Sandipan Deb writes a thoughtful piece on the government response to the Delhi rape case.
Ajay Shah writes about how we must go from outrage to action, and though I don’t agree with some points (especially that nothing got done in terms of corruption) – I think this is a very important piece for everyone to read and think about. The comments, specially the one that disagrees with the author are very good as well.
Unfortunately, several rape cases have been reported since the Delhi incident, and they are all so gruesome they give you the chills. Hindu has an article on the incidents, and also what various states are doing to combat them. West Bengal will set up 65 all women police stations, of which 10 have already been set up.
I think we have reached a certain point where change is bound to happen, and I feel that this will be change for the good. For far too long we were suffering from a strange kind of apathy which we’re breaking free from today. Not all change is radical, and not all change needs to be radical, any improvement is welcome, and these protests will ensure that there are some improvements in the way the country works.
