What do you say then ??

Really speaking you cannot compare those era to this one. Certainly Drapati was disrobed and Lord came to her help and the same way here also there are thousands of God came forward to help the helpless women. Justice will always be done. No body is watching the crime silently and for this one cannot blame any one. One or the other day the culprits will be brought to book and they will be defiantly will be punished. like that of those era where the person who were responsible of the act were punished the same thing will happen now also. until then we should have patience.

It all begins from people using other peoples names for fun like the way you are doing. Honesty and good policies should commence from within first before blaming parliament or any clan

So, that says it all. These guys are no different from our rulers of Satyug (or Dwapar or Treta, whatever). Then why blame these helpless poor people who are so occupied in the welfare of common citizens. "Theek Hai?"

Draupadi was not a common gal....she was one of the most beautiful princes of her time...and Duryodhan failed to fulfill the Swayambhar criteria and failed to marry her .... it was an insult to him as well....moreover his anger fueled more when Draupadi criticised him with the words....ANDHA KA PUTRA ANDHA HOTA HAI...then he decided to teach her a lesson...and that Chousar ka khel and Sakuni's complex plan was all the part of Duryodhan's negative ambition to dethrone the pandavas and assault draupadi...and that happened in KURUSABHA ...where Kshatriyas were according high priorities to their commitment instead of instant justice....for which Pandavas & other KURU seniors kept mum....However no public assault of gals or ladies was not tolerated by one and all....

But things occurred in Delhi highway in the running bus can not be compared to the facts depicted in MAHABHARAT.....although Indraprastha is the modern Delhi but Hastinapura was the ancient PATALIPUTRA or modern PATNA ....So ...more
