India is shaken from Kashmir to Kanyakumari!
Rarely, if ever, have so many people taken to the streets in so many different places for a single cause: It is an unstoppable momentum.
Newsrooms, television networks, newspapers, the news-reporters – they’re reeling from this horrific incident…
Parliamentarians, the prime minister, politicians, the police – everybody had something to say…
Every Indian: Man & Woman, young & old, school students-college goers to pricipals, house-wives to employed professionals… cry out for Justice…
Some demanding capital punishment to the perpetrators of the heinous crime;
Some call for the culprits to be stoned publicly;
Some want them beaten to death;
Some want them hanged in public;
Some demand to treat them with a third degree torture;
Others are chanting slogans against government’s apathy;
Some protesting against Delhi police laxity…
…the angry protesters are demanding justice for the 23-year-old paramedical student, who was stripped, beat, raped, and tortured by a gang of six men in a moving bus in Delhi on Sunday night before throwing them off the bus.
“It appears to be that a rod was inserted into her and it was pulled out with so much force that the act brought out her intestines along. That is probably the only thing that explains such severe damage to her intestines,” he said.
According to sources, one of the accused persons who were brought to the hospital for a medical examination on Tuesday confessed to having seen a rope-like object — likely her intestines — being pulled out of the girl by the other assailants on the bus. The sources said that the girl had bite marks on her body and has suffered severe injuries on her head and face as she was brutally attacked using an iron rod.

“There was permanent damage to her intestines, and with the intestines completely gone she will have to feed through intravenous fluids all her life. But that is secondary, our primary focus at the moment is to save her life,” said Dr BD Athani, Medical Superintendent, Safdarjung Hospital. (http://blogs.reuters.com)
Doctors at the Safdarjung hospital performed an elective abdominal surgery –gastronomy and duodenustromy — and surgeons had to remove her gangrenous small intestine. They said she has lost most of here intestine. The girl remains on ventilatory support.
Dr B D Athani, Medical Superintendent of the hospital, said: “Her abdomen has been cleaned and it has been closed today. Because most of the intestine, almost all portion, I would say, because of the initial loss and subsequent gangrene is not existent,”
Doctors said that Duodenum, which is the first part of the intestine, has been brought out of the stomach and a tube has been put into drain out whatever secretions are there. She is being fed intravenously. She is getting feeding as well as antibiotics and all her essential drugs through intravenous route.
‘Save me, I want to live’, says the Delhi gang rape victim
The furore and public anger on the Delhi Rape Capital issue has been well documented and amplified all over the media. What is increasingly evident, like an elephant in the room that nobody wants to disturb, is the fact that it is our very own undefined VVIPs and VIPs who are hogging security in all forms – huge barricaded habitats, blocked off roads, armored transportation and manpower, and more – at immense public cost.

Few responses from the Government:
Haryana police reach out to girls, place drop boxes in schools for complaints
One note-worthy comment: Another girl, Fatima, said, “We are told dress properly, don’t go out after seven, do this, not that… Are girls not free human beings? Who will tame the men who act like animals?”

Editor’s Note: All my thoughts, prayers & energy are with the young girl: May God bless her with a miraculous & beautiful long life.
A Question: What possible punishment, do you think, will put a FULL STOP to this particular crime?
