I hope you all enjoyed my recent blog posts. In my last post titled "The Lost Love The Vermilion", we read a not-so-forever relationship between a woman and the vermilion she is embellished with and ends up at losing her love forever. Today, let's talk about the real toppers of institutions run by life where courage matters more than marks and it's their endeavours that put their names in the hall of fame rather than getting the highest percentages.
Reading some of the blogs yesterday, I came across a name "Mukhtar Mai". How many of you know her? Many of you still don't know her name but that's fine. Take little time from your busy life and read Mukhtar's maddening story to which she made a precious life out of it. Mukhtar was gang raped by 6 men in year 2002. At that time, her 12 year old brother was wrongly accused of having improper relations with a woman from another tribe. When she wanted justice for him, she was gang raped by six men and was left to make an example not to defy the local authorities. But life lived within her. She fought for justice almost a decade and finally succeeded. Like her, there are uncountable names fighting for justice, some succeeded in getting it and the most unfortunate ones who are silenced with unmeasurable anguish within themselves.
Along with Mukhtar, there are many more names to the list of acid attack survivors mistakenly understood as acid attack victims like Laxmi Agarwal, Lalita Benbansi, Arti Thakur and many more.
What was their fault when they got assaulted? Does questioning wrong have anything to do with physical recidivism along with mental deterioration? Definitely not!!! These ladies did not do injustice to any of the men but her disallowances towards iniquity proved to be a fatal future for them. They were dragged to death after negotiating for equitable and pertinent answers.
It takes a coward to target a woman's body for their revenge rather than raising their arguments. Hindering a woman's existence will be a great loss to commons. Men need to be focused to many things rather than noticing woman bodies for self-entertainment. You exist because of her. Ruining her identity will leave you with miserable reflections. Her life is precious. Her body is pure and remains to be unnoticed for immoral actions. If you find anyone suffering from physical abuse around you, be polite and civilised to them and encourage them to live a blissful life by losing sight of the scars she got from an unfortunate accident, anyone could suffer from. Treat them fairly among others and make them realise of their priceless status. Encourage them to be the survivors rather than just be the insufferable victims. Set them free from false notions because the negative effects of an abuse disturbs a woman's life no matter how many years have passed. And the most important is to encourage life out of her.
