No one can stop talking about the Delhi rape case, not simply because it is 'just another rape case' but the nature of the horrific crime transcends human imagination. How could six men, brutally rape a young girl, beat her, then extract her intestines with their bare hands and try mowing her down by a bus to cover her crime? It is disgusting, perverse, and frightening to see what kind of behaviour a society that is misogynistic, chauvinistic and deeply patriarchal, can nurture in its menfolk. Yet, I don't think that the death penalty is an answer. A change in attitude is a long-term goal. Short-term, there needs to be a sea-change in how the Indian judicial system looks at violence here in India - and there needs to be harsher laws for people who commit these heinous crimes. Is there a way to rehabilitate them? I doubt. Is there a way that they would learn their lesson? I doubt that as well. But bringing in new changes to law might help rape victims and other victims of sexual violence find justice in this country.
