Women’s Day
 
Well today is the International Women’s Day. Bravo! Great! We are proud to be women today. But
has the male society really done something to make us feel proud?This is a burning question that many young ladies ask their male society.
Here’s how they honour us,
On 21
st
October 2012, Chanchal Paswan and her sister were sleeping four men came to their houseand starting demanding sex from the girls. Upon refusal their faces were smeared with acid.On 16
th
November 2012, a couple goes home in a private bus in Saaket, Delhi and she is brutallygang raped by 4 men in a bus on duty. She was raped and one of the men inserted a rusted iron rodin her vagina causing that only 5 % of her intestines were in her body. This was so brutal that evendoctors had not seen such a case of brutality. That girl is no more in this world. And guess what theculprits are not getting death sentence because one of them happens to be worker at Rahul
Gandhi’s residence. Wow such an honour to that girl who is no more now.
 The verdict came out to be that all the four men were not found guilty. Hello? Excuse me? This ishow the male dominated society treats us.The result is that ask your daughter to wear proper clothes. They are the one to make us have sexwith them. I mean hello.What if a famous woman enterprenuer was raped by the servants working in her house. Well in thatcase it will be seen that the servants get the death sentence.
Three Accused in Delhi Gang Rape Case to Plead NotGuilty 
 Anindito Mukherjee/European Pressphoto Agency
 A view of the Saket district court inNew Delhi.
 
 A day before the Delhi gang rape case is likely to be handed over to a new fast-track court fortrial, a legal defense team for the accused seemed to be coming together on Wednesday. Twolawyers said they had been retained by some of the suspects and planned offer not guilty pleas fortheir clients.
 
 A defense team emerged despite protests earlier this week that saw thousands of lawyers in the
local bar association refuse to represent the suspects because of what they called the “heinous”
nature of the Dec. 16 gang rape of a young woman, who later died from her injuries.
Manohar Lal Sharma, who ordinarily practices law in India’s Supreme Court, said on Wednesday 
that three of the five suspects in the case had signed papers authorizing him as their defensecounsel. The three accused are Ram Singh, Mukesh Kumar and  Akshay Thakur.Mr. Sharma said
 
he was waiting to read the police charge sheet before formulating a defense strategy. He did say that he intended to scrutinize the thoroughness of the police investigation in the case, saying it
 was “not done properly.”
 However, it remained unclear if Mr. Sharma ultimately would represent the accused. Anotherlawyer, V.K. Anand, has also said he is representing Ram Singh, the driver of the bus in which the23-year-old victim was raped and assaulted for 45 minutes before being stripped and thrown outon a highway. Mr. Anand said he had spoken with Mr. Singh for an hour and a half on Tuesday inTihar Jail, where the accused are being held, and was convinced of his innocence.
“He should definitely be represented,” Mr. Anand said. “The reason is, whatever is coming in the
media, whatever stories are coming from other corners and sources are
absolutely different.”
 
Both lawyers said they would hand in their appointment letters, known as “vakalatnamas,” to a
magistrate on Thursday.On Monday, shortly before the five suspects appeared in a south Delhi court, Mr. Sharma andMr. Anand informed the court about their offer to represent the accused during a chaoticcourtroom scene in which other lawyers tried to shout them down. The disarray prompted themagistrate to order journalists, lawyers and others not connected to the case to leave thecourtroom.
The magistrate, Namrita Aggarwal, issued an order declaring that the inquiry and trial will be “incamera,” permitting only those directly involved to enter the court. On the request of the special
public prosecutor, Rajeev Mohan, the magistrate also prohibited journalists from printing orpublishing any information about the proceedings.In passing the order, Judge Aggarwal argued that the crowds pressing inside the courtroom made
it “completely impossible” to function. She also said that the police
eared for the safety of theaccused.The matter will come up again on Thursday, when the magistrate is expected to hand the caseover to a trial judge in a so-called fast-track court. The Indian police and judiciary are usually notorious for their slow response and delays. But given the national outrage over this case, the
 
authorities have acted swiftly, especially after hundreds of students and women’s rights activists
took to the streets day after day for nearly two weeks to demand justice for the victim.Journalists and others who are not connected with the case will not be allowed inside thecourtroom. On Wednesday, a district judge rejected a petition challenging the order that declared
the proceedings to be private, ruling that the magistrate’s assessm
ent of the situation in thecourtroom on Monday could not be questioned or reviewed.
The judge also said that under India’s criminal procedure code, court proceedings in cases of rapeare required to be held “in camera” not just during the trial but also i
n the inquiry stage.

Why is the chief minister not coming to my rescue now,"the victim asked Tuesday.The four to five police personnel were caught on camera assaulting the young victim and her aged father after she reportedly complained to police against some taxi and truck drivers harassing her near a marriage palace inTarn Taran district, 280 km from here.The incident was recorded by a bystander on his mobile phone on Sunday and was aired by TV news channels.
