December the 16th, 2012 would remain unforgettable in the history of India, when as Indians almost all the citizens, women, men and children felt crumpled, on hearing the gory incident of gang - rape and unprecedented sexual assault in Delhi on a young woman in her early twenties.
As much as the pain was unbearable for the young woman so much was it for the young Indians who are unrelenting in protests and pursuing the Government authorities to hang the culprits. The girl could not be saved, but the question today in front of the nations is who would be the next victim?
This incidence of violence has badly hit not just one woman variously nicknamed by Indian media as ‘Damini’ (energy), ‘Nirbhaya’ (fearless), or ‘Amanat’ (treasured one), but has hit everyone. Woman in this country today has cried on being a woman, some even through placards demonstrated regret for giving birth to men, her rapist-killer.
A Peril in Missing Millions! - Cheers for the prophets, poets and philosophers of all ages. Many of whom were awarded a cup of poison but they lived to magnetize the world by their religious spirits and continue to exert the spiritual force even today. Treatment of women in every age has remained their special cause of concern.
The ancient law giver of India Manu, in elucidating on the importance of treating women well, opined; ‘men prosper where women are revered. Where she is radiant everybody else is radiant. Where she is miserable everything gets destroyed.’ Struggles elsewhere in the world and specially that of Jesus Christ and Prophet Mohammad revolved round justice for women and their well being. World has seen the glorious efforts of the enlightened in restoring a proper place for women brought important religious, civilizing, cultural upheavals.
India of the 21st century awaits a religious movement of the kind that should enable us to realize the merit in the wisdom of the Providence. A serious study of the spirituality in religion and sublime literature of the world reveals that their abiding themes have been an understanding of the relation of man and woman. The creation always is the story of the two forces coming together in any form animate or inanimate, spiritual or material.
