A normal life with abnormality

I remember an incident happened to my known when she was around 10.  She lived in a joint family and had cousins of her age group. It was a day when no adult was at home and she was with her cousins including seven sisters and eight brothers. One of her male cousins tried on her, but fortunately, she escaped and saved herself. She did not tell anyone in his family or you can say she could not. Not because she was afraid of him, but she was too small to understand what had happened to her in actual.

Time was passing, years were making her grow, and she started understanding the things related to the life. She was now aware of the incident happened to her. A kid was become a part of an abuse when she was just 10. She could never forget the incident and did not forgive the culprit!

Later, she was in her graduation period. A young girl who is having lots of dreams to come true! She was then faced molestation and such offers to get a job. She does not have any option, but to deny everyone who came with same platter.

There was the news of rape case in the past week, in which 4 people have done gang rape with a working woman. She was returning to the home and they drag her in their car on the Delhi-Gurgaon expressway. Now the question arises- who is responsible for the incident? The girl, who was going back to her home after completing her work in the office or the police, who believe that rape incidents are depend on the timings. It is appalling how Gurgaon police drawn a statement to prevent rape cases- “Women should not work after 8 pm to avoid rape.”  According to this statement, women are safer in the daytime. Is that so? I don’t know why police don’t accept their flaws and help women by giving them protection.
