A definitive guide to preventing rapes



The CBI, India’s highest investigative agency, has been in pursuit of truth since 1963. An unbiased agency that knows no allegiance and is impervious to political pressure, it is every common and uncommon man’s only hope for justice. So, when its revered chief Ranjit Sinha, in a rare show of candour makes a profound statement about rapes and asks women to enjoy if they can’t stop it, one has no choice but to sit up and take his advice seriously.

Dear women, it’s time you started treating rape like our law enforcement agencies do, as a harmless extra-curricular activity. It’s almost legal, just like Mr Sinha would have betting be treated. As such it was your damn fault that you got raped. Ask any respectable police officer and he’ll tell you when a woman is not covered from head to toe, she wants men to rape her. So, when you venture out of the house for work or pleasure, you are clearly being adventurous. And if you’re not wearing a sack, you are obviously asking for trouble.

If you are stupid enough to get raped, be prepared to be called a slut who did not get paid. According to Delhi Police, expert on sexual crimes, 90% of rape cases are mere business dealings. So, if you were 'really' raped, you would never complain for fear of media and society. Only ‘loose’ women with dubious reputations go to Police stations to file complaints against sexual assaults. Nice women quietly go home and cry.

According to a Policeman’s code of conduct for women – nice women – certainly do not consume alcohol. When a man drinks, he turns into a sex-crazed Neanderthal, incapable of controlling himself. Conclusively, women who drink and place themselves in the company of men having a drink are sluts looking for trouble.

It is a known fact that no respectable lady gets raped in India. Even an underworld don will not like to touch a woman of respect. And if you are in Bharat, no man will touch you even with a barge pole. It’s because in RSS’s Bharat Mahaan, every woman is treated like a cow and every cow is your Mother. Therefore every woman is treated like a mother. Get it?


As such you women have this habit of overreacting over minor discomforts. Is it that poor man’s fault that you were just out there, looking so temptingly helpless, walking all alone with no armed bodyguards to protect your honour! Do you honestly expect a man to behave respectably and not grab opportunity when it presents itself to him? Did you really have to recoil in horror when he approached you menacingly! Men are not used to hearing no from a woman. It then becomes their duty to teach every wayward woman a lesson they will never forget. Didn’t your elders tell you that rape is basically punishment for crossing certain limits! “One has to abide by certain moral limits. If you cross this limit you will be punished."

If you still want to behave unreasonably, you always have this magic mantra to put an end to your so called agony. Just look entreatingly at your tormentor, remove his hand gently from your throat and whisper – Bhaiya. He will immediately fall at your feet and beg for forgiveness.

If that doesn’t work, you can always fall back on Kiwi defence lawyer Keith Jefferies’ simple but brilliant solution to prevent rape. "All you have to do is close your legs... it's as simple as that."

But in my opinion, you should do what Mr Sinha has advised. Sit back and enjoy the act. After all rape is just fun sex and not an assertion of violence and power, the ultimate act of hostility. When a man mutilates a woman’s genitals, strangles her so that she cannot scream, leaves bite marks all over an 8 month old baby, what’s not there to enjoy. Why deny a man the simple pleasures of indulging in unbridled passion by putting up an unnecessary fight!

  2. It reminds me of the video that Kalki had made recently to promote awareness. Poor her, most people thought she was being straightforward. It isn't her fault that people don't get sarcasm.
    Neither yours. And this growing collection of all-knowing people who have got it all right in their heads on methods to prevent rapes, we'll you cannot just ignore them, but you cannot listen to them either.

    And for the comment above, even men do get raped in some societies, but that's not the point. Rather than thinking of ways to rid the society of this plague, the other person is dangling the same carrot in front of the perceived weaker section to rise in rebellion. What is this, Competition? The ones who do it would not care about their own selves. Ask a responsible father, if he is not just as scared as any woman for his daughter, or a brother?

    1. Anshul, such generalizations are true only for a section of the society irrespective of their gender. What I'm trying to convey is the insensitivity of our authorities towards a crime like rape.

  5. Now that Mr. Sinha had enlightened us with this simple solution, victims of gang-rape need not fight. They can enjoy the act or close their legs while strangers take turn. It is so simple actually. If only women listened to him.

    1. Apparently Mr Sinha's quote was twisted out of context to create an outrage. But that doesn't take away from the fact that our lawmakers still do not consider rape as a serious crime

    2. I heard him live. Yes, he was not talking about rape. He was talking about the pros and cons of legalizing betting. But he used this analogy which gives us a glimpse of what he thinks.

  7. Imagine asking someone to enjoy something that fills the victim with revulsion and disgust. As for Keith Jefferies' comment people in India will be shocked and surprised at the goings on in NZ recently. You might be aware of it in Australia, Purba.

  8. Frankly, I go blame women for whatever sexual deprivation that they inflict unto themselves. Hear me out why. First of all, whose job is it to do grocery shopping in a household? The woman's. Who cooks in a house? The woman. And who serves Maggi on the dinner table? Yes, the woman, again. Now, since Chowmein causes rape, WHO do you think is responsible for rape in this country?

    1. WOMEN! Say no to your Mom's cooking and make India a safer place for women. But if women start feeling safe, won't they get cocky and demanding?

  9. Yes, in our society, it is always the victim who is to blame. I think, I don't even wish to dignify his comment by commenting. It is so sad that misogyny runs so deep and even among the elite.

  15. Great piece. That is all I'd say about the post but the message in it is extremely painful and infuriating. What is wrong with us, all of us ?? We're so jaded in our moral superiority and so called "faith" that it has become an open season for all. Pardon me for writing but Saala sab chalta hai ka kya ye matlab hai ki har cheez chalegi ?

  16. Close your legs !! Brightest idea. But, a lil bird told me that our scientists(a females) in DRDO are working hard to come up with a Device, which will produce an electric surge of 11000 Volts as soon it comes in contact with a FOREIGN ALIEN. It will be in Tampoon Shape and can be hidden easily by a woman. Electric surge will turn that ALIEN into fine ash which can be used to make bricks. ;)

  18. Mrs Purba Ray - http://edition.cnn.com/interactive/2013/11/world/india-rape/?sr=sharebar_twitter You may also like to read this piece by Moni Basu.While Indian men and Indian system are definitely at Fault, rape crime statistics for a Country like USA are equally shocking. So I wonder as India makes some progress on economic front, we may have nothing in near future to cheer about as far as crime against women is concerned.

    We all should come up with Solutions to make society better for Indian women and men.

    1. Just finished reading the article and I couldn't help but admire Moni Basu's tenacity and her courage to speak about her own ordeal as a collegiate. And I couldn't agree more with Meshram's sentiments "Had it happened today I"m confident they would have at least gotten 10 years in jail."

      Thank you for sharing this link.
