New Delhi: Its shocking, its traumatic! Much has already been talked and written about the Delhi gang-rape victim.
The suppressed, molested, outraged, raped Indian woman left for the heavenly abode on 29th December. Medical reports earlier said that had the brave heart survived, she would not have been able to consume food with her mouth for the entire life.
Ironically, called 'Juvenile', the youngest of all allegedly harmed the victim the most, leaving her battling for life. The doctors of Safdarjung hospital mentioned in the medical bulletin that Damini 'the rape victim' is in extremely critical condition; her small intestine is totally damaged so we had cut a large part of her small intestine. She had severe injuries in her brain, lever and lungs. Doctors said that she had gone 16 times in comma. Her intestines were removed and she needed a transplant. The doctors were waiting for her to stabilize before carrying out the surgery. By 25 December 2012, she remained incubated, on life support and in critical condition. Doctors stated that the internal bleeding had been controlled to an extent, but her increased bilirubinlevel (suggesting hepatic dysfunction or hemolysis) was a "serious cause of concern". She died from her injuries thirteen days later while undergoing emergency treatment in Singapore for brain and gastrointestinal damage.
Apparently, she could not have led a normal life after undergoing multiple surgeries in addition to the mental agony and trauma she faced on that unfateful night. Bitter, but the truth is had the victim survived she would have been no better than an inactive person throughout her life, which reassures the belief in the demands that "Death Penalty is not sufficient for accused of Delhi gang-rape". The victim should live and feel the similar kind of trauma throughout his entire life.
The matter had come up in the Union Cabinet meeting and it was decided to ferry her abroad for treatment on a chartered air ambulance. The girl and her family members were issued special travel visas. The Indian High Commission was asked by the government to render all assistance to the girl.
The incident has generated international coverage and was condemned by the United Nations Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women. The incident sparked massive nationwide protests demanding severe punishments for the culprits.
The victim's friend (who was accompanying her) said, "You can't change mindsets by lighting candles. You have to help people when they need help".
