Cries from India

The women are shouting angry protests
a healthy outlet for centuries of suppression and abuse
Rape, violence and death now in the public arena
Indian men can’t get much meaner

They overdose daily on a banquet of porn
leaving women and children with souls and bodies torn
everyone feeling helpless, forlorn
These Indian men deserve public scorn!

Unless the good ones stand up and shout
educate and publicise what abuse is about
Real men should protect girls of all ages
Indian men who transgress, lock them in cages!

Their rape, violence and mutilation send emotions into rages
educate them on acceptable behaviour in stages
All should coexist in harmony and mutual care
Indian men must treat all equal and fair

Please learn and grow
for we reap the seeds we sow
Ensure those who abuse and rape
are given no excuse to escape

Indian men must create their own solution
For this inexcusable, inhumane pollution!

One young man only got three years for rape and murder …
the Indian govt is changing his identity and wiping his record … is this justice?

  1. ‘Shame from peers’ that sounds promising. I don’t want to believe the horrors, though of course I do. I agree, they are about power. But once committed, everyone involved is changed for the worse. To break the cycle, perpetrators must just stop! Or else what’s left for the future?
    Americans, for instance, tend to help out of (our own) national interest. You don’t need that. How much can we make an excuse of our legacy? Right now, though, I want to slap all the Indian men silly. And many American men, too. What gives us the right? Nothing. When we commit violence, we are committing sins and crimes. We have no right. We are stealing in a terrible way. There is no easy solution, I guess. We must say STOP!

  2. The diet they have is perverted and gives, sadly, permission to do violence, especially against women, I hear a plea for change, but no just in India. Boldly and rightly stated Kate – keep on saying

  3. This is definitely a problem worldwide. So many horrible crimes and sentences that look more appropriate for shoplifting than a violent crime because “We don’t want to ruin his life.”

    We need to work on sentencing, but in a bigger picture, we need to work on how we raise our sons and how we, as men, role model for one another. There is a nearly worldwide culture of violence against women and until we brothers, husbands, and fathers stand up and demand responsibility from our peers, we’ll have to keep talking about punishment rather than avoiding it entirely.

    • Not until all good men stand up and say NO, this is completely unacceptable behaviour … these men are also fathers, husbands, sons and brothers … respect is vital!

      • The same thing happens in my country too Kate…rape cases has recently skyrocketed..and every case is far more disgusting than the previous ones…mothers fear for their daughters…

        • And I meant to harm with that comment. But I really believe that major change has to come for this to ever end. Schools need to play a greater role. Mothers drilling these things into their young boys heads. Fathers setting better examples. And men and society in general have to stopping treating women as the weaker sex. When the day finally arrives that women are TRULY treated as equals, we will see things change.
          Sorry, for the long winded reply, but during my childhood I watched my drunk father beat my mother. This subject is very important to me.

  4. I’m from India! I’m against Rape!
    Yes it’s Sad! It is a Crime! We are fighting this issue and more sooner than not we will get over this
    Mentioning Indian men as a whole is offending to both the Men and India. India is a Great Nation! Such acts dont define India or it’s citizens. I don’t deny this crime this is a World Problem but what needs to be said is that this does not define my country
