Post-Nirbhaya incident Indian society is still the same
After her horrific rape and eventual tragc death, Nirbhaya, a girl who stood as an example for today's position of women in India, it seemed as if the central government and state governments will make an all-out effort to prevent crime against women. But it seems nothing towards this end has been done - especially in Delhi.

The whole country was deeply moved and extremely shocked by the Nirbhaya gang-rape case in Delhi. But, what I feel is that the situation has become worse instead of being better than before. Rapes, molestation and misbehavior with women continue at an alarming rate. The police still treat complaints from women as if it's always their fault. One hardly finds public servants more careful and disciplined while discharging their public duties.

Neither the compensation to her parents, nor the scrolling headlines or breaking news will bring any change. Change should come in the attitude of individuals. And women should move forward with strong determination and fight against cruelty to the maximum possible extent. In other words, women need to be strong and vigilant at all time and through good leaders push local government to be protective of women.

If the new Bill envisaging protection and more rights for women is passed by both houses of the Indian parliament, it will be a positive step - though execution is still a very big obstacle in giving teeth to laws.
