Z donates…

You know that I’ve visited India several times and that I dearly love the country.  And everyone knows the awful incidents that there have been recently there, with women being attacked on the bus, or when going out to relieve themselves, being completely modest and not doing anything to draw attention to themselves (not that we lucky Westerners would consider that in any way provocative) – anyway, my good friend HDWK put this link on Facebook and I’m sharing it, in case anyone might feel able to support such a good cause.

For the next few days, my posts will be counting blessings.  Just a few – blimey, moderation in all things.

    Hello Z. Both Ann and I were brought up with Anglo-Indian relations in our family backgrounds, and had it dinned into us how much good the British occupation of India had done the Indians. When I read of the sort of attacks that you mention, we don’t seem to have done much to help at all. I suppose suttee is a thing of the past, and I hope the exposure of female babies is a thing of the past, but we don’t seem to have done much to change male attitudes towards women, do we?

      I’ve never felt threatened in India, it’s terrible that recent events show how the minority can behave. It only takes one bad apple, whichever country you’re in, I suppose.

    I had no idea.
    A very good and humanitarian cause. I will not forget it, and will give when I’m off the dole, promised, hoch und heilig, will not be forgotten.
