Must Read : Juvenile + Rapist + Punishment = ?

Yet another post on Rape! Yet another cribbing! But new angles to see.

Dedicated-to-the-rape-victim--28502

Logically, The Capital Punishment is regarded as a last judgement for people whom we think there is no amendment possible after confirming their heinous act(s). Many of us regard rape as such a crime, which deserves Capital Punishment.

What if the criminal is a Juvenile? Here are a few points to think on

  • He may be juvenile by age, but not by physical maturity to commit that crime.
  • Moral awareness level would be lower to such juvenile criminals, whom to blame? himself / his parents / society around him?
  • Capital Punishment is a revenge in crude term. Obvious the victim needs justice and some law to take that revenge.
  • Many of us regard forgiving, Rehabilitation, Other than capital punishments as toothless justice by many.
  • When adults are sentenced to capital punishment, why not the same for a juvenile who is an adult enough physically to commit a rape?

Actually how the victim feels after such incident, if not get killed!

  • Everyone feels pity / sad for her, some society may see her entirely with different eyes. She need to face such a world afterwards.
  • Psychologically, a recovery may take the life time. Nobody can assure this to the victim. From lack of trust to hatred will cling on to the victim’s mind.
  • Unless we were victimized, we can never explain the life after rape. So overall it is much painful than we imagine.

What about the Society?

  • Society as usual will react in its own terms. Everyone will pop up with their take on the issue. Discuss Solutions.
  • But rapes will keep on happening somewhere everyday! The society will repeat its process.

What about Laws?

  • Whenever a Law and order try to find a way to stop a crime, by punishments alone it fails over a period of Time.
  • Many relate rape laws of the Arabic world as the apt ones, but go and ask the women about their rights there. The story will be totally different.

The Roots of a Crime:

Any crime cannot happen unless the social system and it’s laws supports it. The Society organises the Rape! Hard to swallow? yes we have to accept it. Because rape is a morality failure. It fails to respect and value a fellow human being.

What cause the morals to fail?

So simple, wherever women are considered unequal and lesser than men; exploitation occurs. So we need to begin from square one, just as many noble persons say, start teaching our kids about valuing men and women equal. Initiate it from our home.

Awareness about sex and love need to explained to the younger generation without feeding the lust. But we feed the lust to the youth in every possible social media and wants our youth to stay cultured! How? You show women as sex objects, in fact, they are the very women who do it and urge to showcase them as sex objects! Not just media, I can list n number of factors which puts women in bad lights. Overall, the point is no crime can happen without the societies approval. We have approved rape indirectly.

When the basic system of Values and Morals is weak in youth, how can we expect them to see things in matured way? Ideally, if a youngster encounters an unconscious girl, maybe drunk, may be drugged, maybe hurt in an accident, may be in parda or revealing clothes, or maybe even naked!, he should try to take her to safety; protect her. This is what we all want right? High morality! No one wants that girl to get raped by that youngster!

So irrespective of dress codes, culture what we all want in unison is nothing but HUMANITY. It’s no feminism, it is not about much hyped women safety! It is the damn simple kindness to another soul. Why many are not doing it?

LACK OF VALUES. So the ball is in our courts now. Are you going to keep arguing about punishing the criminals? or take effective measures to increase the human values in each mind?

We need punishments for providing justice to the victims of the past and present. But to prevent the crime from happening in the future, we need reformation at grass root levels.

START IT FROM YOURSELF, YOUR HOME, YOUR FRIENDS, YOUR SCHOOLS, COLLEGES, COMMUNITY, SPREAD THE VALUES OF HUMANITY.

Story : 55 Fiction : A Woman in Night Street

Woman in Night StreetDamn power cuts! The darkness filled the night street. “Leave me!” she screamed. With difficulty, I spotted two men dragging her. Not difficult for my pistol and the trust in my aim. One down, the other fled away.

The power came back and she saw a Police Officer. “Thank you Ma’am”, she held my hands.

Powerful Quote #148 : Punishment

Punishment

Any punishment goes meaningless when they do not account for a reformation.
Then what punishment could make sense for incorrigible criminals?

