The severity of the Gurugram rape case disturbed the whole nation and forced people to think of the world as an unsafe place to live in.
Why are people becoming so inhumane? Where is humanity gone, that we being humans can’t understand the pain and suffering of other humans. I wish if one could understand the pain of a mother who was not even gang raped but also lost her child after the horrific incident. But why would one bother to even consider this incident. We are now a day so used to these cases that they have become so common to us that these kind of happenings don’t even shock us, taking an action against this is a far more big deal.
The victim of this brutal Gurugram rape case has more horrible stories.
She has revealed the atrocities by rapists besides losing her 8 months old baby. When she left for her in-laws , she took a lift from a truck driver who molested her by taking the truck in a secluded place. She jumped from the truck and in hurry she decided to take help from 3 men who were drunk. They helped her and also beat up the driver. However they also started misbehaving with her. Initial reports say that she was raped in an auto but inn reality it was the mini Tata magic van. The 3 accused stopped the van inside the jungle and raped her. When they finished they boarded the van and threw the child form moving van. When the victim regained consciousness she boarded a metro and went to Delhi where she finally realized that her child was dead.
Police now have arrested all the 3 accused held for rape and killing the infant.
The incident not only shocked the nation but also revealed the frustration and evil deeds of the people in this country. After every rape case we hear people finding reasons to point out a women mistake only. They usually find faults with her clothes or her timings or her character etc. It’s not about any of these. It’s about the POWER which our society has authorized men with. They think it’s their birthright to use a woman and bring her to the status of just an object. They think that they have a right over a women’s sexuality and can use it as per their choices.
The thing which is needed to be changed is not a woman lifestyle but the mentality of people. They need to respect women and consider them as a human being not as a sex object.
