The Terror Is Nowhere Near Close As Mother India’s Children Face An Uncertain Future!
The pandemic has taken a lot with nothing to return. Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, Kith, Kin, you name it. A whole lot of tears to speak and broken hearts to pick up. They say wounds heal with time. But the situation hailing right now seems to give a penny to what time wishes to say, to help people heal.
Time struggles to heal this Tsunami spewing corse-shed. Every passing day gets concluded with a call of a known mug or a passing-by stranger biting the dust.
And now, the National Commission for Protection and Child Rights, NCPCR has got something to say and it isn’t great either. According to the body, nearly 30,000 kids between the ages of 8-13 have been orphaned, lost a parent, or abandoned. The numbers have wrenched many hearts, and true enough, their futures stare at a scary uncertainty.
States, where over 2,000 children were afflicted, include Rajasthan (2,482), Haryana (2,438), Madhya Pradesh (2,243), Andhra Pradesh (2,089), and Kerala (2,002). In Bihar, 1,634 children were impacted while in Odisha 1,073 children were affected.
On May 26, Union Women and Child Development minister Smriti Irani had recounted that about 577 children have been orphaned since April 1, 2021. To date, it has to be noted that nearly 3.77 lakh people have died due to the pandemic.
The more we give in to careless needs, the more the children of India might need to face a misted future, a future without a cause. Stay Safe for the sake of ceasing the dern the pandemic wishes you to face.
