Delhi Gate Rape

 

I am weeping uncontrollably here in a small town while seeing the news on the tv channels. Our youth, our future of the country are crying for justice. where are the Leaders, where are the cine actors, where are the cricket idols of this youth, why they are not supporting them? why not even one single news paper took this on editor’s column,   i want to  cut the organ of those bastards.. so we can teach a lesson to the rapists of this country.  our children, our sisters, our mothers do not have safety in this country, while this protest is going on still there so many cases reported in the news papers of this crime in every nook and corner of the country.  where our their idols of these youth of this country/ what are they doing. why they  are not voicing  Yes   but their weapon and hang them nude ….. is the right slogan.    yes yes.. plz  highlight this poster of that young girl of 21 years.

WHERE ARE THE IDOLS OF THIS YOUTH , WHY THEY ARE NOT SUPPORTING THEM IN THEIR  HEART WRENCHING CRY//// WHY THERE IS NO JUSTICE INT HIS COUNTRY.  WHY THIS ANARCHY IN THIS COUNTRY  ? WHY NO MALE LEADERS IS VOICING THEIR OPINON. WHEREA E OUR SO CALLED WOMEN LEASERS OF THIS COUNTRY????

POLICE ARE  THE SUPPORTERS , CHAMCHAS OF THE GOVERNEMNET . IT SO STUPID FOR SHEEL DHISKSHITH TO SAY THAT SHE CANNOT BRING LAW AND ORDER IN THE CAPITAL. .  WHERE IS OUR PRIME MINISTER. WHAT ARE THEY DOING.  ARE THEY SLEEPING AND ARE THEY DYING??

Dear Leelavathi garu
I think you are reacting too much. Language used is also questionable. Govt, Police, Social organisations are doing their job in their limited sphehere. Perhaps they may act more swiftly.
Evil is a reality. What you described is part of the evil. In India alone 100 plus crore people live with the mind sets of their own, their thoughts always hidden. It is wholly impossible to predict what a person would do, next moment. I think majority of the human action are unpridictable. Infact we can see the manifestation of evil in its many forms from times immemorial. Except God no authority on Earth is having full control on human actions. we are living in  a bad world but our God is a good God. So pray God. Have peace.

Dearest Miss,

Just saw your mail.  I am really touched by your concern. It is unfortunate that most people who are supposed to be raising their voices against these inhuman acts across the country are simply silent, or are busy with” their own” work. I really appreciate your efforts in compiling these facts, and passing them on to some people, and above all for making us all conscious of the need to pray. God bless you and your efforts.

Lovingly in Jesus,

Fr Alfonso

Dear  Fr.  Thank you for your letter. Only a few servants ofGod can understand the gravity  of the plight of woman.  Whatever way I am enlightened  in these issues is because of the subject i studied (social work)  and the wonderful seminars I attended in our college  under theGodly Fathers who has devoted thier lives for His service.  Thank you once again        with regards   Leelavathi

I was questioning in myself, how can people be so apathetic  and unconcern about the things that happening around us.  I look at the so called evangelists around me, they are comfort loving people. they do not have empathetic heart,  they do know how to rob people in the name of religion. They cannot rise their voice  against the things that happening unjust fully and bring awareness to the audience that listening  to beautiful stories  on Sundays and other times.. They just love to eat  and make merry.   I see only a very few people who have heart to cry for the people.   I all ways admire monks in the Catholic circles   and among protestants.. Some of them are really Men of God..May God bless you and those some others.

Here I quote the verse from Haggai 1:2     The whole remnant of the people obeyed the voice of the Lord their God and the message of the prophet Haggai, because the Lord their God had sent him.

Wonderful, Because God had sent him, the people obeyed the voice of the Lord…….
I wish One Man of God would arise and speak and make people to pray for this nation.

I know that there are umpteen cases of atrocities taken place around us.  yes there are many … I cried so much when the Graham and his two sons were burnt up in Orissa…. and I made my church women fast and pray along with me.

It may  not change the situation, but our supplications were sent to HIm…. It was the least I can do.
Some times at crucial moments, a single voice can stir a directionless mass of people to action.

