My Padmavati is a four-year-old in rural India, possibly in the desert state of Rajasthan. She is lucky to be alive. She has escaped sex-selective abortion and female infanticide. But her fight has just begun. As she enters her teens she will face the outlawed menace of child marriage, dowry demands, domestic violence and honour killing (in case she dares to select her life partner). That is if she till then has managed to ward off malnutrition, rape on her daily trips to find a lonely spot for defecation, sexual harassment, child trafficking and even accusations of witchcraft.

"Statistics are like bikinis. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital." The late American professor Aaron Levensteins memorable quote may be apt for the Crime in India��2016 report released by the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) recently. As usual, newspaper headlines screa ­med "crime capital" and "rape capital" while reporting it. The data, spread over 742 pages, was interpreted, justified and opposed by political leaders, policymakers and policemen to their own convenience. One set argued that a rise in crime graph is due to a robust crime reporting system, while the other pointed to lacunae in policing arising out of political interference or abject failure in tackling law and order. Overall, 48.31 lakh cognisable crimes, including 29.75 lakh registered under the Indian Penal Code (IPC), were reported in 2016, recording an increase of 2.6%. The overall crime rate (per lakh population) increased to 379.3 from 374.1 in 2015 and 367.5 in 2014. The number of murders declined ...
