We talk about human values. We never care to inculcate these qualities in our society and schools be it a government school or private. Surprisingly, education on sex awareness in schools is becoming prominent but human values which are our ancestral properties and foundation of Indian society have no significance in present educational system.

The saying ‘End of Education is Character’ goes missing in the minds of frame-makers of society. Truly speaking, it is not meant to remain in the pages of history books or scriptures.

In the age of innovation and development, the participation of men and women has been envisaged to promote a social culture of equanimity; both the genders are given opportunities to promote socio-economic conditions of state or nation with their best capabilities provided that a safe and sound surrounding is veiled around.

How difficult it is to think of a situation where women cannot move freely or work in a society with fear?

Why do the destiny makers of the nation find excuse time and again to suppress the destitute by giving mere assurances? The politicians are, in fact guardians of our society, how can they ignore plight of common people? Why do they need us to awaken their recess or stolid heart to respond to heinous activities across the nation? Surprisingly, the police and legal system are now understood to have become rudderless.

Undoubtedly, the responsible youth have to come to rescue the deteriorating and repugnant social structure and ill-dispensation of our nation.  
The recent cruel gang-rape incident in Delhi has really shattered the nation as things have gone out of proportion and people have lost faith in the prevailing system of law and order. There are hundreds of such incidences occurring in different states, they are hardly brought to notice or highlighted instead the victims and their families are threatened not to complain to the police or if they happen to lodge the complaint, no response is made by the latter.

It is pertinent, how private buses without permits are plying on Delhi roads and if they have, they violate rules in broad daylight by bribing traffic police and no disciplinary action is taken against them as they generally belong to rich persons with criminal background. How does the transport minister permit such buses and why isn’t he held responsible till now?

A number of unauthorized places exists in Delhi where people hailing from different states come and involve themselves in criminal activities, why aren’t they interrogated and chased out?

The society with two sections of population namely, the literate ones who can be made more responsible, alert and awakened by infusing human values into their minds and the illiterate or rake should be straightened with strict punishment instantly.

We need to ponder over this issue, a meaningful debate in the Power Corridor and outside be done to overcome the defragmented law and order in the society so that our young generation can be bestowed with a bright future and fearless society.

    Completely agree with you sir. We must inculcate human values which is fast being forgotten by the modern generation.

  • nishi31 Dec 2012, 00:00 AM

    they dumped her n the government dumped her too...says Malala..very true.......shame India shame

  • farhat31 Dec 2012, 00:00 AM

    you are right sir, but on this issue, i prefer to keep mum n trying to protest according to my way by not celebrating Republic Day coz now its rape-public.

  • abhinav ranjan30 Dec 2012, 00:00 AM

    India, particularly Delhi, has a problem with rape and sexual violence against women. Here, it is apt to say (as per the article) that the Indian society is in crisis of law and the nation is talking about a change. In recent weeks the issue has changed from being a privately accepted fact to a public cause. Sir, u have nicely pointed out that the society had called for law on sexual assault to be reformed.

  • Nivedita Dixit30 Dec 2012, 00:00 AM

    Great views..and Great article... the brutal gang rape of the braveheart has reflected the plight of women in Delhi, poor laws and drawback in the system.. due to poor conviction rate in the rape cases, there is no fear among those who commit such heinous crimes.... there is a need to bring change...and be the change for sure......

  • Mrityunjay Singh 30 Dec 2012, 00:00 AM

    Sir, You have nicely underlined on the flaws in our educational system which is largely responsible for a sharp decline in moral values which is encouraging all forms of violence including crime against women. Views expressed in this article are really enlightening for us.

  • Anita Raj 30 Dec 2012, 00:00 AM

    great article sir.......we seriously need to bring some change in human behavior

  • Raghwendra 30 Dec 2012, 00:00 AM

    Very apt article sir. People do talk about human values but without giving a thought that what need do be done in this regard...... India seriously need to bring some changes in human behavior.

    Your article regarding this incident is really very fine. The educated mass has to discipline their mind , moral education is also very much needed. So that, the young generation should be more responsible and sincere towards our mothers, sisters and daughters of the country. The idea of giving proper respect to the ladies must be inculcated to the growing children of the society , so that, they be the responsible persons in future. They have to understand that they have come out of the womb of these ladies, so, the ladies are either mother or sister or daughter. They need respect, protection and appreciation. This idea has to be imbibed by every citizen of the country and for that government has to plan through Human Resource Development at an earliest opportunity. I really appreciate your concern and writing an impactful article about it. I bless you for that. Dr. R. Jha

    It is a fact that the whole nation is ashamed because of this serious incident which occurred in Delhi. The image of India got tarnished and the people of the world considered this as uncivilized country. This will hamper the tourism and the Indian Government can not explain to the world regarding the safety of women in any part of this country. It is also true that government is still not very serious to curb such type of incidents in future. We hear so much from the politicians explaining their grief about the incident but even after lapse of so many days , no concrete action has been taken by the government. On one side the victim is sent to Singapore for treatment and on another side Mr. Shinde is inviting Pakistani cricketers. This is how the home minister is concerned about the incident. Immediate legal action was needed to curb such incident in future strict law and strict vigilance during night is needed for the women who are working in night shifts. Every bus either private or government must be provided with 2 security officers from 6pm to 6 am. They should be given the magisterial power to arrest any person who misbehave with ladies. Unless the government is sincere and takes meaningful measures , it is impossible to check such incidents in any part of the country. Delhi is the capital of India, the strictness at this place is more needed , so that ladies can move more freely in society even during late night period. Dr R Jha

  • Sonakshi Kishore29 Dec 2012, 00:00 AM

    India is really in shock.... The 23-year-old didn'y want to die but she has to... just because the poor mentality of a section of society

  • Ashish Ranjan29 Dec 2012, 00:00 AM

    Yes, it is always worrying where the human values has gone? it is also true that sense of responsibility is fast depleting .... Policemen should be alert and such incidents should be handled by politicians .... Strict punishments seems to be the only avenue left to inculcate discipline !
