FB Discussions - The Curse of Drink in Villages
I know the pathetic schooling they go thro', the dreams that are sold to them, the unemployment that they face, the dashed dreams - and I need to place the blame at the feet of the larger society, and me and you. For failing them. As this village is a decent, and cohesive place, they have not become criminals. I can imagine similar children elsewhere turning to crime also ...
(via Raghunandan Tr)
The Rajya Sabha has approved the reduction of the age of juveniles to 16. This is complete shit. This will come back to bite many blameless children. Truly a step back into the dark ages. Every one of you, who supported the media hysteria and drove this country to this regressive step, if you have children who are young and who are, or will be teenagers, this could be the kiss of death for them. Remember that.
But of course, what do you care? Your children study in elite schools, they are not living in that India where kids could be routinely picked up and incarcerated in jail.
