gang rape in New Delhi.

Being a girl living in India made me feel very embarrassed when i came to know about the brutality which happened in the capital city of India on 16th of December at 9.45 pm in a bus. This act of exploitation moved not the hearts of India but people of all over the world and India cannot overcome this crime which is a black spot on Indian pride. India lost not only a girl but a bright student, a doctor who was also a bold and fighter of this country. when i came to know about this inhumane behavior then not i but my heart cried and imagined future of India through this act. where people who can take this country to the zenith and give bright future to country are made silent forever by the beasts of this country and government policies are still realizing that there should be strong law to defend women instead of having it to defend women.
i can say today very frankly that i am safe and alive only because i am hiding myself from these human eaters. The day when i will forget to hide myself, will be my last day on this earth. so girls of this country are dying everyday to live one more day.
so my question is -is it a crime to be a girl?

Shilpi, thank you for having the courage to speak out.

human were categorized on two base that is biological base.male and female and these two different categories have many differences which are biological but both are crucial for each other because male is there because female exist and female is living because male is there. So their identity is only because of other and both reciprocate each other.there is biological system which make them to come closer and even so much close that they have one something which cant be separated from them because both have contributed to make that and that is baby a new living creature.
So naturally both are different but together. It was never decide who is superior and who has to follow but still women are subordinated in each and every thing.who has decided that a woman is made only to cook, to raise child, to be responsible for family, to be in house, to sacrifice her carrier when these things were not decided. why only her reproductive parts are made sensitive , why she is only rapped, why prestige of a family is connected to woman sexuality. is that man do not have it? so this is our society which has determined woman a weaker section between these two. and this predetermined thought is only because men are on all the higher positions who decide and pass law.so woman has to go up to break the chain of determined thoughts.
