Defiled and Humiliated!!!

      There should NOT be any Navratras  henceforth in our country! Or any Durga Puja celebrations for that matter! All the temples of female deities should shut down. We are not fit as a people to observe these occasions. Let us do away with double standards. Atleast we will be clear about our position as women in this society as also in the country.
      Stop all this nonsense about "Save The Girl Child", the" Ladli" projects! Why do you even want to save her from female foeticide if you are going to subject her to rape and other such heinous crimes when she grows up (and even when she hasn't grown up)! Why would The Government insist on educating her if she cannot realise her dreams of independence in every sense!
     We still live in an age where women are considered as descendents of Draupadi, an object more than anything else. Forget the men, even the women themselves will be the first ones to cast aspersions on the "character" of the victim and pass scathing snide remarks...
   If you think I am over reacting to minor social aberrations, just open the newspapers in the morning and you will have these news screaming at you. Don't worry these stories will die their natural death after serving their purpose of selling the paper. They will continue for a couple of days more if some powerful people are linked. Do we get to know if the culprits have been punished? Chances are less, since they have "managed" to wriggle free after probably a couple of months behind the bars.
   All is Well or not so well... Media will move onto new stories and we will continue with our cup of tea. We will analyse and debate over them and find numerous reasons for such incidents. Will there be any strict laws and more importantly enforcing of these laws? Oh! But a Bill will have to tabled in the Parliament and debates will be on. these take time, you know!...While all the juggernaut is on , the victims will limp into their haunted futures...


  1. Beginning of December, a program aired on ABC 20/20 about India’s deadly secret.
    It was about 40 million girls who have vanished. All aborted before they could take their first breath. Their crime was that they were girls.
    As you know the gender ratios is India are terribly skewed about 914 girls per 1,000 boys. In Punjab it is about 833 girls per1,000 boys.

    Unfortunately this happens amongst the privileged and the educated also. The only woman who has brought cases against her in-laws and husband is Dr Mitu Khurana.

    Please watch her story and sign her petition for justice. Please give those 40 million girls silenced forever, a voice. Please forward this to as many friends as possible.

    and here is the link to her website-

    After you sign the petition, there will be a request from the site for a donation. This donation is totally discretionary and does not in any way or form affect or benefit Dr Mitu Khurana.

    All she is asking for is your support (signing this petition) so that pressure can be put on the Indian authorities that the whole world is watching them in total disbelief as they make a young mother run around in vain for four years in search of justice
