Her Angle - Should Nirbhaya Turn Up

With a certain law not binding film-maker Leslee Udwin took guaranteed of India's legal laws and went ahead with BBC and NDTV adamant in their own capacity to bring out the documentary.

There are two aspects of this crime, one the victim and other the culprit. India took a deep and effective measure in punishing the offenders but when it comes to overall justice, they are still working at it. The important question how should we go about it. Should we lynch a person's importantly a woman's dignity to harness a justice revolution?

The old movies where the heroes play a dominant and super role to save the women dignity, are the days back. What more horrifying than this. This is not movie. Movies can always challenge the general mindset but in India this is not possible in already a graveyard of plethora of issues, elderly neglect, women rape, gender bias and female feticide. 

We do not argue here for creative expression but tell me how many women are really there, standing by themselves, asking questions, arguing their rights and getting justice. Tell me how many women fight back.

Tell me that Nirbhaya is not different. I will not argue any further.

An exceptional of exceptional case this has been, the woman fought back that even the offenders said, actually might have excused themselves, that if she would not had stopped them, she might had survived. The courage was an exception which also led to revelation of the truth. Her own strength is determining factor in bringing justice to her. No other case of this gravity should happen again is our wish and she definitely represents the wider women rights than most of the right activists can ask for. 

Even if the larger goal remains to bring a mass consciousness about women dignity or learning about the convict's mindset, it cannot be done without giving due respect to Nirbhaya. To discuss and watch every point of view with her angle and any extension of it should be done by expert committees rather than mere journalism.

It is definitely very unprofessional of BBC to undermine the India's legal propriety and in fact, this is much closer to being unethical.

Again the Sky

First published on Literary journal.

Today showered again the sky I wondered if soaking the streets I choose to ignore.
Small leaves sprout and crawl inside me, branches spread out, straws are collected nests are created.
Lone pathway on feet speck of air or earth so full, and my own heart's silence in this moment's time.

What You are - Defining it

When we are jostling with different questions regarding our social behavior for bigger issues such as women empowerment, social life, I ponder why there is such prejudice. Are we responsible? Not the absurdity to look down at any woman with constricted views of household or community values is deriding us of important decisions and self assertion. 

When in society be local or abroad, we confirm to certain beliefs. We carry with us certain traditions which are well respected and if not, can be collaborated with certain evidence that are acknowledged given a case. Certain new theories are often forming and laws are often modified to include the evolving practices anywhere for men and women alike.

Thus, what are these entities. Having an ideology such as Gandhism can help a humanitarian do job anywhere in the world. Confirming to professional etiquette, the diseases are easily diagnosed with exception of long-formed personal habits. Vast experience in certain field or valuable upbringing c…

Least Minimal Good for Better Future

We are out, now. In places, all over city, or country. We often notice when we are outside, how civic amenities are making life feasible. Five years back, it was not the case. There were definite office and public hours. Mobiles made communication possible, yet services were limited. One could not get proper bedding and food at hotels.

Even now, some most popular tourist spots have poor accommodation infrastructure. If the weather would unpredictable, we were often stranded in traffic. Some travel spots were limited to boys/men only. Transport was not superior as now when we can hire a cab to any location.

When the time has changed now, don't we find ourselves pointing out faults in people, system and places. Sometimes pinches us, like sight of garbage, movement of animals, display of election campaigns and ads.

I concur nothing can change by our will but we can change a little that can help inculcate our attitude and expectations from others.

We should contribute a little towards ge…
