In His discourse on Thursday (3rd January 2013) at Shree Harigurugram, Shree Aniruddha spoke about the incidents that sent waves of shock in the entire country and stirred up strong protest. Every thinking and sensitive Indian citizen was pained. Bapu offered a firm and comforting reassurance, a relief to all His Shraddhavaan friends. I am sharing with all, this very important and ‘reassuring’ part of the discourse in this post.
“The last three or four days, in fact the whole of last week, T.V. channels and the news papers have been reporting horrific instances of how the woman’s honour is violated in this democratic nation of India, how she is reduced to a pathetic state… and as you saw these reports, many of you were furious although you were actually not in any way related to her (to the victim)… I heard it, I saw it and I am proud of it. You felt rage, you felt anger, you clenched your fists; I was glad. However, I wish to say one thing to all the women present here. May Nature make the distinction of gender – of the man and the woman; may their bodies differ accordingly in structure and anatomy but their destinies do not differ based on gender. Moreover in today’s times even men become victims of rape due to a certain kind of human tendency.
