    • Sheila @ Avaguide

      A very daring yet wise post Pradeep. We should be aware of this kind of incident that sometimes goes unnoticed due to being scared. Like what you said some don’t report it because it may tarnish their family rep but we must be responsible for bringing out the issues so it can be resolved fast. Strict rules that will scare the abusers.

    • ashwin

      good initiative. keep up the good work.

    • Martin Millers

      Good post Pradeep…everybody should read it…I agree that many children are scared to tell it out…I think children should be given a class about this in schools and taught to be open and inform their parents if they are a victim to such incidences.

    • Senthil Ramesh

      Much needed info for the time 🙂

    • prabhakaran

      Very useful. I appriciate .

    • Mani Viswanathan

      Good Cause Pradeep. In India there are plently of cases of child sexual abuse. We certainly can report it. But as you said the identity part comes into play. I don’t why people are afraid of loosing their Identify. Their child is less imp than their identity it seems.

    • Robin

      I was watching sunitha krishnan’s talk at TED. I dont care whether india is stepping forward and become one giant nation.. This kind of child abuse will take it to nowhere… 🙁

      Totally Ashamed..

    • Rahul @ Mazakaro

      hi pradeep, any thank-giving word is very silly today for you. you’ve drawn a nice picture here. in applaud for you. don’t you think the punishment against such crime is nothing? they should be punished death penalty thousand times or more. they are psycho and they have no right to stay on this earth.

      thanks, pradeep, for drawing our attention on such topics.

      • S.Pradeep Kumar

        Yes Rahul, the punishment should be cruel enough to kick the shit out of other hidden abusers. Hope the rules change, they should become more strict. Thanks for your words. 🙂
