Lucky

There are no words that can fully describe my disgust and anger at the way the filth of sexual violence is deepening, in too many parts of the world. That it is being defended at all is even more disdainful.

This poem is fifth in the anthology of poems based on Social Evils.

  1. Rape is a severely under-reported crime with surveys showing dark figures of up to 91.6% going unreported.
  2. A United Nations statistical report compiled from government sources showed that more than 250,000 cases of rape or attempted rape were recorded by police annually. The reported data covered 65 countries.
  3. 1 out of every 6 American women has been the victim of an attempted or completed rape in her lifetime (14.8% completed, 2.8% attempted).
  4. Every 98 seconds another American is sexually assaulted.

I have seen how the definition of this heinous act has degraded over the years.Initially, just being raped was a taint to someone soul and body and now as the humanity degrades further and flushes the morals down the drain even more, just being alive after being raped is considered “lucky”. So where are we heading?

  2. This is a situation that many of the women do not want to report because of the feelings of disgrace, and humiliation. May be in the western countries, it might be more open. But in Asian countries, the sexual assaults are covered. Mostly by the parents, who fear the stigma, and impact it has on women. If a woman was assaulted, most of the time, that girl would not be able to find a partner, as men regards them as “used”.

    • That whole “worth” and “honour” stigma goes back to our agrarian roots, as if the lack of virginity will somehow reflect badly on the parents of the young woman. It will indeed take a while for this to fade from culture, but fade it will. Today’s women, worldwide, have for the most part had enough.
