A grieving nation.

Much as I would like to say farewell to the year on a happy note, after the death of  the New Delhi rape victim who had been fighting for her life ever since the heinous crime was committed by six men who have no right to be called 'men', I cannot bring in merriment on this page.

I feel terrible for the girl, her parents and dear ones.
I pray they gain courage to face the situation.

The strong protests of the people must be heard and law enforcement must be strict for such criminals. As long as the women of this country face personal insecurity from lecherous, degenerate forces like this, the nation will have to hang its head in shame. The voice of the silent protests are strong in their very silence.

 The death of the young woman who showed a strong desire to battle for her life to the very end should be the  strength to battle fiercely for the cause of women's safety all over. Let us gain strength to stay indomitable.

For the strong girl, Damini.
