position of women in India
January 18, 2013 8:10am CST
What is happening in India now-a-days??? Why a women is not secured? Here women is considered as god, but why such incidents are happening?? Why can't a women walk freely??? Recently we got to know about a girl from Delhi, who got gangraped by five men.. If the capital of India is not secure, then how can other cities be safe?? What is Government doing about it? Why still the accused are not given punishment? What is the current position of women in India????

This is not entirely Government's failure. It's a failure of every family. Have we ever taught our boys to treat girls rightly? All the way we have been taught "boys are superior", "girl has to give up her wishes / rights", etc. More precisely, we have been showing discrimination between both from their birth itself. (Advising girls to be safe is different, but have we ever advised boys to treat women respectfully?) Government can take action against known social evils, but it is every family's duty not to grow civilized perverts within their family. In every village, many harassment are happening, but only that happen in cities come to light through media. Unless awareness comes in the families, it is nearly impossible to stop such happenings.

very rightly said vc,problem is that education system is so much focused on just marks,growth,instead of building a character of any individual they are focusing on competition instead of individual growth,they are focusing on dividing,instead of togetherness,if we keep a subject of human management,which now a days was kept on mba syllabus from beginning of any child study,then this problem can be solved along with family culture as well

This is due to low mindedness of people.How much we try to spread awareness but it can't reach to it's result till we apply it to ourselve.This starts from small eve teasing to big gang rapes.Actually I think the attraction is always there but we have to limit the erge of that attraction so that it does not hearts others.The thing which we have to increase is not to sit silent when something is going bad ,how much we may suffers.We just have to be practical rather than ljust let them on papers.

Yes, you are rigth, but most of the times, the innocent is being their target. If the law will be strict, then we can solve this problem, if not limit it to some extent. The government should take strict action against them, and get them to the most severe punishment...

well it will be hilarious if we blame government entirely for such incidents. we need to grow up too. we need to change our mentality too. i see a lot of people in my daily life who start gossiping if they ever see a girl coming back to home latenight or even late evening. they start to make assumption about what she was doing till latenight outside and not to mention what kind of assumptions they make. once a great person (swami vivekananda) had said that only parliament cant change the situation of the entire country by establishing some rules, it is the people who have to change their mentality too, to bring some change to the country. there is always law, and there is always some loophole of laws, and misuse of laws too. i dont know if you know this or not but there is a strong law against domestic violence in india. but a lot of women have misused it and those who have really suffered from that have never filed or rarely have filed any case. so before pointing any finger towards government we need to ask ourselves first, "how civilized and law obeying we are really, inside".

Hi sanahaseeb, I assume that you are an Indian and certainly baffled by the recent disturbing news of the Delhi case. I think there is a confusion, it's the women form of god that is worshiped here in this country and not women. If you look at the history, it's the same country where we had rules like sati-pratha (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sati_(practice)) and if you talk about recent happenings, it's not the only one case, on paper numbers say there were 64 such cases reported in 17 days of January. I've lived in Delhi and it's not a place for a normal human being, 9 out of 10 people that you see on the road are bad guys. It's not only with Women they'll kill anyone for money. Not only Delhi, that NCR region has completely lost it moral values. It's sad but police or government can't do anything until unless people change their way of thinking and that's next to impossible.
