JUS­TICE, FI­NALLY!

The Supreme Court's de­ci­sion to up­hold the death sen­tence awarded to the con­victs in the Nirb­haya gang rape and mur­der case has come as a huge re­lief for all. While Nirb­haya's par­ents state that their trust in the ju­di­ciary has been reaf­firmed, they also hope that the hang­ing is not de­layed, as only that will send out a stern mes­sage and stop po­ten­tial rapists from com­mit­ting the crime. We can­not agree more with them!

HELP, NEEDED!

The mass sui­cide of 11 mem­bers of the Bha­tia fam­ily in Delhi was dread­ful! What was even more shock­ing was that the sui­cides were con­ducted on the or­ders of the el­dest mem­ber of the fam­ily as a way to reach God. While men­tal health ex­perts are putting it down to a syn­drome called ‘shared psy­chotic dis­or­der', it is ter­ri­fy­ing that we as a so­ci­ety are still not do­ing enough to ac­knowl­edge and ad­dress men­tal ill­ness in the coun­try.

WEL­COME MOVE

The plas­tic ban in Ma­ha­rash­tra has been get­ting a very en­cour­ag­ing re­sponse. It's nice to see every­one on the road carry cloth and pa­per bags. Life with­out plas­tic may seem im­pos­si­ble, but these baby steps will surely go a long way in help­ing us do our bit to con­trol the dam­age that is be­ing done by plas­tic to our en­vi­ron­ment.

AP­PLAUSE WOR­THY

Your June 2018 is­sue fea­tur­ing Vidya Balan on the cover was lovely. The ac­tress came across as pretty hon­est in the ‘I Be­lieve'. The ‘An­niver­sary Spe­cial' su­per women were also very in­spir­ing. Con­tinue to mo­ti­vate us with your riv­et­ing reads, and a happy an­niver­sary to every­one at Team ‘SAVVY'!

SHINE ON!

It was a very proud mo­ment for In­dia when Hima Das be­came the first In­dian athlete to claim a gold in the IAAF World U-20 Ath­let­ics Championships in Fin­land. It was es­pe­cially de­light­ful to see her run on the ground with the tri­colour on her back. Go girl, get the Olympic gold now!
