Innocence Lost

Watching a news channel for more than 5 mins has become a test of your endurance these days...stories of loot,murder,rape,child abuse,human trafficking,bomb explosions continue to haunt us every minute.10 years back people might have found these headlines quite horrifying..but today it has become a part n parcel of our lives...like all this is supposed to happen and we have to accept it...however I still haven't been able to get accustomed to all this bullshit happening around me...I do remain unaffected...busy as I am with college and all the regular stuff a normal girl of my age does....still in the end it doesn't make a difference..as you can't keep yourself aloof from all that's happening around you.....the 'news' really reaches you one way or the other...just like in the evening mum casually told me about this 14 year-old killing off his friend's sister while handing out a cup of coffee....the boy badly wanted to get his hands on the girl's new i-pod(yes that's right a 10 year-old can be a proud owner of an iPod today..and this is NOT supposed to be shocking)...not only did he throw her off a roof of a building(dunno the details here) but also smashed her face with a rock so that her body wasn't identified later..wow what criminal masterminds...and only at 14....sigh....oh and this incident took place in some district in WB....not in some metropolitan city like Kolkata.
Shocking enough?
