Iraq: Disturbing picture ..

Sometimes you see a picture in a news bulletin .. and it sticks with you for the rest of the day(and probably will for a lot longer). Inspite of all the horrors we see in the news today, this was one such picture I saw today – no child should have to go through this! Very disturbing!

Inspite of being in Iraq, this girl looks almost ‘Indian’ to me from a typical Indian school – except for the surrounding settings.

I guess it shows that as human beings, we will empathise will people all over the world – inspite of the divisive forces of evil.

The logic of bombing a girl’s school escapes me!
