On the night of Sunday, December 16, 2012, a 23 year old paramedical student from Dehra Dun was gangraped and brutally tortured on a moving bus in New Delhi. Almost four days since then, she has undergone five surgeries and is battling for her life. An outraged nation is demanding there be stringent punishment for rape. But as they say, charity begins at home and with that in mind, I am sharing what I earlier shared as a status message on Facebook:

"In light of the recent incidents -- I want to have a son (biological or adopted). I want to have a little boy and I want to teach him how to be a man -- how to not kick dogs or throw stones at them, how to not break his toys. I want to tell him that being sensitive and shedding tears is not a silly thing, that it's okay if he wants to sit at home and paint or read. When he is old enough, I will show him a few birthing videos, scar him for life and tell him that some woman went through all that pain to make him and that he needs to respect every woman he comes across in his life because they all have a power he doesn't and that he should forever be thankful, for without them, he wouldn't be."
