Friday, 18 July 2014 Why was she raped???

The unfortunate incidents of rape in India are turning out to be as frequent as power cuts. Nearly every other day a soul is shredded to pieces. An innocent life is blistered,it's pride shattered, self respect crushed. The million dreams that she had and the zillion hopes that every one had with her are lost.
The eyes which twinkled, now had enough trauma for a couple of lifetimes.
She will get up,live again because they did not leave her dead. She secretly wished they had.
And thus she sits by herself,thinking why was she raped?

Why was she prejudiced, deprived of her happy little life and made into a national news broadcast.
Those people having a debate on her,if only they knew what had really happened to her. If only they were there in her place,tears and blood flowing as she screamed for help. But they were not there. They were in their bog homes on their soft beds. Then why are they talking about it? Speculating the numerous reasons that how it was her fault.

The first thing they had said was about her cloths. Her clothing must have been too provocative for the "young men" to resist. For there cud be no other reason for them to do such thing. It would have been her dress that would have "invited" evil onto her. The "young men" were swayed by her seductive look and could not control themselves. There was no doubt that it was not her fault.
Now the man who said this did not know that she was dressed same as his daughter would have,even better. Her dress was not at all "western", as his daughter's would have been because she knew it was not safe outside. Her mother told her this every time she went out. Others in the family had objected on her going out,but she was not going to party. She was working because she wanted to and the Law did not stop her,but it did stop that man's daughter from going to a rave party.
The only difference was she did not have a driver or a bodyguard on her.

 And thus they took advantage of it. For there was no visible consequences and all they wanted to have was just "fun". They wanted to have sex without her consent and this was their idea of fun. Sadly for them she disagreed. But how dare she! Now she will have to pay the price for defying them because they were men and she was just a girl,frail and helpless.
The flashback of what happened next gave her goosebumps. She had a fit and was hurried to the hospital.

Lying on her hospital bed,she turned on the TV to escape from the flashbacks. A news channel was holding another of those "debates". She was about to flip the channel when the news flash caught her eye. There had been another incident. Somewhere someplace someone had again lost "control".
A strange hatred engulfed her. She turned up the volume to listen. The victim was a school teacher who was pinned down by her own students. She felt bile rising in her throat. The debaters were doing their job. A lady dressed in a beautiful saree said that the teacher might have been giving dubious "signals" which made the boys "do it" or else how would a group of school boys would have thought of any of this. There was loud booing in the studio and the camera's focus was dragged away from her to a man who until now was boycotting the discussion. Now this person gave a political angle to all this calling it the work of opposition. Bullock head. The news further said that the boys allegedly made a video to black mail the teacher.
She got sick hearing all this and threw up in the bin beside her bed. But there was more. As it happened to be, the boys turned out to be underage so they were exempted from the regular punishment of committing a rape. They were able to commit such a heinous crime but as far as law was concerned,they were innocent little boys who could not bear the heavy punishment.
Unable to believe this non sense she turned of the TV,ate one of her pills and went for a sleep.

On her way out she saw a group huddled up closely. The wailings were heart drenching and she knew that some one close was lost.
A small girl was being admitted due to severe injuries to her private parts. She was 3. PERIOD.
Now the debaters wondered what had she done wrong?  She could not have dressed wrong, she could not have given any "signals", she was not late partying out nor she had a phone or ate chow mein!!!!
The only mistake she did was rest her faith in a monster whom she called "chacha". The same chacha who brought her toffees and gave them to her in return of sitting on her lap.  How could have she known what was coming. She did say something to her mother but was not she just 3! And thus the molestation continued. She thought this abuse was normal so she stopped worrying,complaining and then came the day she would not have forgotten had she lived. The day all notions of morality were flushed down the gutter and she was left dead with shards of glass between her legs. The monster escaped. But even he is caught and punished would it make a difference? Would that flower ever grow again?
The debaters were numb but she knew the answer. She knew what mistake all three of them had made and it had nothing to do with cloths,pubs or drinking. It was their gender,their being born a girl. The attackers had no fear of what would happen next, they did not care even if she called them "bhaiyya",all because she was a girl. Because she was not a human being to the world but a piece of flesh. They could do anything with it and she would feel nothing, do nothing. If somehow she was "safe" her parents would marry her of with a huge buying amount to the groom but nothing will change. The misconduct will continue. The torture will go on.
Nothing would change until she stops being a girl.
