To begin with, I am grateful to a dear friend of mine for bringing this picture in my notice. If she had not sent me this photograph the other day, I wouldn’t have been able to share it here with my worthy readers. So here we have another case registered as a proof for India’s shame. And I must not hold this back- What a shame?!
Last week the hashtag #WakeUpAkhilesh went viral on twitter. But it is not only Akhilesh Yadav who needs to wake up from his deep slumber. According to me it should be modified as #WakeUpAuthorities , #WakeUpPoliticians or to be more accurate as #WakeUpMen ! When will these people understand that women are not a toy to be played with, not an animal to be treated brutally, not an object to be showcased and not even a pet to be tamed. They are human beings who should be loved, respected and treated fairly.
Now coming back to the picture, I would like to share the actual link which my friend sent me. https://www.facebook.com/thekooza/photos/a.112583258894827.20868.101829913303495/320184861467998/?type=1&theater . This time I am not asking you all to have a look at the photograph as such. It is the same shameful scene which I have inserted here in my article. Just scroll down and look at the number of likes this post got. I mean WOW! Such a massive number of people found it worthy enough to be liked. Pity! I marvel at the height of ignorance they possess. What makes them like such an atrocious sight, I wonder. It was meant to be shared with a message addressing the wicked men or the government and not to be liked as if some actress is posing for a photo-shoot. When will India emerge as a safe nation for women is a question which still persists and will not perish until and unless some strict actions are taken to stop these heinous crimes.
Okay, one more time scroll up to look at the image. Noticed anything? Oh yes! I am talking about the character I circled there in red ink. Bhaisahab ko photo lene ki padi hai. Disgusting, isn’t it? This is where I think twice before saying – “I am proud of my country.” Instead of helping this woman by raising his voice in her favor, he is busy clicking pictures so that he can show the clicks to his friends and boast about being the ‘macho-man’ to be present at the site – LIVE! Thik hai bhaiya, jaisi aapki marzi. But don’t forget to mention that you were such a big coward who couldn’t help a victim of sexual assault. You were busy there watching the ‘tamasha’ and took pictures for free. And let me clear your misconception. Standing like a dummy and watching the unfair doesn’t makes you something like macho- man. Your endeavors to stand for the right makes you a real man in all perspectives.
So, in nutshell, we do not require a big revolution to alleviate India’s shame. We just need some small yet helpful steps to elevate its fame!
