tne media cacophony over widespread atrocities on women in india has recently reached an unprecedented and ridiculous level.every petty incident from across every corner of the vast country is getting banner headlines and getting placement along top political news of the day.while it is important to address the issue of female safety urgently and comprehensively,the media noise about these violative incidents is shifting the governance engagement from more serious matters.a new rape law in ipc/crpc is in place after verma commission recommendation was legislated swiftly but middle class ,eager to watch themselves in media is holding flash sit-ins demanding capital punishment which is unjustifiable as in a soverign democracy,there cant be any mass or public trial.normal judicial process and it should be a fast track court for speedier justice,is enough to impose appropriate penalties.india is on global headlines for an unfortunate and damaging reason.
