Reports of rapes have become a daily affair these days. Everything from gang-rapes to minor rapes of women have been been among the top discussed topics in the country in the recent past. While many such cases garner headlines, most of the them remain unsaid. After the infamous 2012 Nirbhaya rape case, safety of women in the country has been debated the most in the country, however with no practical solution howsoever.
Reportedly, a woman is raped every thirty minutes in our country and unfortunately women themselves are blamed for it. Everything from women’s dressing to her character is judged and termed as the reason for why she got raped. Three years after the unfortunate night of December 16, the situation remains the same.

This video titled ‘Cabbie’ is a tribute to the 2012 Nirbhaya rape case victim from the The Zero Productions. The video shows a girl who after her late night shift books a cab to return home. However, the taxi driver has other plans. On empty corner of a street, the driver stops and the car and gets into the back seat.
Fortunately enough, the radio beeps and RJ talks about how a rapist can be hanged to death for raping, which brings the driver back to consciousness and he returns to his seat. While this girl was fortunate enough to be saved, women out there are not lucky enough everyday.
