Think India Think!

I picked up the newspaper today as a daily routine. After reading first few pages when I flipped and halted on one page, not one but two news caught my attention. Such news are not new but when they make an appearance, it brings back the wave of disgust, irritation, loathe and pity to a particular section of the society.

Now to be more precise, those couple of news were about Rape; one teenage girl has been gang-raped and one photojournalist has also got raped. I have scribbled few more posts on Rape previously on my blog but as sky has no end, these rape cases too appear alike. Today again, if I dare to strain more on this Rape issue, I feel like demanding the actions on 'Where is the benefit of those protests and arson after the horrible incident of Nirbhaya (On Dec. 16th 2012)?' 'Are they dead, like Nirbhaya herself?' 'Have our laws, policemen, political figures and all the supreme authorities have chucked their conscience out of this world?' These questions may sound like a broken unusable straw in the heap of waste but these questions DO seek attention, regardless where we are and what we do!

Lately I read that Indian Juvenile Court has decided to treat the lead miscreant in Nirbhaya case, the alleged juvenile, as a minor but not as an adult. The court has punished him with measly three years of imprisonment. That means, an animal will be again free after three years to crush and crumble girls under the brutal acts of his mind. I sighed. I neither cursed nor got agitated. I just sighed. What else I could do? When the law has already abandoned the helm of justice then what can we do with holding the edge of those protests, rallies and crowd show-ups? They go in vain. It is not like India doesn't have an international example of a case when two juveniles got treated as adults in the court when they ended up torturing and murdering a toddler. This incident is true. It happened in Britain in 1993. Two juveniles, named Jon Venables and Robert Thompson, were found guilty of extreme tormenting and murdering of a toddler named James Bulger. The severity of crime was so devastating that Britain court decided to treat those juveniles as adults.

WHEN A JUVENILE COMMITS TO AN ADULT CRIME, WHY ON EARTH HE CAN NOT BE PUNISHED AS ONE? WHY HIS ACTIONS FAIL TO FIND NO GROUND OF NATIONAL SOLIDARITY ON LAW AND OTHER CONCERNED ACTS?

Not the girls but something better!!

Do you have what it takes to face such questions? No. No one but THE LAW. If Juvenile Courts have come in existence, they must live up to people's expectations, hopes and prayers. India can only prove itself a worthy helmsman of its countrymen when it will realize that its true power lies in Youth and the Youth section is also comprised of Females.

After all, the sky too has a limit. It ends where our planet's atmosphere ends. Think India Think!
