No city in this world is safe enough for a woman to step out of her house, anytime she wants to. Women across the world are sexually assaulted, be it in the office, at the train station, or even in full public view! How many times have we seen a lady being eve-teased by a bunch of guys, publically? And we, as public, do not want to get into all of that because of the legal implications. That begs us to ask the question, have we lost all humanity? The recent events of a 25 years old physiotherapist being sexually assaulted and murdered at her own house in Mumbai has left everyone speechless! How can we ask our daughters to not step out of the house after dark if we cannot even guarantee their safety at their own homes! Home is a place where they are supposed to feel safe. Now before you argue or suggest that it was that woman’s fault somehow, have you heard about another case from Delhi, where a 10 years old finally opened up to her mother about the ordeal she had been going through for the past 3 years. Her neighbor, a married man, had been sexually assaulting the little girl for 3 years and had threatened her that her mother would go through the same if she was to tell anyone about his brutality. These are just a few cases that have come to light from the metropolitan cities. But have you ever thought what must be happening in villages, where when a woman is raped, it is considered very shameful for the woman’s family. In villages, it often happens that the rape cases are not registered and the victim is to marry her predator so as to save the family’s name. In recent times, there has been an increase in the number of rape cases, because slowly people have started to realize that sexual assault is a heinous crime and people who do it need to be punished for the same. The victim is called a victim for a reason, because she wasn’t at fault. Instead of siding with the predator, we should stand up for those victims. The victims from the act do not have anything to be shameful about. Instead they should look their perpetrators in the eyes and demand for justice. It is very easy for famous people to take a stand, as they are famous and thus considered powerful. But what happens to those who are nobodies?  Are they supposed to just take the injustice silently? Who can they turn to in such an hour of need? It is not enough for people to just say that they support the victims from such crimes, because actions speak louder than words. So the next time you see someone who is being sexually assaulted or eve-teased, make sure you stand up with them against such gruesome crimes. You never know, a little support might be all that someone needs, even if it is coming from a stranger.

India has been a leading for hub for surrogacy for quite some time now. The first surrogate surgery was performed in 1994, but it wasn’t legally recognised until the year 2002. Following that year, surrogacy in India has been increasing ever since. People from across the globe fly into the country every year to have their baby. This has led to surrogacy becoming a major “industry” in the country. Even though it has been widely recognized and such vast global onset of surrogacy, it is still an unorganized sector. Even though it is now legally accepted and women are paid well for it, it still raises a lot of ethical issues. Most of the women involved in surrogacy in India come from the lower sections of the society. Due to their lower standards of education they are still not aware of their legal rights and this often leads to her being exploited by the agents and clinics. They are not provided with any care post delivery which increases the chances of infections and other post delivery complications. Surrogate mothers are not legally recognized as “workers” in India and hence they do not have any legal rights. Also there is a fear of social stigma if the surrogates name is revealed as it is still something that is looked down by some sections of the society. Besides the mother, there are issues faced by the parents as often due to the IVF procedure more than one embryo gets fertilized, leaving the parents to choose between the babies. Sometimes due to prenatal growth complications, the baby also has to be aborted, crushing the dreams of the parents. Sometimes problems arise when the child is born with birth defects are often abandoned. There are also issues with citizenship sometimes with parents coming from abroad and this puts the child’s future in jeopardy. Pertaining to all of these ever growing issues it is essential to lay out legit laws regarding surrogacy and recognizing it as a sector of employment and providing rights for the women.

The Sati practice might have been abolished a century ago but the atrocities against widows have never really stopped. There are still many parts of India that continue to have an inhuman behavior towards the widows. The loss of a loved one might be painful but losing your dignity with it makes life unbearable for these women. White is considered as the colour of mourning in various cultures across India and so widows are not allowed to wear any colour other than white not for days but the rest of their lives once their husband passes away. It signifies them mourning for their remaining life. With this they are also stripped off their jewellery, sindoor or any ornamentation they might have on them. They are made to avoid any sort of vanity for their future life. In some cultures, they also shave off a widow’s head and never allowed to grow her hair back. If this was not enough, they are forbidden to interact with the outside world any longer and made confined to their house or sometimes just their rooms living in isolation for the rest of the lives. They are made to observe a life of abstinence, prohibiting them to remarry or having any relation with another man. At times the widows are also sent away to ashrams in Vrindavan and Varanasi and are confined to a life of prayer and begging. They are not given any rights in the property of her husband and are shunned from any inheritance. They are made to downsize her diet significantly, sometimes to just one meal a day, or turn vegetarian if she would eat meat when the husband was alive. It is our responsibility to protect the basic human rights of women who have lost their husbands, who have been through a heartbreaking tragedy, and are constantly subjected to the shame and disrespect without having any fault.
