The Delhi University Students Union seems to have resorted to low-lying methods for increasing their vote bank collection. The organisation set up with the sole purpose of helping the students and providing them with a ‘comfortable’ environment, seem to have abandoned girls of the university from the ‘student’ category . Are we still the child producing machine to our fellow university mates? Well it looks so, a girl from ip college for women was molested outside the arts faculty during a rally show for dusu . The girl, was in a rickshaw stuck in traffic due to the rally, when a group of boys herded and groped her.

The matter was immediately reported to the college authorities. The university procter was immediately contacted for the same. In the convention held by the university vc, dinesh singh the matter was brought up. The vc said he was extremely ashamed. The president of ip college for women, mansha was backed by all other colleges when she said “even dogs react to a situation like this, but your cops didn’t.” Referring to the unresponsive nature and inaction of the cops who were present at the scene but didn’t even crawl an inch to do anything. The vc in response was more like calming down the heated issue, saying that he will look into the matter personally, promising to check the duty postings himself and take strict action against them.

During the convention, the vc said they have already set up an inquiry to look into the matter and also will ban the rallies. The ban on the rallies came into immediate effect with national news channels declaring the vc’s ban.

Earlier in the day on saturday, a lot of security was placed outside ip college for women but the cops or the pcr van was nowhere to be seen post 1pm.

The principal supported her students and openly fought for them. If sources are to be believed the principal of the college will have a meeting with the dcp of north to discuss the security.

This incident has again proved the insensitivity of indian people who refused to help the girl. If you are a woman and studying in the renowned world of delhi university, do carry a pepper spray/deodorant for own safety for no one will come to your rescue in this highly insensitive country.

Also as the news of the ban spread all over the university, the abvp and the nsui called the ban ‘undemocratic’ but what would they call these daily molestation? An act to be awarded the paramveer chakra ?

The ABVP despite the ban carried out a rally two days later in the north campus for ‘women’s security’ or rather carried out their planned rally under the pretext of ‘women’s security’?

We hope this ban won’t be lifted citing political pressure and the dcp will take the necessary actions against the cops found guilty.

About the girl who was molested, having met her she has put up a brave front and is acting all normal, not panicking at all. She is not fighting for herself but what about the rest of us girls? It could have been any one of us there or somewhere else.

We salute the girl for he resilience and hope the ban won’t be lifted, a ban cannot bring in all the change yet it’d be further insult to the girl if it does.

To every single woman out there we’re not an sex object that men toy with! We’re human who happen to belong and stand high in the same society where they stand because of us woman. Take pride in being a woman, know & fight for your rights.


A matter this popular, is not just a matter today,
For some its a debate, and for some merely child’s play,
For some it is the road to Damascus,
And for some it might be another usual ruckus.

This freedom of expression is “ELEPHANTINE”,
Makes even the most idle man break his confines.
So why should you and I stay behind,
When youth related issues are left for us to unwind.

Reservation for girls in ‘the’ University Of Delhi,
Is a big question mark on the gender inequality.
For India’s education system, to raise the bar,
An unbiased view is the need of the hour.

If seats are reserved for girls, like they are today,
It might enlighten the future of women, which otherwise is grey.

Some are deceased through female feticide,
While others are victimized in the vice of burning the bride
Some are persecuted to sexual slavery,
And all such iniquities make women all the more fiery.

Cogent Sex ratio is NOT an Indian scenario,
And domestic violence and suppression aren’t just negligible trivia.
Right to Education is the only groundbreaking reform
Through which the fate of women can be transformed.

Blind reservation is not what is required,
Stringent reservation is all that is desired.

The ill effects of this cannot also be disregarded,
With a thought of being deprived, boy-clan might be bombarded.
Reservation might also dilute the spirit of competition,
And might encourage callous tactics to access education.

The pros and cons outweigh each other
And that is the sole reason why we should bother.

And rightly so I conclude,
Reservation for EQUALITY and Not Reservation for SUPERIORITY
Can make the India’s future more mighty.
