It is the first rain of summer in Kolkata today. The streets are empty and the colored flags all over. It is the season of election here. The silence of the city is not alone today, the mother of Jisha has the silence too. One is of joy and another one is of death.
Jisha, a 30-years old law student of Kerala is being brutally murdered and raped. Her body has more than 30 injuries and mostly in the private parts. Kerala government was not pro-active before the hashtag #JusticeforJisha started trending on social media. While the government becomes active then the politicians became pro-active. Political party members have already started visiting the victim’s house.
Who has killed Jisha? We have killed her. When India is busy with the debate of Bharat Mata then a dalit student gets raped and murder. If we don’t have the ability to give protection to a citizen then what is the need of chanting slogans for nation? Yes we are proud of our nation but first we should learn to do some social responsibility. Women are not safe in India. Why is it so? Every body has some ide about it but never functions.
Today we are in a situation when, we should rethink about our nation. What is wrong with us? 30-injuries in a body? We have to understand that more than politics, caste and religion what we need is a proper society. If we are thinking today that these things are not related then we are wring. Everything has an effect on society and psychology. Brutality is becoming horrifying day by day. The human psychology has reached a different level.
Jisha is an example of failure. Justice for Jisha is not punishment of the accused but a self valuation. You don’t know what has happened with her can happen in to your family. Rape and brutality can’t be explained in simple words. We have to change way of thinking. It is high time to open up about sex and sexuality. The more you will hide sex and portray it as something sin the more rapes will increase. If everyone of us start talking about sex as any other natural thing in this world then sex will not be a taboo.
India is world’s greatest democracy and the Parliament of this democracy decided to hide a documentary where a rapist has talked. What are you hiding? Talking about brutality should be hiding when every day India witnesses rapes, this a hypocrisy. Nationalism is needed but what more needed is to know respecting each other. If we learn to we will learn to respect nation too. Jisha is as important as Bharat mata.
The Bharat who is my mother, Jisha is also my mother. I will shout for justice till we learn about respect.
