Thread : The Honor & Shame syndrome
1- All our frets about our society being susceptible to the continuity & persistence of mediterranian modes of thought get vindicated when we see a father being more worried about his honor than the wellbeing being of his abducted daughter
2- A couple of weeks ago, A 13 yr old girl was abducted by someone she was well familiar with. Her father's servant. Multiple hideouts were first pinned down where suspects were believed to be sneaking at & then raided, but all of that was to of no avail for days.
3- The offender was whip-smart, to dodge the system he kept changing his cell number, locations & IMEIs & so would the linkers associated, making it one hell of a job for us to pursue him down.
While my team & I were at that, her parents would come to my office
4- sobbing their eyes out, worried sick about the honor that was now at risk, as most of us, they too are conditioned to believe that their honor is bind with their daughter, as a result, the amount of pressure mounted on me further.

8- I'm sure all of us, are very well aware of the fact that things would have been completely different had it been a boy. I have earned the right to ask from the people that constitute our society, will she ever be able to untangle herself from the vicious judgmental and
9- And horrifically wicked strings of our society that chokes women, after this unfortunate episode of her life? Will we let her ever be herself again? I guess NOT!
