could it be any more shameful???



just read this article in "THE NEW YORK TIMES"

NEW DELHI — A young woman in West Bengal was gang-raped this week on the order of a village council, to punish her for planning to marry a man from outside the village, according to the Indian police.

Couple was ordered to pay fines totaling 27,000 rupees, or about $442, Mr. Yadav said in a telephone interview. Mr. Sheikh paid his portion and was allowed to leave, but when the young woman’s family refused to pay, Mr. Mardi ordered villagers “to enjoy her,” said a police officer who spoke on condition that he not be named.
She was then raped repeatedly in Mr. Mardi’s mud-and-thatch hut.

Local politicians sometimes react angrily to the publicity given to rape cases, which they believe reflect badly on their administration. The chief minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee, lashed out at rape victims last year, saying in one case that a victim was lying, even though the police found evidence supporting the victim’s account.

Times of India -
Even as the administration claimed it had acted promptly, more gruesome details emerged. Villagers told TOI on Thursday that after the kangaroo court ordered her to be sexually savaged, the woman was placed on a raised bamboo platform so that the gang-rape was viewed by the entire village, children included.

I know women are being treated in worst of the ways in so many other countries, but i can't believe it could happen anywhere else... 
the place where Women were treated as Goddess,(yes,  "were" because even respecting them is just so  fake these days)
an elder in village... a village where all the people are like family... someone telling guys-to go, enjoy her( it is still written in a decent way i guess )

the elderly person may be mentally retarded or something, but what about all the other people? They did that???

And the reason- they found her in some objectionable situation...how would they define her situation after the incident???

First of all its her personal matter, let her family decide.
May be they were really into each other... but no... why bother?
They are to decide na?

They say the girl must not marry outside the community... which must have started just to ensure her safety. Marrying her to someone you know, so that she didn't find it that difficult to adjust to her new home.
But who cares?

Being in Love with some guy, from other community is polluting the minds of youngsters.
So what would they call this decision???

And i am blabbering again :)

Looking at yourself, have you ever felt like, this is not what you wanted to be. Like ever. And here you are standing in front of the mirror, looking at your face, thinking - is this really me now? Do i have to cope with this person like forever?
Can I like exchange somewhere?


Looking at the kids around, they have so much on their mind, they have hopes, dreams. They also look at the movie stars/celebrities and hope that they would live lives like them. Their on screen characters leave a mark on our just-blossomed hearts and minds.
What we do not know till then is  that the biggest fight, disappointment, inspiration they will get from themselves.


I have always wanted to be the free spirit person, living my life on my terms, not caring about anyone around, their opinions. I thought i would draft a new bucket list every year and complete it all up by November, so that i can think about more and more. And get over with all the crazy, stupid stuff by the End of this life. And what am i doing?…

Something new....

Aaah.... Guess what today i thought about several things that i want to share with you people... But i realized this needs a break...

There must be something worth writing... ;p

Was reading a novel-
In between some arguement
And the hero asks heroine- what do you want me to do?

Her reply- "i don't know".


And i wasn't able to stop myself.... I was laughing out aloud....
Truely said-how could a guy understand what his girl wants..when she herself has got no idea....
Funny but true..
Well if some guy writes this on his facebook wall...i will be so-so angry... I may even shout....what the hell these guys think...

Hehe
But i know its true...i mean...we girls always know what the other person expects... What we should do...

But we are seldomly sure about what we want...
;) may be because...since early days of our lives....we keep everyone else before us....so have lost contact with ourselves...
;)

Love,jags

just a thought...

I guess the best thing i learned till today...is that - if you feel bad...you have a war going on inside your head, you are not sure about the next step you will take...or where your life is going...where you will be , the very next day...or a week later or what you will do...So what if sometimes you feel that things are wrong...nothing is working out the way you suggested... still you will be fine...You will live by all this... many-many similar days are waiting for you...Big dreams and even bigger problems are being positioned by the almighty , just to add a little adventure...But you will live ...It will all be fine in the end...
Just be yourself...and see how beautiful a person you are... Just smile...may be just to practice it...
Because even if...today your smile is a little tired and sad...tomorrow it will be happy...real and satisfying... Life is not about a moment...or a day...or a week...not even a year... Its about the whole...its about you... :)
