“Shhh! Don’t tell anyone” #WOW


Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers

“Shhh…Don’t tell anyone”….I overheard the voice from the back of bushes while I was returning with my friends from playground. I checked my watch, it was 7 pm. The Sun was ready to set , birds were flying back to nest and the cows were retreating to their shed.

I was startled to hear the voice and it echoed inside me. I had moved few steps but an inner instinct stopped me from moving further and I smelled something fishy about it.

“Hey Guys, wait…there is something going on behind the bushes…we should check it out.” I said to my friends.

“What happened Pranav? Are you okay?” They asked me in unison.

“Yes, I am ok…see while crossing that spot near to playground, I heard someone saying Shhh…don’t tell anyone…I think we should go and check.” I told them.

“Come on Yaar, Don’t be too judmental & curious. It said Don’t tell anyone and you are the one spilling out the beans…let’s go fast, we are getting late for the classes.” They said and took fast steps towards hostel.

I was in a shock and could not move further. My friend Jai waited and others retreated towards hostel.

I and Jai went back near the bushes. We could hear a faint cry coming from behind the bushes.

We tip toed towards the spot and the scene that I saw with my naked eyes stopped our heart beats.

There were two men in the age group of 40’s and they were busy in molesting a boy of ten years. The boy was shivering with fear and crying in faint voice.

“Chup Raho…else you will be eliminated if you don’t cooperate. If you cooperate, we will give you lots of gifts.”

I had heard in news but never ever confronted with such incident.

We were in a state of fix. What to do next?

Anyhow, we managed to move out from the place without making any noise and after going few furlongs away from the site, I called up my friends and briefed them about the incident and the place and asked them to inform the police.

I called my mother and told her about the incident that I saw. She got nervous and told me, “Beta, Shhh, Don’t tell anyone about this incident. Don’t go out of hostel.”

“Why Mom…why you don’t want me to tell anyone? Someday, I can be the victim. Just feel the pain of that boy and how his parents will react if they come to know. There is nothing to hide. I have informed my friends and asked them to inform police so that he can be spared.” I said and tears welled in my eyes.

PS: It is a piece of fiction but the incident illustrated is sad truth and the society perspective to hide such incidents are actually encouraging the morons and such incidents are on spree.

    We often witness scenarios where the victims of such grievous act are shamed for no fault of theirs. This story perfectly highlights that.

    Very sad but true. Instead of speaking out many believe that it’s better to stay quiet and let wrong things happen
