Michel Montecrossa in his New-Topical-
Michel Montecrossa says about ‘Talking Rape In India’:
“I wrote the song ‘Talking Rape In India’ at a time when more and more governments all over the world got poisoned by corruption, lost contact with reality and mistreated their people. This decline of ethical standard spread like wildfire throughout the societies and pushed the minds of the people into bewilderment, lack of trust, confusion and mental disorder leading to increase of rape, murder and a general loss of civilization and humanity.
All this must be ended if nations want to survive. Women are the most precious power for the life of every nation. They must be free from suppression, rape and murder and for this liberation I full-heartedly take a stand with my song.”
TALKING RAPE IN INDIA
Of kidnap and gang-rape and murder I will sing, / of a 23 years young woman in a bus in Delhi, o listen, friends: / Capital punishment demanded. Is it the answer? / The judiciary system failed in protecting women. / There’s nationwide outrage / shouting: “Punish the police!”
The young woman died of her injuries. / There is pressure for change of laws, / pressure for faster court reaction / and change of attitude towards women. / Anger and fury drives the young India. / Flaws in the system are so obvious. / It’s the hour of awakening to
equality, respect, liberty and strong / recognition of the all-important / economic, social, cultural and ethical work-power / of women serving the life of the nation. / Rape is as if you rape your own mother / and your mother did not bring you to the world / for hurting her so much, o Lord!
