Turning the pages of the newspapers I only see advertisements of the ‘Puja sale’ ‘Diwali sale’ or some other kind of sale going in the shops and online websites, it is then when somehow this irony struck on me. On page 4 I read an article named, “Minor girl kidnapped by classmate, raped for three days.” While just on the next page there was an advertisement for ‘Durga pooja’ saying, “Instead of searching for her in an idol, find her in your life.”

We human beings are so cryptic, we pray to an idol with all our heart while a girl is faced with such inhuman conduct, goes through such humiliation that she herself is reduced to such a state of a cold heartedness.

    1. Thanks a lot.
      I am not idol worshiping, what I want is a better society for women. A human here worships an idol with such devotion and such faith but I wonder where does that faith and humanity goes when it comes to be living with another human.

  1. The best we can do is to learn not to be affected by the atrocities of life as a human being. This doesn’t mean hiding our heads in the sand, but seeing clearly, and remaining calm, while we pursue the best life for ourselves. Acceptance allows us grace, and protection from harm.
    I know your post comes from a good heart…

    1. I know, If you cannot respect a lady who is alive and who deserves every inch of the respect then why and even importantly how could one worship an idol? And even if you do then what is the point of worshiping on one hand and disrespecting humans on the other hand.
