December 16th, the Delhi Gang Rape was supposed to be a turning point in judicial system in India. As the months passed I tried to catch news of the so called fast track trial for all defendants. One hung himself in March and now the youngest culprit gets away with only three years of punishement that too in a detention center for juvenilles. Jury was supposed to be objective, so why reduce the sentence of the youngest guy in the batch of scoundrels to harm an innocent girl and her companion? He was stated to be the harshest, so does he not by default deserve the severest punishment? Now the gang rape in Mumbai, why are such incidents getting more common? Do women have no rights to be safe and free as other gender? Just because she is a woman and someone thinks she needs to be harmed, can we let her be harmed? Everyone should imagine their mother, sister or daughter when they hear about just henious crimes and fight for justice. Teach your sons to respect women. If we want to be angels and love we can also become witches and harm if provoked. We give birth but we can also destroy lives as well. Women overall deserve equal consideration as men.
Before such events came to mind I used to think security was something more women would have in this time and century. Why are women still treated like things and not human beings? When a woman can go to space or climb the coporate ladder and become the CEO, then why can't she garner some more respect in overall society?
Kudos to the Mumbai victim for wanting to return to work, but I really do hope justice is served in a more timely manner.
This song from No One Killed Jessica expresses the grief of today's women that they cannot fearlessly live life to the fullest anymore.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dhwc9ClET-E
