What'd I ban in India if given a chance? Well, there's an endless list. The priority would be begging.
Here, I would like to share an instance with you. I was at a food street with my friends having ice-cream. There came a beggar, asking for something to eat. We purchased him a samosa. Subsequently, came another child beggar, and repeated the same. We denied and the next instance we saw was that beggar was snatching the ice-cream from my friend's hands, and she dropped it. We decided to leave the place and found a few beggars cursing us on our back.
What is it? I mean are we responsible for feeding every beggar who comes in our path? And anyhow if we fail, will we be cursed to death? I was really disturbed with this because they had a whole gang with them.
But, I don't think that it is only me who is troubled with these things in the country. To which I found a variety of answers from different people who are really unhappy and uneasy with a few things in India, which I would like to share with you. Public urination, littering, scribbling on monuments, reservations are a few things which everyone wants to ban obviously, but following are a little different from the list.
Many places in the country have been named after the politicians, especially after the Gandhi family.
Like Nehru Zoological Park, Hyderabad, Jawaharlal Nehru Technological University, Hyderabad
The person said that places and statues should be made in honor of our great scholars and scientists. Also, shows some disappointment that the names of Vivekananda and Bhagat Singh are not taken widely as should be taken.
The two-finger test is a way to check that whether a woman is a virgin or not, where the doctor inserts fingers in a rape victim's vagina to determine its "laxity" and decide if she is 'habituated to sex'. The major purpose behind this is to inspect a woman's hymen, on the assumption that her hymen can only be torn if she has had sexual intercourse. Although this scientifically established assumption is faulty, since the hymen can also be stretched or torn during physical activities like cycling or swimming.
An instance of a seventeen-year-old Radhika* from Mumbai was shared, who was kidnapped, confined for two days and was repeatedly raped by a man from her neighborhood.
For the medical test: "She was asked to remove salwar and sleep on the examination table. The nurse spread the girl's legs and called two doctors in. The samples were collected by a physician wearing gloves. He examined the vulva and took a vulval swab. Then he spread the labia to explore the external opening of the vagina. He found fresh tears and asked the other doctor to note them. Then he inserted two fingers into the vaginal opening and pointed out that the two fingers were going in easily."
Delay of the train or missing of the train can happen sometimes and with a few people but why do we find the area crowded every time? And if this problem prevails throughout the year then a separate arrangement should be made for this. India is a beautiful country, and there are some cities which do not have airports and can be reached only via trains.
This conceptual answer has come from a citizen of Delhi, where he states that the answer has nothing to do with its culture, people or tradition.
The reason behind his reply is it's proximity to the borders of China and Pakistan, whereas both the countries are nowhere near Delhi.
The everyday unrest in Kashmir is not because Pakistan cares about Kashmir but because they want to make the people of Kashmir lose faith in India. Also, they want to occupy it to have a strategic position to initiate an assault on Delhi, India.
According to him:
Scenario: - Pakistan occupied Kashmir.
India comes in a state of emergency. Delhi is put on high alert.
China begins sending it's troop to Kashmir. China takes over Tibet, Nepal, and Bhutan.
"India is totally cornered by the two giants hovering over its head and Delhi is very close to the borders. A country isn't fully defeated until it's capital falls and Delhi is not at all a suitable strategic choice to be the capital of India in this scenario. And to be honest, this scenario can't be scoffed as unlikely."
This is the thing which my father hates too. This is a major problem that anyone would face on dark roads when there are no street lights. Along with this, using a vehicle's flashlight to find a way ahead is illegal, but many drivers still follow it.
Hoardings are a medium to publicize and not to put up something just you want. You can resort to hoardings to advertise or to inform something but the tradition among the politicians of putting up birthday wishes for other politicians is not okay. Not only that, a rival politician will come up with a bigger hoarding just next to it.
There might be two reasons for them to do this, either they cannot afford to make a call to that 'unavailable' politician or either they want to waste money by putting those ugly hoardings on roads.
Ever since the one-child policy successfully ended in China in 2015, I thought that it should officially be launched in India also. The Indian population has been increasing continuously, and it will naturally continue to grow if any serious step is not taken.
The chart shows the predictions clearly. Take time and think yourself.
Mulayam Singh Yadav: "Boys will be boys... they commit the mistake. I won't hang them to death for committing rape."
Mamta Bannerjee said: "Rapists are dushtu chile (Rapists are naughty boys)."
Tapas Paul: "If anyone touches the people of my party, I will tell my boys to go and rape everyone in your house."
Yes, everybody has been given a right to speak whatever they want but is it worthy to give a statement publicly that could hurt someone's sentiments? You have been given a platform so that you can influence others with a positive thing and not negative.
