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.

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.
