This Is No Country For Young Women

A year ago a young Physiotherapy student was gang raped on a moving

bus in South Delhi. I am double her age now but I still fear as  night descends over the city.

How do you distinguish the potential rapists from ordinary men? I try to shake the thought off.

This road leads to paranoia and to a conscious withdrawal from public places for personal safety.

The more I withdraw, the less safe the city becomes for younger women.

So its an act of a holy crusade to keep moving forward- to remember is there are men who delight in torturing

and mutilating women, there are also those who fight to bring the torturers to justice.

Empathy is a Revolutionary Concept according to Steinham

Change will come. It is inevitable. We need to just keep pressing forward.
