16th December 2012 – The Night that never saw the Dawn – Part 3

Whenever we come across some shocking incident it all of a sudden sends shivers up and down our spine. The cruel incident of 16th December 2012 was certainly one of them. Trust me every time the heading of this blog crosses my vision, it always forces me to think that how aptly it suits in today’s time as well. Yes, the dark night of 16th December 2012 never saw the Dawn.

Ah! India took a sigh of relief considering that finally justice has been achieved in the ‘Nirbhaya’ gang rape case. Everyone around seems to be happy, the courtroom is echoing with the sound of claps, lot of wishes are getting circulated on different platforms because of the very reason that on dated 05th May 2017, the Honourable Supreme court upheld the death sentence passed by the High Court as well as the Lower Court in the said case. A week has passed from that day of judicial pronouncement and almost all the emotional outburst has subsided, so it’s the right time for us to analyse whether Justice is actually achieved in this case or not?

As rightly quoted by Mr. William E. Gladstone “Justice delayed is Justice denied”. Sorry to say, but “Justice has already been denied in the present case” and still we are very proudly celebrating the judicial pronouncement. Mind it this is the situation when the case was taken up in the fast-track court. Now, we can just imagine the fate of all other judicial cases pending before the Honourable courts in our country for years and years. The number of pending cases in the court of law is only going to aggravate the matter and in turn, will leave an impression in the mind of the culprits that they have a free hand to do anything as per their wish.

The time lag in our judicial proceedings could be understood by the very fact that it took almost 9 months to the lower court, 6 months to the Honourable Delhi High Court and 38 long months to the Honourable Supreme Court to pronounce the judgement in the Nirbhaya case. And the culprits still have 3 more chances left to appeal i.e. 1) Reconsideration Petition – A Reconsideration Petition with the Honourable Supreme Court. 2) Curative Petition – If no relief is granted in the Reconsideration Petition then a Curative Petition could be filed 3) Mercy Petition – If no relief is granted against the death sentence in the Curative Petition as well then a Mercy Petition could be filed with the Honourable President of India. (Reference: News article published on dated 06th May 2017 in Dainik Bhaskar, the Hindi Daily Newspaper).

Shame on us that even after such a shocking incidence, which caught the eyes of the world media, we not only missed an opportunity to take strong steps in the area of woman safety but also failed drastically in setting up an example in front of the entire world with a speedy judicial proceeding in such a brutal case. And still, we want to brag about achieving justice in the present case? The hard-core reality is that the victim died a painful death long back, while the culprits still have 3 more options left to prove their innocence even after almost 4½ long years have passed since that incident first took place.

This case truly shows a mirror to our society, and at the same time, unmasks the face of the judicial system in our country. What an irony that in the world’s largest democratic nation, the culprits in a criminal case of this magnitude couldn’t be punished even after almost 4½ long years have passed. We can no more continue to play the game of pointing fingers towards others; rather we as a society have to accept our collective responsibility for such a poor condition of the law and order, as well as, the judicial system in our country.

Herewith, I would like to quote the following paragraph extracted from the second part of this Blog “16th December 2012 – The Night that never saw the Dawn” – Part 2 – 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 incidents and what corrective measures we took to ensure that no such incidents happen 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?

Did we actually take any learning from such brutal rape case? NO, the growing graph of rape cases with every passing ‘hour’ clearly shows the condition of law and order in our country. It also depicts the mindset of our society. I would not be wrong in saying that it’s a male dominating society wherein the females of “any age” are considered as a product to satisfy the never-ending lust of inhuman males.

I would like to end this blog with the very hope that we as a society and nation wake up soon. It’s a high time we work collectively towards saving humanity. If we still don’t get shaken up then we should better be ready to witness more of Nirbhaya’s getting raped every now and then around us. It’s an earnest request to every woman, that please stay safe, and at the same time, I urge every man to please give the much-deserved respect to the women and safeguard them from such inhuman who just consider them as a product of flesh and bones to satisfy their lust.

I wish the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless!

