'Slut Walk' India too is bracing for it

Picuture from Mathrubhumi
The main caption in the picture is telling it. 'Delhi is in rape crisis'.


In 'rape capital' Delhi, 330 cases in 4 months


Unsafe Capital: 212 rape cases in first five months


Gang leader arrested in Delhi rape case
Delhi govt mulls special courts for rape cases




In a single google search, I have managed these many top news on Delhi rape. Then you can imagine the ground reality and the feeling of insecurity the Delhi females are swamped with in and outside their homes.  The situation is so tyrannical that some of them do not feel safe even within the four walls of their homes.

Love in Marriage?

How do you define love in Kerala/ Indian marriage?


Different people, I believe, will answer this question in different ways. However, an ideal answer might be: it is having a sense of belonging, closeness, care, responsibility, accountability, trust, care etc, between the couple.

Sumya's Murder-A thwarted Kerala public

Murder of Saumya raised more uproar than in any similar incidents in Kerala in the recent times because of its shock level.  An innocent and helpless female was subjected to the most brutal violation by a sexual predator who ended her life most tragically and prematurely was something the people could not contain.  One more family lost its breadwinner, its loving and caring daughter and a sister the eulogy went on. That the accused was a severely handicapped male, his left arm was chopped off, reminded that womanhood there is still a sign of weakness and a sex symbol no matter her emerging image as a family supporter and an economic entrepreneur.
