Today, after a violent battle with pain and trauma the Delhi gang rape victim finally lost her battle with life at the Singapore Hospital. It’s not just the death of a brutally tortured innocent girl but the death of democracy in India. India, where its politicians suggest girls not to expose themselves and excite men to rape them rather than facing the challenge to tighten the security for its people. India, where the price of life and emotions is no more than a pile of garbage lying on the road. India, where criminals run like leopard and law procedures follow behind with the speed less than that of a tortoise. I am saddened and ashamed to be a man today. People around me always say I am emotionally very weak and somehow I always try to prove them wrong but today I am helpless. I am just so helpless…!!! I couldn’t do a thing for her while she was struggling for her life. I failed to give her justice while she was alive.
My society is filled with monsters. By monsters I really mean the cruelest and the most insane creatures no mind can ever imagine. There is race among these monsters to commit the most barbarous crimes. I seriously wish we (humans) were asexual creatures. We don’t deserve to be a part of nature. Even a dumb animal never ever does such acts. If human race is garden then men are the gardeners and women are its blushing flowers but some of those gardeners pluck them and crush them badly. We (men) have lost it completely. I get restless when I imagine about the pain the girl must have felt. I am so sensitive that even if someone puts his heavy hand on me I can’t stand his load but when I think about the girl who carried the infinite load of mental trauma and the physical pain in her tiny little heart for last 13 days of her life, I really feel I don’t deserve to live. Today I have realized one thing. God doesn’t exist! No he does not! If he exists then he is unsentimental. He created humans with emotions but forget to save some for himself.
How can this ever get changed! India needs to fight another battle of independence but today we don’t have people like BHAGAT SINGH and MAHATMA GANDHI who can devote themselves of the nation. I am afraid for my country and its people. The current situation is such that not a single female in India is sure of coming home safely at any time of day. The irony is that they are not safe within their own house too! They are getting raped anywhere, anyplace, anytime and in any manner. This is the real truth of India. India, which was once called as the land of Gods and Goddesses, is now a land of rapists and we preach lust. Wherever we go, we just show lust. Be it for foreigners or for money and power. My feelings, my writing won’t help now. The fact is we have lost an innocent life and no one can get it back but I will work hard to make this society a better place to live. I don’t know when will I achieve it but yes, I will try my level best because I can’t live with it.
That’s me in the picture and I request everyone to shed at least one tear and pray for the innocent who is now lying in peace.
