Children of India

Horror stories of children suffering have been coming out of India. And, the media has been giving the painful details. Killings of Noida, tragic death of Suraj, how a poor family disowned their daughter. . .

We offer money at our temples. Also, when we go to see a new-born baby. Man is believed to be the embodiment of Divinity. May be, a child is a purer form. Hence the ‘offering’?! May be… This is a collective failure of us, Indians. All our economic growth is of no value, if we are not able to take care of our children.

Whether we believe in doctrine of Karma or the simple logic of ‘what goes out, comes back’, we are responsible for our children.

Let us restore the joy of childhood to our children…
