She was 23. She dies with a pain in her soul. Fighting continously for her life since the last fortnight the gangrape victim who was brutally assaulted and thrown out of moving bus ,who suffered multiple organ failure other than the mental trauma and the physical ones, expired this morning.
She won’t rest in peace untill the conscience of each one of us is ripped apart. Crimes have happened ,sins too ,but never before was such an outcry seen on the streets of Delhi,the heart of India. The vociferation was loud ,unanimous and active emerging straight from the veins of the body, the chords of the heart. For every heinous offense had been silently dead in the grave ,this one aggravated as the victim faced and fought bravely with her life and society to bring to the light the deathly sinful act.
Who is to be blamed is a debatable topic! the society, the people, the upbringing,mental conditions, abused past, psychological cases, insecurity, over indulgence…whatever, anything doesn’t give the license to rape any girl ! No amount of excuse or situation justifies such an act!
Long before we realize that such circumstances and instances end up our system, our society and the trust for humans itself,its high time to voice the anger and the fury in every possible way to obtain and regain the free and secured life that we have the right for in our own country.
What shocks more is the politics of the Indian system that abstains every politician from expressing and thinking about such a grave situation and which in due course has killed their conscience. The persons we elect or elected,whoever represents the larger sections of our society in the centre or outside India are afraid, ashamed, hesitating or refraining from expressing their feelings? Or they have no anguish about what happened?
What a waste of our valuable votes and faith that we laid in their hands to run our government whether in power or in opposition? Do we need to guide them or tell the diplomats who handle the international affairs how and what to do to tackle such a situation?
Rather than taking diplomatic steps and stating hypocritical comments ,they need to show some sense of responsibility and leadership values due to which presumably we have accepted them as our leaders.
A kingdom is doomed to end ,when the king and his government are no longer able to safeguard his subjects from the atrocious crimes and when nothing is done to prevent or stop such attacks.
Before the girl ,whom we all proudly want to proclaim as India’s daughter becomes Kannagi of Madurai! who had cursed the once beautiful city to turn down to ashes due to wrong judgement which had cost her beloved’s life, its time to give her soul justice and the respect that she deserved.
Wake up ! the dead souls of India! Wake up the leaders ,
Where do you strangle and hide ?
In such a grievous inscribe?
Show us your presence ,
Reassure we aren’t wrong,
Guide the nation on a path,
where we wont be ashamed of what and who we are?
