I’ve not been able to sleep for a few days. Ever since I saw a video of this hit and run case which has created an uproar in all parts of the country. I swear, It could be any one of us one day. What a way to die. I did not know if I should write about it, but since it has caused me so much of mental distress, I decided I should write about it.
For those of you who aren’t from India : this is the lowdown. An innocent, young man was crossing the road in a residential area when some rich fuck’s kid drive by at 80 kmph and hit him, he didn’t stop!!
I made the mistake of watching the video which was caught on a cctv and it made my blood boil.I felt a surge of disbelief, pain, grief, anger, rage, shock and despair.
In India, it is very easy for the rich to get away with almost anything. If there was no cctv footage, no one would have seen the merc hit the man, see him fly 12 feet into the air. It is the only reason that they have been able to charge the person driving the car, apparently a juveline with culpable homicide. I sometimes wonder about juvenile offenders. I think by the time you are 16, you are grown up enough to know shit like this. It is one of the most disturbing things I have seen in my life.
What has this world come to, I wonder. How can you kill someone and run away? What kind of a human being could be so reckless and so cruel. It breaks my heart. What kind of a world will our children live in? I wonder, I wonder.
I hope people will be more careful, but I guess that’s too much to hope. Our society is going to the dogs, no one pays heed to caution anymore.
Over and out,
A very disturbed Ladyhawk