The Pastors, only some humble ones have real zeal for God’s work… 99% of them know how to cheat people. how to dance to the tune of the people.
I was under the impression, that God has taken away the curse on woman , which was imparted from Eve.  Because the woman now undergoes Epicure or caesarian operations to avoid the pain of giving birth to the children. So I thought the times are changed and the curse of God is no more on many women at least.  NO NO …. I am wrong.   Just because she is a woman she has o suffer  like this all through her life. right from  the time of concievement.. in the womb of the mother.  Gender inequality stars from the womb, they kill the baby because she is the girl…  till she die she is put to shame….. and has to live in fear… Oh God the curse you put on woman is terrible  Lord….
I was asking many men of God  and searched many commentaries on bible for the meaning of this verse …1Tim  2:15……
And ……..But women  will be saved (restored) through childbearing—   if …….if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety…..
Child bearing… A CHILD IS BORN… A CHILD SHOULD BORN…. IN HER LIFE.. SHE WILL BE SAVED ONLY THEN.  who is this CHILD… THE CHILD JESUS CHRIST.
If yous see the previous verse..  which I did not understand all these years, thereby I did not understand till now.. is… And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. ….
There was question lurking in my heart… how can St Paul said like that… after all God had told Adam and Eve , both of them not to eat the fruit.. both of them ate.. though it was Eve first cheated by the satan.. but both of them were one and the same.. Adam  why he ate, he did know the commandment of God.. I was questioning myself.  I know the MEN would not answer me properly because they understand only one side of the argument. ( most of them)

And now I got the answer, until and unless she is the experience of Jesus the Son , the child is born in her life.. she has no protection in the world.  she has to carry that curse of God in life till she dies.    And what about man and the curse upon him…  The land was cursed because of him?  I have to yet to understand this… … yes yet……need to ask God .. about this…

Well     Life is short so short..  most of the time goes in daily routines, for family commitments, for earning livelihood. Blessed are those who devoted their lives for the work of God , I have great respect for those men and women of God.  My life is wasted so much, nothing I achieved so far…. i am at the end of the life.. how and what I can make use of this little period of my life. God has given me everything, yes everything… but I am living in comfort zone.. licking my bruised conscience  for the loss I had has.. , I really feel ashamed of myself….

The voice of the voiceless

  1. ALAPPUZHA  DEC 22— 17 year girl of kaarithottam in Pathanmthitta district  gave birth to  her father’s baby on May 5th at kottayam Medical college hospital    is preparing for SSLC exam  , realizing that only education can liberate and empower her.
  2. Mumbai  Dec 24—6 year old girl was playing.. near the rapist’s house , and was lured by him to go into the house…. She was raped, she went home and narrated .. the incident,  she was taken to Nagapada hospital  she was not able to urinate due to sexual assault . medical reports confirmed.
  3. Mom I want to live  is the cry of the girl who was gangraped in Delhi in moving bus.  Doctor reported… that the rapists had inserted iron rods and spanners in her genitalia.” We came across so many rape cases every day but this is for the first time that I have seen something so brutal and horrific. He body is completely damaged . she lost most of her intestine.

There are number of paper cuttings before me, I wanted to type their voice here, but I could not, my heart is burning… I cant even read the pathetic stories of these girls… I  feel helpless.. and unhappy.. … so only this much for now…

WHY SILENCE IS NOT ALWAYS GOLDEN.

On one Sunday evening, 20/12/2012  a girl in Delhi Bus was  gang raped and her male companion was  beaten black and blue and both were thrown out of the running bus on the foot path.   There was an uproar through out India, the youth irrespective of sex and religion or caste or region  with one accord and mind protested  the incident  in front of Delhi gate . They were lathi charged and water canons and bombs were used to make them disperse from the place by the police. But the movement went on for 10 days without any break, even the other places like Vizag, Mumbai and other states were affected. As it was going on in these 10 days  there were many many incidents of gang raps were happened, and there was different opinions from the  Leaders of this country.  In the month of November this year in Haryana there were 16 gang raps and nothing was done by  this country to stop these incidents. On the other hand I was  told not to get over reacted, and I should mind my language in this CIVILIZED COUNTRY.  I just collected such incidents from Andhra jyothi and Deccan chronically  for these 10 days, and any one will be surprised  to know such grotesque  incidents happening in this CIVILIZED COUNTRY.  I  wonder how they are defining the word CIVILIZED.   I wept so much and prayed while seeing the youth of this country, especially the girls crying on the roads of Delhi and other cities  begging th country to protect them from the wild animals of this CIVILIZED COUNTRY.  I remembered how I wept and prayed when I heard the news that the Orissa missionary along with his two young sons were burnt in the zeap by they Hindu religious fanatics.    What can I do except praying for them.  I also remembered how every year in USA  the churches pray  and fast for 40 days,  to plead God to stop the Abortions  and also take up Rallies and counseling sessions near  the clinics to stop this grotesque practice in USA. I wonder what happened to our so called pastors and evangelists , not even one of them in this CIVILIZED COUNTRY raised their voice. Not even one of them asked the churches to pray for the young girls of this country. They are such CIVILIZED PEOPLE that they never speak about such things in public.  On the other hand  all the churches started to pray for the Y S JAGAN  to be released from the prison of Chenchulaguda where he is enjoying VIP treatment.  Civilized people , know?!!

