Am I secured??

Yes, I am a girl. I don't have any fault of me being a girl instead I am proud to be a Girl.
But, am I secured? Can I walk out there in the road alone? Can I stay out late at night? Can I wear the clothes I want?
No. I can't. Why? Because, I am a girl and you know, a girl has this danger, every second of her life of being raped. C'mon, how can anyone rape a girl? Oh, not how, why? Are we dolls, that you wanted to play, so you just pick it up, play and throw. We are human. Don't you know what's like being a girl? You always have this fear of being raped. You dont want to hear or read news because you read these big headings of this and that girl being raped. you scare of going out alone, late at night. We are equally human like any guys.

Yes, we are humans too

Hello,

You have pinpoint a very basic issue that we face everyday-About our safety. Are we safe even in our homes, let alone streets? People need to get a better and wider perspective. They need to understand a very basic point- we are humans too with feelings and emotions. We need our freedom too, to just about do anything that we want to and are capable of.

Thank you for sharing your views.

Much love,

Mukut Ray
