I still am not able to come out of the effect the child rape incident has created and hence wanted to know why exactly these men are doing such things. I personally believe there is a devil in every human being unless it is unleashed it stays calm and one would pose to be innocent outside.
Off late, in both the rape incidents that have created ripples of insecurity among the female portion of the human lot in India, men (both juvenile and adult) have behaved in such bizarre manner that you just cannot believe your own ears that such things really can happen.
When I was discussing with one of my friends, he said, ?the guy would not even have known he had done such things, he must have consumed unlimited alcohol that his brain would have gone numb?. Well, I wanted to know what exactly this alcohol does to your brain, and of course this is a new invention that has come to vogue for a decade or so. India and other civilisations around the world have known and consumed alcohol in different forms from time immemorial. So what is this new scenario that is happening around us?
Have our men gone unreasonably insane, or is there anything else that is creating this insanity in them. Well I am a mother of two little boys and I would never want my sons to be insensitive towards his fellow human beings when they grow up, and I think this would be an emotion shared by all mothers in common. So what does this alcohol actually do to your brain?
Effect of Alcohol on Human Brain
Alcohol seems to have a number of acute effects on the functioning of brain. A person who consumes large amounts of alcohol would
- Lose coordination of his brain and muscle ? you would not know what you actually are doing. You would want to do something but end up doing something entirely different. This occurs mostly because alcohol impairs the glutamate function in human brain.
- Have short term memory loss ? this happens in many cases and people tend to totally go blank of what happened between periods of time when the alcohol had its total effect.
- Increase in Excitability ? Alcohol is responsible for a sudden increase of dopamine levels in the brain; this would lead to the person getting too excited. Many people at this phase become very talkative and others feel giddy.
- Causes Depression ? Alcohol also boosts the activity of Gamma-amino-butyric-acid (GABA) in the brain. This result in feeling sleepy and getting depressed.
Just imagine what a person who is depressed from inside, excited suddenly and does not know what exactly is happening around can do. It is very difficult to comprehend the behaviour of such people and when a small soft prey gets trapped by this person, what would happen?
Well the two known cases have shown us what would happen, and god knows how many more have been dealt off with Rs 2000 and more.
