In my point of view, which was created by the legends of the bureaucratic story makers, India would be developed in the near future and in the words of our very own Father of the Nation, Mahatama Gandhi, women of India shall take the lead role in shaping the future of the country. The capabilities of women, their humble charm, charismatic loving heart and a subtle intelligence to deal out catastrophes is a small share of my salute to them that I can express in words.
All had been well for women lest the circumstances that rise out of nowhere for a very long time and only shall improve with the ticking clock. But as is said, ‘everyday has its witching hour’, so does the sun of life sometimes neglects its path. And there comes into being something so dark that makes it lasting impression forever. Life is the acceptance of all the ups and downs but life takes a setback when someone unimaginable shears out your dreams.
A good prospering life in the country’s heart, the capital, New Delhi was pacing and pounding to heights of achievements when, at an omen came the barrier to that soul. Journalist, Soumya Viswanathan was a jovial and work capable person who was unfortunately shot in her own car in the city late night in the dates of calendar gone by. What was gone was gone, but to the pain of the loss, an added piercing was made by the unexpected words of Delhi Chief Minister, Mrs. Sheila Dikshit. Reacting to the murder of journalist Soumya Viswanathan, Sheila Dikshit had said: "All by herself till 3 am at night in a city where people believe...you know...you should not be so adventurous.''
Who, in this world would say her to be an able person to administer a place like Delhi when her words mark utter absence of review and introspection. Herself being a lady and heading the National Capital, in what state of mind could she ever say such words. If she cannot make her own Delhi safe for women all like her, in the past tenure of so many years, does she deserve, even to lead a mob? Uncontrolled words are expressed in anger, not in dismay and loss. Expressing my and everybody else’s animosity to these words shall only pain Soumya’s soul because what would be affected, is not the so called leader, but the hearts of Soumya’s loved ones.
But let it be in our hearts as to who is the one we elect to lead us, to shadow us from the fierce of the world and grow us to future. As of now, the political system and the seat bearers of the Indian politics seem no more than misleading the innocence of the commons to nothing but political benefits. So let things brighten up and hope for the waking up of our leader minds.
