These days she often goes with uncle to play in the toy room or in the empty room at the end of the corridor.
A friendly exchange of eye contact with some pleasantries, he helped her while climbing down from bus- the little one thought- this uncle is nice!
#Day2 (Few days later)
He helped her find her class when she lost her way, he then pat her back and said goodbye! She thought again- this uncle is nice!
Today uncle helped her tie up her shoe laces abd planted a kiss on her cheek. She thought – mom said not to kiss strangers or let strangers kiss you, but this uncle is nice, he is not a stranger- I meet him everyday!
Day4 (few weeks later)
Today uncle took her to the playroom during break. It was so much fun playing with toys! Uncle told her he’s a friend now n will often play with her! Woohoo she has a big friend now!
These days she often goes with uncle to play in the toy room or in the empty room at the end of the corridor. Today uncle asked her to take off her dress- she told him mummy said not to take off clothes in front of anyone but uncle said she can take it off for him- as he is her best friend. They played a fun game- tickle tickle. He tickled her n she laughed a lot! No one played this game with her ever before!
Today uncle again played the tickle game. but he touched her in the part between her legs- she told him not to touch there, mom said no one should- but uncle said he can, he is her best friend!
Today uncle again played the game with her but it was painful- what was he trying to do? She felt bad, but she didn’t tell her mom- mom will be angry! Mom always says not to allow Anyone touch the private parts! She could not sleep entire night! She doesn’t like uncle any more! But uncle told her it’s their secret- she should not tell anyone about it. Next time when they will play this game it won’t hurt anymore! But today it is hurting a lot!
This is not a mere story, but my attempt to give you an idea how a perpetrator or paedophile prepares his target! We all must understand- child sexual abuse is real! We must prepare ourselves and our little ones to identify and fight with such beasts! We need to work towards creating this world a better place for living for our juniors.

Homeschooling in India is having a moment. As families become increasingly weary of traditional schooling thanks to cookie-cutter policies and high costs, parents are opting for alternate methods of education
Homeschooling in India is having a moment. As families become increasingly weary of traditional schooling thanks to cookie-cutter policies and high costs, parents are opting for alternate methods of education.
Come Monday morning, homes with young families across the country are in a chaotic yet familiar dance. Ceiling fans are turned off, and lights turned on with a vengeance.
Teeth are cleaned, and breakfasts are shovelled down. Uniforms and shoes are thrown on, and heavy school bags are picked up as parents and kids alike make a mad dash for the door.
But if you look closely, the underlying reason for anger and frustration in both groups of women is the same. It is the anger amongst women in being told what (or not) to wear.
A twenty-two-year-old Iranian woman, Mahsa Amini, was detained by the morality police for breaking the country’s strict dress code. While in custody, Mahsa passed away. It was alleged that Mahsa was beaten in custody, leading to her death. An allegation, the Iranian police have dismissed as baseless.
The incident has sparked protests all over Iran. Women are taking off and burning their headscarves. They are chopping off their hair in public squares. These acts of defiance are against a regime that makes the hijab mandatory for women.
Closer home, in Karnataka, a few months back, young girls in PUC colleges were protesting against the administration’s decision to ban headscarves in the colleges. They were demanding their right to education while following the tenets of their religion. The matter was taken to the Karnataka High court, where the women lost. The matter is now sub-judice in Supreme Court.
