educated woman, I am afraid to step out to my house, I am afraid to ask for help from a stranger, the situation has become so bad that I am even afraid to walk out with my daughter who is newly born.  Many people would say that I am overreacting and such incidences happen once in a while, but what they fail to understand is that one such incidence is setting the foundation stone of a society where life for a female is either within the house or they become a hunting game for such sick people.

The tragedy with us is that we don’t treat women as equal and the problem is not with this generation, a series of incidence have been responsible for the same. I am a woman and I want to move around freely without worrying about, if someone is stalking me or whether I should even step out of my house or not. The condition for some girls has become so worse that they have stopped even thinking freely.

Why have we created the world where, the male can speak for his right but when it comes to women, they are either asked to be silent or their voices are curbed forever.  Its high time that people should understand that a woman is a human being first and not a prey to satiate men’s ill desire in whatever manner they want. And if the men out there do not understand this, the laws should be so stringent that a man should think thousand times before even giving an ill look to a woman, leave apart touching her.

I can just pray that the girl gets over the trauma soon and all the females in this country soon get free from the fear of being stalked, raped, killed, ripped apart. And I want to convey a strong message to men of this country that…. Be a man of dignity and values…don’t be a monster, tearing me down and hogging on me as if I was created to quench your ill-desire is an act of evil. God has given you life as a human….Be Human!

Let there be no other Pradyuman! 1926

 

Dear All,

This is an open letter to whomsoever it may concern, I am really shaken by the death of Pradyuman and series of events that have surfaced in different schools victimising little kids.

I am a mother of a 2-year-old child and the day I saw the news about the cold-blooded murder of a 7-year-old Pradyumn, I was left dumbstruck. Well, I never doubted the fact that human is the most dangerous animal but the way this little boy was murdered is…..no word can describe it.

I don’t know if there was something wrong with schools or there is something seriously wrong with the school management. But, another point that I would like to raise here is about the playschools.

I think most of the parents nowadays send their kids to playschool. It’s a place where children learn the basics of life and get geared up to enter the real world of schooling. But, have you noticed that there are so many playschools have mushroomed in every nook and corner of the city.

I just want to know how many such schools are affiliated or is there any system in place which assures that these playschools follow a set pattern. It might not concern a few but to many of us, it is a point of worry. Knowing the fact that our little ones are very small, they can barely speak clearly, they are too naïve to understand the ill-intentions and malicious thoughts; under such circumstances, there is a dire need to have a system in place which sets the certain protocol for opening playschools.

Even if there are parameters that need to be met to open playschool, it’s important to check for those schools which are running in a room or in a small area where no amenities are present.

What can we do as parents?

I agree to the fact that schools are the second home for a child but, taking into account the recent precedence, it is the time that we as parents take up the charge and become proactive.

If you are planning to enroll your child or have already enrolled then you must have these pointers on your radar-

  • You must know about the playschool and its staff.
  • Try to stay personally connected with the staff members and other staff of the school
  • Enquire about the verification procedure of the staff members
  • The schools should have enquired complete details about each member of the staff, starting from the teachers to the watchman
  • Enquire about the first aid facility available in the school
  • Make sure that you drop your child to his/her class
  • You should do a surprise check in the school
  • Don’t forget to meet your ward’s teacher regularly
  • And the most important thing, you should observe the behavior of your child. It’s very important that you must check if your child is happy to go to school and at the same time he/she is happy while coming back.

These are a few suggestions from my end, you can obviously leave your opinions and feedback on the same. Let’s promise to ensure the safety of our children and their childhood.

 

 

 

Why is ‘Adoption’ unapproved by society for an unmarried single parent? 1383

I was preparing for sleep last night when my friend Asmi called me up. She was sounding flustered. More than flustered, there was a rage in her voice. It happens rarely that Asmi cries. She is 30, strong, self-reliant and a career-oriented woman. She didn’t marry because she chose not to marry. There is no catastrophic heartbreak story behind. Her focus has always been on her career. She is practical and staunched.

I understood her heart is really heavy else there has never been any place for tears in her eyes.

I quizzed her the reason.

“I am not crying because am sad, I am crying because am helpless and exasperated.” Asmi retorted.

I didn’t interrupt and allowed her to put her heart out.

“Preeti, I called my mother last night and had an argument with her.” she continued.

“I told my mother that I want to adopt a baby. Before I could say anything further she started yelling at me. She scolded me saying, Asmi already because of your decision of not getting married we are in pain. Why are you adding troubles to our lives? If you really want to adopt a baby just forget us. We have to live in this society and will have to answer people around. You have always done whatever you want but this time you are crossing your limits.

If not today, maybe tomorrow you will get married. Who will marry a girl with one child? Such things appear good in movies only. You better start focusing on marriage now. Preeti, My mother wasn’t even ready to listen to my thoughts”. Asmi started sobbing.

I really had no words to console her. Her thoughts were irreproachable and valiant.

But we cannot even disregard the fact that we live in a hypocrite society. When celebrities like Sushmita, Angelina, Sunny and more adopt a baby, we eulogize, lionize, praise their thoughts and we consider it as an act of kindness. We appreciate their humanity. We deduce that they gave a new life to someone. But when anyone from our own house even thinks of adoption we make them go through ignominy by coming up with the questions like is there any medical issue? Are you not straight? Why don’t you marry and then plan your own baby? Why are you trying to shame your parents? Why don’t you understand this baby won’t be your own blood? Are you kidding? Etc.

I’ve read somewhere that parenthood requires love and not DNA. I wish we really understand that. Your genes won’t define your family, our family is built with love care and respect. There are many people who do have a heart for adoption but fear comes in between. Fear of society.

I wish people understand that adopting a baby whether you are single or married isn’t a crime.

Adoption will not only give a baby a family but will also give us a special feeling. A feeling of being human. Probably the purpose we all are here for, giving life a life.
