Sadly, the perpetrators of such a heinous crime are unapologetic while the victims carry their unknown burden for a lifetime.
Bereft souls torn apart from sexual abuse and bogged down by neglect lose their innocence along the way. Children are usually targeted by unmasked monsters within their circle of trust and attacked in an irreparable manner. Often people are questioned about safety and security in their homes which is laughed off with a nonchalant shrug of the shoulders.
Spare a thought…
Who protects the children from abominable evils like these?
Who gives them the courage to speak up against their own?
Who gives them the strength to carry on and grow up to be responsible adults?
Who explains their muffled sobs and screams of desperation?
Who gives them hope of escape from the sniveling hands of horror?
Who brings an end to this deplorable crime?
This particular thought-provoking artwork at the local art festival showcased at Kalaghoda, Mumbai made me feel incapacitated towards the insurmountable terror of the horrific abuse faced by children all over the world.
