Thanks for the update Cal! The headline (actually from CS Monitor) is misleading. It gives the impression people were rioting because of the secret cremation. I thought they wanted to pay respects by having a public service, but that is not the case. It seems to me that the time for protests is over, or should at least abate for a period. The nation should be in mourning, just as the US did for the innocent school children and teachers that were massacred. "To everything there is a season..."

Perhaps the terrible ending of her life will be a beacon for ACTION in India!

I hope so.

The shame should not be with this poor woman, or her family. The shame should be felt by those who did the act or failed to prevent it.

guess the elite is allowed to do anything,
who protects us from corrupt governments? the police? the law? military? perhaps the internet?

So much anger and violence reverberating. The person who suggested "look within" to the roots of mysogeny is right on.
