We are somewhere failing to make our country a safer place to live in. We are still far behind in curing sexual misconduct and increasing incidents of rape in the country.
In the latest incident, a 17-year old boy from Rajasthan was raped in a public toilet and he took to social media to explain his entire nightmare. He made many tweets to express the disgust he was feeling and sought help.
The boy revealed that he wanted to use the public bathroom while crossing a road and when he went inside, two men who covered their faces with a black mask, entered and raped him. What is more heartbreaking is to realize that while he kept shouting and asking for help, no one came out in his support and people behaved as if nothing happened.
The boy mentioned that he was under extreme pain and didn’t know what to do so he ran back home and kept his terrible nightmare to himself.
In his tweets further, he revealed that he didn’t want to share the incident with his parents because they wouldn’t understand it.
No amount of sympathy, care and financial help can make a survivor forget the incident.
It is more important, that we work actively towards making our country safer for our own selves.
