  Even as I sit awake through nights penning down about the pain, anger and angst each Indian is going through today – my heart and soul weeps at the heinous brutality of what happened to a 23-year old  student who was gang raped in Delhi on 16th December 2012.   Thank you BookChums, it is an honour to be invited again by Kabita Sonowal to write on this burning topic.  I just wish to share ‘a few sparks’ that might ignite a ligh...
