Preserving the dignity of a child and a womanNot a day goes by without hearing or reading the unthinkable cowardly acts (carried out by pathetic excuses for human beings) in which children and women are the victims. Once we read this a flash of anger or a sense of sadness prevails most of us and many of us feel we should do something.
There would be many reasons behind these dastardly acts but what can the society do? We all know that law takes its own course in a tolerant country like India. Many of us feel we are facing an "epidemic of these crimes". What would be the immediate measures that we can ask for or enforce ourselves in our schools, cities, and neighborhoods to safeguard our children and women?
Should there be stringent expedite law measures, should there be a punishment so severe that the predators would have to think many times before they commit such crimes. Should there be capital punishment for a couple of years and then decide.
