No country for women4 min read 24 Dec 2012, 01:15 PM IST
From the time of the ritual disrobing of Draupadi in Mahabharata, many men have participated in such public stripping of a woman
She wanted a night out with her friends. She is a teenager. She got into an argument. She left the bar. And then her nightmare began. Louts and ruffians, who had no business asking her why she was out, or at a bar, or what she was wearing, and certainly had no right to touch her, violated her body, assaulted her dignity and looked triumphantly at the camera. By watching the reruns, many more among us have become accomplices. People who have no business knowing her name, now know her name, thanks to careless politicians. The criminal attack in Guwahati will inevitably leave scars on the young woman which will take a long time to heal.
