Reports of Violence Against Women in India is on the rise in India. A few months ago, i was myself surprised that India ranked 4th in the list of most dangerous places for women to be in. Thats when i started looking into reports and realised that there was no credible source of Information that was tracking this in India and decided to put up my own Ushahidi Deployment to do the same. 2 Months now and i am thinking why arent we the Worst Place for Women to be in. Why #4? We definitely deserve to be on the top in this one. What is worse still is the silence on part of most Indians who were so vocal in their Support for the Anti-Graft Movement that took India by Storm. Systematical destruction of Women and their very essence is not a grave issue to be taken up at a national level? Maybe not and that again is a mentality that most Indians are already aware of and even Practice – “Women are replaceable” . This attitude runs in the blood of many whom i have met personally and it does not need a crisis map or a full fledged media campaign to notice this. Just look around your house and you will soon notice that right there.
Today’s Shocker is how a 50 yr old drunk bastard forced himself upon a 8 month old baby in Rajasthan, India.. One Wonders if humanity still exists. An 8 month old baby!! According to Census 2011, Rajasthan has 883 girls between the age of 0-6 for every 1,000 boys. The child sex ratio in 2001 was 909.