Strike a day keeps the Doctor away

It’s said that “An apple a day keeps the Doctor away” but it seems that in the present scenario a new proverb best suits in i.e. “Strike a day keeps the Doctor away”. To testify this, you just need to look around and you will realize that every now and then, there is news about some violent act between doctors and relatives of the patients in some part of the country. The end result of all such violent acts is that the doctors go on a strike when their basic demand for safety is not being heard by the responsible authorities and every time the common man is left to suffer in absence of the availability of doctors in hospitals for treatment.

After all such incidences the doctors unanimously complaints that they are being abused and assaulted by the relatives of the patients, while, on the contrary, the relatives of the patients accuses the doctors of their careless approach in treating the patients. This tension is building up since long and in the recent time, it has taken a more violent form. Now, we as a society have to decide whether we intend to continue with this sore relationship between the doctors and the patients and be a dumb spectator or else do we aim to bring an end to all this by implementing some drastic measures? So let us try to discuss this serious issue in this blog and find out the ultimate solution to this problem.

Doctors are not God but they are the one who cures us and saves our life. I have never seen God, but I am sure if the Almighty is present then two of the most important activities of their Key Results Area (KRA) would be to cure us of all the ailments and save our life. Hence, it would not be wrong on my part to say that “Even though Doctors are not God, but their act is Godly”. Now, with this serious responsibility of Godly Act, accompanies a lot of expectations “from and towards” a Doctor.

In a doctor’s profession, there is no room for any kind of mistakes. Hence, we can just imagine how cautious doctors need to be while dealing with each and every single patient of theirs. Ever tried to visualize that what will be our anxiety level if we have to work in our respective professions, with such thoughts running at the back of our mind 24X7? Don’t you think that most of us will panic or try to run away from such situation? But the doctor’s can’t afford to and neither do so, they are right there fighting with their anxieties and fatigue day in, day out.

Yet, doctors are not machines, they are indeed humans and chances of “unintentional mistakes” are always likely to happen. Many a time, unlike others, doctors don’t even get a second chance to rectify their unintentional mistakes. The doctors are in fact always walking on burning embers. In spite of all these hardships faced at their end what they get in return? Mind it; herewith I am only talking about the honest and committed doctors. Isn’t it expected from each one of us to at least show some courtesy and give them the much-deserved respect? Is it too much to ask for? Forget about showing respect, some of us don’t even think twice before pointing the finger towards the honest and committed doctors as well? Is this the way a civilized society should behave?

Obviously, one can very well counter that it is their duty and the doctors are being paid for their job and that they are not doing any kind of social service. But trust me, to be an honest and committed doctor it takes more than simply performing the set KRAs. Most of the time these doctors have to go out-of-the-way and undertake tasks which are over and above the so-called KRAs. Now, what inspires them to do so? Believe me, it has nothing to do with earning money but the very thought of helping the patients to recover and get well soon ignites the soul of these honest and committed doctors.

Having said all the above things, we still can’t discard the presence of corrupt and careless doctors in our system altogether. And for that matter, there are corrupt and careless professionals in every field. But this doesn’t mean that we have the right to abuse or assault any doctor when we are not satisfied with their work. Whatever may be the circumstances, no one has the right to take law in their hand. Instead, if we have any complaint against any person then we should register the same with the designated authority, rather than be opting for violent means to let our voice heard.

However, time and again, we hear and witness incidences where either the doctors are being abused and assaulted for not performing their duties diligently or else the patient’s relatives complain about being ill-treated/careless approach by/of the doctors. Now a very valid question strike our mind that should this be the way to treat someone whom we consider next to God, and, at the same time, is such behaviour expected from highly educated professionals like doctors?

The reality is that fault is at both the ends. On one hand, we as a society are responsible for not condemning such violent behaviour of the relatives of the patients or for not standing against the mob that is abusing and assaulting the doctors. On the other hand, the few corrupt and careless doctors are actually bringing disgrace on the name of the entire medical fraternity and it is because of them, that at times, even the innocent doctors are being accused and assaulted for something which they were not involved in or for something that was not in their hands. Similarly, many times, it is seen that just because of the careless approach of some of the doctors, patients have to suffer a lot and also there are cases reported where the patients have even lost their life due to this careless behaviour of the doctors.

So what is the resort available for the innocent doctors against such violent acts? Normally in response to such assaults, the doctors often go on strike when their demand to provide adequate security at the workplace is not heard by the responsible authorities, as well as, the government. But is strike the only mean to get their demands heard and met? And the big question is that are strikes justifiable at all, more importantly in fields like medical which affects the life of living beings?

