Do our societal nature make our women unsafe?A recent survey by Thomson Reuters Foundation ranked India as most dangerous country for women in the world. The same foundation previously mentioned that in India, 90 percent of crimes against women are committed by people known to the victims.
We are brought up in such a way that we should be very cordial to neighbours, relatives, friends, etc. Our parents taught us like that. But the crimes are happening through these people only. Indians give least preference to privacy. They share their mobile numbers very easily. They even invite strangers to their homes if they ask for some address in their locality. Friends and neighbours will be very frequent in our homes. Is it time to rethink about our approach? Should we be more private in future?
