Untrustworthy Trust?

In the overall inflationary world, there is one thing that is unabashedly southward bound. Sheena Bora murder has sent shock waves across the nation. With quest for materialism ever on the rise, human relationships have hit the nadir. Human life is becoming cheaper by the minute. Today even the most trusted relationships need revalidation. The institution of family is under severe stress. The world traditionally looked up to India as the ultimate custodian of the family values. Earlier when courts convicted Aarusi’s parents for her murder, the nation’s conscience was grievously hurt. We moved on praying it was an aberration. Today we stand challenged with our morals exposed. Are the perils of materialism coming to traumatize us? Or, we have simply corrupted our DNA? No easy answer as trust itself is seeking a new definition. Wish it was just another bad dream!

Questions, More Questions?

When a newspaper headline said “No one killed Jessica” it stirred the nation’s consciousness. The case accused is behind bars. There, though, is no closure yet on overall stranglehold of money and muscle power in India. But crimes of passion are not always about power play! The tragic murder of teenager Aarushi in 2008 bared the ugliest side of modern day human relationships. Amidst severely polarized opinion on whether or not Aarushi’s parents were behind the gruesome murder, the law settled for their conviction. This numbed the very essence of the eternal family value in India leading to several unanswered questions. Investigative journalist Avirook Sen’s just released book ‘Aarushi’ claims Talwars were framed. This has rekindled debate on who killed her then? Are we yet again succumbing to the lure of a catchy headline? Aarushi, for sure, deserves an honest answer!
