Crime Delhi/NCR India Life

Why is Delhi the Rape Capital of the Country?

Mili Sharma ponders over what makes Delhi the capital of this heinous crime. We’ve been hearing/reading/watching a lot about the rape incidents off late. I’ve been trying to figure out two things – 1) why does Delhi/NCR ranks no.1 in rape incidents as compared to southern India 2) who are these rapists.  After following the news through different media and talking to the people around me, I got an answer to this.

If you’re from Delhi, you’ll know the expression – a scowl, stating ‘don’t mess with me’, a prized possession to be kept as carefully the latest smart phone, iPod/Pod and sneakers.

5 Reasons Why Aam Aadmi Party’s Civil Disobedience Is Justified

Allegations against Arvind Kejriwal and his party that his entire fast was a drama for political gains are gaining stead. Here are five reasons why even if the entire thing was for gains still the movement is justified. Firstly on sheer numbers, AAP claimed they got 9.6 lakh people to sign the letter of protest.
