Dancing on bodies

THE people, particularly youths, in the Indian capital of New Delhi decided not to celebrate commencement of the New Year as a mark of respect for the Delhi rape victim who recently died in Singapore.

We in Pakistan, particularly in Karachi, pick 10 to 15 bodies of our innocent citizens daily and still dance on the graves of our loved ones on one pretext or the other.

Let us take fresh lessons for being human.
