This is an article I wrote about some recent events in India. A bit aside from our main subject, but as it is about the indian society it is somehow related. Chinmoy grew up in this culture where free women have to fight every day for their rights.
Nirbhaya was a physiotherapy intern in Delhi. On December 16th, 2012, she went to the movie theater with one of her male friends to see "The Life of Pi". They took a bus to get back home. The two friends were in the bus with six Indian men, including the driver. One of them asked her if they were married. She answered "This is none of your business". This was the fatal answer. For those average Indian men, she turned into a non-human, slutty women.
