    Sense of belonging and sense of responsibilty must be fed into the minds of people, starting from early childhood. For example, we cannot expect a child sitting on the pertol tank of his dad's two wheeler, while dad rides along merrily without a helmet, weaving in and out of traffic, jumping red lights and also occasionally allowing sonny to hold the handle bar, to grow up into a responsible road user, can we?

    Delhi Gangrape victim passed away in Singapore. Gang-rape victim dies, PM says death won't go in vain - Yahoo! News India
    Shame to Indian society. Still people are in routine verbal gymnastics " We will make sure......", "This kind of incidents ....." bla bla bla
    It is the time to act not to preach.

    All media should compulsorily telecast the campaign about stopping atrocities against women. It is very much needed than anything in this country. Otherwise there is no meaning for the freedom that we got. Till then all Indians should be ashamed to call them as human.

    "passed away peacefully at 4.45 a.m. (2.15 IST)," is what the article reads. Peacefully??? Wake up people. :A :A

    Indian burocracy is insensitive & cruel.
    Because of late justice,criminals dare to do offence.

    Bloody hell 'Taarikh Par Taarikh'

    Whole 'system' is corrupted. Law is never weak.
    Because of Indian burocracy law is weak & helpless.
    Sometime I feel sad coz I am also part of this bloody hell 'system'

    I am very sorry to say the following, but it is just the reality that is looming large into the future.

    Today and always rape is a crime, but it is not too far that one can see this happening more even if the law is very stringent . How many of us are aware of the dangerously skewed sex ratio of the country?. In some states it has dipped to 800 females to a 1000 males and it is continuing inspite of the govt clamping down on sex selection. The first crime against the females is female infanticide and sex selection. Can we blame all the ills on the illiterate population.? No. We need to look deeper. Do we need to think hard to find out where will the deficit 200 men go and find their mates? It is a shuddering future. Things that we have brought it upon ourselves

    Laws, police, bureaucrats, govt ,are only facilitators of societal life, but we as people need to introspect and see if we are doing the right thing on a day to day basis and if our contribution to the society is negative or positive or at least neutral.

    Corruption has penetrated into all walks of life including media in India; we heard reports of extortion indulged by reporters of famous media house. The entire Indian electronic media are more concerned with TRP than anything else; none of the channels is exceptional. On the day of counting of votes polled in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh elections, all the TV channels covered it non-stop without bothering to report other news; none bothered to even mention the Delhi rape case. One day before and after, they started covering the news pertaining to Delhi rape case prominently.

    Very valid point by Abdulji. The root cause starts from there. TN government had come up with school fee waver for one single girl child, a very positive signal. But that much is not enough. If media can influence our life style why can the same media influence our social attitude, the attitude towards women.
    As Ravi sir told media has completely turned in to business entities. They look for profit maximum viewership etc etc.

    Look at the state of indian movie. What is the role of women. Women is just a object for sexual satisfaction of men. How many of the movies are oriented towards women.
    May be we will see very rare like Satyajit ray. Films are one major culprit for the disrespect towards women. Leave the rape I don't think there won't be a single girl child who use public transport for school/college who hasn't experienced eve teasing whether it is Delhi or Trivandrum. How much of mental tension they have to tolerate.It is not impossible to stop but need a will power of the each and every one in society.

    Most movie threads are nothing but glorification of male domination. That is why they all contain at least one scene where the hero slaps the heroine and the entire crowd applaud...More than movies or any other thing, it is the inefficiency of the legal machinery that contributes to the increasing crime rates in the country. Law takes its own sweet time to prove the accused guilty or otherwise. Result- do any crime and anyone can getaway with it if he has good lawyer to support! It is this lack of fear in the judicial system that makes their numbers thrive.

    They say this particular case will be tried and punished in two months time. Judging by the way legal procedings go in India, no one can predict it future.
    The first priority of the govts has always been not to punish the accused, but to save their own face. How they do it, let's wait and see!
