Delhi’s agitation against rapes

I was born in the year when Emergency was lifted. So, I had not inhaled the air of Emergency. One week strong protest in high profile area of Delhi – India Gate, North and South Block and Raisina Hill was a spine chilling experience to millions of Delhites and also to every Indian who was touched by the brutality of Delhi Bus gang-rape.This one week reminded millions of Indians the taste of bitter Emergency days.
Today I want to post few pics which give a glimpse of India Gate’s agitation.

    Marvellous composition Dada! Tale told effectively….

  2. Thank you for posting this! awareness is what we can do to keep the people awakened!

  4. Hi Sushil, I’m an Indian resides in Malaysia. Love your post and aware of the situation going on in India. Hope more people visits your site.

  5. Thank you for sharing. The rape case is horrible — and fighting rape or men’s violence on women of any kind is drastically important.
    I am not from South Asia (though lived there for two years) so I have questions:

    (1) Rape cases abound in India — why the sudden fervor over this one.

    (2) Rioting crowds in India are easy to stir up. Doesn’t it disturb you that this tendency persists in India? Good cause or bad — the habit of rioting for government is a troublesome one which reveals something, eh? When I was in India, I constantly felt the danger of crowds there.

  6. 16th December, 2012 was not the first or last gang rape in India, the degree of violence, using an iron rod for torturing the victim girl and subsequent damage to the intestine was unprecedented and most horrendous act.
    1. Rapes do occur across the world, India is united this time because there is no fear of law and policing in petty criminals. The conviction rate for sexual crimes against women is very low in India i.e. just 7 %. General public has immense anger towards the apathy shown by government and impotency of courts and administration to strictly deal with such crimes.
    2. India has seen the days when crowds were gathered for religious favour or there were paid-up crowd for political rallies. Now this time, there is anger among younger generation, they are much educated and more aware about what is happening in other parts of the world, they demand clean and corruption free governance and more public participation in policy and law making. And everyone is agreeing that this is a genuine cause.
    Thanks for commenting and showing concern for an issue of woman’s rights. As the great poet Tagore said ‘Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high’, our half of population needs an environment of fear-free world.

  7. I like the fact that people get out on streets to protest for normality. All rapers should get the death penalty! They must be tortured, in order to give people real examples! Al rapers should be killed! No second chances for them!

  8. Death penalty for rape are only in Egypt, Iran, Kuwait, China, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Syria, Tajikistan and Pakistan. All European countries except Belarus have abolished capital punishments.
