DHRITRASTRA.

I hate to admit that I live in a country in which Government is so PROGRESSIVE with their ‪#‎SelfieWithDaughter‬ initiatives that they downsized the budget for Rape Crisis Center in a country where a woman is raped every 20 minutes.
And people are so CIVILIZED that they don't like to use the word RAPE in their dinning tables in front of the parents or the children. But say safely blind to the fact that every single day a woman they care about steps out of her house, there is no guarantee that she will return home because women are raped- DAY AND NIGHT, in PUBLIC PLACES AND IN PRIVATE PLACES, EVERYWHERE!
If there is one noun I want to use for Indians- government and people- it is-
DHRITRASTRA- the blind king from the epic poem The Mahabharata who choose to stay BLIND to the vile of his son and let the Draupadi get disrobed.
