In The Arms Of An Angel...

I'm back guys. Thanks for the wonderful messages and yeah I had a FANTASTIC break. Loads of things to share with you on that, but first of all I want to share the story of a little girl from Perth, Western Australia (pic on left). Little Sophia was only 8yrs old and was with her 14yr old brother, 11yr old sister and her uncle last Monday in a popular Perth shopping centre. Sophia wanted to go to the toilet, so while the others waited outside for her (just metres away from the toilets), Sophia went in but didn't come back. She was raped and murdered inside the toilet by a 20yr old man and it only took him few minutes to do the gruesome act. It was a shocking tragedy that got the whole of Australia together last week. This should never have happened and that too while her family was very close by not knowing what was happening inside the toilet...she's only 8yrs old for goddsakes! It was such a horrible crime that she was left dead on the floor with no clothes on and most of her bones broken. How can anyone, I mean any human ever do such a thing to a little girl? I can't understand how and why people get such cruel and animalisitic thoughts in them that they can really go and do something so violent like that? Imagine the horror, pain, helplessness and the fear she must have felt at the time? Little Sophia will be laid to rest today, and her Year 3 classmates wil be honoring her and bidding her farewell in a public funeral in Perth. One good lesson we can learn from this horrible tragedy: Love CAN conquer Evil...so please let Love come in to your hearts and never let evil win over. And those who are parents, if you have small children with you, always be close to them...never leave them alone in public places. This could have been your daughter, sister, friend or neighbor. I can't even imagine what Sophia's family must be going through right now.

I want to say that no matter how much fun I had last week, I can't get Sophia out of my head. She's in my prayers and in my thoughts. We won't forget the brave little girl you were and the love that you shared in your short time here on Earth with the people you knew. Goodbye Sophia, it's your time to live with the angels...

THE ANGELS
Did the angels come from heaven
to help you through that night
Did they feel your terror
And take away your fright.
Did the angels bear the pain
That was being done to you
Did they hear your cries of fear
And stayed to help you through.
Did the angels hold you tightly
The way I would of done
Did they know how I would feel
And wish they were the one.
Did the angels cry out loudly
For the unjustness of your plight
Did they call Lord Jesus
And lead you to the light.
Did the angels softly kiss your cheek
Before you took your leave
Did they remind you how we loved you so
And forever more we'd grieve.
Did the angels whisper in your ear
Don't worry you will not go alone
Did they know part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

saby said...

SHIT !
i tot dis sort of ting happened only in sex starved India

Kumar Chetan said...

This is a shame.
The man must be stoned in public. If there is more that can be done to this guy do it.

saby said...

its the sign of the times
i tink its the break up of the family unit

children today dont have stable homes

parents are too pre-occupied wid themselves

no time to nurture
no time to be wid their young children
working moms
no quality time to give their children
no breast feeding no more
no time to teach values
no family dinner
no family prayer
no church
no religion

its the end of the world

Trée said...

Tragic beyond words, beyond comprehension.

burf said...

v sad

that guy should be hanged

Apy said...

Damn!!! These kinda rapists should be tortured before executing them.... I feel so sorry for the kid

lil _kath said...

Oh my God...how can someone do that? it breaks my heart reading this...esp. i am from all only-girls family of 8 and i have my lil rina with me so i dunno how can i survive if something happened to anyone of them. ;(
...many things happening here in Japan too nowadays , we're also scared of such crimes now so we bought Rina her own cellphone w/ GPS so that when shes playing w/ her friends( sometimes we let her but not always and probably i go w/ them in the nearby park) we need to know her exact location and hubby never let me go to work again just to take care of rina and look after her all the time.

..whats happening to the world? where can our children play safe now?..that sometimes even with our presence something will happened to them like this??

kandykane said...

your articles are so 'full of life' ... i envy your enthusiasm at times, and i wish i was like you.. i wish i could stay happy always and not let 'others' affect me.
the poem is wonderful, and the kid is really cute :-) most importantly ur a beautiful human being.

Nikita said...

That was so gruesome and disgusting.

In another incident, in Mumbai there was a 10 year old domestic maid who was raped and killed by her employer's daughter while her employers were away.

SamY said...

there are plenty of human out there who are so depraved that they are still animals ... if u remember u once wrote about punishments in the middle-east ... now dun u think the guy who did this warrants such a punishment and more :-/ ... IMO he doesn't deserve to live the least ... not like me to say but still ... he deserves to experience as much a painful death as that kid did :(

I only hope the gal passed away quickly ... n for her sake, I hope she does have another life ... to live in full ... or just live with angels forever

and welcome back b'day baby :) ... everybody missed u here ... its been what two whole weeks :-o ... since u claimed to be the person coz of whome ausi stays lit all the while ... light up the blogworld

been bogged with work over the week (with a near 24 hr spree) n quite a bit of fun over the weekend ... now am all fresh n fired up for mountain loads of new stuff :)

what havya been upto all the while :-?

saby said...

dis child seems to be of oriental origin
mebbe it is a crime of hate

the whites hate the blacks and the browns and the yellows

we hate muslims
the protestants hate catliks and vice versa

some time back we heard of the dot bursters in UK
indians are a threat to the local population
we work too hard
our quality of work is far superior
we are cheap
hence we steal jobs

the malayalis were hated by the goans and other communities in the Gulf

coz malayalis work for little or nothing in the Gulf
u get one malayali in
he brings the rest of his clan
and soon u get thrown out


jobs are scarcer now
hence the huge fight against reservation for the backward classes in India

its the end of the world
when man hates man

Masd said...

