U call it rape...I call it sexual terror!!

Whiling away time, scrolling the Facebook on my so called smartphone, I came across a news flash. "Three women kidnap and rape a 23 year old man for 3 days and then dump him naked to die." It was in a foreign land.

My first reaction...I laughed, to be very honest. "Serves them right..to be served with the taste of their own medicine!!" mumbled the feminist in me. Quite often, we hear about the heinous crime of girl molestation. The society cringes. Huh, Its India fights back these days. Still the poor victim bears the trauma. But then there is always this social strata who gets up to comment ,"Why was she wearing a short dress to invite male attention? Was she drunk or why partying soo late at night? Copy the West and pay." Will the molested boy ever be asked about the length of his shorts or if he was drunk or was attracting female attention? No, he was a B..O..Y. Well ,well our very own Priyanka Chopra has to measure the length of her skirt before meeting Modiji on an international platform. Her skirt ironically speaks louder than her work. Come on people, dresses don't define Indian-ness. Our actions do. Suna tha...padhega India to hee to badhega India.. Today I feel like completing the adage..."padhega India to hee badhega India...dimaag ke keede hatao deshvasiyo, nahi to sirf sadhega India."  

Traumatized, the boy might be, but he' ll move on, the human side in me raved. But was I sure, he ll live with it? Does merely being a boy ensure that you are above all victimization?  Often people tell me," Life is easy being a son 's Mom. Beti ki Suraksha zimmadari hai." Don't be judgemental people. Aapki beti ki Suraksha meri zimmadari hai.. I have on me the onus of ensuring the safety of all females in my son 's surrounding vicinity. "My son can't do it approach" won't help. Peer pressure, power dominance or even carnal desire might spill the can of worms out. And today this news flash increased my stress. Now, I need to safeguard even my son from the risk of molestation as well. Recently, I heard about the third standard boys being taught "mast mast bation"  by some rugged seniors in a very reputed school. Parents raved n ranted but then what? A 8 year old boy lost his life in fear of being molested by his gay cook during the office hours of the parents. Atleast, India hears the NIRBHAYA...the NIRBHAY are not even heard well..ladka hai na,to kya? India needs to take up complaints of male molestation and domestic violence seriously as well.

Today, as I write on this platform I am no feminist or even a supporter of male dominance. I speak as a mother on behalf of all mothers. Our hearts bleed to see our kids sexually terrorized irrespective of their genders. CHANGE is needed. The mindset starts spreading at a very tender age. Let the boys cry, why not? Let the girls repair flat tyres, why not? Let them both help in the housework, why not? These are life skills so why complicate them with equality issues? Let the kids grow in an environment full of love ,respect and equality. Pati is no Parmeshwar and patni no Savitri. They are partners in marital bondage.

  •   Where respect becomes the norm, rape culture will surely get eliminated. 
  • Teach them the parameters of physical touch.
  • Teach them to provide for their own safety.
  • Take a plunge. Be ready to help if needed. Stand up for humanity. 
  • Remember love is a beauty and molestation is slutty.                              Our kids deserve a safe future and wise parenting can lead to it. So let's join our hands and pave a way to a safe India_safety for all kids. Let's give each other tips and become a guiding force to clean the environment.  "Aisey karega to hee achey se badhega hamara India."
