On the occasion of Gandhi Jayanti, a group of students in Delhi has apparently sent a bunch of roses to the Chief Minister of Delhi with a 'get well soon' note for her response on the death of a lady professional in Delhi.
What else could the citizens possibly do, when their elected representatives respond so irresponsibly to sensitive issues like these?
You are responsible for the safety of your citizens, which you shamelessly agree, you cannot provide. And you don't stop at that, but go ahead to tell people to go hide themselves in their homes soon! To address someone who was just minding her own business as "adventurous" is totally preposterous. An average working woman on the road is not flanked by black cats and security guards, as you are. You could definitely sound a li'l more sensitive than what you just did!
On an offshoot from the topic, I was just wondering how it's always women who react in the most insensitive manner when it comes to atrocities against other women.
Talking of atrocities on women, from rapes to eve-teasing, I've found more women blaming the victimised women on them dressing or behaving provocatively.
No one gives a damn about the perverted minds who commit the crimes.
When it's dowry harassment or dowry death or even a demand for dowry, it's the mother-in-laws who pull the strings more often than not.
Remember Kaushambi who was killed last year in a hotel room? I remember discussing this with a woman colleague then, who just said "Why did she have to go to a hotel with a guy? She deserved this only"
Just because she checked into a hotel with her boyfriend doesn't mean she asked to be killed, right?
Wouldn't life be a li'l better for women, if as women, we could be at the least (forget being sensitive or considerate) fair to the women around us?
