    Will attitudes change? Will anything change in India, as a result of the horrificNew Delhi rape and murder that presently commands media attention? Absolutely not!
    It will take decades and probably centuries for attitudes towards women to fundamentally change in that backward society.

    Attitudes will not change,but i would like to take step forwrd to change the attitudes as India is a male dominated country ,i am sure if every women comes forward then it can be surely changed,as we all know in India,the women condition was even more worse in oldden days,but now compartively,its changed a lot and we find women in every field if the so long cutoms and tradtions like sathi,women being not educated,partents not allowing their girls to stay alone in other cities,love marraige,their living and dressings and equal rights can be changed to a lot extent even this can be changed all requried is the courage,and equal participation of women to chnage the attitude, i am i stock about the delhi rape case,may her soul RIP,but she left a message to all of us to fight,i am ready to take a step forward instead of cribbing...
