How things went wrong in India

Updated on May 7, 2015

2012 is a bad bad year, so many people passing away, tragedies occurring and now the victim passed away...
I guess the Mayans were right...it is the end of the civilized world.
If the first thing you hear when you wake up is about the passing away of the girl who was so brutally raped, how are you supposed to react?
Do you feel sad by the demise of a brave girl, who despite this horror wanted to live and fight, or do you feel shame to be a citizen of a country where we worship goddess Durga, Parvati, Saraswati and yet treat girls like toys, something to be played with and then thrown away....or do you feel a weird sense of relief that the poor girl is finally at peace, that she no longer has to bear the pain. There is no human explanation possible to say why this happened to her, for i believe NO ONE should have to go through what she suffered.
We talk about Karma and things like 'she called it on herself by wearing short clothes' or things like that, but I really wonder why her?
Or rather why anyone? At this point i don't think that any punishment for the guilty, whether it be castration or death penalty is good enough.
Nothing can compare the pain or the hardships the victim has faced in the past 2 weeks.
When such things happen i mourn not just the loss of a single life but the loss of dreams, hopes, faith, trust and relationships that any bad thing causes.
But as they say 'the human spirit is so strong that we face challenges, loss, sadness and yet emerge as winners', we don't lose the will to live or to fight.
I'd really want to understand as to what exactly went in the mind of the rapists when they were inflicting such brutality on the girl.
What was it that drove those men to cross the line that divides humans from animals.
Let's not just punish them, let's not just have stricter laws but lets also try to change our thinking, let's try to change ourselves.
Let's all try to be a little more patient, a little more compassionate, a little more tolerant towards every one; for everyone on this earth is fighting a battle of their own.
Let's break down the barriers of caste, religion, color and creed to realize that unless we change, things are not going to change.
Isn't it high time to let go of things we no longer need and things that are holding us back from becoming the best we can?
Love everyone, if that's not possible then at least treat them with respect, treat them the way you would like to be treated, don't teach your children to discriminate based on gender or caste or religion.
For at the end of the day we are all Humans.
