People write diaries. Their diaries describe their personality. I write on my blog. It describes me way too well. :D
My writing takes me places my mind never wanted to go
Everyone writes. From the ink of their thoughts, by the pen of their mind on the page of their face. Everyone writes.I love to write. It is a passion; a compulsion; something that gives me an avenue to express myself. I write when I am happy; when I am sad or when an issue touches my heart. I find inspiration to write in every aspect of life.
This blog is dedicated to anything and everything that fills my thoughts and occupies cranial space

Justice Served

Damini would rest in peace now. And I am not happy for her alone. But for many others too who faced the same end. Finally the fumes used by criminals and politicians alike to ignite our patience have turned into flames.

I wish that any further appeal to High Court or Supreme Court is rejected on all grounds buts that not possible I know. I wish there is no provision for mercy petition to The President in this particular matter but even thats not possible I know.

The so called leaders and the pillars of the judicial system have realized at last that if the people continue to be tested & feel agitated this way, then they won't be able to stand ground any longer. This decision , taken under any political pressure or otherwise , has proven that no matter how bad the shape of our democracy is, we still rule.

Will this decision be a deterrent to injustice against women ?

Will it call for a change in the order of our patriarchal society?

Honestly speaking , I don't know. But here's hope to the rise of a new era and a new country where women are respected. This is not just exemplary justice , or a mere exhibition. This is an inkling into what the power of people is capable of. The legislation has to bend to our will & deliver now.

But at the same time there are still many people blaming the girl section of the society only. a recent example of this is the Delhi gangrape and murder case defense lawyer's views about the victim, "Why don't people first control their daughters? I'd burn my daughter alive if she was having pre-marital sex,roaming around with her boyfriend at night" 
I'm not sure how safe is his daughter in his home.
