These days, I’m getting scared to watch the Indian news channels. The news in those channels is making me think whether this is India or some barbarian country. I am writing this article because of the following two pieces of news:
1. One ten year old boy was burnt alive by a marriage party today somewhere in Delhi(as far as I can recollect). Let me get into those details. Some persons from the groom’s family, allegedly, got drunk and were travelling in a car recklessly. They hit a ten year boy who’s riding his bicycle. The boy pleaded them to give him the money needed to repair his bicycle and the persons in the car took hi away with them. Later the boy was burnt alive by them at a farmhouse.
2. A girl in Mumbai was living alone as her parents were working overseas. This girl was addicted to drugs and high society life. But she was not having the required money to fulfil all her needs. So she expressed her love towards a guy. This guy was happy enough to get a girl friend and started spending all his pocket money on her. He was buying her gifts, refilling her mobile talk-time etc. Suddenly this girl met another boy and slowly she was inclined towards the second guy(?). She wanted to lose the first guy and disappeared for a day or so. Then she lodged a complaint with the police saying that the first guy kidnapped her and “played with her body” for about 26 hours. The police arrested the guy but was suspicious about the complaint. Slowly they gathered all truth and arrested the girl and the second guy.
All these recent news is making me doubt whether this is the country “I love so dearly”.