Similarly, who should the patient and their relatives look upon, when a corrupt or careless doctor doesn’t perform their duty diligently? Often, it is seen that the pain-stressed relatives of patients who are expecting immediate response lose their temper because no one is available to attend the patient or answer their queries and eventually the situation gets out of control.

Before we dig into any kind of solution to solve this issue, one thing should be made extremely clear that irrespective of the circumstances, no one has the right to take law in their hand, be it the doctors or be it the patients and their relatives. But does it mean that we are helpless and could not devise a system which keeps mobs out of the workplace and, at the same time, ensures that all those who are responsible performs their duty diligently?

It’s a high time we need a onetime solution to control such chaotic situation occurring every now and then on the hospital premises. If we are not able to control it now, then this situation is definitely going to aggravate in the near future and in turn, it’s surely going to widen the gap between the doctors and the patients and thereby resulting in a sour relationship. All this is ultimately going to affect the treatment of the patients.

Solution – As a layman, what I think is that to control all such issues a mechanism should be developed which results in a win-win situation for both the parties. I suggest the following measures for controlling such unwanted chaotic situation at a place like a hospital, which should be peaceful all the times –

  1. First of all, surveillance and security should be mandatorily available at each hospital premises, without fail. This will help the doctors in treating the patients without being scared of getting abused or assaulted by anyone. This will further ensure that the situation remains under control all the time and in case anyone tries to take law in their hand then such persons are identified with ease and are punished for their acts. This will not only control the situation but also help in creating a “fear of being watched” in the minds of all those who even think of taking law in their hand.
  1. Secondly, a system should be in place which keeps the track of every single activity from the time a patient arrives in the hospital premises i.e. enters the hospital. Do note that this tracking should start once the patient arrives in the hospital i.e. even before the admission of the patient. This will automatically help in resolving some of the major issues raised by the patients and their relatives i.e. the patient was not attended on time or the doctors were not available or were careless in their approach towards treating the patient.

These are very basic solutions and wouldn’t take much time to implement. The only thing that is required is the right intention and willingness on the part of the responsible authorities to resolve this chronic issue. Sooner the better they realize the importance of resolving this issue and take right decisions in this regard. Do note that without bringing some drastic changes in the system this tension is not going to ease up, rather it is going to aggravate with each passing day. So it is my earnest request to the responsible authorities that in the larger interest of the medical fraternity, as well as, the common men they should take the desired steps at the earliest.

I hope that the responsible authorities take this issue very seriously and also take actions to ensure that no such situation occurs in the future. I urge everyone to behave in a civilized manner and never take law in their hands. If you think that someone has deliberately caused harm to you or to someone else then you should register your complaint on the right platform with the designated authority, rather than getting into violence mode. At the same time, I would like to request every doctor that please perform your duty with utmost dedication and keep up the good work you all are known for. Let the doctors do their Godly Act in a peaceful condition and let the society be benefitted from the honest and committed doctors in the right way.

God Bless you all!

The Martyr’s soul will indeed be Proud

Miss Gurmehar Kaur, a 20-year-old student of Delhi University, is being trolled and threatened for opposing one of the acts of Akhil Bharatiya Vidyarthi Parishad (ABVP). She basically hails from Jalandhar, India and was a part of the campaign run against ABVP on social media platform. Herewith, please be noted that it is being alleged that the members of ABVP were involved in the violence that took place on dated 22nd February 2017 in the campus of Ramjas College, New Delhi. Now it’s for the authorities and the investigation agencies to investigate and reveal the names of all those who were involved in that violent act.

However, it seems that as a “customary act” once again the attention has been deliberately shifted from the main issue to the opposition of that very issue. So, before reaching to any conclusion, it will be prudent for us to know that what this girl was actually opposing. Was her stand in favour of any Anti-Nation activity? Was she opposing any kind of legal activity? Above all what exactly she wanted to convey? And to find the answer to all such questions, we will have to go through the post of Gurmehar Kaur. If anyone with sane mind looks at her post, they could easily figure it out that she was simply opposing any kind of violence in the college. Further, to voice her stand against violence this brave girl openly dared ABVP that she is not afraid of them.

