RAPE – A blood chilling, sordid word. An assault on the most sensitive and sacred part of a woman’s body, her sexual identity and Honour.Yet several men violate it with impunity, as though the woman’s prestige is of no value, and it is their birthright as males to force themselves onto every woman they chance upon? But why does Society allow them to get away with such cruel and hideous crimes? That is because of the belief that aggresive overpowering of women is an innate, conscious or subconscious tendency of men, due to the Macho Male trait inherent in every Man.
But is the urge to rape a natural drive in males, impossible to control under certain circumstances, or Not necessarily so? NO ! Not At All ! For Not All Men Go Out To Rape. Why? Are Gentlemanly and Decent Men Less Manly than Rapists and Ruffians ?
To know the answer, we have to DEVIATE FROM the oft-beaten path of conducting SURVEYS in COUNTRIES with the HIGHEST incidence of RAPE and interviewing Rapists to understand the minds of men who outrage women’s Modesty and the attitudes of their Societies which make them think that they are justified in committing the atrocities.
INSTEAD, similar SURVEYS need to be conducted in COUNTRIES supposed to have the LOWEST number of cases of SEXUAL ASSAULT such as Georgia, Armenia and Greece, and study the Social milieu, Status of women and the General Attitudes towards women of those societies as well as of their men, to understand WHY most MEN in THOSE SOCIETIES or countries DON’T RAPE !
One of the main problems that People with hearing impairment face is to hear and follow the conversation of others. Because of this, they cannot partake in group talks, and as a result, feel left out and isolated.
Likewise, they at a greater danger than blind persons to be knocked down by other vehicles on busy roads, as blind people are noticed immediately, and therefore protected by others, whereas the hearing impaired are not perceived so easily, and are therefore more liable to accidents than the Blind .
What is needed to help them assimilate with those having normal hearing power is an electronic device that can translate Spoken words or
Audio Messages into Visual Form, i.e. either as typed messages or
Sign language, on a screen, to help Hearing Impaired(Deaf) people to ‘See’ the conversation of those with normal hearing power, and Vice versa,
viz. translating the message conveyed through Sign language by deaf- mute persons into Voice message.
It is heard there ARE such gadgets already, but are used only for hi- tech work, so simplified gadgets of that type need to be produced for common people, to make their life and mingling with others smoother.

Neither the Traditional East nor the Progressive and Technologically Advanced West is Best by itself alone !
The Best place would be that in which Good Cultural Values like Modesty, as also Close Family and Social Relationships cherished by the Eastern world are not a Traditional Fetish, but go hand in hand with the Broad mentality and Personal Freedom of the Western World – Where young Lovers are not Murdered for marrying outside the Caste or Religion, in the name of Family Honour, and girls are not killed, abandoned, or deprived of the Basic Human Rights like Education, simply for being females, as in Rural India, and some other Eastern communities in the Middle East,
but Where, at the same time, there is a sense of moderation and discretion in behaviour, as well as serious bonding and commitment in personal relationships, especially in Sexual Relationships, among people, which is sadly vanishing in Western Societies, in the name of Individual Liberty!
