What Do We Believe?

The murder case of the 6-year-old in a Gurugram school a couple of months ago shook all of us to the core. Immediate investigation and reports seemed to suggest that it was a school employee who had done it and there was a possible case of sexual abuse as well.


Now we are being told that the act was done by a Class XI student who wanted to do something that would shut the school. He supposedly did this so that he could avoid an exam that day and a PTM meeting scheduled for later. There does not seem to be any sexual abuse angle here.


What do we believe?


More importantly, what should the family believe in?


If the second theory is true then what does it say about the mental pressures that school students go through? This juvenile was willing to commit murder to get the school to close down?


What does this say about us a society? We were so quick to assume and believe that the school employee would have sexually abused the child?


What does this say about our investigating authorities? There are two agencies and two theories - poles apart.


What does it say about our media? Is the race for TRPs so important that there isn’t time to pause, analyse and present information responsibly?


And most important of all: Can we imagine the trauma that the family is going through? To have lost a child in such a gruesome manner?


I only have questions, no answers.

The media is such a devil player in all of this. I was just watching maneka gandhi speak about it in a news interview she said the same thing was it the police who jumped into accusing the driver or was it the media who pulled up and raged into finding who it was just mins after the incident.
All said and all done the parents of the child are the ones at the greatest loss. We may just find answers but they are the ones probably looking for their son to might have survived. It is so sad that we say the children are burdened beyond their capabilities but we need to also analyse if as parents are we at the spoiling end. Are we trying to be so protective and blaming every authority whether school or any other such place whr our kids go that our kids are silently picking up that any crime that they do might not be a crimw for their parents and may be they will stand by. Too sad the poor person was accused and everytbing held against him so many of such bus conductors, helpers, school maushis would have suffered in every school post this incident. Such a sad state. But a larger question here is no matter who the culprit whst the story how do we ensure the safety of our kids???? What do we do so that some mentally traumatised person whether adult or juvenile doesnt find it easy to get away with such crimes.


Whatever feeling really bad abt that kid,,,he was so cute😔
