The rape epidemic in India: It’s causes and cures (Hang the rapists).

It is an undeniable fact that Rape is an epidemic in India now. No day is passed without the grim news of horrendous crime like rape and murder. Rape has become so common and widespread that no women feel safe in India even in their own homes. Women are not safe anywhere from her workplace to the bedroom. We seem to get immunized by the news of rapes as every day, every minute a woman is molested or raped in India.

 

India is an ancient civilization where women were given the place of deities and worshipped. But in due course of time, the different factors like globalization and the internet has completely changed our mindset. We see and feel everything in the terms of material terms and human value and morality is lost somewhere. Children are raped and even the oldest grandmother had to pay the price for living in a country like India. It is not a small, scattered incident but an evil crime that is going on every minute, every day.

 

The following steps are to take if we want this crime to end:

Hang the rapist: First and foremost to immediately to bring down the rapes, the Supreme Court of India should pass a law to hang the rapists irrespective of their status and power. It has already made a law to hang the rapists of the children. But it is the need of the hour to make a law to hang all the rapists whether they rape an

 

Provide adequate sex education: Proper sex education is very essential in order to curb out this problem because without it the youth can divert from their right path in life and they easily became the prey of others. In our school and colleges, an adequate amount of sex education is not still given and the parents are either ignorant themselves or they are ashamed. Sex has become taboo in our society and talking about it is prohibited everywhere from home to school. So, they have to acquire the wrong concept about sex and hence develop the wrong conception about it.

 

Legalize prostitution in whole India: It may be sound ridiculous and immoral but there is no other way. The government should regulate the brothels like many western countries through which they will be able to earn revenue and the sex starving nation will calm down. Sex is a natural thing and we have to act like a matured human being. Paid sex is not a bad alternative than raping and murdering innocent people. But the government have to take a strong stance against any illegal and forced prostitution.

Supreme Court of India questions second chance for those left out of NRC Assam: A second chance is must be given to prove their citizenship.

The Supreme Court asked the Union Government whether it is giving a second chance to those 40 lakh people who were excluded from the National Register of Citizens (NRC) in Assam by allowing them to produce fresh documents to prove their citizenship. The apex court referred to the Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) proposed by the Government, which allows a claimant for Indian Citizenship to ‘change his legacy’ by submitting additional document at the ‘claim and objections’ stage.

 

The Court has asked the government why it wants to tinker with the family tree and re-doing the verification process? But the court is also agreed that it is dealing with “human problems of a huge magnitude”.

The Supreme Court can’t decide whether to allow the SOP by the government. But if we see it from the humanity point of view then everyone should get a second chance to prove their citizenship of India. Yes, it may sound anti-National and weird but it is the truth that many people has used legacies of others due to confusion and lack of understanding.

 

Prateek Hajela has said that reopening of family trees would risk the possibility of “trading of legacies or meeting of minds”. According to them giving a second chance would only result in the trading of legacies. He is right. The opening of the family tree will be an enormous task and there will be the misuse of this opportunity.

 

Therefore, it is the need of the hour to let the LRCR, CRCR, and DRCR take the decision whether a person is eligible for submitting new documents to change his legacy. Because in some cases the same family may use different legacies due to confusion. Everyone should not be allowed to submit new legacies especially those who have surrendered their legacy. It is a harsh reality that most of the people from those of 40 lakh will be able to prove their citizenship. Only a fraction will be declared as illegal foreigners and may be detained.

To the Indian parents: Listen to the heart of your child and give them proper sex education.

Indian parents are the most typical parents in the world. They think whatever they do is for the betterment of the child. In one sense they are not wrong at all. They think their children will be better off with the path they choose for them. They want to give the child education, career which is conventional and they think is fit for the child. But in this process, they ignore the desire of the child. For that purpose, the child has to choose a path in which they do not desire in their life. Therefore, the conflicts arise in the life of the child and they become the prey of lack of self-confident and depression. The child wanted to become a writer, a singer or an artist but the parents wanted the child to become a doctor or an engineer. Because they think that in the profession like doctor and engineer there are enough opportunities for earning income. They are not aware that in this age of the internet anyone can earn a handsome amount of money. The only hindrance in the path of an individual is learning and doing.

 

Listen, dear Indian stereotypical parents carefully. The world is changing and so the opportunities. Anyone can be successful in any field they want. Let your child listen to their hearts about what they want to become in their life. They should be given full opportunity to choose their own path and the parents have the responsibility to realize the true interest, the dream of their child.  Because it is only when a person realizes his or her interest, passion in a thing then only they could be able to give their hundred percent in that thing. Nothing will be able to stop them in the path of the success. And overall they will be happy in their heart because of listening to their heart.

 

It is the responsibility of the parents to provide sex education in their homes to their children. The girl child is more vulnerable than the boy because of the lack of sexual education. Our government has not been able to bring a proper sexual education in the school and colleges. Therefore, the children learn about sex from their over matured peers, internet, and books which most of the time distract the child from the proper education and provide wrong information. Therefore, in the mind of the young child, a wrong answer to the question of sex is presented and they can’t understand about the normal sex. So, they contain a misconception about it and keep path in a wrong direction. The girl child can face more dangerous situations like rape, drugs addiction etc. The taboo about sex in the mind of the parents is yet to disappear from our society.

 

The parents don’t want to talk to the child about sex. When the family is watching television then if any unwanted scene appears then either the set is switched off or the channel is changed. What message does it give to the child? That sex is a bad thing, it is harmful and a thing of shame. Then the child will be more curious to know about it and therefore they become the prey of the evil. We can imagine this by the number of rapes happening in this country every day. This is a grave situation and very sorry state for the country. Therefore, it is the responsibility of every parent to do their parts and provide proper sex education to their children.
