Prior to Christmas, my city has been up in flames. A girl and her male friend were returning from a cinema till they were hoodwinked into climbing about a bus ( a school bus with tinted glasses) and brutally gang-raped. The details are excruciating. Please forward yourself to the news coverage. The end result turns for the worst. However, here are my thoughts.
The Police are neglecting their duties, and then again everyone else are relentless in saving face. Post the trauma the couple faced, they were thrown back injured and bare on the streets. The crowd just huddled, and none tried to lend a blanket or call for help let alone offer solace. The perpetrators nearly got away. I'm still curious to how a bus with tinted glasses get by the army of police that has been guarding the streets during these festive months. Is a quick buck worth a life?
The girl had been fighting for her very life ever since. She succumbed to her injuries last night. Since then the nation has betrayed her true face.The masses have gathered and protested. Violence ensued. Politicians have played their dice.
Nothing ever changes.
Always the worse case scenario.
