The Guardian has an excellent long-form piece on the gang-rape in Delhi that shook us all. Please read it.

I’ll even go so far as to say it captures contemporary India very well. The piece made me realize that it wasn’t so much a perfect storm of things being wrong that led to the crime occurring. It is that they all were wrong and will continue to be wrong for the foreseeable future. And women in India are walking in this minefield every single day.

That thought almost makes me despair.
