"India has hundreds of problems but millions of solutions." - Kailash Satyarthi

"Hundreds of problems": On point. From high population to corruption scandals, the country is always struggling with one thing or another.  
"Millions of solutions": Really now?

After the Nirbhaya rape case on December 16, 2012, all across the world, India has garnered an image that we definitely can't be proud of. Forget the world, let's talk about ourselves for a minute.

Can we honestly say India is a safe place for women? Of course not. 

Every day when we open the newspaper, we see a new instance of rape. Maybe we aren't even surprised anymore. Yes, we feel angry for a moment, but we move on to cursing something else, the very next minute. 

An interesting fact came to light recently

According to Pornhub's annual report, India ranks third in the world when it comes to watching porn. The porn ban by the Government back in 2015 led to a huge outrage from the public. How are we so active in voicing our opinions in such matters? Is porn so important to the people? 
Maybe it is.
But does it play an active role in the increasing cases of rape in India? Are porn and rape connected?

"Somewhere yes but not all those who watch porn are rapist." @__the_lost_typewriter

"Yes.. they are connected, watching porn leads to the sexual feelings for a person, which indirectly leads to rape cases." @ariesqueen_dj

"Yes ! We want protection for women ! Not mandir and masjid !" @mohd_meraj__khan_

"No they are not ... but in general women are sexualised everywhere.. which obviously gives men the want / need a woman .... " @aksh.aya

"Indian movies sexualise and normalise eve teasing women and show that the girl falls for her stalker. Movies give a wrong message. I don't think porn is connected directly" @ishan_2597

"Some people watch porn and they are desperate to have sex so they rape" @_adi1ya_

"No.... Watching porn is normal..it doesn't mean that every single one is become rapist.... The problem is the upbringing n the Sankars of that person..." @sid_lokhande_3474

"Nothing is connected. Rape shall never be justified no matter what. Evolve thinking, stop blaming. Blame the parents who teaches their son to protect themselves but can't teach their daughters. Tell your friends that jokes on these topics ain't funny. Let's change ourselves first before telling others." @im_suvam

"Nope main issue is mentality if people stop seeing girls as an object trying to find reason to judge a girl as how sexually arousing she is all the country would have less rape rate." @12am.anecdotes

Interestingly, the same post when posted on our Facebook page was removed because a lot of people thought we were providing fake data. We have data sources which say India ranks 3rd in porn watching and 4th in rape crimes (was 3rd in 2014). But rather than discussing the issue, people chose to report it as fake. Are we even ready to accept the facts yet?

Are we?
