When she tried to shrug him off, Bhura plunged in his fingers into her eyes gouging out her right eye and wounding the left.

This was the story of a nurse raped by a ward boy. The judge asks the victim to consider an offer of marriage from the abuser. The lady said no.

This is the 5th line from the 23rd post on this site. Is it my 23rd blog, not really. i was earlier on the 20six site and had to manually move the posts one by one. And as such this is entered as post number 23 in the WP powered blog. Why am I regurgitating old posts? Well, because Shivam Vij of Mall Road tagged me. A new meme is going around infecting blogdom. And i am its latest victim 🙂

It is kind of strange that abuse of women is a theme that i keep coming back to with monotonous efficiency. I wish i didn’t come across so much of violence against women, and didnt’ have to blog about the anger that i feel everytime i read about one of these.

I am supposed to Tag 5 other unsuspecting bloggers. I am apologising in advance to them. all hate mail to be sent to the originator of the meme :). These are the rules (whacked from Shivam’s site that explain’s what you have to do:

1. delve into your blog archive.
2. find your 23rd post (or closest to).
3. find the fifth sentence (or closest to).
4. post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.
5. tag five people to do the same.

I tag Charu, peter, vulturo, tarun, kamesh.

But, it is quite a conincidence that his 23rd post is on caste, and mine on abuse of women!
