Being an Indian , a female , and more than that ,a human , I would like to bring forth the recent issue of the "horrifying gangrape" of a 23 year old Indian girl.

    I request you all , as responsible and concerned individuals, to come up and give your opinion about this issue and how it should be dealt with. What kind of punishment you feel will be best for those 6 men ? I felt Open Study is a good platform to discuss this issue , not only because there are people from different cultures and nationality , but also because Open Study is all about learning and imparting education. And friends, education is not just about mugging up formulas , equations , birth dates and death dates of rulers , analyzing investments etc , but also about behaving in a civilized manner ( retaining some humanity in your very soul). Education is about the freedom to express your views , dress up the way you like , and live the way you want. So please speak up !!!!!

    But do you really think that life imprisonment will act as a strong deterrent to prevent such cases in the future ? Well I do not agree with you. In India , men are casual and easy going with such issues ; they commit such crimes because they have no fear of the law and they have this notion of getting away with it easily. Superficially , life imprisonment sounds good , as death penalty is for once and gives "momentary pain" but life imprisonment makes the culprit suffer each day , each second. However , life imprisonment also increases the scope of getting out of the jail somewhere in the future; in a country like India , where rape is a bailable offense , I dont think it would be a very difficult thing to do. The strictest punishment in India is "death penalty". And for such a gruesome act , the Indian govt is still not sure whether to give a death sentence or not . Very disappointing. The young girl is battling for her life in Safdarjung hospital , New Delhi. Her intestines have been removed and doctors have said that she will never be able to digest food in the future , "if she survives" . The next 10 days are still very crucial for her. She has been on and off the ventilator , and is speaking via writing/actions. She is enduring this pain for what ? For being a girl ? The issue today is much more than a " rape " ; its about the increasing domination of the "patriarchal" society , the rising trend of gangrape ( united we stand , divided we fall attitude ), the "fear free" attitude of the mass and an "unsafe" society. This incidence took place on Sunday night , and the very next morning , a 3 year old girl was sexually assaulted by her teacher. Horrendous ! Eve teasing is a daily routine , and rapes have become a culture these days. Last year India recorded a total of 600 rapes. But I believe there would be many more , since many go unnoticed and unrecorded because of the social pressure. When such cases become rampant , and govt fails to take any stringent measure , I believe the best way is to leave the culprits in the hands of the public. India witnesses honour killing , sex selective abortions , women oppression in work field , and on top of that "rapes".Enough. I believe this incidence is a wake up call for the Indian govt. A revolution has to come.Now or never.

    Its my sincere request to @Preetha , CEO OS , who is an Indian herself , to please express her views on this horrendous act . Mam your words matter a lot . Also I request @cshalvey and other administrators to please come forward . India has witnessed a great outrage from media , general public , ngo , ministers. And along with them , facebook and twitter , have played an essential role in condemning this act and in supporting the victim. So why OS is behind ?

    @Hr.Tboy , do you even know what you are talking about ? Today that 23 year old is suffering because when "trillions" of girls were raped no one took stringent measures. She battling for life , and even if she survives , she will be nothing more than a living corpse. And you call it a ridiculous discussion ! Hopeless !

But I guess you are not aware about the present scenario of this case in India .The nation has been united , and all have come out on the street. It feels great to see that humanity still prevails in India.

    Ok you must be aware , but what I want to say is that , as far as I know this country , I dont think life imprisonment will fetch anything. There should be nothing less than a death sentence. And yes if Indian govt can add something to that , I'll be more than glad.

    @Krishnadas I know , although Kerela is ahead in literacy rates , actual "literacy" is way behind. Really sad ! I hope atleast this sometime something happens. Yes even I agree that death sentence is nothing. But then the worst kind of punishment that Indian govt offers is "death sentence" , so no other option. You know I read Salman Khan 's opinion about this , and he said ,that if law permits , the culprits must be beaten till death. I hope somewhere in future , this kind of law comes into action.

    @yololol , sorry for late reply . This is not as such a "feedback" thing. Its about what one feels when such cases happen. Iam not saying that such cases never happened in any other country , they do. Infact it happens everywhere. But in India , this issue has raised questions , firstly because , it was a "gruesome" act , and secondly because time and again , these things have happened , but no stringent measures were taken. The guts of people have increased , and so have the cases .Its high time for India . But this is not just about a "rape case" in India . Its about the deterioration in values . Humanity no longer prevails in this world. This post , is a tribute , from my side , from you all , to that courageous lady , who is fighting for her life , telling her parents that she wants to live. I hope you all will support this cause.
