Two tragedies back to back gave some interesting insight of Indian psychology. I have never given many marks to Indians as doting parents, and these incidents somehow sang to that gloomy belief of mine.
The whole world knows the first incident when a young girl was gang-raped and later succumbed to that. The whole country united and displayed their wrath, hatred against that monstrosity.
Something far more repulsive, tragic happened right after that, at least in my eyes, a five year old faced the same monstrosity but did not died. This incident did not create a single wave in the psyche of Indian society. That leaves one wondering if the first storm was created by some invisible force trying to gain some mileage.
No wonder our children are not safe. If we look around us, everywhere, starting from tea shops to brick kilns, brothels we will see thousands of living proof that scream that majority of Indians don’t love their children, they just give birth and then make preparations for the next one!
