Learning From #SheenaBoraTragedy

The Sheena Bora diary has read the riot act to the urban middle class in India. Children and parents can no longer take each other for granted. In the era of 24×7 connected world, each individual in the family is perpetually engaged with the outside world even as the quality family time spent together is falling by the second. Eyeing constant materialistic growth, ever busy parents increasingly tend to buy love of their wards rather than earn it. The growing up stage for a child calls for attention from siblings, parents and preferably grand-parents to induce much needed safety valve. New age parents must stop just being ‘happy’ ATM vends.  The transactional nature of relationships has to end. A conscious effort to know and trust your children as they grow is the urgent need of the hour. You simply can’t rent out parenthood.

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!
