    Earlier women simply had cloth wrapped or draped around their bodies and they roamed around and worked freely. One day, someone got a bad intention seeded in his brain. Then? Behold the introduction of women's role in the house! She is safe when she's in. Women, protected. His seed started growing and never stopped. The intention was a new normal enemy.
    Years later, the seed grew and branched further, like a sapling. Now the intentional person came inside the house and used the super power of imagination to get lost in the thoughts of what hides behind the drape. Behold the introduction of Parda! Because women should be protected from the evil right? Hmm... So women, protected and the sapling, it remains and branches out further.
    Years passed by and this superpower of imagination evolved to look past the parda (covering or extra layer of cloth) making eyes an x-ray machine. Oh no! Women needs to be protected! Layers added to the dressing and house was the best spot for spending a life. The x ray machine's evolution never stopped. But women were so amazingly protected yet again. Welcome the new normal enemy, x-ray vision.
    Years passed, the sapling grew into a small tree. It was now getting leaves of lust which didn't care about consent. The branches now took over movements of hands and legs too. After so long, or rather after the new normal was no more new, women again started stepping out into the world, in public places too. The branches now were so excited that they moved hands and legs and eyes to follow every single beauty they found appeasing.
    Oh no! Women needs protection! Dear women, you should carry a cutter, pepper spray, knife or chilli powder with you for your safety. Come home early ok? Dark place, no no, not at all. Hush, women are protected again! Oopsie! No one thought about the tree? Well, it never stopped growing. Welcome the new normal enemy, eveteasing, public teasing and unwanted touch.
    Well, guess what, new normal was also not new after few years. The tree was now strong, at both the ends, trunk standing tall and roots grabbing the base firm. It began bearing fruits, rather poisonous fruits that had seeds of rape culture in it. Cases of rape started coming up like a chain reaction, one after another! Oh God! Not again! Women needs to be protected urgently!!! So the earlier restrictions grew a little stronger, but this time, law stepped in. New rules, new laws and acts that said the judiciary and law is available 24*7 for getting you justice in any kind of wrong acts anywhere in the country, just name them once. Now this was on the top level of hierarchy so it will definitely take time to reach down to the lowest levels. Till that time, a new normal entered, rape culture. Examples of earlier life and restrictions started justifying the whys of current scenario. Protecting women is important after all! When the law stepped in, the trees started feeling insecure about not being anonymous anymore. Hmm... What to do? Let's kill the victim, no recognition, no punishment, simple right?
    Guess the new normal now? Rape and murder...
    It's not a fight against just those who grow heinous all of sudden, it's a fight against that one wrong direction of steps taken in the past and the ripple effect it caused all these years that waved higher with each ripple! The tree is strong, firm at its roots, its evolving too, everyday. It's not a time to accept the new normal and not a time to take revenge wrongfully by doing the exact same thing the fight is for. It's not a time to get stuck in loops of blame games.
    It's time for uprooting the tree, one blow at a time. Every voice raised is a blow on the tree, every blow is important. Aap chronology samajhiye, new normal ke tareeke nahi..!
