Women,the extinct species

[Again one my posts on a orkut community]

For the past few weeks TOI has been carrying a news feature on dropping sex ratio in Gujarat and other states of our country. The problem is not as grave as title suggests. (Though if you would ask me skewed ratios are considered a problem of national importance in engineering colleges)

On a more serious note as they say the litmus test of a utopian society is the status of women in it.
The dropping ratios, a result of female foeticide, a pestiferous act, have led to several other crimes against women.

India is often called the land of "sanskars”, of values and of rectitude, an ostensible insignia if you would ask me, has had a social structure which is harsh on women. Why do we in this modern age still continue commit atrocious crimes like female infanticide?

Finally do you believe banning ultrasound procedures can be a solution? Personally I believe banning anything is never a solution. Defaulters always find a way. The number things that can be done illegally in our country are a stark example.

The problem is far deep-rooted than this.

This post is a copy of one my posts on an orkut community.

Here are some interesting articles I came across

This article is Nathu Ram Godse's defence speech in court. I know its almost blasphemous to discuss this here but as democracy demands let us lend an ear to all.

This article will also show you how fanaticism using communication can seem so convincing.Bending words to justify irrationality. After all hitler also had supporters.

Below are two articles part of a special series of "What If" carried by Outlook.These are articles are essays basically exploring past the if gandhi had lived on.The articles require online registration which is free.


I hope you find them interesting.

More on this later.

Now here's deeply confounding a question that just struck me..

Why does superman need that red robe?

a) You miserable physics student, thats there to help in the aerodynamics.

b) It comes in great help when needs to blow his nose.

c)It matches with his underwear.

d)All of above.

Now I almost 1.5 hrs surfing through today ,one of those very few sites which are informative , interesting and a pleasure to eyes.:)
