Gender equality from the grass-root level : Trisha Dey’s article

Dear all,

I am Trisha Dey,19 years, from Guwahati.
Being a woman in the first place I can very well imagine what she had to go through that night and afterwards for 13 long days.

I shudder every time I try to imagine the poor girl’s plight! But I am hopeful that WE can make this society a better place to live in.

We can’t just sit back ! We have to do something !
Leaving all the responsibility on the shoulders of a COWARD Government is a Very Easy way to stay out!

But for how long?

Don’t wait till your near and dear ones are attacked?
Enough is Enough!

If every single individual determines to bring in a change I am sure we WILL witness a change someday! And the process should begin from the root level itself!

Treating the sons of the family EQUAL to the daughters in every way!
The first time when he tries to lower down a girl through his words or actions, Get WARNED! This is the basic step!

In this country of over 1.2 billion people, change cannot be brought in very easily and rapidly but we have to keep on trying.

We can’t let our voices fizzle out in the black-hole of time!
You and I if determined, can build a better generation with a better society!

I want to change this society and will try to do so in every possible way I can! Because Iam a girl of this very country and I want SECURITY!

I’ve written a blogpost on this topic and you can link it if you want-

Damini’s death won’t go in vain!!

Trisha Dey is a fellow blogger, a friend, and she studied at the same school with me.

Still in the last teen year of her life (i don’t know for sure), she’s an exceptionally strong woman.

A no-holds barred blogger, she is the woman who in a way, epitomises the modern Indian girl/young woman.

      Yes Subh, I agree, but you cannot have social change without political support. Social change does not come about by voicing opinions and making speeches, it comes when politicians are forced to make changes to the laws that govern what the public at large can or cannot do. The current desire, as I read it, is to change the laws concerning rape; et. punishment that fits the crime. Some organization with political clout or, as I suggested, an organization of women (millions of them) who can field their own political candidates during elections and thus have a voice in parliament have the potential to create desired changes. In a country with a population of 1.2 billion people, it will require strong organizational skills, but a small start can be done via facebook-and spread it from there, using Indian women facebook users. Keep men out of it, if it is to be an effective women’s organization. So many things that affect women in India adversely can become politicised and thus changed under the laws of the country. Without changing them, nothing will happen.

  3. What part can I play specifically speaking? Please mail me some pointers. Thank you.
    NO MORE CYNICISM.
