We all watched our TV screens in horror and shame today as we saw a small girl of five crying in agony as her ears were brutally twisted by a cop in New Delhi.
Repeatedly, his face displaying evident enjoyment.
Followed by a few slaps delivered almost nonchalantly, as if it didn't matter in the very least.
The reason,the little girl, from the lower strata of society,was suspected of havaing stolen a few hundred rupees....
The thought that stayed with us- This probably happens in thousands of places in India, with thousands of little children, every day.
Only this one was caught on camera.
Then aired on National television....
