I intend to provide an update to the current situation.
One would expect crime rates to go down in India, if not out of moral cleansing, then out of a general fear of public outcry and punishment.
But, I am so darn wrong to assume this. 4 more cases of rape and molestation have come to light, and in one of the cases, one of the victims has passed away. The youngest new victim is a twelve year old. And the oldest is in her forties.
It seems the rapists have taken it as a challenge. “DO WHAT YOU CAN! WE WILL RAPE ANYWAY!” – Is it this sense of desperation that works in the rapists now?
Or are they too confident about the lawlessness of the State?
My dear friends, I do not understand. I try. But I fail.
Do you see any rationale behind this? If yes, explain in your comments.
I’ve often written here on my blog that sometimes I feel that blogging is not enough. I need to do something more active, more tangible. But what can I do? Please suggest ideas.
I am about to launch my humble initiative about Damini. No I do not wish to create a ruckus. I do not want this to be a forgotten case. I don’t want this to fizzle out.
So I will take a moment to explain my initiative. When I didn’t have this blog, I was an angry individual but had no medium to vent to. With this singular idea, I create this new category on my blog “VOICES FOR DAMINI”. I’ll encourage people to submit write ups, tributes, rants, suggestions – ANYTHING ABOUT CRIME AGAINST WOMEN.
If you are a blogger and don’t want to submit your article on my blog then write it on your own blog, and please link back to this post. Please.
If you don’t blog but have to vent, send your articles to – firstname.lastname@example.org
I’ll publish it. No questions asked. If you write in Hindi, Bengali, Assamese, then send it in those languages only. I’ll translate it into English. You don’t have to write well. Don’t worry about grammar, sentence construction. I’ll edit them for you.
I WANT THE RAW, UN EDITED VOICE OF ANGST THAT RISES FROM YOUR HEART.
Can you give me that?
If you don’t want to write, but still want to help this initiative, then please do me a favour.
Share this on facebook, twitter, or every other social media conceivable.
Tell your writer friend.
Please help me.
I can’t promise you anything, but I can assure you that your views will be published on the internet.
And it will stay forever even after you die. Maybe one day your grandchildren will read your article and feel proud. Just maybe.
Thank you for hearing me out.
P.S. : send a little information about yourself along with the article. Not much. Name, age, place.