Now, I seriously fail to understand that what is the mistake of this girl in raising her voice against a serious issue? In a country whose “Father of the Nation” was himself against any kind of violence is it wrong on the part of a Martyr’s daughter to raise her voice against violence? Nowadays, how easy it is to pronounce anything as an Anti-Nation activity. If someone raises their voice against any kind of injustice, they are held as Anti-Nation. What kind of democracy is this where one who speaks against violence has to leave the city and those who were actually involved in that violence are still roaming freely in that very city?

Shame on us that in the heat of opposing someone we can fall to such a low-level, that we don’t even hesitate in threatening people from raping them. What kind of society is this where the educated youths are indulging in violence and still they get support in the name of Patriotism? However valid our point may be but who on earth gave us the right to take law in our hands? A democratic nation should have a zero tolerance policy against any kind of violence. Only then we can make our country a safe place to live in.

Surprisingly, the tech savvy Central Government always keeps mum whenever such incidences take place, especially in which people related to their political party are involved. While, at all the other time, the Central Government’s ministers including our Pradhan Sevak are super active on social media platforms. Why can’t the Central Government take a strong stand against any kind of violence and come out openly to oppose all those who were involved in such kind of acts? I hope they know it that they are a People’s Government, not a Party Specific Government.

A Central Minister on this incidence commented that “The Martyr’s soul must be crying”. Mr. Minister, it’s not the martyr’s soul, rather we should be the one who should be crying on such a treatment with a martyr’s family in our country. It is the same nation to which Late Captain Mandeep Singh gave preference over his family or any other thing. It is the same nation for which he gave away his life in the 1999 Kargil war. It is the same nation for which the martyr’s father too served in the armed force. And for all this sacrifice and love towards the nation what he gets in return?

His daughter is not safe in the same country, she is being threatened with rape and murder, she is getting trolled for voicing against violence and above all she has to leave the city for security reasons. Is this the way a martyr’s family should be treated within his own country? Forget about showing respect towards the martyrs, these people can’t even respect the dignity of a female. However, it is commendable that in spite of all the threats the brave girl stands against the sick minded people. Seeing her daughter’s brave stand, the martyr’s soul will indeed be Proud.

I would like to end this blog with the hope that may we always choose a peaceful and a decent way of protesting against anything that we want to oppose. Let there be freedom of speech and expression in a real sense. For the sake of this nation, I urge everyone not to link each and everything with an anti-nation act. I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God Bless you all!

Ruchita Jain murder investigation – Was the approach of investigation officers right in this case?

Disclaimer: This blog is not meant to bring down the image of the Police department or entire investigation agencies. The blogger in true spirit respects the hard work that the Police Department is doing. However, the content of this blog should be taken as learning by the concerned officers, department and each one of us, so that mistakes like these are not repeated in future and the very motive of true justice is actually achieved in the real sense.


Last year, on dated 01st December 2016, a young lawyer named Mrs. Ruchita Jain w/o Mr. K. B. Gupta was brutally killed in broad daylight in her residence located at Flat No. 702, Orbit Apartment – 1, New Bhupalpura, Udaipur (Rajasthan). As per the post-mortem report, she was mercilessly stabbed 17 times with a wrench tool, resulting in serious injuries on her head and body. She died on the spot.

The soul shivers even with the thought that how painful the last few minutes of her life would have been. The loss of someone’s life is irrecoverable and it surely would have changed the life of her husband and their two little kids. This case indeed shocked the entire peace-loving community of Udaipur and left everyone thinking that how safe we all are. For a few days, there was an air of fear and suspicion, in and around the city, especially in the locality where this murder took place. Everyone was coming up with their version of the case or some latest updates on it.

All eyes were finally gazed on the Police Department to crack this case and unearth the culprit, as well as, the motive behind such a cruel incidence. The Sukher Police Station, on dated 22nd February 2017 i.e. 82 days after the incidence filed the 141-page charge sheet with the court. Although the police department and the concerned officers are patting their back for solving this so-called “difficult” case, still there are a lot of questions that has emerged from the working style of the Police Department as is evident in those crucial 82 days.

