Why am I Making Such Fuss over Crime Against Women, you ask?

Because I'm a woman and I'm terrified of going out after dark; because my mom calls me every 10 minutes if I'm not back home after 6 pm; because Delhi is my city too and I'm sick of living in fear, sick of constantly looking over my shoulder, sick of being whistled at, stared at, groped, molested and harassed every time I venture out. Because I'm a woman and not a bird who should be back in her nest after dark; Because I believe Delhi Police's ingenious idea of putting us women under house arrest after 8 pm in the name of our own safety isn't so ingenious after all, but instead reeks of laziness and apathy.

Because before being a woman, I'm a human.

And one hopes that in the times to come this nation will restore its sense of respect and adoration for women - for all times to come!

Thanks much for your visit and comments. Truly appreciate and wishing you the very best.

Straight from the heart post - Indeed agree with u, the laws need to get stringent than putting people under restraints.

A lot of truth there.
Read in today's news that the witness went to the court in a wheel chair to testify.
