I always think why it is so that some boys are so virtuous and ethical when it comes to their sisters. Are they so possessive? They are decent humans with the ladies of their family but simultaneously they turn out to be the beast for others...How ironical it seems to be...a typical stereotype. It is because heartstrings escape our wild thoughts, we become captive of the relations we are born to fulfill. The bonding we are pertained to, arrives as our weakness. I think the concept and perception of rakshabandhan should be changed. Girls should tie rakhi around the wrist of their brothers asking for the assurance that they will respect every girl... Because nobody ever harms their sister irrespective of what they wear, how they walk and other parameters. In spite of the modernization, we girls are always victimized and become prey to the cheap mentality and desperate men. Stringent actions are to be taken, laws are to be reprimanded, integrity is required. Humanity and generosity is the cry of the hour.
