Look, there is development, running ahead of India and there is our nation chasing it, by all means.
Undoubtedly, India is and will be linked to a better tomorrow and a better nation. However, what takes a toll on me and many other minds akin to me, is that decorating the house from the outside is all? Keep the lavish furniture and extravagant weapons of flaunting the wealth, is that all?
Wasn’t it about people making a house, an actual home?
Well, we all know the answer. It’s obviously rhetorical and obviously visible how I keep it as an example.
But that’s not the point to ponder.
We are well aware of the atrocities faced by Indians, as a whole. Gladly, pain and sufferings do not follow reservation policies.
Hence, the umbrella covers all of us, united we stand under the umbrella of atrocities.
Interestingly, if I may ask, who causes these adverse plight to the citizens(Harassments, Cheating, Exploitation, Slavery, Trafficking, Isolating, Disparaging, etc),
Sadly, not Government.
In a first, the citizens, we the people of India( as the preamble of the Indian Constitution begins).
Isn’t he who rapes a 12 year old in the city of Awadh an Indian?
Or those who chase and beat a Swedish couple(tourists) in Fatehpur Sikri? Or those who gave definition to the Nirbhaya Case, Delhi?
Or all those who we see or read about.
A recent example comes from the heart of incredible India, a young college girl was absconded by 4 young enough men( or they don’t deserve to be called men)
In the area called Habibganj which isn’t sparsely crowded.
But they were night hours or as to a criminal mind, opportunity hours.
She was dragged to some nearby bushes and raped until she resembled a corpse.
Later, police officers, yes those who swear to protect the nation, yes they did not register her complain.
Moreover, a woman constable was alleged to have asked the victim inappropriate questions, she sure was looking for a sex story there, how cool isn’t she?
Will sheer suspension cure their mental rust?
Build their character?
I don’t think so.
I’m sure governance is to be blamed, purely and prompt strict actions are to be desired.
In toto, government needs to do it all, at least according to all those who are knowledged about this incident or other of this sort.
However, a curious mind would really want to know,
Are we some careless, spoiled brats who need parenting from the government?
Not that government isn’t required or these situations do not exist at ever layer of the social pyramid.
But, is criminal a race, a religion, a gender?
Can they be caught while they plan such heinous situations in their minds?
Can we read faces, too impeccably?
It’s impossible for normal homo sapiens.
So shall we wait of Marvel superheroes?
It’s high time we understand, criminals are not born but created.
Criminal is not a category but a state of mind, a person develops.
It’s high time we need a check on our morals and character.
Governance would work if the major chunk of people join the right side.
Become more rational.
Did we know that United Kingdom does not have a written Constitution?
Because they believe that the citizens are mature enough to monitor themselves and acknowledge their duties and rights.
Not that UK resides in utopia but it sure sets an example.
More than anything,
Indians define India.
What we need is substantial personality development, rationality and sacrifices of those stingy ideologies and complains we carry.
Candle march and social media are sympathy exhibitions.
Also, suggestively if criminal is a state of mind caused by augmented aggression then, jail is too lavish of a punishment, these people( who commit heinous crimes) need electric shocks, to obviously pacify that mental stage where they sacrificed being a human.
I guess, it’s time we need a little more than that.
We need to educate ourselves.
Crime shouldn’t be a way and righteous activities shouldn’t be a force.
The bottom line is, we are humans before anything and anyone,
Do we need government to tell us something that basic?
We, claim our freedom rights bestowed upon us by our own Constitution( defined in Part 3, Articles 12 to 35).
We are the land of free.
Essentially, one must not forget,
‘With freedom comes responsibility.’
