"Freak accident kills five kids"
Delhi, 4 April: A car ran over five homeless kids who were sleeping on the footpath yesterday. There is no clue yet of the culprit though the police...
For abducted, run away, disowned kids who find themselves on harsh, unforgiving Indian streets.
Hit us, use us, make us cry,
What are we but expendable low-lives?
Abduct, incapacitate, make us beg,
Till even our tears are no more ours to shed...
Parade us in dingy streets,
in alleys where even shadows weep,
Exploit us, fear not the sleeping law,
For we are but voiceless kids.
