Talking Rape In India

Michel Montecrossa‘s New-Topical-Song for Women‘s rights, freedom and security

Of kidnap and gang-rape and murder I will sing,
of a 23 years young woman in a bus in Delhi, o listen, friends:
Capital punishment demanded. Is it the answer?
The judiciary system failed in protecting women.
There’s nationwide outrage
shouting: “Punish the police!”

The young woman died of her injuries.
There is pressure for change of laws,
pressure for faster court reaction
and change of attitude towards women.
Anger and fury drives the young India.
Flaws in the system are so obvious.
It’s the hour of awakening to

equality, respect, liberty and strong
recognition of the all-important
economic, social, cultural and ethical work-power
of women serving the life of the nation.
Rape is as if you rape your own mother
and your mother did not bring you to the world
for hurting her so much, o Lord!
