Blame on others

When I first came to Pune from Punjab, I was like wow, i have come to the Education city (Oxford of the East) of India. My thoughts when I came to Pune was, that condition of women here will be much better as compared to the other cities. But with the passage i realized this is NOT the case. Infact even worse than other cities. If you have read my previous posts you will know how much I respect women.

At my place in Punjab, if something happens to a Girl/Female, we catch the culprit and don't blame the Girl coz she is the victim. But here (read Pune) whenever something happen, people put ALL the blame on the Girl/Female.

I remember few years back there was a rape in Symbiosis and Administration put all the blame on the Girl saying her dressing was NOT proper. They did not try to catch the culprit and put him behind bars but instead they force the dress code in the college.

Every now and then, Girls are Molested, Raped, Beaten up but then again, ALL the blame is on the Girl. I dont understand why instead of putting these culprits behind bars, we blame the women who actually are the victims?

I would love to hear your thoughts on this.
