My Two Cents’ Worth for the Candle March

Marching with candles along with the massive crowd seems to be much easier than to go out of our way, give our precious time, answer all the police and hospital enquiries, spoil our clothes, do all the running around and ultimately what we earn is “Getting into trouble for life” and this is the sole reason people stay miles away from getting into difficult cases because even the police are corrupted. You will not even realize when your act of kindness backfires and becomes a cause of YOUR distress, here breeds the policy of “Safe Play” which has always been in vogue for ages together.

The apprehensions people harbor in their hearts needs to be catered first and healed. There are many, in fact most of them who want to help the helpless but they restrict themselves owing to the pragmatism of the harassment post assistance. Candle Marches have now become an event to show the country’s support and concern for the people who cry for justice in this fraudulent place, who look upon innocents as the culprits and the culprits are on eternal parole. As a matter of fact, it is because of the strong joint support from the fellow countrymen – the perpetrators of Jessica Lal and Nirbhaya case were crucified.
Had there been no Candle March, had there been no public agitation, had there been no pressure on the moral monitors, had there been no human chains formed, had there been no pressure on the politicians, had there been no demands on the law enforcers, I am sure things would have been absolutely different at present.
Where there is goodness, there is evil,
Where there is darkness, there is light,
Where there is doubt, there is faith
Everyone cannot be present everywhere so these marches work as platforms to express our sensitivity, our respect, our oneness, our moral support to the victim and the family. This support indeed gives a lot of strength, boosting and courage to fight for justice.  
Of course, I wouldn’t deny that there are plenty of phony enthusiasts who merely take pictures, show off on the social media circle, are public attention seekers, want to market themselves and especially their organizations / movies / products etc. But this big wide world cannot be devoid of such hypocrites and criminals, who believe in that if they fake it, they will make it. A lot of them do but you know what you are and there is no escape to it.
India, boasts of a democratic country though the democracy is not judiciously or wisely or completely utilized. Many keep shut fearing the society insults, losing honour and are more bothered about their self image.
I would quote Michael Jackson here,
“Heal the World,
Make it a better place,
For you and for me and for the entire human race”.

People conveniently ignore a girl in distress or an accident victim on the road, but would enthusiastically march with candles in hand for a cause. Why? #Doublefaceofsociety
