Rape In Delhi



We all get angry when things don't happen as it should be and than take out our frustrations on those who are responsible for that same as angry birds do with pigs in famous game series. We throw ourselves here and there, while in games it clear the stage but in real life it creates hurdle in our further movement and many times the main reason behind our anger go unnoticed.

Here I am talking about the rape incidents happened and happening in capital of India Delhi and futile demonstrations that follows. While people in anger protesting for death penalty for rape accused some political parties jump in them for political gains and thus turn the issue to some another level and then they blame each other, ask for resignations and so on. In this real issue get lost. Rape is not a Delhi problem but a problem for India,incidents happening in other parts of country are also heinous and painful but they don't get sympathy of these political parties because media coverage is low there.

The solution is still not available,factors responsible for rape are ignored,society responsibility for incidents is zero,police training for such sensitive situations is not provided and some of us are indifferent to the conditions. In patriarchal societies women are soft targets,they are not treated as equal to men and lots of burden and responsibilities are attached to them only,unless women are treated as human beings they will remain target to such crimes. Javed Akhtar's statement in Rajya Sabha is right in saying that there are many forms of women other than a mother which should also get equal respect as given to a mother in our culture,tradition and country.

The lesson of gender equality should be taught in schools. A death penalty will only kill criminal but not his crime which will remain alive in society even after his death. A person committing rape must be aware  what shameful act he has done. There should be a social boycott of such peoples and they must face public insult. We should be aware and alert about people around us and there intentions. Police verification of tenants is must,community gathering should be there to know our neighbours and there should be talks in families about such issues.

Lack Of Humans

Lack Of Humans



This Sunday a man in Jaipur learnt so many things in less than an hour after he with his family met with an accident in Jaipur road tunnel. First thing he learned was that it's our duty to follow traffic rules and not of traffic police to make us follow them. Two wheelers are not permitted inside that tunnel road where accident took place,moreover no one was wearing any helmet,this resulted in death of his wife and an infant baby when a speeding truck hit them inside the tunnel. But traffic police let him go inside the tunnel without helmet and also speeding truck was not stopped.

Actually accident was not the main reason for these deaths,the victims remain unattended for about forty minutes even when so many vehicles were passing by the site looking at the incident as mere spectators,the footage of incident on news channals make me recall the lines of a song from hindi classic Pyasa(1957) "Jinhe naaz hai hind par wo kahan hain",which means "where are those who are proud of India". How cruel is to see someone loosing her life?How inhuman is to let an infant die? Kanhaiya Lal Raigar was the name of that man whose wife and child was died. He was caught on camera crying for help along with his four year old son after the tragedy but sadly no one come forward.His cries were ignored by the motorist and they passed by without stopping. Someone came after 40 minutes and helped him in calling police and relatives ,police took the victims to the hospital but it was too late.

Is this the same behavior we wants other to do when we are in that position? Even animals don't leave some one wounded,they surrounded it lick its wounds and make all efforts they can do for its recovery.But this shows that we are worse than animals. People in India die everyday of hunger,lack of medical facilities,property disputes,etc. Don't let people die due to lack of humans and humanity.

Dreams Shattered



An unauthorized building was collapsed in Shil-Phata area of Thane Mumbai killing 74 people,culprits were arrested and it was found that municipal corporation officials were also involved with builders in completing this seven storey building. Unauthorized buildings were made,they got collapsed,inquiry commissions set up,culprits get arrested , sometimes sentenced to few years of jail and get released to do this again thus this vicious circle goes on.

Everybody hopes for a home which one can call his own, builders take advantage of this situation,they provide cheap houses low in quality standards and even get clearance (obviously bu greasing palms of related government officials)  thus such incidents happen. Governments are unable to give shelter to each because they themselves wants these builders to flourish as they give huge sum of money in bribes. As far as government housing schemes are concerned which are based on token system usually go to someone related to the official or may be to the officials themselves.

Today we are 66 but still we have people suffering from hunger,having no roofs on there heads and die due to lack of proper medical facilities.Who is responsible? always remains a question. May be we all are responsible in encouraging bribes. We offer bribes to ditch long queues or to make our work done before others,sometimes to get some benefit from that officer and sometimes out of habit. The system will change only when we change ourselves.

Indian Premier League ( IPL)

Indian Premier League ( IPL)


IPL is back with its sixth season,more action more glamour more money and more entertainment. A tournament for shorter form of cricket i.e T-20 is very famous throughout Indian subcontinent and most parts of the world. It brings world together on one stage just for cricket and spirit of the game. New talents from India which struggle throughout there life for name and fame gets it here instantly if they have skills in them,money they get is much higher as compare to Ranji Trophy and other such local tournaments in the country. This also promotes the concept of One World, it washes away regionalism as a player from one region plays for a team of other region or state and cheered by the people for his cricketing skills. With IPL cricket has reached new heights,those who don't like to watch it before now eagerly waits for it. We have got new stars like Yousuf Pathan,Shikhar Dhawan,Ravindra Jadeja,etc from this. It has also helped in removing rivalry of Harbhajan Singh and Andrew Symonds as they both played for the same team.

But as I also look at the other side of the things,it has reduced players as mere commodities to be sold and bid for money,I must mention that there are reports of match fixings, as so much money is involved in it there are possibilities of more such incidents,also where there is money there is politics Kochi team was discontinued after brief introduction due to political involvement in this team,after much parties are reported with incidents of eve teasing and molestation,drunken players and team owners also came under scrutiny for there behaviour and Shah Rukh Khan's ban from Wankhede Stadium is an example of this.There are tax issues with teams and game is played for not winning or loosing but for profit and loss,the loss has made owners of Team Hyderabad to leave it for some other company.

 Moreover I would like to say that in spite of pros and cons of IPL it is an family event, a carnival like situation where for two and a half months people really get glued to it and often get relief from there boring day to day life and useless serials on TV and remember this year SIRF DEKHNKA NAHI, get up and  Jhampak Jhapak Jhampak
