Breaking deafening silence with outrage : Part I

It was 4:00 pm in the evening. A large number of media persons and other VIPs had gathered to grace the occasion. As the Chief Minister fluttered the green flag, the drivers lit camphor and ran the wheels of their flower bedecked vehicles over lemons to propitiate the deity.  The ministers were singing the paeans of their success and the milestones achieved by the Delhi Transport Corporation under their ‘golden’ reign, when Ms Jagriti Singh, a fellow media person played spoilsport as she narrated her ordeal.

 “I boarded a bus from Janakpuri”, she began in a soft tone, “since it was a non a/c bus, it was terribly crowded. When I asked a man to vacate the seat reserved for ladies, he refused and even abused sotto voce. Throughout my journey, a few male passengers tried to rub their shoulder against mine”, she continued as a drop of tear trickled down her face.
In the midst of my journey, my mobile phone was pick-pocketed when I tried to protect myself from being groped by those monsters.” She burst into tears, unable to hide her agony and helplessness at the moment.

Some people who otherwise take pride in their refinement in tastes and cultural immersions find themselves addicted to the display of unethical behaviour, hectoring and inhuman activities.

later, when I tried to contact the nearest PCR van”, she continued, “rather than offering me help, the errant cops continued to wrangle on and dismissed my complaint saying, “Madam ji, kismat acchi thi jo bach gaye. Zamaana kharab hai…ab bheed mei jara chedd diya, rape thodi kiya hai” and they chortled as they barked”, she started sobbing again.
Indeed these words came as a bolt from the blue and left the journalist drowned in the delirium of shock. 
O’ judgement, thou art fled to brutish beasts!
Thanks to the corrupt and inefficient system, of which we are an integral part, such cases never find light in the darkness. The media person could only be consoled by her fellow brethren and assured of a legal trial.

The ceremony concluded in the manner planned and little importance was assigned to the ordeal she had narrated to the authorities.

Every day, there are cases of eve-teasing, molestation, sexual assault, stalking and harassment. A number of researches have been carried out. Several committees have been set up.  But none of them have come up with a winning formula to curb this menace. Perhaps the sociological difference between a male and a female child is the primary reason for the miserable plight of the fair sex who continues to be victimised at the hands of the demons strolling down the streets of the nation. Every day, in one part of the nation or the other, innocent females are molested, teased or even raped. To add to their woes, they are themselves blamed for their misery. While some politicians lambast the ‘weaker sex’ for its ‘provoking and revealing’ outfits as a trigger for such incidents, the guardians of the society viz. the police indulge in sophistry and besmirch the character of females. Consequently, the safety of females continues to remain imperilled.
