Dented and Painted Women

Nirbhaya Rape Case in New Delhi
Nirbhaya Rape Case in New Delhi

"Women who are participating in candle-light vigils and those who are protesting have no connection with ground reality. These pretty ladies coming out to protest are 'highly dented and painted'."

What a sensible,sensitive and significant observation from Mr. Abhijeet Mukherjee (Member of Parliament) and highly intellectual son of our president Mr. Pranab Mukherjee. I am impressed that one intelligent person out of thousands, just sat watching the protests to only notice the glam quotient in these recent uprisings. To top it up he even publicly compliments (in fewer words) the women folk for their dressing style, sense of fashion and their non serious motives. So from his perception all these women who came out of their houses , offices , schools ,colleges did so to garner TV footage and attention for their pretty personalities.Wonderful !

Mr. Abhijeet has really made me forget the ordeal and fight of the 23 year old girl but notice his uncanny sense of a roving eye. I am sure he has a Plasma TV and a DTH connection at home because nuances like colour of lipstick , make up , jewellery , clothes can be viewed best in that set up. This remark has come after a considerable 7-10 days and seems to be well thought off. Kudos to the son of our President for not only achieving instant fame but also ensuring his father also shares the pride. It's anyways holidays and both can bask in the glory of the adulation that the 'Mango People' and specially the women will bestow upon both of them.

I must say the present day MP's and MLA's are witty , humorous , intelligent and observant. The economy and state of affairs of the country are anyways downhill so conversations like these keep people warm and engaged. Otherwise we might witness similar uprising for unemployment , corruption , murder , poverty etc.. and then more events like 'India Gate- Fashion Week'. The economic growth and overall sentiment of the country is bleak and if such fashion events are more regularly organised men will find it very tough to pay for the high maintenance of their spouses,sisters and friends. Mr. Abhijeet also knows in hindsight that women don't like to pose with the same set of clothes more than once. This is the most logical and convincing reason for not holding protests because to look 'Dented and Painted' every time, you will have to shell a fortune. Didn't i tell you these politicians are so very much intelligent ??

So women folk, next time when you decide to support a 'frivolous' cause like Women Safety , Rape , Molestation etc. make sure you all are well dressed and make up is in place . Our Politicians are connoisseurs of fun, fashion and beauty !!

Internet Generation Demands Justice

The whole of the  last week was consumed by the news of 23 year old girl being molested and inhumanely tortured, in New Delhi. For the past 3-4 days thousands of young children are protesting at India Gate, President House and outside the hospital where the girl is admitted. The news channels,social media, newspapers , tabloids , radio went berserk in reporting the public protest that followed this incident. This response form the masses has been very uncharacteristic of so called 'We The Adjusting and Tolerating Indians'.What really sets it apart is the participation of the youth of our country who came from schools, colleges , workplaces and even their homes. No one has asked them to join this march of protest and demand justice for the poor girl, they all have united by their own will. This is what i intend to point out ! 

The generation of today, that is perceived as 'Internet and Gadget generation' is not accommodating and forgiving like their parents and the society like wise. We have often termed them as spoiled,uncompromising  ,rash,rude,indifferent and non caring but this single incident makes me think otherwise. They could be possessing all the the attributes defined above or none of them but one thing is sure, their thought process is not so immature as perceived to be.  Watch any news channel and hear out to the kids barely of 20 years of age and see their views on molestation , equality , gender bias , governance and their expectations. You will be surprised to learn of their awareness and their rightful demand for the benefits that should come to every citizen of India. What is wrong if they are asking for security ,well being and safety from the elected representatives of the common people ? This untoward event of molestation has triggered the fire that has been shimmering within these young hearts. From the day they were born all they have seen is corruption,  loot , plunder , insecurity , immorality , ineffectiveness and injustice. Enough is Enough !

It's time the society and the people in power understand that this India that is young and capable is also equally demanding. This protest might or might not bring immediate justice to the girl but one thing that is out in open is, the kids have come of their age. They don't want your answers in weeks and months but in hours and days. I am personally happy and delighted at this mass uprising of the youth. Every nation's future rests on these young shoulders and if they are bent upon creating a society based on basic tenets of good governance i think they should be heard. All my support to these young voices for their resolution,support, will ,character and most importantly to the victimized girl battling for her life. All my prayers are with her for a speedy recovery and well being.