–I read the article published in your magazine titled “The Rapist in me”..very carefully. This is the testimony of the People who are saved by His grace. Along with St. Francis of Assisi, I too would reecho my life when I see and work with prostitutes, “That was me , but for the grace of God.” I came to know of Christ in my 22nd year of life. And since then He was protecting me, and helping me to live for him. But I know the gene of crime and stupidity would never leave any one until they go to the grave. Only thing is we have to be careful all through our life. That awareness would be given by Jesus Christ once He comes into our hearts, and change our lives.

The story of the pig after it was cleansed by the queen and perfumed and kept on royal caravan, ends when it jumping into the pit of dirt on its way to the palace. The pig never returned to the roayla chariot, but started to enjoy in the dirt. whereas the lamb when it was treated and had the same experience as the pig, could not stay in the dirt pit but cried aloud to come out of the pit,till it was taken out, and it came out .

The is the shortest parable of sinner and the saved sinner. Yes all of us are the same, we are born culprits, criminals, and rapists and prostitutes. But for the grace of God we live as we do now.
Change of heart comes only from the Saviour which follows clean life.
But what about the non- christians, the responisbilty is upon us to teach them the gospel, which brings them out of the chains of sin. Isaiah cries aloud” Who is there to take the gospel” Unless we preach people perish.””where there is no vision people perish”

But what about the people who live in this Democratic country? where is the law and order? why our legislation is so soft on punishment. If the punishment is not sever there is no use of punishment. there is no use of legislation. If at all there is legislation it should be followed by sever punishment as in the cases of Nirbhaya. The public is the witness. It is a public crime. The culprits are there in front of us, if they are not severely punished the others would not get any warning, or fear to commit such crimes again and again.

I do not recommend the capital punishment, but it should be a mixture of Punitive and Reformatiive. First comes the Punitive punishment, for the sake of the Public. otherwise no girl can live safely in this country.
The Reformation part comes once they are in the jail. There we can go and preach and teach them.

Either we should fast and pray to have such power of the Word as in the case of the Adulteress woman caught by the Pharisees at the time of Jesus.
But for the sake of the ordinary women, girls, mothers and sisters, we need to take the law at stake The fear of the law should prevail in the society. Otherwise there is no meaning in Justice system and courts, and lawyers. there is no meaning of Constitution, amendments, law and order. either it should be with clean chit legislation and sever punishment or just forgive them and let loose them and harm many more girls.

After all it is Men’s society , and they do not loose any thing.

Any crime in the society affects every section of people, irrespective of sex, religion, region, caste , class. But only this crime rape affects the woman. As it is, she has so many problems of her life just because she is a woman. From the ancient history, there are umpteen cases of in -justice, Droupathi, she was made a prostitute by marrying those 5 stupid kings, pandavas, dhuryodhana the rival king tried to molest her right in front of her useless gambling the so called husbands, Keechaka, is another example to play with her life. so is in the case of Dheena the only daughter of Jacob in the Bible, ths son of David Absalom’s brother raped Tamar so the events go in the history. In those days God was the one who took revenge on them. Of course the sons of Jacob too. castration was the biblical punishment given to the men of the whole village where the crime was committed. Even the proverbs warns us without using the cane we cannot discipline the children, of course the Narway case is different in extension.

But there should be a punishment, at it should be of sever one not a candy one, so that the eve teasers and rapist should be afraid to commit an act like that.

First of all No.1 step The Rapists when the public is the witness as in case of Nirbhaya the pusnishment should be sever. chemical castration and 30 years of isolation in seperated cells and jails. As it was in those days of the past Andmans and Nicobar..
2.step. all other suggestions like education, changed of attitude etc are necessary.
3 step The media and TV , Bollywood releases should ban all obscene advirtesments and scenes. The Censor board should be very more powerful with women in the action.
3 step. Night pubs clubs where girls are going should be raided and they should be stopped. by hook or croock. they should not be allowed inside the pubs.
There is difference between dignified dressing and provoking dressing by the girls.or any one. Such dressess cshould be banned . Now a days men are fully dressed than girls. this should be checked. No one should be dressed half nacked.
4step.The male teachers bosses in firms should be signed on a paper that they would not misbehave with female in their work places, lest they would be oosted from the jobs. Ofcourse the misbehave should be supported by the witnesses.
The girls from the very tender age should be given opportunity to express their questionable experiences by drawing , writings etc. and they should be allowed to put them in a “Grievance box ” in every working place, and they should be read by School social worker/counsellor.
This School Socialworker should be appointed oen per 10 schools maximum. they should be female workers. who can work along with two other Social workers or Lady police
