Excerpt from Guru Franklin Joseph
Yes, why is India so bad for women? Is it the fault of the police, the law? Or is it the men? Or is it society? The truth is not so easy to hear. Moving on, should the question is what should we do about it? See it was not a sudden decline of how women are treated in India, as it seems thanks to media exposure. It’s has taken lot of years or maybe decades, and it will take years or maybe decades to improve it. Where does it start? Giving Israeli Self Defense Krav Maga training to women, creating new laws etc maybe, or maybe educating women and mother on how to educate children. Yes, I do not feel the so-called monsters assaulting teenage girls were serial rapist or trained terrorists but normal men who were brother, boyfriends and sons of normal family. Every time we discriminant between our girl child and male child, we are growing seeds of abuse by subconsciousness informing our male child that you are superior and female child you are weak. We need to talk to our children and educate them from a very young age how to treat women by setting a example to them. It’s a slow process but it will yield results. For more information, please visit PowertoWomen.in website or call me, Franklin Joseph at 9886769281, where I conduct training for 1) family as a whole unit and 2) girl child / women on safety awareness and psychological empowerment against crime, violence and sexual abuse.

Alongside an uncomfortable-looking divan where Mahatma Gandhi once slept is a display reminding visitors of something the man himself said in 1921: “Of all the evils for which man has made himself responsible, none is so degrading, so shocking or so brutal as his abuse of the better half of humanity; the female sex (not the weaker sex).”
One evening two weeks ago, just a few miles downhill, a young student left a bar and was set upon by a gang of at least 18 men. They dragged her into the road by her hair, tried to rip off her clothes and smiled at the cameras that filmed it all. It was around 9.30pm on one of Guwahati’s busiest streets – a chaotic three-lane thoroughfare sound tracked by constantly beeping horns and chugging tuk-tuks. But for at least 20 minutes, no one called the police. They easily could have. Many of those present had phones: they were using them to film the scene as the men yanked up the girl’s vest and tugged at her bra and groped her breasts as she begged for help from passing cars. We know this because a cameraman from the local TV channel was there too, capturing the attack for his viewers’ enjoyment. The woman was abused for 45 minutes before the police arrived.
