A  GIRL'S  LIFE

A  GIRL'S  LIFE

The most beautiful parts of life are not huge but a small hug from your mother, a morning kiss from your wife, the innocent love and care of your sister, or a cute smile of your girlfriend. What if all this is suddenly snatched from you or from them as well!
Everyone of you have heard about The Delhi gang rape which had sparked awareness and huge protests round the country but what was the result? My question is did we protest to bring an end to the criminals or the crime?

My daughter didn’t do anything wrong, she died while protecting herself. I am proud of her.
– Father of the Delhi gang rape victim to the British media on 5th January

Let me tell you a story and I would request everyone to get involved in it completely and just imagine the scenario
In the village of Kamduni, 20 km from Kolkata lived a young girl by the name Shipra Gosh. She was a brilliant child and one among 3 sibling to the father who was a Mason earning ₹150 every day and mother who sold muri and chhatu. She had to struggle to get education and was one among the 1st to step out of the village for higher education. She was happy as everything was perfect. The 20-year-old Shipra on 07-June-2013 was returning from her 2nd year BA class when she was suddenly abducted by a gang, she was dragged into a deserted factory and then brutally raped by 8 men, those 8 demons in the influence of alcohol raped her whole night turn by turn. The horror doesn’t stop here later the perpetrators tore apart her leg up to the naval when she was alive and then they slit her throat which ended her life. Those demons threw her body in the fields.
This story made a shiver run down my spine, It left me dumbstruck and took a long time to recover
The only mistake of the girl was that she attended college? And this happened just after 6 months of The Delhi gang rape. Do you still think we protest for end of the crime or end of criminals?
It’s not just rape, on the daily basics almost every girl in the country is molested or Eve teased and their freedom is snatched. There are several crimes which are just an example of inhumanity and extreme barbarity

A rod was used during the rape which tore the insides if the victim.

Don’t stare at me, I am human too

I started to write this blog before a week and the research for the blog changed me as a person, I realized that there are many young girls who have the potential to achieve the unthinkable, change the society and reach great accomplishments and the only thing that holds them back are the shackles.

Shackled by society, confined by family, and arrested by fears lies a diamond waiting to shine.
– Varadh Kulkarni (KABIRA)

I met some of these brave women as part of research for this blog, we spoke for many hours only for me to question humanity every time and feel ashamed every time. I could feel their voice echo in my head until today and wonder how they survived but then I realized that only women have the power to overcome such a horror and if that happened to me, I couldn’t.
This blog is dedicated to every single female in the society. Through this blog I would like to say to all the people of the world, just say thank you to your mother for that hug, to your wife for that morning kiss, to your sister for all the care, and to your girlfriend for that cute smile.

  1. True kabira every single girl should tc of herself to protect from those Rapist n I must appreciate u by writing the blog with the understanding n flng of the gal grt going kabira

  2. Need to do something that is not just protest but should bring the change

  3. it’s so sad and discouraging that things like this happen, protest can never be enough..all this rape stems from corruption, the rapist all know that they can get away with it.. it’s sad

    1. True, all the crimes are interconnected which shows the deeper parts of the society

  4. Great one varadh bro. The lines are very touching. From my point of view, It’s a very sad society that we live in with even sadder citizens. Part of the huge problem with rape is that not too many people talk about it. Sure, every once in a while it might be mention but other times it’s pushed to the side like it’s nothing.I think if we discussed more about rape then it could possibly start to die down. We need to talk about the pain it inflicts and the possible consequences to the girl . Maybe then people can start to realize how horrible it is. Right now, majority of us know it’s bad but not how bad it really is.We have society to blame for that. I mean they make tons of movies about how a innocent little girl meets Mr. baddie and they like and each other. Slowly they get close and right at the moment their about to have sex the girl backs out. The guy rapes her and tells all of his friends at school. The girl is heartbroken but she doesn’t do anything about it. She sort of just brushes it to the side eventually forgetting about it. That’s the problem! Movies like that poison rape even more. They need to execute the proper consequence. The viewers would just think ‘oh its no big deal’ when in reality it is. Believe it or not, media plays a ginormous role in our actions. Because, what we constantly see we most likely do. The government need to realize this and take action but that’s unfortunately false hope right there. Even parents are aware of this. That’s why they monitor their child’s television programs and block inappropriate shows. They shouldn’t have to do that though. It’s because t.v is so damn tarnished today. Just Said from my point of view bro.

  5. This really moved me Varadh Anna. Because rape is never d victim’s fault….even if she is drunk, naked, wearing a mini skirt or a veil , even if d authorities didn’t believe her, …n wtever…. keep writing ??

  6. Changes shod come them self… Inner voice shod speak…. Everyone shod think in ther home also some ladies r ther… By giving them pain we came out to this world… We shod keep them happy always….

    1. Thanks a lot GV Bhai♥♥♥♥♥♥, the best feeling of my life is getting your comment, love you Bhai, thanks for the support!!!!
      Keep reading keep supporting ♥

  7. Omg tears r out of control…. I hd no idea abt dis incident… N v hv no idea on millions of incidents dats gng on in d world without r eye on dem…. Brutality hs crossed it’s heights dis days…. Gd job Varadh…. Do such awareness works…. Al d best… Proud of u ma junior…

  8. Blame the rapist not victim why do so many women still believe that rape victim bring it on themselves?
    There are two kinds of males…”who stand up for womens rights and cowards”.. the choice is urs…
    Actually what I personally likes to tell is the blog u wrote would have been expended little more…y bcz the topic ‘ A GIRLS LIFE’ itself clarify us tat it’s the subject related to the girls lyf which may expres us abt the problems she is facing every day…its nt the matter of one r two things she face!!! She faces many prblms realting to her outfit, velger comments from roadsider flocks etc..bt u highlighted only abt Delhi and kamduni gang rape ….I was expecting u to cover still more points according to the subject…
    Last bt nt the least… All d v best for ur future blogs…never stop writting, u have v spacial quality… Wl b waiting for next interesting blog?

  9. Dunno when its actually gonna happen. These protests, candle march, media are just a rage over the incident. Real mentality towards women is disgraceful. They are not human beings I guess according to them.

    1. Well I think things are changing but at a very slow pace, all we have to do is keep our efforts up!
      Thanks for the precious comment
      Keep reading keep supporting ?

  10. really hearttouching bro after reading this i am getting a doubt really i am living in such a country ,surely who doesnt respect a girl they will be punished or should be punished

  11. The changes happen after human realisation. But the realisation comes when he gets punished hardly or when the same case happens with his family.

  12. Hello Varadh.. Nice blogs, i have reviewed all yoy blogs and amazed to get insights into your truly soulful thinking. All the best for all your future endeouvers.
