But why does the public remain silent? What is it that holds back the egos of males? Is it that they feel that such depredations are 'natural' and women should be objects of lust, and desire, or are they commodities with whom males can involve themselves with lustful actions - and that too in public glare? Is it a tacit approval by a morality which is sex-centred, or for that matter, immorality? Why is it that in India male/ female relationships cannot be understood as a means to healthy friendships? Unless this kind of totally misconstrued and bizarre thinking goes, females will always be considered as objects of lust, sexual greed and desire. It also points to the hypocrisy in our societies, on the one hand we seem to be visibly embarrassed to introduce sex education in the curriculum, but on the other hand we are a party to the worst forms of aberrant and bestial behaviour.
One incident will soon be forgotten but such an incident is a testimony to a total breakdown of morality and the law and order machinery in our societies. This moral breakdown and depravity is a viscious cycle. One episode takes place in one part of the country, and it is repeated shamelessly in other parts. And the worst part is people become silent witnesses. What kind of moral turpitude is this? This is sheer animality as worse as those beasts who have perpetrated it.
The "India Against Corruption" movement should seriously think of putting this in their agenda if they have a conscience. Everything does not revolve around money. It is also strongly associated with another lustful gain-sex and its most barbaric faces.
All I can say is shame, shame to the point of infinity. It is a slur on the nation.
