An unseen hell is in our country, “Innocent baccho ke jeebh katkr aur physically harm kr bheekh mangwana”.
Today I was sitting on the doorsteps of my home to get some sunshine. Suddenly two little munchkins whose tongues were cut came to me and showed me the card which they were holding on their hands in which it was mentioned that these children have no tongue and no parents, and after showing that card, the children asked me to give them some money. I asked them to show their tongues, and their tongues were cut exactly likewise.
I asked them where they have come from, who kidnapped them. One was quiet, but the other was telling me things by giving me hints. They were asking for money, but I didn’t give them money. My sister gave them food and water, but still, they were asking for money. I asked them if they would be punished if they didn’t give money to the monsters, they said yes.
I clicked their pictures and kept the card to help them out in some way. After some time, I called child helpline and told them about the whole incident and filed a complaint. The team asked me to keep those children with me so that they can reach the children and help them escape.
But the children were gone by then and I tried to search for them but haven’t found them so far. I have sent the pictures of these children to the team of the child helpline of the district. Let’s see what happens.
I request you all that if you see any such case please take action right then. Because of my stupidity, I couldn’t help them escape. If I would have called the helpline at the same time “shayad bacche bach jate“. I deeply insist you take action. If we all make efforts, it can be stopped and we can save so many innocent lives.
