An incident of Delhi


We witness
what happened to that girl
in delhi
and listen
we only witnessed
and nothing else
did she pay the price
for being a girl

who rapes
are they human beings?
they are the evil monsters
they got human skins
they are the slur
on our country.

to all my countrymen
i am appealing
please raise your voice
name it for justice
and see the change
i gurantee

    Change is possible only if you change the attittude.The Delhi rape set off a firestorm all across the nation then it petered out after a month.The government needs to get rid of the damn Chalega attitude.I am not going to give you a whole nine yards here but we all know the steps taken by the government right after the girl died was definetely not enough.Hey Survi by the way congrats again for bringing up a thought provking subject (Report) Reply

    There is power in numbers and numbers come from awareness.

    students can play a vital role against women harassment. School, college, university students should take up the matter. they can easily raise their voice and brought this matter to the public.what did the students of your IIT do in this matter.would you raise any protest in your campus. Take care.My cooperation will always with you (Report) Reply

    people often raise their voice only when disasters come and then in few days they become silent like nothing ever happened and it has became a trend girls have accomplished so much today yet they are still the unlucky one..
    let us live not suffer please don't make us feel like being girl is a curse....

    I guess from now own, girls should know how to carry themselves with a strong and graceful identity
    Its hard to be a woman because it's not easy to get easy..even being a man also same
    i mean everyone has own valuable life to be protected and to be heard
    i am glad you stand here and remind people what we should! _Soul (Report) Reply
