The Sisters are In...

Sometime ago, I decided to walk alone on a poorly lit street, not many miles away from my imagination. I, pretty soon, made it a hobby, and started enjoying the sound that hit my ears when I rubbed the soles of my shoes against wet gravel.
As time moved on, that darkness started drowning me into screams that filled the empty road. The street moved out of my head, and soon became the capital of India.

Girls tell me they won't do higher education here. They say they'd rather not do college from here. They tell me it isn't safe here; they tell me that Delhi isn't safe for women.
It's only right what they said. Nobody deserves to live a half-dead life.

It's getting harder to spot a single week (read day) without "rape" being mentioned in the news.
One day it's that boy from across the street, the second it's those bullies from college and another day, it's your neighbour. Any guesses for who's next?

For a society like this, I blame something that it reflects and affects most - the movies.
Ban the smoking, and pay a few hundred bucks to watch something that's bound not have a bad effect on society - a mediocre porn movie.
Why does something explicit manage to get a "U\A" at a maximum and smoking cannot be shown on-screen? Is it because smoking is something the young are bound to copy? Then won't they copy something that fires up their libido?
I assume that is what they are doing, and that is why they are watching that movie in the first place. And trust me, there's nothing that will hit more of the masses than a movie, be it in a dark multiplex or via a pirated CD.

Because that's a medium most of this generation looks up to, smoking has been canned, but why is it not the same with sex that makes them even more desperate?
As for the nicotine, ask the boy in 10th grade who's already going up in it's smoke.

Heck, and as long as you are throwing in reservations in college for "backward" people who stand tall at our level, put some in for the ladies, too. They're going to be part of the minority once feticides and sexual abuses reach surface.

  13. I am leaving blogspot fer some time want to start things fresh..will let you abt my new blog when its done


  14. Blame the movies and you could be making this society more "conservative", which is in reality the core problem!

    Right, movies fire up their libido, but it is just one source. They have internet too.

    Question is, why do they get so excited just with so little exposure that they mess up their minds to the extent of a rape?

    Answer is, the society has kept them conserved since their childhood.

    When they were little, they were kept away from the girls. They never got to know them as a human being, as friends.
    Now, they have grown as frustrated people who never explored their sexual desires. When they see movies, they will get turn on HIGH.

    India has always been opposing western trends thinking to makeover for all its wrong doings.

    Here too, if we stop showing the explicit stuff in movies, the desires will find their own path to satisfy. "It's like you look for water when you are thirsty".

    We will simply delay and make this society more and more conservative.

    In western countries, everything is open. How many cases do you find there? They are open and explore each and everything right in time. They lose their cherries in early teenage. No one is so damn frustrated as people are in India.

    Solutions that I have come up with may sound hilarious for some, but it is the reality that will override all the decisions that India will be taking...

    " Prostitution should be made legal"

    Or take my words,

    it will be happen and the only question is how can we delay this by making ourselves more and more conserve!?!?!

  15. @Jack:
    I agree. This was a serious flaw in my post, leaving out this part..

    I agree again. But frustration? Is this what people here have dragged themselves into?
    Is fulfilling one's sexual desires the only escape from frustration?
    I agree once again, and yes, this does play as one of the reasons.

    But I also believe (as far as we need to be open, and not keep this taboo), prostitution is a step too far...

    Do let me know. :D

  16. hey Abhas
    thats quite a nice,serious stuff
    i too agree with you on this.
    delhi deffinitely is not a place for girls.

    and are u scared for the result??

  17. @Anonymous:
    Why should I be scared of that? ;)

  18. hmm.... well.. n u think theres rape only here? we read of rapes in flat front china, in modernist new york n even cut off gulf... but well, frequencies of ur description r in no light acceptable.
    so its not a matter or conservative culture n crap... its beyond all tht... its jus a momentary lapse of reason...

  19. The mater is not only with pron movies. They have internet too.
    the desires r in people.
    but all sorts of bad things take then out eg. alcohol.etc things that intoxicate. even movies and watching women does that...which ultimately leads to frustration...

    to talk about what jack said is totally contrary. if every thing is open there thin he dosent realise more rape cases take place New york, London ...probably he dosent watch foreign news channels.....girls not even mature of age 5 or 8 get raped by old adults.....

    There r a lot things worse there.....its a misconception that when things r open u wont be frustrated, but just the opposite u know a country where min rape cases take place......Saudi Arabia...why?..

    it might seem that they subjugate women but in reality the women there guard their modesty....the punishment for rape is ..death...if u even blame a women over there about her chastity ,she might take u to court and the person gets a severe punishment if found guilty.Women r respected there, no one can say those abusive words of mothers and sisters to you over there...even if he does he cannot get away with it.same with other countries like Iran Yemen etc.

    the language they use is different than ours therefore we have no contact with them ..the west uses English and hence we know them..
    The western media shows them in a wrong picture...especially about women..ironically Islam is the fastest spreading religion in the west and US UK and majority of the converts are women....

    we watch western movies and get do people there in the US ,UK teenagers have sex at at a very early age with their school going colleagues and friends their life they have many such partners....and even after marrige adultry is very common.

    Prostitution is more common abroad and things r very bad there .the sacred love between a husband and wife is being commercialised....
    prostitution should be banned like it should be .Not how it is banned now.

    The laws are too weak, really.Laws are there so that a person may fear the punishment. If the crime is commited the punishment should be shown to the people and it should be severe...else we know whats happening now.. a rape commited and the person is set free after a short duration in jail ...does it help in reducing the the rape rate amend the laws.

    Western society falsely claims to have uplifted women
    Western talk of women’s liberalization is nothing but a disguised form of
    exploitation of her body, degradation of her soul, and deprivation of her honour.
    Western society claims to have ‘uplifted’ women. On the contrary it has actually
    degraded them to the status of concubines, mistresses and society butterflies
    who are mere tools in the hands of pleasure seekers and sex marketeers,
    hidden behind the colourful screen of ‘art’ and ‘culture’.
    9. USA has one of the highest rates of rape
    United States of America is supposed to be one of the most advanced countries
    of the world. It also has one of the highest rates of rape in any country in the
    world. According to a FBI report, in the year 1990, every day on an average
    1756 cases of rape were committed in U.S.A alone. Later another report said
    that on an average everyday 1900 cases of rapes are committed in USA. The
    year was not mentioned. May be it was 1992 or 1993. May be the Americans
    got ‘bolder’ in the following years.
    Consider a scenario where the Islamic hijab is followed in America. Whenever
    a man looks at a woman and any brazen or unashamed thought comes to his
    mind, he lowers his gaze. Every woman wears the Islamic hijab, that is the
    complete body is covered except the face and the hands upto the wrist. After
    this if any man commits rape he is given capital punishment. I ask you, in such
    a scenario, will the rate of rape in America increase, will it remain the same, or
    will it decrease?

  20. @Sam:
    A heavy punishment is exactly what I'm looking for. And if I'm not mistaken, I believe drug users meet the same consequence once they're caught there.

    A punishment enough to scare the heck out of whoever even thinks of doing such a thing is really needed. That will not only take care of the ones who commit the crime, but also the ones who may do so.

    Nice to have your word, Sam. I hope you come back for more.
