A satirical sketch on rapes and sex in India - very well written and presented for a subject matter so sensitive.
I have been through countless comments on youtube and other public forums, where "the Indian-culture-proponents" think that rapes are a direct consequence of India's exposure to the Western culture (Although I don't even believe in the existence of anything such as the "Western culture". The West is quite diverse and an amalgamation of all possible cultures). Just because they are more open about sex and don't wait for a license to have it, doesn't mean they go around raping anyone they want. Of course, you can find people gawking at/ogling you if you wear something revealing here, but they won't pounce at you just for that. It's absolutely nonsensical when people say that women are themselves responsible for sexual assaults and trust me I know many Indians who have lived in the United States for almost all of their lives and they still strongly believe in this theory. If that were true, how would you justify sex-mongers devouring two-year/two-month/two-day olds in India? And why is sex such a taboo? The Kamasutra and Khajuraho speak volumes of how sexually advanced we were in the ancient times, so what happened to us? Women are forced to wear veils in front of older men in the family; what exact point are we trying to make here - Men are perverts and you must hide yourself, even your family won't spare you, right?
