Shame On You, Delhi: This is How Many People Stopped to Help a Woman in Trouble

Screengrab from video uploaded by 'YesnoMaybe' on YouTube

YesnoMaybe, a channel on YouTube which conducts social experiments, parked a car on the streets of Delhi.

With its windows completely blacked-out, the YesnoMaybe team played the shouts of help from the car to capture the reactions of passers- by.

What happened next has left me feeling completely numb. The only silver lining in this doom-and-gloom were a small group of people who the video aptly dubs as 'heroes'... amongst them a 78-year-old guard...

A rape happens in India every 22 minutes according to government statistics. But activists say the figure is conservative as many rapes go unreported. Tougher laws against sexual assault were enacted last year after the fatal gang-rape of a student on a bus in New Delhi in December 2012 which sparked protests across the country.

However, this video on YouTube shows how little an average Indian on the street cares.
