Reading this post on Shilpa’s blog has inspired me to write this post. In fact, inspired is not the right word. I’m provoked.
Few months ago, I read a news in the papers that they found a 4-5 day old baby boy dumped in a garbage can. You can understand in what condition he must have been found. He was in a heap full of filth, robbed of mother’s milk and had his toes nibbled off by rats. Thankfully the baby was alive. Couple of weeks later, the police successfully traced his parents and arrested them for an attempt to murder amounting to a culpable homicide. You know what was the reason for dumping the infant? Simple. They didn’t want it. The baby was unwanted.
I dont know if I should say I hate such people. Because hate, in such cases, is an understatement. Period.
