Delhi gangrape anniversary: Revisiting the fateful Munirka bus stop

A girl and boy got on a bus with strangers in it at around 9:30 pm that night from the bus stop outside Munirka market, Delhi. They had just watched Life of Pi, like a lot of us, at a theatre at Saket, and had taken an auto there so they could catch a bus. Life would never remain the same for the boy. The girl is no more. Were still at that bus stop. #Delhi #ToWhatEffect #Rape #Delhi gangrape #women safety #Nirbhaya fund #16 December

While Prime Minister Modi was speaking at the podium inside the Sher-e-Kashmir Stadium, many residents of Srinagar were asked to stay indoors. There was a complete shutdown in most parts of the city.
