I like to draw without thinking, there isn't anything wrong with that, is there?
I read news about Asifa's gang rape and murder case in India, it boils me to read such news again and again and again. I could also look away, but that doesn't mean it didn't happen. Are these men so lonely that they don't think what they are doing? Is this dystopia 'natural' and thus keeps recurring, while we have nothing else to do but read and get emotional about it? In which circumstances does a human make a decision to kill someone (in this case a child). Is it insanity? Is insanity our sickness?? I think it is hard for any human to kill another even in self-defense. Or maybe that is my imagination. We kill to eat. Is this doing somehow acceptable in the bigger scheme of things?
Google says the women to men ratio in India is around 940 for every 1000 men. Added to that an ever increase in unemployment, increasing poverty is bound to make any man worry about their own survival or at the least make life seem a never-ending lonesome grind. I empathize with men, we are all sexual creatures, and yes there aren't that many privileges being born in a third world nation. I have been chased by men, seen some eyes that don't conceive me as a human, not even an object. Company of a stray dog (that was very gentle) saved me from similar situation back in India, and I empathize with all of them. But it boils me today again to read about Asifa. And I hope to continue to draw colorful flowers, I no longer know what they stand for.
