I am a child and know no pains
I am just five and play but games
I laugh and hop and jump around
I am cheerful, happy and sound.
Along comes a man big and vile
He entices me with a lot of guile
He bruises and hurts me with his penis
He stuffs a candle into my anus
He tries to strangle me and tortures me too
I am bleeding and shocked to say the least
To the police my stunned father runs
The police shake their heads, take no guns
OH society I knew not the meaning of the words that I have used
My mind is a turmoil and I am internally bruised
Why or why can I not be a child!!
OH Society can’t you protect an innocent child?
Such news is a sad testimony that proves the need for more urgent and fundamental action to prevent sexual assault in India. This time it is a Swiss tourist who is raped and tragically right in front of her husband. Apparently there are enough men in India who consider it necessary to show off their sexual prowess by resorting to gang rape. This is tragic to say the very least!!
This is a clear indication that the limited natural interaction between males and females as prevalent in bigger sections of Indian society is leading to suppressed sexual desire. A good part of this pent-up sexual energy seeks rape as an outlet. This could explain the high statistics of one rape every twenty minutes. All this really urgently calls for introducing social education to promote a natural interaction between males and females. After all India is economically not in the 19th century!!
