Delhi Gang Rape Victim (Damini) Cremated

The body of a woman whose gang rape provoked protests and rare national debate about violence against women in India arrived back in New Delhi early on Sunday and was quickly cremated at a private ceremony.

Ruling party leader Sonia Gandhi arrived at the airport when the plane landed and Prime Minister Mannmohan Singh’s convoy was also there. New Delhi’s chief minister, Sheila Dikshit, and the junior home minister, R P N Singh, coming out of the crematorium, the witness said.

Security in the capital remained tight after authorities, worried about the reaction to the news of her death, had on Saturday deployed thousands of policemen and closed some roads and metro stations.Protesters still gathered, in New Delhi and other cities, to keep the pressure on Singh’s government to get tougher on crime against women. Last weekend, protesters fought pitched battles with police.

    But Democracy is a good thing !

    The Girl is dead
    India’s darling daughter is dead
    But democracy is alive
    And democracy is a good thing.

    Every year
    21,000 mothers , daughters , sisters get raped,
    Countless others burnt to dowry-death;
    Poor starve or, shelter less
    Freeze on footpath;
    On each rainless day
    A hundred farmers commit suicide
    But democracy is alive
    And democracy is a good thing

    Each year , 1,600,000 children die of malnutrition
    Even as millions of tons of grain
    Rot under sun and rain
    Thousands die of tobacco smoke
    But democracy is alive
    And democracy is a good thing

    Hundreds die in floods
    Few thousands die crossing railway tracks
    A million children die working for 18 hours
    In dark / dungeon slave factories
    Living on a slice of bread and glass of dirty water
    But democracy is alive
    And democracy is a good thing

    Where else but in a democracy
    Do people have a right
    To vote / select their own Masters
    Who , for the next five years, will

     Silence them

     Torture them

     Maim them

     Loot them

     Rape them

     Murder them

    Cry, Beloved Motherland

    And don’t stop crying

    Till your tears sweep these tyrants into the Arabian Sea !

    Add your verse here :

    • No conspiracy Theories….BUT So many questions still remain unanswered:

      1. Did the doctors first approach the Government, seeking to move her to Singapore? If not, what exactly prompted the Cabinet to discuss the possibility of moving her to Singapore under such conditions?

      2. If the NDTV report is to be believed, the Home Minister wanted to move her to a country with “liberal organ transplant laws”. How different are the laws different from India? Why don’t we have “liberal organ transplant laws?”

      3. Was the family consulted about this move, or were they coerced? Who spoke to the family regarding this move? Doctors or Government officials?

      4. Who accompanied the girl to Singapore? Was anyone from the family not allowed to go, even if they wished to?

      5. Was the arrival of the body at 3:30 am in the night pre-planned? Who in the family approved this move?

      6. Were the family members given enough time to grieve with the body?

      7. Why was the funeral rushed through? Why was the already traumatized family of the girl put through further trauma?

      8. Despite knowing that Hindu customs do not allow for funerals before sunrise, who pushed the family into completing it before sunrise? Police? If so, whose orders were they following?

      9. Some reports indicate that the fiance of the girl, who fought with the goons was not able to attend the funeral. Is this true?

      10. This report says – “The electronic media was not present as Broadcast Editors’ Association had asked news channels to refrain from covering the funeral.” Was this a voluntary decision or was it prompted by the Government ?

  6. whoah this blog is magnificent i love reading your articles. Keep up the good work! You know, many people are looking around for this information, you could aid them greatly.

  7. I have come across that these days, more and more people are increasingly being attracted to surveillance cameras and the issue of images. However, like a photographer, you must first commit so much time period deciding the exact model of video camera to buy along with moving from store to store just so you may buy the least expensive camera of the trademark you have decided to pick out. But it will not end there. You also have to think about whether you should purchase a digital digital camera extended warranty. Thanks a bunch for the good points I accumulated from your web site.