There were a few lapses on the part of the investigating team, which somehow points fingers on the credibility of the entire department and their working style. Below mentioned 6 points reflects the approach of investigation officers in this case –

  1. The superfast local police officers actually boasted to have solved this case on the very second day of the murder itself i.e. on dated 02nd December 2016, the Superintendent of Police (SP) Udaipur, claimed that they have solved the murder mystery and arrested the husband of the victim on charges of killing his own wife. – Without any solid evidence, against any suspect, is it justifiable to defame them in front of the entire world simply because the investigation agencies have some doubts about their involvement? Was the department in so much hurry to grab the praises that they even forgot to collect any single evidence against the husband before accusing him of being the murderer? Is there any possibility that this was intentionally done so that the actual culprit could get away in the present case?
  1. However, after the above claim by the police department of solving the case, on day 3 after the murder, a new angle came into limelight when one of the residences of the same Apartment, Divy Kothari, surrendered at Fatehpura, Police Station, claiming that he has murdered Mrs. Ruchita. Hence, the police have to release Mr. Gupta (husband of the victim) on account of acceptance of crime by the accused Divy Kothari. – After realising that it was a blunder on the part of the police department to charge and publicly announce the victim’s husband as the murderer, wasn’t it their responsibility to not only publicly accept their mistake but also apologize to Mr. Gupta and his family for defaming them?
  1. Further, the prime accused in this case Divy Kothari was also successful in misleading the police officers by acting so brilliantly that the police officers blindly believed on his side of the story that he was suffering from some mental disorder. Once again the investigation team, solely based on the story served to them by Divy Kothari, almost concluded that the accused was suffering from the mental disorder known as ‘Psychosis’ (loss of contact with reality) and in the influence of the same he killed the victim. – Is it believable that once again without any supporting evidence the officers concerned were eager to reach on to conclusions every now and then in the same case? Was it just a mistake on the part of the department to believe the story of the accused as told by him or was it done intentionally again?
  1. After realising that once again they have made a blunder in believing the claims with plain eyes, the police department got into a thorough investigation which resulted into the fact that Divy was just trying to fool the police officers and thereby mislead the investigation. Further, the team collected all the Forensic Science Laboratory (FSL) evidence “based on the information extracted from the accused”, which resulted in factual proofs to claim Divy as the actual accused in the present case. – Is there any valid reason which such learned officials could provide behind not taking help of the FSL evidence on the very first day of the investigation in a murder case? Is this the normal practice followed by the department to reach on to the conclusion? Isn’t the improper investigation major reason of accused being set free of charge in most of the cases?
  1. Quite surprisingly, even after all these blunders on the part of the department, the Station House Officer (SHO) in charge of the case was reported saying that “It was the toughest and challenging case of his entire life”. (Reference: Report published on dated 23rd February 2017 in Dainik Bhaskar Hindi daily newspaper) – Well, who better than the department people could tell that was this case actually difficult to crack or not? Was it actually a complicated case when the accused himself surrendered in front of the police and accepted that he has murdered Mrs. Ruchita? What was left for the department was to simply collect evidence with the help of the FSL team, based on the information extracted from the accused, isn’t it? Now, was it that difficult to do for such experienced and capable officers of the police force?
  1. Finally, I would like to raise an important point which has been altogether neglected in this case. For your information, a tortoise was found in the house of Mrs. Ruchita Jain and the picture of the tortoise that was clicked by the accused, just before the murder is one of the FSL evidence in the present case. However, there is no mention of the fact that was this tortoise a legal breed that is allowed to be kept as a pet in India or not. If not, then why the officials didn’t lodge any FIR against the responsible person for keeping a tortoise in the house, which under the Wildlife Protection Act is illegal. – Although it is not related to the murder mystery, still it should have been taken care of by the concerned team. In absence of which, we are forced to think that was it sheer negligence on the part of the investigation agencies or were they themselves unaware of the laws prevailing in the country?

At the end, I would like to wish that may the departed soul rest in peace and the culprit gets punished for the offence. I do hope that the investigation agencies work diligently in every case and ensure that none of the culprits is set free just because the investigation done at their end was improper. I would further like to appeal each one of you “To be cautious and be safe” because that is the only way we can reduce the number of such incidences happening around us.

God Bless you all.

