It was the golden vedic era when Indian women were honored as goddess Lakshmi. It was the time when the birth of the girl child transmuted the mundane moments of a house into magical ones. During that period, the birth of a girl child produced much more mirth than the birth of its male counterpart. It was perhaps the time when the women lived in the matriarchal society, with her own prerogatives.

It was the golden vedic era when Indian women were honored as goddess Lakshmi. It was the time when the birth of the girl child transmuted the mundane moments of a house into magical ones. During that period, the birth of a girl child produced much more mirth than the birth of its male counterpart. It was perhaps the time when the women lived in the matriarchal society, with her own prerogatives. There was hardly any line of demarcation between a male child and a female child as both of them were considered as the uncertain blessing bestowed by God. But today, with the advent of civilization the condition and status of the fairer sex in our society has taken a strident turn. Women in today’s era, which we call modern, stand no more on the pedestal of glory. The condition has worsened to such an extent that their status and credibility is getting buried deeper and deeper into the mire with each elapsing day. Women today have been reduced to a mere commodity which is ‘used’ to fulfill the selfish lustful desires of some wild patriarchs. The dominion male counterparts of women possess a dogmatic approach towards them. Often girls while commuting from their home to study place or vice versa, have to face derogatory and insulting remarks by some vagabonds. A girl walking on the roadside is persistently haunted by the fear of being molested or sexually harassed until she reaches her destination safely. Every moment a feeling of terror looms large over her psyche lest she becomes a victim of molestations.

The recent Guwhati molestation case has rocked the whole nation. Further it portrays how safe is the fairer sex in our country. This shameful incident is not just one but there have been many more such incidents of which most of them have gone unreported by the victims due to the fear of being desolated by the society. On the new year’s eve of 2006, a woman was brutally molested by the ‘beasts’ of Mumbai. In 2011, two youngsters, Keenan Santos and Reuben Fernandez were killed while trying to protect their female friends from being molested. Gurgaon which is in the vicinity of Delhi has become a seething cauldron for such activities of molesters. These were the two prominent incidents of the many which were highlighted by the media but the truth is quite bitter. About ninety percent of the rape cases go unreported by the victims lest they might lose their credibility and tagged as ‘used’ by the society. Victims who raise their voice against such acts are alienated by our orthodox society just because she has lost her ‘Izzat’, consequently such women undergo depression and are left with no other option except committing suicide.

Such incidents portray the status of civilization of our society and how well our country is proceeding towards the notion of development. The reporters of the electronic media continue to shoot the victim being molested but don’t put a step forward to save the victim or agitate against the activity lest they may lose to cover the ‘sensational’ scene and they may not tag that clip as ‘exclusive’ during its telecast. All the morality of the males has gone out of window after following this shameful case of Guwhati. Ofcourse these beasts are few but they bring ignominy to the whole male society.

Every year cents of rape cases are lodged, offenders are prosecuted, put on trial, get bail, put on trial again and again but the verdict always remains impending. The males of the bourgeoisie class or the denizens of the big families
