  1. India is emerging as the epicenter of rape culture in the world, all women and girls, tourists, journalists, law interns, small dalit children are always facing the threat of rape. rapists are roaming freely in search of their victims and there is no doubt that soon we will become a nation of violent people who can rape anybody at any time. Shameful & barbaric, with no end to this highly underreported crime. Soon our courts will be dealing with only rape cases and police will be left with no other job than to register FIRs and investigate the rape cases. Our society is in a turmoil and some sense should prevail on the custodians of Law and order to control this barbarism against the females.
