Bang Bang, Gang Bang

women protesting against rape

Okay, this is not a porn site. So all those who came here looking for a quick wack and something cheesy, just go back from where ever you have come. If you are still sticking around, then don’t be disappointed at the end, if you are then I will have to go all “I told you so” on you. Though I don’t hate doing it, I am sure you would. So that’s brings us to the questions ” what’s with the cheesy title? Rupertt”. I thought this would give me a few extra pageviews. Just kidding… The real reason is that’s what I wanted to do when I heard of the gang rapes in Delhi, go all bang bang on the gang bangers.



I am pretty sure that most of you have heard something or the other about these gruesome incidents in the Indian capital. For those who, who hasn’t, I will give a quick recap. A girl was traveling in a bus with her male friend, her boyfriend, colleague, just friend I don’t know, not the point here though. So the bus also had some shady characters in it, starting with the bus driver and extending to a couple of passengers. So they starts taunting her, the male friend interjects. He gets beaten up ( awesome guts dude ) and then they go on to rape her and later dumps them some place. Sorry, I can’t give a blow by blow account of what happened, principally because I don’t know. But if you need to know just Google “Delhi gang rapes”, it’s huge news you can’t miss it.

It is not actually breaking news that the Indian youth is sex starved, yes prejudiced mothers your son and daughter are too. I just exited teen age statistically, I know all the less than civil fantasies that rampage their tender minds, all because I harbor them too. I know how dangerous their intentions can be, because I know how dangerous mine is. I am not your occasional rapist, I wouldn’t do that or so I believe. Even if I don’t trust my intentions, I trust my upbringing and I have all faith in my rationale. But the point is this if I harbor such infidel thoughts, what would a less disciplined mind house, I can only guess with much terror.


What we must investigate is the root cause of all this evil, okay proprietors of child marriage, wait! You are not helping. We must try to understand the sexual need of today, I can tell you that it does not one bit good to look upon today’s sexuality with the conservative eyes of yesterday. Today’s youth knows more of sexuality than you would know in a lifetime. The progressive Indian teen who is exposed to the freedom of sexual expressionism prevalent in the western way of life cultivates in him a desire for such freedom. Freedom once tasted leaves a hangover spanning a lifetime and inculcates a strong desire to achieve it. This desire when suppressed by the Indian way of life and it’s taboos does what a pressure cooker does to its contents. Some become submissive others rebel.

statistics on rapeBut even when that underlines the injudicious way the teenage India’s mind works, it still does not justify its misdemeanors. It is not supposed. What I stated is not a justification but a problem and its anatomy. What we need to do to counter such onslaught of civil and cultural unrest is what we have to look into. One may argue for more stringent punishment for these vile creatures. It sure will serve as a better deterrent but doesn’t really solve the problem does it? Even with the surety of death penalty men will continue to rape women, because they don’t think when they rape they just do.


What we should do is not for me to offer with my limited intelligence on bureaucratic red-tap-ism in India. but what I tend to offer as a possibility is what I feel is necessary for the next generation of citizens to know what they hold in terms of civil and civilian responsibilities. I believe a strong and compulsory session must be there in the upper school years when the children are at the most vulnerable from their own sexuality. It is a matter of utmost importance that a teenager be made to understand his sexuality and realize that it is not a taboo. The banner of taboo-ism must at all cost be eliminated from the society so that they wont end up doing shady things in their pursuit of sexual liberty. 


I know I don’t have much to offer in curbing the criminality in today’s men, but I think a safer world for women can be created by tendering to the children who would soon take over this world from us. We have to make them understand that the other gender is to be respected and acknowledged and not to be looked down upon. This must go either way to ensure that we have a new India when gender equality is predominant and is an underlining principle of its existence.

  1. Thanks Sri, That was a fast comment, I just posted it. 🙂

    I do think that could come long way in sorting out the misguided sexual tendencies in people to a great extend and secondly coupled with a stringent and thoroughly exercised punishment system can cure the Indian problem.

  2. Hi Rupertt,

    You have raised valid points here. I believe women need to taught self defense techniques as well to safeguard themselves.
    What are your thoughts on keeping the females in your family and circle safe?
    I've also expressed my thoughts on this topic in my post. 🙂

  3. Proper sex education might help, but who will impart the education in our so called “conservative” society? While people consider sex talks to be a taboo, they don't hesitate in committing sexual crimes. Isn't this a hypocrisy of the world where we all live in?

    Well written! The issue of rape is not new… While they make up more reasons to punish the rapists, I still think like what you mentioned, its the freedom that needs to be controlled.
    Making up like what some say even to the point of capital punishment is not going to stop people from trying to achieve their subdued desires…
    IF we have to stop this, we have to cut it off at the roots!

  5. What I consider a major hiccup in the complete civilized upbringing of a child is the inhibition in the parents to openly discuss the child's sexual problems with the child. This is what that creates a sense of insecurity and guilt in the child, which later manifests as the problems that we see today.

  7. That is the old “who will tie the bell around the cat” problem which can never be solved. I think the everyone should do it. It is not the responsibility of the school or parents alone. Schools, colleges, social, by govt everyone.

  8. Such bloody dystopia, isnt it. Something substantial has to be done. Something that will forever tilt the balance in the favour of women's safety must be initiated. All before this rape case too goes into the archieves of the social mind, never to be remembered again unless the media sees some potential show in it.

  9. Very well said..Rape is just a beginning of trauma a women faces in this society. After-effects are even more heartening.Educating younger ones and post-trauma support should be our highest priority.

  10. In fact, we are all helpless when it comes to the rising criminality today. Parents and teachers can do a lot by inculcating certain fundamental values in children; they should. Social and political leaders too have a great responsibility to be as good examples as they can. When the King is corrupt, the subjects will necessarily be so.

  11. A rather bold yet intriguing post :)!
    Talking of Sex Education: which would be a misnomer as students are often well aware of things which are generally prohibited at homes and schools.We at school had the so called education sessions: which were mere biological than being more moral!
    It would be helpful if our schooling had a built-in character-building, counselling and morally supportive system and culture in place.Self-defence should also be a part of schooling.And of all these things the most important is that we should get more children into schooling :P!! And for those who ve already grown-up, only making liquor more expensive could help 😛 …What say?

    Cheers,

  12. Nice post.

    I like the cute way in which you think sex education and character building might actually solve this problem at hand. Yes perhaps, well sex education might at least teach the kids about protection.

    Hormones really do not have that much to do with rape. Most of the rape cases are still opportunistic crimes. And it is actually a complex play of power and subjugation, the indian society and its structure….

  14. Exactly my point they should be given value lessons. What the children know about they know from porn, that wouldn't be helpful when it comes from a fraternity that promotes bondage, rape all artificial and performed under safe conditions yet…

    When it comes from your mother and father, whom you see are respectful of each other, when it comes from your teacher whom you hold in high esteem , it would be positive to the character building
