What kind of a sicko does that to a 7 year old? I wonder what goes on in his soul. More than that, my heart weeps for the pain that the 7 year old baby is going through as i write this daily report. What horrors this must leave in her mind forever. How this will affect her future. Will she get the counselling that she needs? Will she be shunned by the Society forever? The Accused ofcourse will get the punishment he deserves. I do have faith in the judiciary though i believe that the scale of punishment is not in keeping with the magnitude of the crime that is committed. Raping a 7 year old innocent girl who had no idea what she just went through must be treated as ” Rarest of Rare Cases”. But from the knowledge that i have gained by tracking such cases, he would probably get a 10 years Rigorous imprisonment and a cursory fine of 10,000 INR.
My mind wanders back to the girl. After 15 years when she gets married, and if her husband comes to know about this. Why do i get this feeling that he will abandon her. Infact i am quite sure that he will cite this very reason to abandon her. Wont he? How many of you disagree? I dont think many will not opine otherwise, especially if you are from India. Indian Society is a perfect example of how “Society that was once invented to help the people who live in it has taken up evil proportions”. Instead of People defining how a Society Should be, its Society defining how each and everyone under it should be. I dont think i will be able to sleep tonight, just like many other nights. So many atrocities on a daily basis and everyone seems to be worried about a 1.82 INR fuel price hike. I silently wait for the day when India would raise its voice. Till then, will continue what i have been doing. Tirelessly and non-stop. “The Bigger the Challenge, the greater will be my Effort. I Promise”