The Economist Intelligence Unit’s where-to-be-born index, (previously called the quality-of-life index) attempts to measure which country will provide the best opportunities for a healthy, safe and prosperous life in the years ahead. It is based on a method that links the results of subjective life-satisfaction surveys to the objective determinants of quality of life across countries along with a forward-looking element.

The independent variables in the estimating equa­tion include:  (2006)

  • Material wellbeing as measured by GDP per capita
  • Life expectancy at birth
  • The quality of family life based primarily on divorce rates
  • The state of political freedoms
  • Job security (measured by the unemployment rate)
  • Climate (measured by two variables: the average deviation of minimum and maximum monthly temperatures from 14 degrees Celsius; and the number of months in the year with less than 30mm rainfall)
  • Personal physical security ratings (based primarily on recorded homicide rates and ratings for risk from crime and terrorism)
  • Quality of community life (based on membership in so­cial organisations)
  • Governance (measured by ratings for corruption)
  • Gender equality (measured by the share of seats in parliament held by women).

Know : 10 Reasons for Anyone to Believe in Karma!

KarmaThere is a common saying “Oh! Isn’t karma a bitch” that has become very popular in modern culture and is used too frequently in context with karma. But the people who really think that karma is something dreadful haven’t really figured out how it actually works. Many people think that karma is just a law that forces you to be good all the time because if you are bad then karma will come and take revenge.

This is the way many religions preach morality with the threat of an impending hell for wrongdoers. But karma is not that simple. It is a much bigger concept than that. Read on to know the top 10 reasons why karma is not a bitch…

1. In very simplified terms karma is the law of cause and effect. For every effect there is something that caused it and it in turns becomes a cause for some other effect. The cycle continues and karma states that bad actions become causes for further bad actions while good actions become causes of good effects. Such a law can never be a bitch because it acts impersonally all the time.

2. Karma is unbiased. Picture this – a great man also has some bad karma and an evil man may have a little bit of good karma. Karma is not partial to anyone. Your every good deed will be rewarded, but similarly, your every bad deed will be punished. There’s nothing bitchy about that.

3. A lot of people think of karma as bad but karma can be good too. As stated the previous slide, good actions lead to good karma and positive rewards. If you help someone in need it will come back to you one day when you are in need. The perception that karma is a tool for punishing the bad is completely absurd.

4. Karma is not revenge either. A lot of people think that if someone has hurt them then karma should take revenge from that person. They want that person to get hurt and suffer and when that doesn’t happen they feel that karma does not exist at all. Remember that karma is not going to take a revenge for you. The person who has hurt you has earned bad karma and it will affect him in the end but it won’t be done to satisfy you or make you feel good.

5. When karma comes back to whatever we sent out, it’s not always obvious especially to others. It’s not like if someone has hurt you then in a few weeks they will get hurt too. It’s not that simple. You might not even realize from outside that the person is suffering but at a very deep level karma will be doing its job.

6. One amazing way of looking at Karma is thinking of it as a balance sheet for our actions. All bad actions go in one column and all good ones in another column. If your bad actions exceed the good ones you are in debt and will receive bad karma but if your good actions are more than your bad ones you’ll receive good karma.

7. Karma is the same thing as the old-age saying “as you sow so shall you reap”. It is a simple reminder that you must behave with others in the same way as you want others to behave with you. If you are rude to everyone you can’t expect others to be nice to you. You should use karma to guide your actions and not think of it as a bitch.

8. Karma is not a bitch, rather it is a moral compass. It should be used to guide your actions. If you know something is wrong, don’t do it just because it seems easy. The wrong things are always easier to do. The shortcut has been never worthwhile taking. Do the hard but right thing.

9. Think about it – How can karma be a bitch if good karma brings positivity to your life? A bitch is always a bitch but karma can be both good and bad depending on how you are and what actions you take. So be good and do the right things and let karma take care of the rest.

10. Someone has very well said that Karma is like a mirror. If you go around hurting people and earning bad karma then of course it’s going to seem like a bitch to you. But try being good for a change and earn some good karma and then see if it still is a bitch. Trust me, it won’t be.
