Its a man's world, my dear friend, so goes the saying. So, its needless to say that it is man who needs to be brought around and told to honour women. And this cannot be achieved by Laws, no matter how stringent you make them! This can only and only be accomplished by such means as raising the level of peoples attitude towards women, by raising the level of our senses, of the amplitude of our feeling other's pain. These can only be achieved by education. Not the job oriented 'education' of schools but the Real education which a child should be getting at home, in schools, at work place ... through media, through our religious activities.
Abu Ben Adam saw an angel writing in a book, the names of all those who love God. Ben Adam told him, "write my name as one who loves his fellow being". Next day, the angel showed the list. Ben Adam's name was placed on top of the list by God Himself.

Following the spine-chilling and horrific gang-rape and brutalization of a 23-year-old in the national capital on Sunday, what I feel is that attitude to women must change; the legal process of dealing with the crime must speed up; and men must be educated and sensitised about womens issues. Theres so much outrage this time, and outrage can change things. But the conviction of these rapists is clearly not enough, sexual violence runs deep in Delhi and unless we deal with the source, itll continue to pour forth...!

'Fear is the Key'. This is an old saying. Nowadays there is no fear of Law. Rapes continue to happen because culprits get away with it. The solution is to have special courts for 'crimes against women' and these courts must deliver justice within a minimum period of time. There should be no bail for such crimes. And the guilty must be hanged. No ifs and buts. No human rights for guilty people. It can be done here, if there is a will.

Very true is that actually none can respect any out of any obligation...... it should cm frm heart and mind to respect any....and people who doesnt value women....they could never do it whole heartedly........but the law can make every one behave in a proper sense........which is the least expectence out of strict laws.......as few things can never be achieved by the change in the evil minds but can be achieved by restricting it............!!

This will never happen women will never be taken on equal terms it is not even happening in the most devolped countries, and as such how can u expect this to happen in India where literacy peneteration is quite low as compared to west. if you are referring to recent happenings in delhi, please tell me do such things done happen in any advanced and so called highly devolped and educated country. as long as the society thinks of man as superior to woman such things will continue dont forget we live in so called purush pradhan society

Whether we treat men and women on equal term is a matter of different concern. Even if we don't treat them as equals does not mean innocent women are to be raped when they are caught not so much protected with male escorts or companions. Nature has not made men and women equal, So we should not run behind this never reachable destination. Ask any little kid, they also know mother and father are not equal. When they feel insecure, they look up at father but when the feel hungry or need this or that, they look up at their moms. We have made reservation for women to compensate for the practical inequality created by nature. If men or women had been equals,l there would be no romance, there would be no sweet literature, there would be no chivalry no epic and the world would look like a big go-down of stock-piled custom made goods. But, the differences of men and women made the human life look like a garden save for the goons and hooligans making it look like a hell.

Rapes are p ...more
