This question crossed my mind many times. Are we really Humans?
No we are not.
The people who go with the title of this blog would think I have gone mad but I am sure that we are not humans. We are stepping into 2015 and witnessing a technological miracle in our daily life. We talk about liberty of thoughts, culture, sex orientation, and lifestyle and so on. Our era has proven to be the best civilization but I think we all are living in an illusion. We have not civilized yet, we are still living in barbarian society where individuals are considered a mere commodity. Now you would opinionated me a gal who is too feminist and find it a boring speech about equality and empowerment.
I know this is a common concern but why I choose this day 16th December for this blog because something atrocious happened on 16th December 2012 which shocked not only the Nation (India) but the entire world. That day has been marked as a black day. An innocent girl was being gang rapped in a bus in Delhi, capital city or ultra modern hi-tech city with so much facilities and literacy. A lot of agitation was witnessed from the common masses to provide the justice to the girl who was eventually brutally murdered on that day. Lots of marches, dharnas (strike), meetings and lot more happened but has anything changed till that date?
No…. The people believed it all happened because of lack of public transport facility as girl stepped into some unauthorized bus service and lot was suggested to fasten such services. Very recently again a big rape case was reported in the capital. Ironically this time girl opted for the reliable transport facility, “uber cab service” and she was rapped by a cabby. It’s not only about just these cases or about Delhi or about India.
While you are reading this blog somewhere at some place some other girl would be getting raped, physically or mentally. It keeps on happening since ages and everywhere around the globe. We consider others as an insignificant materialistic piece and preferred to treat the way we want. If it’s not rape then its molestation, harassment, domestic violence, human trafficking, killing, attacks on the name of gender, nation, culture, honor, power and religion. And, first time I really feel so unfortunate to born as so called Humans?
My question still left unanswered, “Are we really Humans?”
