Why Apathy is Normal
If you think Kanhaiya Lal lost his wife and baby to apathy, think again.
It wasn't apathy. It was what was expected.
Any society that gives discrimination social sanction and institutionalizes it, is bound to ascribe zero value to human life. I must admit, there may be exceptions to such 'expected' behavior in such societies, but they are just that, exceptions!
For now, we must mourn the death of a mother and her baby. What we must mourn more is our collective lack of humanity! The surviving Kanhaiya and his son didn't stand a chance at getting help. When our time comes, we won't too.
Shame on us!
