Why Rape happens here ? Ask these leaders

Our country is a democratic nation, we all know. We elect our representatives so that they can serve us and can fight for our problems. However, after successfully contesting the election, no one hears back. Our own representative plays with laws and regulation. And they even don’t bother to pass their verdicts over different sensitive matters. One such matter is “Why Rape?”
The recording of crimes against women in India, including rape, domestic violence, and abuse, has taken a rise in last few years, partly because more women are contacting police. Women are becoming more vocal and more open when it comes to reporting abuses against them. However, women in India are still resistant to report sexual assaults because they have been repeatedly told that rape is a woman’s fault, by our leaders. These political leaders who are supposed to understand the gravity and support victim, take dearth of action and deliver the most stupid statements on the issue.
 Take a look at some of our country’s leaders who have enlightened the society with giving these ridiculous reasons behind rapes and molestation:

The recent one
  • The more the nudity, the more a girl is considered fashionable. Ants will swarm the place where sugar is.
        By Abu Azmi, Samaj wadi Party Leader

Boys are allowed make fun this way?
  • Should rape cases lead to hanging? Boys are boys, they make mistakes
        By Mulayam Singh Yadav, Samaj wadi Party Leader

This one is from a woman itself. Is she not working with MEN in her party?
  • Rapes happen because men and women interact freely.
         By Mamata Banerjee, West Bengal Chief Minister

Again from a woman. She used to be the CM of rape capital of our country.
  • All by herself till 3 am in a city where people believe... you know... you should not be so adventurous.
        By Sheila Dikshit, former Delhi Chief Minister

Many other shameful and nonsensical
  • Rapes take place in cities and not in villages. Such incidents happen due to the influence of western culture and women wearing less.
         By Mohan Bhagwat, Chief, Rashtriya Swayamsewak Sangh (RSS)
  • Child marriage is a solution to rape and other atrocities against women.
          By Om Prakash Chautala, Former Haryana Chief Minister
  • Rape is a social crime which depends on the man and the woman. It is sometimes right and sometimes wrong
        By Babulal Gaur, Bharatiya Janata Party leader

  • Just because the country attained independence at midnight, is it proper for women moving at midnight?
        By Botsa Satyanarayana, Andhra Pradesh Congress leader, commenting on the Delhi gang rape
  • I have no hesitation in saying that about 90 percent of the girls consensually go with men and become targets of rape.
         By Dharamveer Goyat, Hisar Congress, when asked about the rising number of rape cases in Haryana
  • Our party MP, Meenakshi Natrajan, is a Gandhian, simple and an honest leader.I am a seasoned smith of politics. Meenakshi sau tunch maal hai.
         By Digvijaya Singh, Congress leader
  • Like a new victory, a new marriage has its own importance, but as time passes, like the victory, a wife loses her charm.
         By Sriprakash Jaiswal, former Coal Minister, Congress

I find it the most foolish comments when a khap panchayat in Haryana's Jind district had blamed consumption of chowmein behind the growing incidents of rapes with saying it leads to hormonal imbalance. There is certainly a hormonal imbalance in the minds of these so-called people representatives when instead of taking action for establishing law and order, they pass these mindless comments. I can’t say but this could be their own analysis about the matter. But whatever it is, a case study or a research, it is a slap on our much-debated culture where it is said that “Women are honored where, divinity blossoms there”.“यत्र ना्यरस्तुपूज्यन्ते रमन्ते तत्र देवता”

#TheWomanThatIAm #RRxMM I am not the woman who..

I am not the mother who..
I am not the mother who stayed longer with her newborn, I resumed office when he was barely 2 months old. I am not the mother who witnessed each of my kid's milestones, I got to know them when being told. I am not the mother who could tell breastfeeding stories, my child is a formula-fed gold. I am not the mother who keeps the house spotless, I let my son scatter toys and go overbold. I am not the mother who manages a detailed list for parenting chores, I often keep my to-dos on hold. I am not the mother whom people admire, I hear people calling me selfish and cold.
ALSO I am a doting mother who tries to juggle between family and work every other minute.  I am a mother who watches silly cartoons with my boy.  I am a mother who repeatedly tells the same story every night.  I am a mother who cooks my son's favorite food every week.  And I am also a mother who is the closest person in my son's life!
I am not the wife who..

My 'Invisible' Accomplishments #DecadeHop #RRxMM

As we entered 2020, through this post I am trying to contemplate the coolest, most daring, and most significant feats of my life during the last decade. Now the more I regress my memory, the more I feel there are two types of achievements or accomplishments that I can ponder upon; Visible and Invisible. Visible ones are those that I can count on my finger like a parrot and others can nod also. I got specs on, married to a not-so-romantic man, produced a baby, started writing and added good 17 kgs in my body volume (I was 50 in 2011). However, there are many invisible accomplishments too that either I know silently or very few can assert.

From 2011 to 2019, Who am I now

From a coy soul to now an outspoken woman, the trek was not easy. I achieved it. From being a no-makeup girl to now a lipstick swatches observer, the transition was tough. But it happened. And from being a sweet hater to now a sweet lover, the change was mysterious yet occurred. And now I can die for Gulab Jamuns. And I…

My Monsoon Love Hate Love Story

Last year, almost the same time, I packed every belonging of mine and landed to a place which is close to my heart. With bag and baggage, my family moved from Delhi to Lucknow. It was monsoon time when I came here and thank god I witnessed a prosperous rain. Lucknow, though smaller compared to Delhi, is a place I distinguish since childhood. The city of Nawabs is believed as the happiest city in India. As our move was well calculated, my husband and I made sure to have all those things in our lives that I missed being in Delhi. A bigger house (that we can afford), green surroundings, street food access that we missed in Delhi and people who talk in our native tongue.

The Hate Story

I hated the rain when I was in Delhi. My house was in a busy lane of a crowded Delhi locality, and I was living on the second floor of the building. Hence neither I had easy access to the road, nor to terrace. When it rained, I was forced to stay inside. Roads used to get sunk even after the rain of half an…
