As the fervour of the Delhi gangrape starts to wane, there are tough questions that remain smouldering in its wake. Questions that couldn’t be quenched with all the effort. Questions too hot to allow brushing under a carpet. Those are questions left unresolved. The ones we have quietly moved around in order to walk on. They hold the key to our future. One such question died recently. Raju, a tea stall owner set himself ablaze in the premises of a court in Tamil Nadu. Hospitalized with third degree burns, he got a taste of hanging between life and death before succumbing too. Like the girl herself.
