 About the Book 

Child sexual abuse is not something we have not heard of. In fact, many of us must have encountered it too. It is extremely difficult to acknowledge that sexual abuse of children happens every day… in all sections, castes and educational backgroundsMoreChild sexual abuse is not something we have not heard of. In fact, many of us must have encountered it too. It is extremely difficult to acknowledge that sexual abuse of children happens every day… in all sections, castes and educational backgrounds of our society.Samira and Kajri- two little girls of 12 and 8 years old belong to different backgrounds, brought up with dissimilar values and live a life that is poles apart from each other. But one thing that connects them is the horrifying experience of childhood sexual abuse.The book shadows the heart wrenching struggle of these innocent girls in comprehending the ghastly episodes which has left them petrified for life. The situation becomes worse when their parents turn their backs to them. Now they both must accept, howsoever reluctantly, their existence as an abused one.“The story of Samira and Kajri stirred me and changed the way I thought. Along with the issue, rises a strong voice.” By Vijay Kumar Chopra. Editor, Punjab Kesari Group.
