WE ARE PARTNERS IN CRIME THAT HAPPEN TO WOMEN
When you look into newspapers this days, we see the news of rapes, Female foeticide,molestation, eve teasing, acid attacks on woman, domestic violence on women, women being beaten for dowry etc. All this have become quite common incidents that happen regularly on weekly basis. Now reading all this doesn't invoke any harsh feelings in our heart. We don't bother, we have accepted this harsh reality and have compromised with it. We think such things are bound to happen. They keep Happening and whats the big deal. This mentality is harming our society and it has harmed it to a great extent.
Every time we neglect such cruel incidents happening around us, we are actually supporting them. We are silently nodding our heads to this brutality. We are encouraging those mentally sick people who see and treat women as mere objects. What should be done is people should break their silence. It has started happening in recent times after the Bangalore molestation case that happened on New year eve. People are coming out in large numbers protesting against crimes done against women. That's a good sign.
People say tough laws should be made and criminals like rapists should be punished heavily. There should be strict Punishments and procedure of judiciary should be made faster and simple because " JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED". Making tough laws is simple but to amend it and make people follow it is where the real test comes.
What i personally feel is rather than making tough laws, we should make our women tough and strong to face their problems. They should be made able to fight all those who try to abuse them or tease them. They should know how to hit the balls of all those men who try to cross their limits. Rather than making her dependent on police and law forces, she should become self dependent. She should learn to defend herself. For this objectives to be fulfilled Martial arts and physical education should be made a part of our school curriculum. Our education system should free some space for self defense and martial arts.
Secondly i feel our mothers and elders should teach their sons to respect women. They should be taught that women are not just mere objects but human beings like you and me. Such moral values should be infused into them from a very young age.
Dowry system should be abolished because it is the biggest reason that contributes to Female foeticide. Girls are considered curse in a family just because to marry a daughter in a respected family. Huge sum of dowry has to be paid by her father. It creates financial problems in a family. People should understand " Girls are not a curse, but its a dowry system that is a curse on the society ".
Girls should be given freedom,
Freedom like we boys enjoy,
Freedom that they deserve,
Freedom to fulfill their own dreams,
Give them a chance to be selfish,
A chance to make their own life,
live their own life on their,
own terms and conditions....
Daughters bring blessings in a family....... so Lets make this world a better place for them. They are our responsibility. Together we can make this world a beautiful place to live in.
