Women vote share topped in the 2019 Ballot they are part of the democratic process more than ever before. Safety has turned gloomier, inspite new schemes, helplines, online apps, a dedicated ministry and National Commission. We choose to employ more office based managers, researchers and white collar academics to deal Violence on the ground like Rape, Incest, Battery and Sexual abuse of infants. As a result, same old coterie of Women who write Papers, do Press, make speeches in Metro Institutions get posts in Commissions and Numerous schemes floated by the Government. Publicity and props represent Women Safety not urgency and intention. Inspite tech credentials, office support, Women Safety Organizations could neither bring immediacy to the menace of DARKWEB "Sex-tortion" rackets, nor could take up increasing number of Suicides and Dowry Deaths in NRI's/Indians abroad. When Inefficiencies exist in pursuing both these desk based functions, let alone increasing streams of violence on the ground across Indian townships.
DARKWEB AND NRI DOWRY DEATHS
DARKWEB: Increasing number of Indian's are falling prey to "Sex-tortion" from the Darkweb, a haven of masked and false identities. Human Traffickers, Organ Traffickers, Child Sex Rings flourish, tempting innocent Indians with dreams and cash incentives. FEAR & SHAME are forcing Millions of Indian youth to Fall Prey. Youth who befriend on Tinder, dating sites, post on Social media walking into Blackmail traps & money extortion. In a already excessively surveilled Indian scenario, vibrant social media, blocking Darkweb access wont prove prudent as much educating Youth and hunting down sham call centres and online extortionists. More than 500 Indians fall prey to SEXTORTION DAILY.
NRI DOWRY DEATHS: An alarming rise in NRI deaths has rattled conscience of the Nation notably after the MANDEEP KAUR death in RICHMOIND USA. Abusers camouflaged behind Jurisdictional boundaries get shielded in play of different Cultural contexts and Western Police's crime priorities. A dead NRI's is a dead cause with Indian administrations, those living and undergoing harassment are not dealt with urgency as takes a low rank in the list of Bilateral issues. Women's Commissions, Safety Schemes, Consulates and embassies all paid by the same Indian Taxpayer are unable to co-odinate and apprehend offenders.
STATE, Non-PROFITS, POLICING:
State and the Non-Profit sector Trade barbs, slight each other while infants right from age of 5 to adolescents and women succumb to sexual aggression almost every day. Rural and Small town India never gets serviced beneath National Capital's VIP Security and Metro India's Institutional duties. Rape cases mount in plenty, Police listens and act only and only for well heeled, Policemen donot find it mandatory to assist victims, corridors of Judiciary & unscrupulous Lawyers strip victims to their last dime, privacy and remaining sanctity of life.
WORN OUT THINKING HATS:
Hired workers of Indian Foundations belong to Colleges of Social work, who tend to XEROX COPY Classical Classwork lessons, theories which they test in Urban Slums. Foundation leaders tend to befriend Western Funders, import social work designs which address Western society. Not Indian. We are made to believe Social work community is not self serving. Its fair to assume India's Social Sector reports more to the West, its Press than connect with the Local truth. Communities remain unconcerned to victims, at times even get hostile, call them "the provocateur".
a. Women Protection services need to be granted Premise Search and Rescue powers.
b. In a Nation where Religion and Caste are the only determinant for casting the Ballot, Faith based leaders and Organizations need to be given some accountability to shift age old Patriarchal mindsets.
c. Give equal funds and manpower to Difficult Terrain and Hard to reach Populations as much as Metro India.
d. Centralise Foreign University Intern appoint across NGO's and Government Organisations to build perspective of dowry harassment and other abuse women face in India, Online and abroad.
e. Utilise Nirbhaya funds to tackle Darkweb menace, NRI deaths, and Trainings of Religious leaders and Local Police to Bring overall sensitivity in Communities.
