not only women, but girls are notsafe . we have recent horrifying news items ofNitari killing that has shocked the whole nature . how can such ghostly and devilish activities could happen in the capital city of india. It has exposed how anti-social elements and bad characters have poisoned our social and cultural life. Lets have another example of Arushi murder case that has happened years ago still the culprits are not found. A very recent report of gudia case again highlights the worse condition of our country.
till where girl is safe . ironically many laws are enforced but none work out IS humanity completely vanished. Question is who will save womanhood? What is the future of woman? To what extent peopleprotest but results are neutral only .

for the woman who turn to law what are the options? Apart from section 304(b) IPC, where the death of women under any unnatural circumstances is a dowry related death. She cannot take a restraining older against her abusive mate. The domestic violence against women act could go a long way in removing insecurities from the minds of women if its policy is TO STOP VIOLENCE.

The whole war was taken just fro the revenge because of the humiliation led to their wife , draupadi. Then, lord Krishna says:
“the women have that power to built the world and to destroy the world too if she is exploited”
there was so much of blood –shed because of that humiliation only . behold, if todays modern lady take the incarnation of draupadi what will happen to culprits. So, the world should learn and men should not force a lady to be cruel as its SHE who is the symbol of peace and sacrifice.

let the lady not be cruel !!
