Rape News Every Day-How It Affects Every Indian Woman?

Hello Everyone,

Today is a special day for people of Delhi! Election results are out and all TV channels are trying their best to get the most of the TRP’s! Yesterday’s news will soon become an old story!

Yes I am talking about one of the most horrifying rape cases – Rohtak’s rape case in which a Nepali woman was brutally raped and killed.

Her rapists murdered her and disposed her body in an area where animals feasted on her.  Her body was half eaten and some organs was missing from her body. Perhaps animals also thought when humans don’t spare each other, why should we not have party 🙁

The woman had several injuries in her private parts. Condoms and sticks were found in her vagina. A 16 cm long stick was found in her vagina which perhaps was longer and broke inside her. Two stones were found from her anus. This is exactly the replica of Nirbhaya case that still sends us shivers in our spine. I was not only shocked and deeply hurt, I lost my sleep for a night. When I saw the news about this case, I threw up!

We, the common Indian people are so used to reading and hearing news of rape cases everyday that we have started taking casually. The sad irony is that women also take it causally. Rapes happening everyday is a brutal reality and we all have accepted it, including me. Unless a case like Rohtak case emerges and shakes us up, we see the news and we forget it!

We, the entire WiseShe group have always worked on women empowerment. Our entire team is women centric and we strongly believe that women are not equal to men but way more superior. And we are superior, who gives the right to any man to rape us anytime wherever whenever he wants?

I have not been able to concentrate on work past 2 days, I want to know reactions of all women out here on this case. I also want to know what would YOU do to change this so called trend? Because if we also just talk and forget, who is going to save us? Honestly, no one would come to rescue at “that” crucial time, God forbids if it happens to anyone of us.

Let us stop expecting help from people. I am not saying we should not protest and demand safety from Government and all “strong” men out there. We must protest but not just protest. We now need to take responsibility to save ourselves and entire women community. We must make our self that strong to at least can fight one attacker if not a gang.

Let us become so aware and cautious all the time that no man thinks about touching us. Let us not forgive even the tiniest unwanted touch of a man and teach him a lesson of his life. You must have watched woman humiliating an old man trying to touch her inappropriately in a flight. If we set these kind of examples, people will think a hundred times before trying to act indecently.

We at IWB will do our bit to help women become a bit stronger. We hope to build a little bit of courage in every woman out there to fight against rapes and to escape such happening. In the coming days, we sadly are going to start the “Avoid Rape Series”. We will discuss self defense strategies, various safety apps, precautions in this series. In short, we will discuss anything under the sun to reach every women and do our bit to save our own selves.

Let me know your thoughts!

Let us fight against the hideous crime!

  1. I feel sad and scared about such things but i simply cant think of anything that i can do except trying to keep myself safe 🙁 Good to hear abt the upcoming series which will definitely help girls.

  2. I know it’s upsetting and sadly enough all these atrocities are being committed since ages…. My parents did their bit by making me strong enough to fight for myself….. I have done my bit by making my son a sensitive man who respects women and ofcourse my daughter strong enough to fight for herself. We need to start from our homes by stopping our sons if they ill-treat women. Teach them about equality…. And please teach your daughters the difference between good touch and the bad touch. Tarun I am so glad that IWB is taking the mentioned step ahead. Lets take the talk ahead seriously.

  3. Well what can i say that is one of the main reason I’am scared to live in India, but that is not the reason, we all need to do something about and waht we can do is train ourself with some self defense techniques, incuclate good values in our brothers ,friends and kids. But our parents need to change thier ming set as well wearing short clothes doesnt mean we provoke men , the fault lies in the eyes of pevert men who treat women as mere sense of object. I believe any political leader or even celebs like Amitabh, Shahrukh should do something about this matter only then they will be real heroes. As they have the power of fame to influence the mass which can help eradicate such crimes.

  4. I have become sensitive to such news so much so that the entire time my daughter is in school I m scared about her safety.I have stopped doing so many things because I know I m not safe except in my home.I know it’s being a coward but do I hv any choice.govt, police they won’t do anything.people even if willing to help won’t coz they ‘re also scared about their safety…
    Self defence is a big step towards women safety but how does a three year old do self defence…
    India has indeed become a pathetic place for women.I really don’t blame who indulge in female foeticide..wen u can’t protect a girl why Give her birth…
    And this coming from a mother of a daughter..

    • Shilpa as a mother I can suggest is to teach your girl to say NO from the very beginning…
      Teach her the difference between Good Touch and Bad Touch but above all….
      Be the best friend of hers and make it a habit to ask her each and every detail of her moments spent in school or with friends.
      Develop that confidence in your kids (boy and girl alike) that they can share anything with the parents and if they tell each and everything to the parents then there will be a solution to all their problems that will keep them safe….
      But yes your last comment did sadden as well as disappoint me a bit…. “I really don’t blame who indulge in female foeticide..wen u can’t protect a girl why Give her birth…
      And this coming from a mother of a daughter..”
      Well, our old parents staying alone too are attacked so many times but does that mean we start killing oldies as they are not safe???

    • Shilpa,
      I agree that a 3 year old is not safe. Let me tell you that kids whether girl or boy are harassed alike. Infact, some of the numbers show that number of boy harassment is more than girl harassment in childhood. so your thinking is not right!
      You could think of having no child, perhaps it would make a bit of sense. Somehow I feel why should someone not enjoy parenthood just thinking what would happen if? Instead use your energy in making your child a strong and a good human being.

  5. Rape is the most common news nowadays you read on newspapers.
    I think I should share a small experience of mine. Well no I was not raped. Last to last year I was in a metro, going for my tuition. It was jam packed and yes a man around 40 years old decided to feel me up. His light touch irritated me upto such an extent that I couldn’t help but shout and threw few nasty words at him. People around me were simply watching the show but two aunties helped me and literally pushed him out of the train as soon as the next station arrived. Girls don’t stay quiet. Speak up! Scream as soon as someone tries to make you feel uncomfortable. Protest!!
    P.s if it weren’t that much crowded I would have slapped him!!

    • Kudos Monomita… yes right we all need to speak out…that reminds me when as a teen I visited Delhi and in a crowded DTC bus realised a hand crawling up…. despite of being a small town naive I knew how to handle that ….. I just quietly stepped on the toes of that person with my pointed pencil heels and twisted my heel with full force suddenly the hand was gone along with the man quickly moving ahead of me ….. obviously in pain. Point is that we have to do anything and everything to keep ourselves safe.
