A pledge for a safer India
India witnessed such a rare moment when a yet unnamed Braveheart battled for her life and dignity in a manner so heroic that even death could not destroy her memory and her legacy. It moved India to tears, introspection, and a resolve.
A resolve that, come what may, we will not let this happen to another daughter of India. And, to resolve that the Braveheart’s death will not be in vain; but will ignite a fire that will burn and burnish the fight for protecting the dignity and honour of India’s women.
So, in her memory let us take a pledge, that as a society and as individuals, we will revisit our tryst with destiny and create a society where the respect for women is one of our first and inalienable principles.
And, thus be worthy of her, in whose memory we take that pledge.
If you believe that all citizens have to play a role in making India worthy of the Braveheart’s memory and spirit, we welcome you to take this pledge.
She is neither nameless nor faceless, half the population of earth is her face and name !
Let the honor and respect for this Face and Name be expressed in solidarity as without this half, the other half does not exist !
Let's be proud of our existence One which has both halves equally respected, honored and self-expressed !
Let us make india safest place for women ,not only reacting when incidents happen but this pledge should remember forever as long as this earth remains.
Lets Teach our sons to be a better Mens and make strong laws for the Acts against women ....and treat girls as equal Human being ...
for a start, let us start replacing "real politik" protests with vigils. the "tough guy leaders" who decried candle light vigils in the wake of the bombay terrorist attacks take note - you look silly when compared with a few well meaning youth holding candles.
secondly, remove images of our pathetic "patriarchal VIPs" from public places and start replacing them with something more aesthetic - India is becoming a very difficult place to love as it is because of it's natural ugliness without the government adding to it.
as women are the one's who can start the change from homes by telling their sons and daughters that they are equal and telling both of them that they both should be respected by each other. this society can run only run in a healthy manner when both are treated as equal
Heads down we should all say - "WE ARE REALLY SORRY NIRBHAYA" . 2013, and the years to come. Let's save the fearless ones we have in our lives, everywhere and anywhere aournd us. Give every lady the respect that she deserves without being JUDGEMENTAL.
Although we speak different languages,cultures,religion, ...and so on...(Unity in Diversity). Lets unite here to make india a better place than ever in 2013..
