This blog’s author has always made an attempt to break down the chaos around him into simple, understandable, undeniable logic.
He has always tried to provide useful insights. No social evil, or mishap has escaped his attention.
He has tried to write for women in a country that is nauseatingly male dominant.
But, this time he stands without an answer.
How do I try to provide a logical explanation for what happened at Delhi?
How can I possibly answer why the hapless medicine student was subjected to gang-rape?
I do not know the answers. For the first time in my life, it feels so utterly futile to vent my anger. Because I know that no change will happen.
I cannot be optimistic anymore. What the F is the matter with this country? Why this mind boggling number of rapes every single year?
Is this a country of sex starved perverts?
I see only one single reason behind this. And I know many will raise their eyebrows at my reasoning.
The only reason behind the countless rapes every year is that sex is still a taboo in this country.
So much so that the perverts have to force themselves on girls.
So much so that they cannot have healthy, mutual sex with their girlfriends, or wives.
It’s a pathetic explanation. But I do not have anything better to offer. I am sorry.
I have good reason to believe so. For this was not a crime of passion. It was a crime of vengeance. Not only did they rape the girl, but also deliberately hurt her in a manner that she now battles for her life on a hospital bed.
Perhaps this was the revenge against all of the women who had denied them sex.
Perhaps this nation needs to start having sex more often.
Perhaps the myth of ‘purity’ associated with virginity has to be busted.
Perhaps then, crime against women will decrease? Will it? Share your thoughts.
