Blog Action Day 2012 ~ The Power of WE ~ #powerofwe

Dear All,

I cordially welcome you to Few Miles! As you all know, today is Blog Action Day, and this year the theme is The Power of WE.

Why, I hear you ask? The Power of WE is a celebration of ration of people working together to make a positive difference in the world, either for their own communities or for people they will never meet half way around the world. (Taken from BAD page)

There are hundreds of examples listed on Blog Action Day website such as fighting for healthier meals for kids in schools, protecting people’s rights in countries far away, stopping practices in industries that hurt the environment and communities, ensuring people small-scale farmers get fair deals, the rights of women and children are protected and many more. And so far, I’ve supported the causeWater on 2010, Food on 2011, and this time, without any doubts, I’m highlighting a severe issue that prevails in the world.

What’s that severe issue, I hear you ask?

I hope most of us might have heard/seen/read about #Haryana #Rape #Issue where 19 rape cases have been recorded in the past one month. Let she may be a two-year-old girl or a thirty-year-old woman, but if she is a Dalit, then she can be raped in Haryana. She can be raped in a field on late nights or in the godown on an afternoon or even in her own house at gunpoint on a mournful morning. No one is ready to register a complaint, even if the victim registers a complaint, nothing could stop those rapists, and the rape count goes up steadily till date.

Why I want to highlight the issue here on Blog Action Day?

The reason is simple, to show the power of we, and to help to stop this crime against women. It is painful to read it on newspaper.

Can someone say how painful it is to know that a 2-year-old baby was raped? A 2-year-old? Did she at least know what is meant by that?

A 13-year-old girl was gang-raped by nine men. Can you image nine men taking turns on 13-year-old kid? How painful it would be? What should we do to stop this crime against women? Can we cut those men off? (Castrate) Yes, we can.

A 17-year-old girl was gang-raped by four people for nine consecutive days. Can you imagine being raped for nine consecutive days? Nine days? Can you imagine how painful it is to be in that position? Tears rolls down my cheeks when I type this. What do to in this case? Behead them? Yes, we can.

And 16 more such incidents (most of them are gang-raped) are recorded in the past one month.

How should we react to show THE POWER OF WE?

We can suggest the Government to perform a Commando Operation, to shoot the rapist at first sight itself without questioning or arguing with them, if the victim could identify them. And if Human Rights commission raises a question against this action, then the answer should be, they are not at all humans, they are not even animals, because animals are better than humans are; they are fucking rapists, and they have crushed the dreams of a future achievers.

Let’s speak out, let’s join hands, let’s make this bigger and make people listen us to stop the crime against women such as rape, sexual molestation and for lip service, because these men deserve no sympathy, and must be given deterrent punishment.


I’m keeping this post short. If you like to read in detail, stop here.

  1. Ironically true SIS.. We should be ashamed of these accidents.. we live in a country where a girl is worshiped as "Devi" and the same is subjected to such dreadful situations.. Haryana faces the largest number of such cases but its not the only state.. You made a great research.. keep writing on such issues.. hopefully these will help in their own way…
