I am not convinced whether this post is going to help me drive more traffic for this blog. I am not sure whether anybody would even be interested in reading what I’m going to pass on to you today. However, I still wish to talk about this article I read and how it has touched me because of the case it involves. This one is about Aarushi Talwar, a young teenager murdered at the age of thirteen going on fourteen in her own house whilst her parents slept in the adjacent room in May 2008. In India, Aarushi is more of a household name now after her murder gained huge media attention. I still remember how I was literally haunted by this story about five years back and I got so involved in the investigation reports and media coverage that I would see Aarushi in my dreams sometimes and I would be so petrified.
Today, I met Aarushi again. I sort of felt that anguish once again after a long time when I read Shree Paradkar’s piece on the inside story of her family and the flawed investigation which has eventually led this case to a standstill. Aarushi’s parents are suspected to be the perpetrators and they are both facing trial. Probably a large part of India believes that they killed their daughter. I have no idea why but I could never ever accept that. This classified report that I will link you to has been written by Aarushi’s aunt (her mother’s cousin) and it brings you closer to her family, their twinge and the scantiness of India’s system. This is a really long article and yet if this murder has ever held your attention, you wouldn’t be able to stop yourself from reading the whole of it.
Go ahead then and click:
P.S: I wanted to post this piece only because I wanted people to be aware of this story. I would definitely not be offended if the outbound clicks to this link are not good enough. I am at peace with myself for putting forth what I believe in and what I support.
I pray God gives them strength, mercy, blessings and happiness.
