Aarushi Talwar - a pretty, smart, bubbly, 14-year-old teenager, and the only daughter of Noida-based dentist couple, Dr. Rajesh and Dr. Nupur Talwar - was shockingly discovered dead, with signs of a blow on her forehead and her throat slit, in her own bedroom on the morning of 16 May 2008. It was also found that their domestic servant, Hemraj aka Yam Prasad Banjade of Nepal, aged 45years, who had been working and staying with them since last eight months, was missing.
RAPE is an obnoxious and alarming four- letter word, a more officious alternative to the layman's version, F..., that every woman is warned about from the time she begins to understand the meaning of words, or sometimes, before that, and which some God-forsaken girls encounter even before they are old enough to understand anything.
I uphold and recommend for all to follow in this Kaliyuga, the role model of Sri Krishna, whose Bhagvadgita gives excellent advice for living as a good human being, without sacrificing oneself unduly and excessively for others, in the name of unrealistic and masochistic social ideals.
It is disturbing to read about the increasing rape cases in our country, especially in the National Capital Region that includes New Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida and Ghaziabad, but more disgusting are the bizarre statements of our politicians who instead of asking for stern punishments for the rapists are coming up with bizarre reasons to curb the menace.
