The Cornered Tiger

Parents, the ones who bring children to this world, grow them up; make them identify the fine line between right and wrong, fulfill their demands, keep a check on their needs and provide them what they want.

Child Sexual Abuse, Spread the Awareness

Every other day we get to hear a news something like a kid hardly of age 4 or 5 got raped.
