This is the order of the day that some woman, some girl child some elderly woman has been abused sexually, harassed, molested etc. etc… This is what we see every day in the social media, newspaper and TV channels. Quite disgusting and frustrating when you go into the details of their plight and sufferings. You can’t just think and shred off.
Very very pathetic. In-spite of the punishments set aside the crime against all sorts of women are rising on a daily basis and how do we stop this menace on women who are considered as sacred souls. We all know recently a Doctor in Telengana Region was sexually abused by a group of persons near a toll gate when she sought help for the punctured Tyre of her scooter. She was ultimately raped and killed brutally. How furious and fanatic towards womenfolk. The attitude of the offenders is gruesome and venomous. Can we tolerate such violence against woman and how long we are all going to hear and see and be the witness for all these offences? Of course this one incident was dealt by Police very judiciously and killed the offenders when they tried to snap the Police Pistols and runaway. All the four were encountered properly meeting their fate.
How many other accused are in the large and they are clearly aware about the outcome in the courts and punishments too as the cases are takes a long long time to meet the judgement. Poor victims our women folk wait and wait for the outcome and in the meanwhile they lose the tinge of womanhood and being moralized by the public as one that are unwanted by the society. Poor and they have been left in the lurch by all of us. In the sense as a society we are also guilty.
How do we go about?
The main victims are from the middle class family girls and woman. They have to necessarily use the public transport like bus, train and other common commutable vehicles. All these are vulnerable and allow the offenders to take chance against the less armed women and girl children. They have been abused and molested and taken for a ride and an opportunity arises they are raped either individually or with a group of persons joining together or abusing the single woman. These offenders main aim is that they clearly know all these women are meant for their sexual appetite and they have to definitely be dealt in that manner only. Every mother in the middle class family is waiting in their homes like covering a furnace in the stomach when they sent their girl child to school or college or for work and await their return in the evening with lots of hope and expectations. Most of the mothers do turmoil in every house and all mothers are running their fate against all currents.
What do we do?
Women and girl children have to be treated and enabled proper devices to protect them from such harbingers when they travel in public transports for commuting either to the school or college or to the work place. They need to carry a spray known as Pepper spray and make use of the same when an opportunity comes. They have to be careful when they meet strangers in the bus or other transport and do not engage in any sort of conversations, avoid even good dialogues that occur during the travel. Just forbidding and avoiding menfolk will itself save them to an extent. When someone starts behaving indifferently alert the crowd and make some big noise to enable the attention of the co travelers and bring the culprit to come to stake.
I am really happy about the Tamilnadu governments support through Tamilnadu Police department. They have introduced a new App Called KAVALAN SOS which can be connected to all mobiles quite easily. The users can immediately activate the application in case of any emergency and the same would be connected to the nearest police stations and immediate alert would be given. This will be followed by their assistance to the spot through GPS features and the victims can be caught immediately. In case of not able to access the application for want of help there is system of just shaking the mobile which would take the action on radiated x-rays and help can be sought. This would go a long way in protecting our women and children.
More than this our men folks should be taught from the childhood what is the value of a girl child and her democratic rights to be prevailed and her growth has to be protected by every men human being. Humanity has to the inculcated and cultivated from school level, college level and in the workplaces.
To bring down such crimes against all women, girl children are a million dollar question.
All of us have to unite and find out a way and teach the community at large and thinking about the causative factors that leads to such crimes.
