“Prevent Rapes and Check Atrocities on Women” - Professor M.S.Rao

“The thing women have yet to learn is nobody gives you power. You just take it.” - Roseanne Barr

The recent gang raping of a woman in the midnight in a moving bus in Delhi has drawn attention across India. It indicates that there is no safety for the women in the independent India. It shows the way men treat and objectify women in their real lives. Some people blame cinema and media responsible for such atrocities on women. Cinema provides entertainment and media spreads information.  Hence, it is something beyond cinema and media.

It is deplorable that Swamis and male chauvinists blame women for moving in the midnight and maintaining indecent attire. There are other reasons responsible for such incidents. According to noted psychologist, Sigmund Freud, the human mind is trifurcated into three compartments - Id, Ego and Super Ego. Id is instinctive and irrational; Ego is rational and logical; and Super Ego is ethical and moral. Every man encounters these three stages every time.  He will be rational and logical when he is able to crush his irrational and instinctive – Id, and allows it to be overtaken by Ego. If he allows further, he will appreciate from ethical angle and stand out from others as a role-model. When we look at rapes on women, it is the Id which is responsible for such instant and instinctive inhuman act.  Although desire to have sex is a natural one for every human being the human mind must think logically that it is essential to have consent of opposite sex. But sometimes men are instigated in the wrong company of friends and resort to such cruel acts. At the same time, women must understand basic body language to convey right signals to others in public place.  Some women don’t realize that they send tempting signals unconsciously from their body language. Mistaking such signals, men resort to such inhuman acts.

Parental upbringing matters a lot to check atrocities on women and prevent rapes. Parents must teach their children how to behave with fairer sex. Men must empathize that they were born to women.  They should not get intoxicated by irrational sexual desires.

Women must take precautions to defend from such rogues by mastering the basics of martial arts and using them at an appropriate time to defend themselves. They can also send message through their cell phones to police to get timely assistance when they sense that some untoward incident is going to take place.  They must also learn the basics of body language that tempt men to resort to rape.  The existing Indian laws are not enough, and therefore, it is time to plug the loopholes in the law to avert such incidents.

Swami Vivekananda rightly said, “All nations have attained greatness by paying proper respect to women.” Hence, let us respect women to attain greatness. Let us not forget that we were born to women.

Life is great!
