There was a news that a state government has laid down dress code for employees. Though I agree that one should be dressed in formals for office otherwise it causes distraction but feel that this kind of order shows two things. First being failure of all of us, society as whole, to inculcate right sense of dressing for work and second that said government failed to change mindset of males to look at women with respect but is infringing in personal choice. It should rather be inculcated in seniors to not only set an example but to politely advise the one who dresses for a party rather than office in one to one basis.

Defence lawyer of Delhi gang rape case is supposed to have said that if his daughter has an affair and indulges in pre-marital sex he would burn her. If he has same attitude about his son also, then I am with him but if NO then it is people like him who create inequlity between boys & girls thus encourage young boys to do whatever they wish to, including rape, with assurance that they will get away with it.

A girl had courage to lodge complaint of molestation, true or not be judged in court, against a famous person and his prominent lawyer has started character assassination of that girl.

Over a period I have noticed that for any disturbance or riots it is the officers who get the blame but don’t we know that they are nothing but tools in the hands of politicians in power? Are they given a free hand to handle to situation as deemed fit to defuse? NO, they have to seek permission from so called government to take adequate strong steps. So who should be rightly blamed or removed?

A lot of schemes are being launched in a rush with a lot of fanfare that these are for the benefit of EWS or people who are BPL but is it not just for the sake of votes? Has anyone thought of financial implication which will lead to either these schemes dying natural death or help someone pocket major portion of funds by some way or the other. NRGES is a good example for this.

A number of politicians as well as some bureaucrats have been saying that what have soldiers done to deserve honour while laying down life as that is their duty and that they are paid for it. OK, but do you do your duty honestly for which you are paid? Do they realize that person joins Armed Forces not only for pay but has respect for the country to defend it from those who wish to harm it? Will they lay down their lives if they see someone trying to harm the country?

I have earlier written about those who break rules while driving. We all want others to follow rules but do we ourselves? How many of us avoid stopping at traffic light over zebra crossing meant for pedestrians?

Well, enough for the day.

Every nugget of information is true. The one about some men and the way they stare at women hungrily - can't help shuddering at the thought but you are right. Educate the sleazes - don't take away someone else's freedom of choice.

The buck stops here... with self. Everything good or bad begins with a person.. the self. It has been often said that the bad flourish because good people do nothing about it.

'Doing nothing' starts a long way back ----- to our birth when our parents didn't teach us well about discipline and doing the right thing... when our teachers look the other way when seeing injustice inside the classroom... when governments or our church leaders preach the double standard by the way they live or conduct their lives... and many more other inconsistencies of character and beliefs.

Change, for good if so desired, begins with the self.

Thank you, Jack, for your very informative post.

Blessings to you and your family.

Thanks for your supportive views. We need to inculcate habit right from childhood to follow rules. Take care


Welcome to my space.How I wish we pay attention to teach such persons to respect women! It is really so shameful. I will try to visit your space a s a p. Take care


So true, it is WE who have to start with SELF to change the situation. We need to intervene when something wrong is being committed. We also need to inculcate right habits from childhood of our children. Thanks for supportive view. Take care
