Indian mindset is to blame.
That a woman was molested is news.
That a woman was raped is read as news.
An obscene - or a kiss on stage
Will call for attack and protest all over.
Consensual sex is raided and punished.
Indoor rapes are ignored and forceful sex
By marriage has got societal sanction.
Husband's beating is domestic problem.
To kill a girl caught in love with someone
Low in caste is one's family honour.
People gather to be moral police
But ignore to stop sexual offense.
Indian mind-set promotes sexual crimes.
