How upset will you be if anybody accuse your own homeland? I am patriotic in my own way and do not support blind allegations and judgements of any sort…even if it is about someone else.
I came across the post by Michaela Cross, which recounts her traumatic experiences while staying in India. As a women it pained me to read her agonizing experiences. It pained me to be reminded that all women – Indian or foreign are seen as sexual objects. It also pained me to read such thoughts about my country and my people.
The blog is misleading. I will never say that she was bluffing about her painful experiences or about the effect it had on her. I will not deny that sexual abuse doesn’t happen here nor that it happens only to certain people. But it is misleading because the article portrays India to be the worst country with highest sexual assault, which, of course, directly points towards Indian men. This isn’t true.
There are vile monsters in every nook and corner of the world. Some place swarms with the likes of these and some places they are more or less controlled. But that doesn’t mean sexual assault do not happen everywhere. Obviously, all people are not alike. So is the case with men. There are decent men who respects women and there are also despicable devils who leers and abuses women. But i don’t believe all men to be innocent as lambs. It’s in their nature to be on the aggressive side when compared to women.
