In Memoriam: Suzette Jordan on her battle to stop being the ‘Park street rape victim’

The journey back from being 'the Park Street rape victim' to becoming Suzette Jordan once again has been tortuous. Rape makes news but the grueling aftermath often wreaks a whole other trauma. #Barasat rape #Discrimination against women #Kolkata #Mamata Banerjee #Park Street rape victim #Suzette Jordan #VeryCloseUp #Violence against women

Don’t touch ‘our’ women: Dimapur lynching was never about justice

The Nagaland lynching is held up as the example of quick justice rather than a cautionary tale. #Dimapur #India #InMyOpinion #Lynching #mob justice #Nagaland #Rape #US #vigilante

What will people say: Why India is up in arms over the Dec 16 BBC documentary

India’s Daughter is doing something that Indians fear. It’s washing our dirty laundry in public. India’s Daughter might as well have been called India’s Shame. #BBC #BCC documentary on rape #December 16 gangrape #India's Daughter #Leslee Udwin #Nirbhaya #Rape in India #Sexual violence in India

BBC documentary on Delhi gangrape: Why outrage? Mukesh Singh’s excuses are hardly unique

Our outrage becomes a way to blind ourselves to the larger outrage of a culture and society that is quick to blame the victim for what she wore, what she ate, and when she went out. Singh might be unrepentant but at least he is paying for his crimes. The rest of us so cavalier about blaming the victim for bringing it on themselves escape unscathed. #16 December #BBC #December 16 gangrape #Delhi rape #Mukesh Singh #Rape #Rape in India #Rapist #Sexual violence in India

What censor board members want: Slash Haider, no films for adults, only ‘family’ films

Thanks to the Indian Express we now know what the current avatars on the Censor Board think about art, freedom of expression and culture. And to be honest we would rather have remained in the dark. #Bollywood #CBFC #Censor Board #Central Board of Film Certification #George Baker #Haider #Indian films #Pahlaj Nihalani

More yawn than firestorm: Essar ‘scandal’ is hardly a Radiagate

But more than anything else the current reaction to the Essar scam shows us how inured we have become to scams. #BJP Chief Nitin Gadkari #Digvijaya Singh #Essar #Essargate #HowThisWorks #India #Indian Express #Niira Radia #Politics

The great Rahul Gandhi leave: Five questions to help him ‘reflect’ on the future of Congress

It’s not difficult to see what ails the Congress. It’s just surprising Rahul needs to go away for a few weeks to see the writing on the wall that has been staring at him in the face election after election. #Congress #India #Lok Sabha elections 2014 #Narendra Modi #Politics #Priyanka Gandhi #Rahul Gandhi #sabbatical #UPA

Who will arrest the police? Don’t just blame the beedi baron for the security guard’s death

The story of Adakkaparambil Muhammad Nisham has all the elements we are used to. The rich spoiled tycoon used to getting away with everything perhaps even murder is almost a standard trope these days. But it’s shocking even in a country where life, especially of the poor, routinely feels cheap. #Asaram Bapu #Chandrabose #Jessica Lal #Kerala #Mohammed Nisham #NewsTracker #ThatsJustWrong