Flaunting too much on social networking platforms? – Beware you are being watched

Are you obsessed with flaunting too much on social networking platforms? Do you enjoy sharing all the events happening in your personal life with the virtual world? Is everyone in your network always aware about your travelling plans? Do you feel proud in flashing with the online community, your event calendar, which comprises of all the forthcoming events that you are planning to attend? If your head nodded against any of the above questions then better beware because you are being watched.

At the outset, let me make it very clear that your social networking account is solely your property and it’s only you who have the right to decide that what and how much you want to reveal about yourself and your activities with the virtual world. I am no one to stop you from sharing your stuff with whoever you wish too. I very well know that it’s none of my business to interfere in your personal life. Hence, this blog is not meant to question your personal choice in any manner, rather it’s an attempt to throw some light on the risk involved with opening up too much on social networking platforms. I urge everyone to read this blog with an open mind and also educate others about the risk they carry with their social networking accounts.

No doubt there is an ocean of data available on the subjects pertaining to the dangers and precautions to be taken while dealing with the virtual world. Still, all of us tend to make mistakes every now and then and hence we need timely reminders to save us from any unfortunate event that might occur otherwise in our life. As such, I have tried to jot down three of the most common practical mistakes visible on social networking platforms which make us vulnerable to a lot of threatening incidences.

The three most common mistakes on social networking platforms are excessive sharing of –

  1. Personal Information – If you feel proud to share your personal life and most importantly your pictures every now and then revealing yourself in expensive attires, displaying the places you often visit, your workplace, your contact details, exposing the details about your family members, name of your kid’s school or any place they frequently visit, etcetera. Then better be cautious because you and your family members are prone to very high risk. The social networking platforms are being watched from every corner and who knows you might soon be hosting an uninvited guest knocking at your door. Sharing of excessive information might also lead to someone stalking you. So it’s better for you to keep a check on things you want to share with others so that you don’t risk your life, as well as, the life of your closed ones. Now next time before sharing too much of your personal information make sure that you at least have a Z+ security by your side to safeguard you from any kind of unwanted incidences happening in your life.
  1. Travel Plans – One of the biggest blunders being committed on social networking accounts is to share the travelling plans. I mean just imagine that you are leaving your home and you publish that information in front of the entire world. By this kind gesture of yours “especially towards the thieves” you not only open your gates for them to trespass your home with utmost ease but, at the same time, you also put the life of your loved ones back home, at stake. Just because you want to flaunt in front of the entire world that you are travelling to different locations on business, personal or vacation trips, you publish such critical information, which in itself is a sufficient data for a person with malicious intentions to take advantage of. Such casual posts of yours, act as the most vital information about your absence from the place of residence. Don’t forget that in this data mining age your account details could very well be churned up based on your past information to extract details such as the most likely time for your next vacation trip, etcetera. Now you can just imagine how safe you, your family members and your property back home is, after that post of yours. Isn’t it a suicidal attempt?
  1. Event Calendar – If you feel proud in flashing with the online community, your event calendar consisting of all the forthcoming events you are planning to attend in the near future, then it’s the right time for you to hear the danger bell ringing exclusively for you. No doubt you get that urge to exhibit in front of the entire world, the prestigious events (which others can’t afford to go) or even the social gatherings you are going to attend, but by this small act of yours, you simply give an opportunity to someone with malicious intentions to either stalk you or even trespass your place in your absence. Showcasing things to the outside world may be a matter of extreme pride for you, but do give it a thought that is your over flaunting attitude somehow making your life too prone to unwanted risk or what.

However, one could easily counter on this by replying that sharing their personal stuff is a means of being in touch with other people. If they wouldn’t be sharing all that, then such platforms would never have been a real success. If people like them don’t flaunt themselves on such platforms then how would others be able to pass their time? It’s only because of people like them who share the so-called interesting stuff that others get the opportunity to peek into their life and enjoy. To all this, I would simply like to say that we are extremely obliged to them for sharing their personal stuff in abundance and we also look forward to more and more “personal” stuff coming from them.

Now, it’s up to you whether you want to “Share Smartly or Simply Share”. The choice is yours after all life is yours. Further, if you think that sharing your details only with “Friends” or “Friends of Friends” is quite safe, then sooner or later this bubble of yours will get burst too, because when the social networking accounts of big personalities are easily being hacked then you can just imagine how safe your account is.

