Believe it or Not (Viswasichalum Illenkilum) on Asianet dtd September 12, 2011

The program 'Viswasichalum Illenkilum' (believe it or not) telecast on Asianet T.V on 12th September, 2011 would have definitely melt every heart and wet every eye that watched it.

We have been seeing and hearing many incidents of cruel fathers killing their children. some times on the outbreak of fury and some times because of long lasting hatred and frustrations. But that that took place in Kannoor of Kerala recently is much different from any such incident and will make anyone cry bitterly again and again.

Any happening, movie or T.V program cannot create this much impact on the minds of people like young Shijith's brutal murder by his own drunken father, Shaji.

Shijith was a young boy studying 9th class. After school he used to wash trucks and vehicles and earned some money for the maintenance of his family, which his father did not do. He took care of his two younger brothers and sister. And ironically he had to give money to his father for his daily drink, which he was happily doing...!

Even on the ill-fated day, poor Shijith earned some Rs.500/- and bought rice for Rs.250 and gave the rest to his father who asked him for it. His father who came home late night, fully drunk, wanted his son to buy him a 'cigarette lighter' immediately. The mother who tried to wake-up the little boy, who was fast asleep after a day's hard work, failed. Then the drunken father started hitting the poor boy very cruelly. Then that father poured water on him and then hit his head against a wall which was fatal for the poor boy...!

Though his father then rushed for a taxi to take him to a hospital, it was too late.

Though this is one among many such cases, it is very much different as here the boy was so good and responsible more than his age...! He never hated or disliked his father, though the later usually behaved with him cruelly when boozed.

This incident should open the eyes of all and the authorities/government must take appropriate steps to prevent the recurrence, as these types of things happen in many poor houses in India.
