THE SWORD OVER THE TALWARS: DIG A LITTLE DEEPER
Refer to ‘The House We Blew Down’ by Gaurav Jain, 19 February 2011.
I was also under the compulsive impression that who else but the parents are the main accused. However, after reading the article by Gaurav Jain, it emerges that the story may be something else. I hope that you would get active on this and help get the truth out. True, just because the parents don’t cry on national television and show a stoic face does not mean they are heartless. They would surely be crying deep inside, which nobody else can feel. Most go by face value, which can be wrong, swallowing a mistaken verdict in the process. I am not absolving the Talwars, but the case definitely needs to see the truth come out soon, for the departed soul, the Talwars and so many parents of teenage children. You are one of the only few media that could add value to the case by precise investigative journalism. Just like in so many other cases, where due to your efforts, the truth has prevailed. Let this case get its due too. The last line of the article really got me thinking: that when your time comes, your world could turn upside down, just as it happened to the Talwars. It could happen to anybody; you, me and anybody any day.
