IIMs and few B schools have replaced GD with WAT. Written Ability Test has become a tool to test MBA aspirant on assessing overall communication skills and personality, so it is also equally important and crucial component of MBA admission process.
Develop points for discussion and read WAT topic:
“Law alone can't prevent repeat of Nirbhya”
It is often said that time is a great healer, it heals all wounds, subsumes all memories of despair and sadness. But some incidents stand out. Some memories never fade away. They leave indelible scars on the human psyche. One such incident is the 2012 Delhi gang rape of a twenty-three year old physiotherapy intern, on 16th December. This horrendous event shook the entire nation and shamed us on the international arena. A well-deserved shame and humiliation. What can be expected from a nation whose men practise such cowardly acts to put their man-hood on display.
The incident stirred the hearts of the entire nation – large chunks of the National Capital Region were either cordoned off or were being patrolled by security forces. The entire nation had come to a standstill. There were protest marches, parades near India Gate. The government was forced to take note and amend laws. Several fast-track courts and laws were established. The women of the nation were finally being given their due. But the picture was actually not so bright. A few days after this atrocity, the newspapers were full of other such incidents. The crimes seemed to have increased.
Several such incidents of physical assault against women go unreported since the woman is accused of having ‘invited’ it. It as if she were being punished for acting or dressing up in a certain way.
Though laws were passed with rapidity, such incidents still continue to occur. Where then does the real problem lie? It lies with the mindset and the attitude of men. Imposition of laws is not the solution. Ensuring respect for women, equal opportunities to them, getting rid of discrimination in all spheres (political, economic, educational etc.) can help ameliorate the situation.
The change needs to come from within. Unless women are given an equal space to grow at par with men, unless men realise that women are in no way inferior to them or their chattels, but are human beings with a unique identity and personality, no number of laws or enforcements can change this bleak situation.
