Now she was graduating and filled with enthusiasm. She had lots of dreams to come true! Now she faces molestation and such offers to get a job. She does not have any option, but to deny everyone who came with same platter.
“Sattha sudharahin satasangati paa-yee: paarasa parasa kudhaata sohaa-yee
Bidhibasa sujana kusangati paraheen: phani-mani-sama nija guna anusaraheen”
A base metal becomes gold after contact with the alchemist’s stone. In the same way, the company of holy persons transforms wicked persons. And if by chance a holy person falls into bad company, he protects his goodness in the same way the legendary jewel in the snake’s head saves itself from poison.
This was the thing she used to apply in her life. But, unfortunately circumstances make her to forget her own policy of life. She met with some wrong ones and the bad time had just started. All along, she had a companion, but her lifestyle forced her to leave everything behind. There was no friend to take her for outing, not her love to take care of her. People say after death a person can either go to heaven or hell, but she was living - but in hell. She wished someone would have been there to take her out of everything. She wanted to live like a butterfly- symbol of a pure life.
She could not tell anyone what is happening and where she is; not even her own shadow that left her every night in one dark room with a strange life. She missed a lot the one she loved the most in her bad time, but could not do anything. She used to think every day, why he left when she asked him to leave? He could rather find reasons behind her strange and odd behavior. He could have saved her while being with her. But, then instead of blaming him, she blamed her Karma of past life. She did not have much, except those few packets of condoms and contraceptives in her bag. She could have told someone to release her from that pathetic life, but she needs a lot of guts to say it to any person.
She met a person in the journey, who came as an eye opener in her life. She was living in between the clouds and he cleared the fog. She quit that life and gave a new start to her life. Although it was a statement – “you can live a normal life”, but she knows it will take years or rather a whole life to bring back a normal living being. She told me her hardcore experience of life and cried at midnight.
It is true that after facing abnormal incidents in life, no one can become a normal living being again. The person needs moral support more than wishes of his/ her relatives. Surely, there is a way to start a normal life, but abnormality will always follow them till the end.
I have written this post not to entertain my readers, but to understand how difficult the things are, especially when we talk of a girl. The recent incident of gang rape, where six men raped a 23-year-old girl in Delhi and destroyed all her body could be an example.
Things are getting nasty and government is making plans of making India a better country to live. I can’t understand their plans. Why government doesn’t understand that we need a strong law against the crime of female exploitation.
From now on, I don’t support capital punishment; I would rather support impotent punishment. I think it will create a fear and criminals will think a thousand times before committing any such crime. And it is the culprit, not the victim that deserves an abnormal life.
