GUWAHATI, July 15 � Senior journalist DN Chakravartty, while commenting on the flood of comments coming from high and low on India�s social and political life with regard to the unfortunate incident of July 9 involving a young woman on the city�s GS Road, said that the incident � highly condemnable as it is � has been blown out of proportion, and needlessly and unreasonably dragging the entire Assamese community on the dock at the same time.

Quoting statistics from the crime records of the Home Ministry, Government of India, the 84-year-old journalist said that in a country where over 25,000 women are raped every year by goons and organised hooligans, and another 40,000 are teased or harassed by street loafers, an incident � however humiliating and harrowing it might be � involving thrashing of a young inebriated woman by street goons cannot be accepted as a vital instance reflecting the state of moral make-up of the entire society.

Chakravaratty said that the metropolitan electronic media of India which seldom carries harrowing tales of flood-affected people of Assam and scarcely reflect the joys and sorrows of the people of this part of the country, �had now shown disproportionate interest of an incident occurring on the GS Road, type of which occur every day in the lanes and by-lanes of 4,000 Indian cities and towns.�
