Actually this post is not about the Delhi Rape case at all. It is more about our mind set.
When we see an incident like the Delhi Rape Case or the School shooting in US, we get agitated and want a quick solution.
Typically if we see a ‘Delhi Fraud case’ or a ‘Mumbai cheating case’ we still do the same thing.
We are all angry, agitated and fuming. So we want punishment like castration, death by hanging, or what have you. That will prevent these 5 people from committing a rape again. Sorry, that does not help.
What needs to be done is some kind of a profiling of the rapists. Once the profiling is done, see where they were 20 years ago – and start counseling all the people who fit that profiling. If a man does not respect his wife, his children will not respect their mother. If they do not respect their mother, they will not respect their sister. So like everything else, charity, chastity, and good behavior start at home.
Take a Delhi fraud case or a Mumbai cheating case. We urge that the scamsters be punished. Immediately. Great. Till today not a paisa has been returned to the ‘investors’. Of course calling them investors is also stupid, but they claim to be one.
Solving the cheating case is far far more difficult than the rape case. There has to be a mass communication – and far far more important there has to be LEARNING. The investor has to accept RESPONSIBILITY for investing. In this case the girl was brutally attacked by 5 armed men, so his male friend was also rendered helpless. This is sheer bad situation where the girl was completely helpless. This kind of a situation happens to ‘investors’ too. Out of the 9000 listed companies, 8750 are below Rs. 200 crores market capitalisation – and NOT WORTH LOOKING AT. Stay away.
Out of the 5000 mutual fund schemes 4980 are NOT worth looking at. Stay away.
I am not trying to say that the anger is wrong. In fact if this anger can lead to a solution, at least it will protect half a billion women in India and many more around the world.
What I am trying to say is: Solutions are not so easy and quick. Requires tremendous patience, grassroot level interation, counseling, therapy, etc. Results will not be easy to measure. Nor will results be quick.
Good things in life take time to achieve. You can have ‘get rich quick’ schemes, but not ‘get wealthy quick’ schemes.
