16th December 2012 – The Night that never saw the Dawn – Part 2

Exactly 4 years back, on this very day of 16th December, humanity was killed. An innocent 23 years girl was brutally gang-raped in a moving bus on the streets of New Delhi, India. The inhuman males went to the extent of inserting a rusted iron rod in her genital organs and assaulting her so bad that even her intestine came out of the body. My fingers were actually trembling while typing all that, can’t even imagine that “in reality” what the girl would have gone through. It was indeed a Night that never saw the Dawn.

Everyone unanimously mourned on the brutal killing of humanity and it looked as if the world is going to change from the very next day. But, unsurprisingly, nothing actually changed as such. Life came back to its normal pace and we got busy in our daily routine. We, the so-called humans, have a tendency to forget everything so easily. The very next moment we tend to behave as if nothing actually happened. After all who cares, right?

Whenever any inhuman act happens, as a ritual we will mourn a bit, sympathetically discuss all such cases and after some time we will be back to our normal chores. It won’t be wrong on my part to say that majority of us are least bothered about others. We actually don’t care about anything that happens with others. The truth is that we are just concerned about the well-being of ourselves and our closed ones. In this fast paced overburdened race of life, who has time to think about other people’s life, right?

Yes, humanity indeed gets killed every time such inhuman act occurs. But, the culprits are not alone to be held responsible for this killing of humanity, rather we, as a society, are equally responsible for all such inhuman acts happening around us. It’s a high time we question ourselves that what learning we took from the past incidences and what corrective measures we took to ensure that no such incident happens with anyone again. How long will it take for us to realize that today it may have happened with a stranger, but tomorrow it could happen to anyone of us or our family members? Are we waiting for that day when we will be the victim?

How shameful on our part that we are not even able to bring down the number of rape cases in our country, forget about stopping them completely. With each passing year, the graph of rape cases is showing an upward trend only. This, in itself, shows the condition of law and order in our country. None of the common men is safe. We can’t be sure whether the females of our family will reach home safely or not. It seems as if we are breeding a criminal safe universe.

At the same time, the judicial system of our country is so fast that even after 4 long years the case is yet to be decided. Who is getting benefited by such judicial system, the culprit or the victims? I fail to understand that when courts can open at odd hours to decide about the hanging of a terrorist, then what stops them to speed up the judicial proceedings in such sensitive cases at least? And still, they expect a common man to have full faith in the judicial system.

Sooner the better we realize that until the time our society gets awakened and shake the political and judicial system to tighten up the law and order condition in our country, nothing is actually going to change in reality. If at all we want to save humanity than matters like woman safety should be on top of our priority list. And do remember that it’s an ongoing process and we have to push things till our objective is met. We can’t afford anymore to forget and wait for another incident to happen wherein we will mourn once again. If we want this world to be a safer place to live in, then we have to take drastic steps right now.

Herewith, I would like to quote the following paragraph extracted from the first part of this Blog “16th December 2012 – The Night that never saw the Dawn” – 16th December 2012, was a day of shame, a day of sorrow, a day of emotional outburst, and a day of introspection for every human soul. It is not about a city, not about a country, not about modernization, not about culture but it is about humanity. Humanity is at stake. Joseph Conrad (a polish author) once said that “Being a woman is a terribly difficult task since it consists principally in dealing with men”. Today, if we look around we will agree to what he said. But is it only about agreeing with what he said or do we want to change the views? Yes, we can change it by giving the much deserved “respect & love to every single woman”. I am sure our respect & love towards the woman will indeed enable us one day, to quote that “Being a woman is the most wonderful task since it consists principally in dealing with men”. That day humanity will feel proud on Humans.

I would like to end this blog with a request to every male that “It’s a high time we male take a pledge, that let the female be our mother, sister, friend, colleague, wife or in any other relation to name with but never ever be our victim”. At the same time, I would like to request every female that please be safe and please be extra cautious.

God bless!

A writer at heart and creative at art. Someone who wants his words to leave an impact. Someone who is hungry for genuine feedback and not the number of likes. The thought behind my writing has always been to revolutionize the thought process which is overpowered with the set obsolete parameters, as well as, to bring into life, a new perspective towards everything around us. When I am penning down these lines, the beautiful composition by Mr. Dushyant Kumar Tyagi strikes my mind, "Sirf hungama khada karna mera maksad nahi, Meri koshish hai ki yeh soorat badalni chahiye; Merey seeney mein nahi to terey seeney mein sahi, Ho kahin bhi aag lekin aag jalni chahiye". The meaning of this verse (in my words) is that - My only motive is not of rabble-rousing, but my efforts are directed towards bringing about a change; I want the fire of awareness to lit somewhere, if not in my heart then maybe in yours, but the fire has to lit. Readers are a writer’s strength and one of the motivating factors that keep the writer always alive. All the honest readers are undoubtedly the unbiased mirror of a writer’s content. Hope the readers like my blogs and could correlate with them. It will be an honour if the readers are able to gain something worth from my write ups. At the same time, it will be my pleasure to know your honest views. Each and every single feedback is highly appreciated. So do not hesitate to comment with utmost truth in your words. Keep reading and keep learning. I wish you all a very healthy, happy and a prosperous life. Love to all. Be in touch. Take care and God Bless!
