Remove the Organ, not the Man. Let's trend this solution, NOW.

Many won't agree to this, but death for rape isn't the right punishment. Emotionally speaking, it makes him forget what he did because death renders him brain dead. The victim has to live with the memory while he gets the garb of hell away from the world's cuss words. The curses and eyes are directed towards the victim. She is made,well, a "victim."

How can you just let a man go, just like that, without making him realise each and every moment that what he did was wrong, and shameful on his part, and not the woman's? Why, isn't shame directed towards him? Death just silences him. Silences the issue. Silences the other rapists who are raping women right now, while I write this article.

Death, is too easy a punishment. It is not even a punishment, but it is letting him go, purging off an abstinence rather than its solution.

SEX drive, libidinal energy and sexual frustration is so overpowering that these men, or any man with an overpowering urge to have sex, won't consider future consequences. It is a matter of seconds to make a decision and go for it. They won't fear if they will be hanged, because at that particular moment, their urges need to be satiated. 

Castration, seems the most correct way. When you know, that in future, just for raping one woman, just for this satisfaction, your future desires will be at stake, he might get discouraged. He won't rape any woman, because the punishment that will occur will be the removal of the very organ that he uses.
What about the groping, acid throwing incidents?
A country which thrives on celebrating masculinity, the very organ that makes a man, a man, if removed, the line does not get blurred, it gets debunked and stomped on. If you do it because well, men are men, let us take a step to remove what makes him a man.
The eve teasing incidents will be reduced too. What will he tease for? When, if he does something, will make him a vegetable?
Also, when I suggested this method, one of my friends pointed out that chemical castration does not affect the person's general health, and it also helps in reducing aggression levels. As rape, is more about exerting control and trying to show domination through aggression, this serves as, my friend put it, "an added bonus"
One of my friends also asked me, that if he does not fear death, how will he fear this?
But, here is where all the difference lies. Death is inevitable and it can come whenever and wherever. Man has two potent drives and that is sexual and the death drive. People, actually aren't scared of death, but its suddenness. The act of rape, both instinctual or planned, is all about using the organ to "dominate" over the woman. But, if using it on one woman, renders him useless for his entire life, he is a walking dead man. Death isn't as scary as being ripped off your very identity. What will you choose: an incurable skin infection or that part of the skin itself removed, or the whole hand removed? I will choose that part of skin to be removed, my hand stays, and the infection is gone. Death is removal of the hand, useless and doesn't do good to anyone. Remove the infection, remove the very tool of the crime, and the pain will go away, sooner or later. And the scar of the removed skin remains, he will regret using his biological component as a criminal tool, and it will, for his lifetime, serve as a reminder of his ripped off identity and shameful act.
I have given up on "Let him respect women enough not to even think of rape." Strategy. I am sorry, that will only come if some radical step precedes it. And death just removes the identified.
When I suggested this, a friend of mine beautifully put up another advantage of chemical castration:
 He might even be able to appreciate his potential victim's identity (even if it's on a subconscious level) once the fear that his own identity is at stake grips him.
Once the man even thinks of rape, but suddenly thinks, that he does not even have the organ for it, both his negative masculinity and sexual energy gets questioned. Remove the organ, not the man.
