India’s Daughter: A Voice

The World Past Me Everybody is aware of the December 16, 2012 Delhi gang rape, forever marked as the Black Day in Indian history.

A girl is far more responsible for rape than a boy.

It is what Mukesh Singh, one of the main accused said in the BBC Documentary, ‘India’s Daughter’. What is her crime Mukesh? That she was out alone in the city at night?

      In India, while growing up, our parents and practically everyone else keep teaching us how to conduct ourselves ‘DECENTLY’! We, girls, have still not understood their definition of the word DECENCY!
      Unfortunately, these same people never tell their sons not to rape girls. Afterall, the boys are their lanterns! They will carry forward the family! And, we, girls, are equivalent to playdolls!

      2. There is nothing wrong with that at all. How they interpret fashion is ultimately distorted. What worries me most is that they have been taught that this is they way women are to be treated. That’s why change must occur from the bottom of society up. Everyone must voice their opinion that this behavior will no longer be tolerated.
