India is diverse country, there is India, bharat, hindustan in every village, town, city, metro, and what have you. I have been involved in knowing the surface reaaction, reacftion within the four walls of the home, in a gathering, offices, chai shops. There are poeple with multiple mindsets, they are more than Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. I accept that the deeds men do in the dark shames darkness itself. On the once country i do feel that eve-teasing itself should draw extreme punishment, before it gathers courage and turns the person into a monster. Even co education does not seem to sensitise, mother in laws in many homes in this twenty first century behave the way they should not, mother is proud of er son in law cooking and taking care, whereas elsewhere he is called henpecked. As mother in law she does not want her sons to enter the kitchen. This in a way breeds a kind of thinking about girls and then women. Take the case of maid servants in many places the less said the better, it is silent rape everyday, they have no choice but to bear silently, the woman of the house has knowledge but she will not raise this, lest it disturb the balance in her family, and in the bargain let the maid go, even if the maid draws courage and reports, who will support her. If she does so she also gets tagged as the loose one. We talk of rapes in the cities. what about those in the village, towns a closed door society. For all this a decent beginning has to be done, which in due course may change the way we look at women. Then there is the issue of how women look at other women and treat them, the rich who the treat maids as dirt, the subjeewali and others in that range. At times it is the question who has power, rapes the other. At the grass root level things are pretty bad. Fine the incident at Delhi can atleast be a eye opener, will it be, your guess is as good as mine. But why not make a beginning. WE SHOULD WE MUST.
