It’s really sad that some known representatives of compassion and love have given way to harsher emotions. It’s strange but true that humanity which expected better virtues from fair sex is now at the receiving end of wrong values as women of our times stand side by side demoniacal tendencies. Though the rise of women in the criminal world doesn’t come as a surprise, it’s still unbelievable that they can be so lethal and cruel. One cannot readily believe that women can commit cold blooded murders with such precision even as such murders are commonplace in Western nations. In one of my earlier news report based articles I had talked about rise of lady criminals in Allahabad but this time the extreme gravity of the crime has left most of us shell shocked.
Some days back a one and half years old baby, who was resting in the arms of her mother was shot dead at point-blank range by none other than another woman in Allahabad. This woman was in dispute with her family over financial matters. This woman had lent some money to her husband on which she collected monthly interest and for past few months the family had entered into default. This time amid heated debates she opened fire targeting the baby who was at that time resting in the arms of her mother. One can imagine the mental state of mother whose very young baby was shot dead this way. She is in state of virtual coma since the happening of this ghastly murder.
Women once considered object of admiration for their heavenly attributes such as extreme tolerance level, compassion and love, to name a few, are now competing with agents of hell. They can go to any extent to satiate their desires. They can, in fact, easily commit any sort of crime as the veneer of innocence which is synonymous with their beings act as a great facilitator. In developed nations, the evolved criminal investigation and prosecution are in tune with this latest change in instincts of women but in third world countries the methodology is still following the beaten track. Reason? It still believes that women are innocent all the time!! I am not saying women are evil nowadays. I am only saying that let’s not suppose that they cannot commit shocking crimes. It’s time to realize that with evolution of our sense and sensibility our affinity with various sorts of never heard criminal instincts has increased and women are no exception in demonstration of such instincts side-by-side their male counterparts.
In present case I am still at my wits’ end as to why the baby was murdered ? Would anyone explain me what was the need to kill the innocent baby ? A life full of potential met an untimely end by another mad woman. No need to tell what a baby means to any married or unmarried woman. There are many couples who despite having lived a long married life are childless. An arrival of baby is cause of celebration in India or elsewhere. Murdering a baby defies any logic. Let me inform you that this lady was criminal in nature but one never imagined that she could go to this extent to shot dead a baby in daylight.
Anyway, let’s the lawmakers grasp the fact that treating a woman as holy cow during the criminal trials would be a great blunder.The times have changed, and thus, it should be kept in mind that criminal instincts have taken bizarre shapes. At personal level, I feel it’s end of innocence now. That in my eyes is a great loss for humanity. It only means future generations would hardly be able to know what innocence is really all about. The sight of woman would no longer evoke poetic appeal but sense of horror!
