It is one more Indian story

Friday, January 06, 2017

The brutal assault and molestation of a woman in Bangalore is, according to the Home Minister of Karnataka, an Indian story. It keeps happening all the time. A video of the grope has surfaced and it shows shocking pictures of the woman being pushed, thrown to the ground as she struggles to free herself. Two men come in a motorbike and grab the helpless woman. She must have experienced great pain. And the minister almost indicated that there is nothing much can be done about it and such incidents are unavoidable. There are other men in our various governments who also share the views of the Home Minister of Karnataka. Samajwadi party's president in Uttar Pradesh referring to a combined rape case said: "Young men once in a way may be like that."

It is a matter of concern that there are men in our governments whose thinking is along these lines. No wonder we see their casual response to a shocking rape case. In the Bangalore rape case, the criminals have at least been caught, but in some cases, they manage to escape. One of the main reasons for criminals to go ahead and commit rape, is the absence of any strict investigation by the police. And then, usually a woman is held responsible: The woman is blamed for going about scantily dressed, venturing into lanes and going out alone. It is the woman quite often and not the criminal that attracts the accusing finger. The fact is a woman is not safe in the country.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)Concentrate on work else you could lose some money through neglect or indifference. Stay clear of fresh proposals and also from those people who are known to give unwanted advice. You are better judge of your condition and take all measures to protect your job or financial interests. At a family gathering you may not like the overtures or attention of a person who is a pest, say so in your own interest. You will not be hurting anyone.
