At India's Jaipur Literature Festival over the weekend a leading actress in the Bollywood movie industry, Sharmila Tagore, said parenting is to blame for violence against women in India.

Quote:
Referring to the fatal gang-rape of the young student in a chartered bus last month in New Delhi, Tagore said: "I don't think anybody is unaffected by what happened, but please don't look at Bollywood as a scapegoat."
Instead, people should look at society as a whole and at the family unit. "Bring up your sons and daughters equally. If you begin with that, then we would have achieved something. The family has far greater influence on the members of the family than cinema has, or ought to have, and if not, then the family is not doing its job."
