As per confirmed reports, a three-year old girl was raped in South Delhi on 24 January and then dumped in the bushes to die.
The victim is said to be out of danger, but for girls and women across the country, the danger still lurks.
As India woke up to a lot of optimism and celebration today, a lesser, often forgotten India also woke up to a sad reality that has existed for long, but hardly cared for except intermittently, when it is politically convenient, when no foreign dignitaries are due to arrive in the country.
Make no mistake, we are proud of our nation for what it is today.
But even as Puja Thakur became the first Indian woman to lead the guard of honour, the honour of a tiny tot was left unguarded only to be ravaged by a savage.
Tanks, missiles and heavily armoured marching contingents of the armed forces, the paramilitary and police forces interspersed with brass and pipe bands marching in perfect unison did nothing to protect this child.
We are too quick to install 15000 CCTVs overnight to ensure Obama's safety, but too lazy to install few after Nirbhaya's Rape Nationwide Outrage.
We are the nation in which farmers commit suicide everyday, and wisemen defend the government by throwing up numbers that show how farmer suicides occur in other countries too!
We are the nation in which politician increase their own salaries in a single parliamentary session but our brave soldiers have to wait for the next pay commission to get a raise.
And to the respected hardcore patriots shaking their heads in disagreement and asking us to stop defaming our nation, asking us to stop talking and start doing, we would humbly like to point out that we are common people just like you, and our role in nation-building is that of a responsible medium of information (Unlike other media houses whose idea of a more informed citizen is someone who knows what Sherwani Kunal Khemu woreon his wedding with Soha Ali Khan).
We are as much concerned about our nation and it's people, as you are. We believe that we cannot claim to be well-informed if our first reaction to challenges is to bury our heads in the sand like an ostrich.
