    BEFORE I REPLY I WOULD LIKE TO BOW OUR HEADS IN SHAME AND PRAY FOR THE SOUL OF DEPARTED VICTIM.

    Mr. Khera you and I are discussing different issues of the same subject.I discussed the lawless and crossing Luxman Rekha while you are discussing the unfortunate rape and now death of the victim.
    Let us hope that she becomes the soul searching of us Indian men .Why do we look on the other side when a woman is being molested, grabbed and goosed in buses and trains. Why do not speak up when eve teasing is going on.Are we not responsible for such acts
    Sacrificing is necessity and she has given her life but breaking Law is not a sacrifice

    This can be changed to large extent if there is timely JUSTICE DELIVERY system.One should be fearful of punishment,but exactly opposite is happening here.Punitive action is need of hour.

    There can be no two opinions that the horrendous gangrape in Delhi and other crimes of sexual assault-- on women, children, foreign tourists and so on, elsewhere in the country call for a determined effort at preventing them. But, is the present discussion, concentrated on death for the guilty, fast track courts, tougher laws etc. an adequate response? Instead of retributive justice alone, should we not aim at closing the tap which feeds a mentality of only the lust, towards women. A mentality, which considers women as the object to be physically used, with no regard for a mutually respectful and healthy mental and sexual relationship.
    If India is to prevent such crimes, we need to take a much closer look at what causes them. The beginning has to be made in the schools, where the civic studies must include a portion each year, devoted to equality of genders and a respect for the opposite sex.
    Much additional training must go into moulding of all administrative and law enforcement personnel, to sensitise them into understanding a healthy, man woman relationship, based on equality and respect.
    May be this has already been done and most of us not aware of it, but extensive studies need to be undertaken to determine if repressed sexual desires cause such crimes. If yes, the social factors which cause such repression, need to be identified and measures for avoiding such repression need to be implemented. Is poverty and lack privacy the only reason of repression as a stray opinion expressed by a social activist? Then why have even wealthy individuals been found indulging in such acts of atrocities on women?
    I am a lay person but know for sure that ancient Indian Philosophy boasted of many women scholars in positions of eminence. The multitude of politicians, senior police officials as well as local bodies like Khap Panchayats, who want to restrict women on various counts, need to be aware of this. Social equality for women does not mean aping Western standards but means restoring ancient Indian wisdom. It will be ironical, if in the land of Khajuraho, a healthy, open man -woman relationship, shorn of hypocritic male dominence, is not accepted.
    Although politicians of all parties have been found wanting in their response, Mr Rahul Gandhi's comment that " Any hasty decision will have undesirable consequeces", is an admission of total lack of thinking by the rulers so far,on the issue. Or else a decision now would not be called hasty.

    These photos don't do justice to the nation. It shows how lawless we are and when the police tries to protect the Govt buildings., why riots. When the barriers has been placed as a Luxman Rekha why cross and try tom push the police???
    No one can deny that police might have used moe force but it was provoked.
    It is unfortunate that trouble makers from outside with view of looting took over and students were misled and all the efforts for justice for rape was diverted into this police brutality.
    Why can we the citizen not be Law abiding????

    Mr. Katyal, have some pity and empathy for the protesters who braved the chill and faced water cannon and batons. They left the cosy comfort of their homes to protest against the brutality of inhumans who perperated the heineous crime and wanted change. In a democracy, citizens have the right to protest and seek change. This cannot be achieved without some sacrifice. What right the authorities had to clamp sec 144 and order lathicharge. State is insensitive to the changing scenario and its mindset is still steeped in the british rulers. They try to quell dissenting voice by the use of excessive force. 'Ahinsa parmo dharam' is ok, state must know that it also has to work within laxman rekha,Indiscriminate use of powers and force will not be tolerated and anger amongst the citizens will lead to this kind of situation.
