A tragic reminder

Posted on July 24, 2012


Today, I complete 14 years of reading newspapers. I am reminded of this day because of a remembrance ad in The Hindu. It was a tragic end to a young girl’s life.      

Twenty-year-old Sarika Shah was harassed by a bunch of ruffians in Madras on July 24, 1998. In an attempt to get away from them, she fell off an auto she boarded. It was fatal.

Every year a grim reminder, when I flip open the pages of The Hindu.

I hope one day mankind will reform its ways and such barbaric acts will only be remnants of the cruel past.

Hope her soul is resting in peace.