As rightly said by Mr. Johann Wolfgang von Goethe “Precaution is better than cure”, so let us all be cautious before any unfortunate event happens with anyone of us because of our excessive information sharing attitude. Everything has a positive and a negative side attached to it and it’s for us to decide and take advantage of the positive side, while not getting carried away by the negative side. Stay safe and do take a very good care of yourself and everyone around you. Be guided and share the information with others too. Act smart and make use of the social networking platforms wisely.

Be in touch.

God Bless!

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!

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil… – Part 2

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (Hey heart, it’s difficult)…Yes, once again, it’s difficult to understand that how come, in a democratic nation, a political party (having a regional presence), has got the license to distribute “Patriotic Certificate” to the citizens of our country. For your information, “as of now”, they have fixed the charges of obtaining this certificate as Rs. 5 Crores, to be deposited in the Army Relief Fund. It’s indeed good news and an opportunity to grab, for all those who want to flaunt their patriotism by hanging the “Patriotic Certificate” on the wall of their Drawing room. Hurry up, go and grab this offer, before it gets expired or the rates are revised. After all, who knows, maybe it’s a limited period offer or a Diwali gift offered from the ‘Supremo’ of the so-called political party. So, better don’t miss this opportunity and get yourself certified, just by paying a ‘ransom’ oops donation of Rs. 5 Crore.

Is fixing the price by the self-acclaimed contractors of patriotism, their way of giving tribute to the sacrifices done by the soldiers of Motherland India? Wow, what a patriotic move, isn’t it? It’s just unbelievable that anyone can fall to such level. I wonder whether these people ever miss any opportunity to bake their political bread. Just for fulfilling their political agenda, they can very shamelessly take advantage of even the martyrs who lost their life protecting our country from the enemies. I fail to understand that what kind of politics is this which purely breeds on threatening the citizens of India, every now and then? How can the members of any political party be allowed to take law in their hands and destroy public and national property, in the name of patriotism?

Surprisingly, people from the Indian Film Industry, who were claiming themselves to be patriotic by publishing their videos, didn’t take long to bent their knees in front of the ‘Supremo’ of a political party. Just to get their movie released in that specific state, they agreed to the unlawful demand of the politicians. Doesn’t this in itself proves that their priority is only business, even if it requires parting away with the ideology? Just for the sake of saving themselves from a financial loss, they agreed to such terms, which any person who has a little bit of self-respect would never ever agree to. Alas, those who were claiming to be a soft target, themselves proved that they are soft enough to be threatened and compelled to act as per the orders and willingness of those who want to target them.

What was the government of that specific state doing when this deal among the contractors of patriotism and the persons related to that movie was taking place? Is it that they didn’t have any idea of such deal taking place? Or were they acting as a mediator to resolve this issue and came up with this fantastic idea of authorizing that political party to ask for an amount of Rs. 5 Crore to be deposited in the Army Relief Fund? Is the state government so helpless in front of all those who were publicly threatening that they won’t allow the screening of such movies in their vicinity? Didn’t the respective state government failed completely in tackling this issue and sending a strong message to all those who are behind the disturbances taking place in our society, time and again?

A serious question that comes to my mind is that whether the election commission takes note of all such incidences or not? Can’t the election commission cancel the registration of any political party based on the kind of violent activities they are always involved in? Is election commission only active at the time of elections or do they have some kind of a role to play in monitoring the actions of political parties, on an ongoing basis? Should political parties with a violent mindset and agenda be allowed to operate in a democratic nation?

All of us should think seriously that what kind of people are ruling over us. Does such kind of steps taken by the government, sends the right message to the peaceful citizens of our country, who always abide by the law? Will the common citizens ever feel safe, when those who govern them are themselves appearing helpless in front of the political parties? This deal should be an eye opener for each and every peace-loving citizen of Motherland India. It’s rightly said that a sleeping citizen is a threat to its nation itself. It’s a high time for all of us to wake up before they start threatening us and debar us from each and every legitimate right of ours that is bestowed to us by the Constitution of India. I do hope that the awakened citizens unite together and send a strong message to the political parties and their leaders that their violent agendas are not going to threaten us or not going to help them to win elections.

I wish that the Almighty give good sense to each one of us.

God bless you all!
