Letting alone the in-depth analysis and detailing of Unnao Rape-Case, if we just see what the surface has to offer us, even that bit shakes us to our core. It takes your conscious in a situation of distrust on the very idea of humanity. What UP MLA Kuldeep Singh Sengar (accused in Unnao-rape case) did, not just raped the very dignity of that woman, but it raped us of our collective conscience as a society on the whole. And the life sentence that he has been blessed with is a further way to keep him and his alike MLA’s courage ablaze!

All that a common man can comprehend out of this case, is the fact that there’s no room for his justice, especially when you belong to the female community. All that one can wish for is to have a little less loss of life or property! All that one can wish is a little more justifiable punishment to the criminal! But when it comes to true justice, the system seems mouth folded along with a blindfold on eyes! Why? Because they are powerful and one cannot mess with such an authority! As happened in Unnao-rape case.

All that Sengar got is a life sentence and no death sentence for the barbarity and devastation he caused to the girl. Someone’s entire family got devastated and zapped and all she could do was sit paralyzed with a stoned heart due to the system. 

Where have we reached as a social community, as a humanitarian community??? All that we are is a mere buffoon to the system of criminals, mere buffoons, isn’t it??? 

Hats off to every courageous girl who has out mastered the art of living in such a suffocating and succumbing monstrous realm! 
Hats off to the Unnao-rape case victim!!!

Salute to you all💚
