He called on parents to take responsibility for their sons’ actions, saying parents must teach their sons the difference between right and wrong.

"When we hear about these rapes our heads hang in shame," Mr Modi said.

"Young girls are always asked so many questions by their parents, like ‘where are you going?’. But do parents dare to ask their sons where they are going?" he asked.

Those who commit rape are also someone’s sons. It’s the responsibility of the parents to stop them before they take the wrong path,” he added.

Okay, say what you want about him, but this is a big deal. This is Prime Minister Modi’s first Independence Day address since being elected. And instead of using this time to talk about Pakistan, like every other Independence Day speech in the past, he stood up there and talked about INDIA’s need for improvement. And amongst his topics, he talked about rape.

And he didn’t describe it as “accidental” or “boys making mistakes”, and he didn’t state that women need to “dress more dignified”, all of which have been said by other Indian politicians. For once, we’re hearing someone put the blame on the rapist, and actually calling out parents to raise their sons properly. Like everyone else, I’m still hoping Modi isn’t another PM who is all talk.

I don’t know about you, but this is pretty awesome and epic.

One address may not change everything, but being the first Indian PM to acknowledge the problem in boys being never taught about not to rape somebody, it is a pretty big deal. Not to mention that (no offence) India is one of the places where you hear the most about horrible rape cases, and where sexism is still pretty much at large. Modi’s Independence Day address is not just significant to India, it is significant to all countries. If the leader of India can acknowledge this, why can’t any of you?

Unilateral lumbarisation of the first sacral segment (S1), classified as Castellvi type 2A. This case is very interesting because it is combined with the assimilation of the first coccygeal segment. So, while there seems to be 6 lumbal vertebrae, sacrum seems “normal” with 4 pairs of foraminae sacralis. Foraminal stenosis could cause nerve impingement, via osteophytes formation. (medieval skeleton from Serbia).
