Recently, the Minister of State for Home Haribhai Parathibhai Chaudhary shared his views on marital rape in response to Kanimozhi's question on whether the law would be amended to make it a crime. He didn't think so, since "marital rape cannot be suitably applied in the Indian context" as marriage is considered "sacrosanct" here. In essence, Mr. Chaudhary is saying that it is okay for a man to rape a woman he is married to. By law!

I read recently that while Rahul Gandhi, the Congress Vice President and MP of Amethi is on a mysterious sabbatical, posters offering a reward for the "missing" politician have popped up in Amethi; even Bollywood song lyrics have been employed to lament his absence. I am extremely amused each time I come across such anecdotes surrounding the infamous and elusive Mr. Gandhi. Who says he does not deliver? I say he delivers complete entertainment.

It is important, and I'd even say mandatory, for each and every person to SEE this film--to see with their own eyes and be AWARE of the gravity of the danger every woman faces today. We desperately need to educate our young men. I think we should show such documentaries right from the school level to teach young men the importance of respecting and coexisting with women rather than treating them as objects to use or violate.
