A real sickening day…
A day was full of expectation: the budget 2012-13, iPad launch, and the possibility of Sachin get to the 100th 100. But as I write this, none of the those mattered. Today started with the news that baby Falak had suffered a cardiac arrest late last night and had eventually succumbed. It felt sick. Here was a girl, just 2 years old, and had suffered such ghastly atrocities. She probably just felt the pain all through her life and didn’t understand what it was. With nobody to save her, she suffered. How low can a human sink to? What sick person does that to a child? Even scarier is that person is still out there. The Indian state promises Right to Life in the constitution. The Indian state failed Falak. I atleast hope that they will do justice to her in death and bring the perpetrators to justice; I know it’s highly unlikely but well… one can only hope.
It’s ironic that she died due to cardiac arrest. I guess after fighting bravely for 2 months, she just didn’t have the heart to live in a world that did her so wrong. I really hope that there is a heaven today, just for her, so that it makes up for all she misery and pain she had to endure here, among us.
I end this with a quote I am reminded of from the movie Blood Diamond
Sometimes I wonder…will God ever forgive us for what we’ve done to each other? Then I look around and I realize… God left this place a long time ago.
