I am sally from Canada, I and one of my friend are planning to visit India soon, However when we keep track of news related to India it seems that its really not a safe place to be especially for young single women.
I have seen this question being asked on many forums and sites, and mostly the answers are either from Indians who take it personally and try to compare the crime rate with the country of the person who asked the question ( like, ok India is not safe but also not your place ) which is ridiculous, or the answer are just denying the fact that this problem exists.
Most of the answers I read talks about what to do personally to be safe, like don’t go to alone places, don’t take services from unauthorized vendors, but no one talks about why unauthorized vendors exists in the first place??
I also know that crime exists everywhere in the world but the main question is about authorities who should curb it, what they do after a bad thing happens, how fast is the justice mechanism working and what really are the preventive measures taken?
My question is not against India, so please don’t take it personally.
