Today at the gym I saw a man in a ganji, but I did not feel like ripping off the gangi nor did I have any sexual feelings towards him. He just passed by me we looked at each other gave a smile and that was it.
Then why when a woman wears a ganji, she is supposed to be inviting men on her, she is getting bad thoughts in the man’s mind, she is creating the man to come and touch her, molest her, grab her, and in fact she is the one who is forcing the man to rape her.
Today we all have read about and even seen the video of the girl in Guwahati, who was stripped by a mob of men when getting out of the pub at night. There are continuous tweets on what India we live in, how all are ashamed.
Adding to all this drama Kiran Bedi was on CNN IBN where she quoted “pubs attract hooliganism & violence just as holy places attract peace & devotion. In addition she talked about no’s of pubs that have increased in india, and how woman should not go out at night and how they should be fully clad always.
But Kiranji forgot about the justice to that girl who has assaulted by a group of 30 men who are still not behind bars. Why we don’t talk about our men, their character, their thinking, and their actions. Why don’t we blame that man’s parent for not imparting proper culture in him that he is treating a woman like a sexual object?
If I have a bottle in my hand, wear a short skirt at 12.00 midnight, I am not a slut waiting for someone to pick me up; I am a normal girl, having fun just like any of my other guy friends. Why should I be different, why does my enjoyment need to be curtailed, just because I have a vagina instead of a penis.
I don’t want parents to live in fear just because they have a daughter I want them to be proud, happy, and comfortable with their daughters clothing and occasional parting. And I wish boys are taught to respect woman, treat them equally and fairly.
Next time when you take a boy to a goddess temple explain to him the meaning of that goddess, explain the strength of that goddess, what she stands for, when that boy stands in front of that goddess and joins his hands make him swear that woman should not be humiliated, they should always we treated with dignity.
If god had given the power of giving birth to a woman then surely god must have given the power of destruction to women too, don’t force her to use it.
