The colorful, busy streets of New Delhi, India's capital are a mixture of old and new. Some people have modern attitudes, while others remain rooted in ancient values.

A 23-year-old female medical student from Ballia, in India's Uttar Pradesh State, had set out to change that. She had plans to give free medical care to the needy, to provide for her family, and to change those perceptions that a woman can't dream big in a traditionally male-dominated society.

She was the bridge between India, old and new.

But what happened to her on December 16, 2012 would be the country's tipping point - a rape that shook the nation.

Her parents share the story of the attack on their daughter one year on and the public outrage that followed.