Welcome back
It was the gruesome story. I feel so bad. Angel is tortured and killed. The pondering should be what contribute to the making of such monsters?

Known Stranger said...

my pleasure

Het Waghela said...

First of all me missed you a lot!

Welcome back Ms Keshi!

About the post, that person must be butchered, he must be sent to rehab for mental treatment. Why do people do such offends.

Kids at this age are angels!

GOD bless here soul!

the sunflower said...

incidents like these come into the limelight, hog the newsprint and airwaves and ppl are angry about them. it scares mothers to send their children out and fathers are constantly worried anout their families. in general, ppl carry fear in their hearts. after a few days, the hype dies down and ppl move on with their lives... the residual fear remains, but nobody does anything about it. after some time, another incident happens and the cycle repeats itself. it has become just so common in India... it angers me that these things happen and it angers me that i can't do anything about it.

brute said...

thts reaaly sad

Ekta said...

:-(
thats such a horrible incident...i do hope the guy gets caught and justice gets done!
Unfortunately all around the world there are so many more gruesome incidents done to children and women and so many of them go unnoticed and unrecorded!
Btw glad to have u back!!....huggzz

christabelle said...

oh Keshi,
I was so excited that u were bck, only 2 read this story, my heart is almost broken, I mean how can pple be this cruel, an 8yr angel, oh my God!!

y is the world full of wickedness like this, why??? hm.

Oh God, may her gentle soul rest in peace, my prayers r with the family at this traumatic time.

prithz said...

OMG Keshi... i couldnt even read it completely... so disgusting and pathetic... I cant imagine that someone could to so cruel to such an innocent soul...terrible... i have no more words Keshi... Let's hope sophia's family have the courage to tolerate this loss and may Sophia's soul rest in peace with the angels...

Madhu said...

keshi nice to have u back.

When i first saw sophia's snap, i was thinking to myself, what a cute kid. As i read ur post,i couldnt help but cry, I didnt expect such a tragedy.

Sophia didnt deserve such an end, nobody does! Rapists are monsters and dont deserve any bit of sympathy.

I hope this mad person is caught and given the punishment he deserves.

KJ said...

i cried when i read ur post.

May god bless the lil angel's soul...

That guy shud be given the WORST POSSIBLE PUNISHMENT for his crime.

i wonder wat kind of world are v bringing up our children in? what is happening in the world? are our children safe?

Sophia is in our prayers...

KJ

ash said...

Good, touching post Keshi!

Amidst life, we are in death
Amidst tragedy, there is happiness!

A side note to Saby,

Do not despair. All is not lost. It is not the end of the world , if even one person cares!

My prayers go out to lil Sophia, and her family!

:: The Protector :: said...

atrocious.........

may her soul RIP

Sujit said...

thats horrible.. very sad.. hope she rests in peace .. and god blesses her..!... Good you have fantastic weekend.. great!..

Ghost Particle said...

Its sad to read a post like this after a while. But it happens everyday...
//Imagine the horror, pain, helplessness and the fear she must have felt at the time? //

Painfull isnt it, but i believe being helpless is much more painfull. And the feeling of the parents not being there, that was worst. Why on earth do the young ones have to suffer because of lust, because of lunatics and bastards/ sadists who we ourselves helped flourish. They are children fof gods sake, god...doesnt exists. We must see the change.

Sometimes we take liberty to extreme extents, but I believe there must be some kind of conservativeness. Maybe a lookout, some kind of life-guard in all malls, public places should be established. Everyday when the children go to school, parks etc.

This is so sad, I pray that the person who raped her is caught or better still die.

Jeevan said...

This is world we are living now. Even her smiles haven’t finish, but she is not in the earth. The court should give seviar punishment for that guy. Will pray for his soul to live happily at least in the heaven. Welcome back Keshi, I was looking forward to read your enjoy, but I know your are not in the mind to write your fun days. Take care.

Alapana said...

Pathetic,if there is any worse punishment in this world may he get that.I am speechless,the kid is gone,Just because of some lunatic? and no one can do anything,hate that feeling

Contented said...

Hey Mateey!! Good to be back isnt it...:D

Very Sad story to hear the story of Little Angel "Sophia". There was similar story in singapore (while I were there) where 10 year or so girl was happened to be kidnapped, raped and murdered by her mother's friend. It took a week or so to find the girl's body. I guess the man was sentenced to death...if not for life in prison...I dont really remember the sentence but it was indeed a serious one. Specially country like singapore deals very hardly with such crimes...

If death penalty is accepted in Australia...The guy whoever did such cruel act deserves the maximum penalty. Once I wrote in my blog what the purpose of Death penalty as it cant undo what happend and cant allow the person to reform. But Now I realize in this case it should be for deterrence of the rest of the masses from committing the same crime...

SaffronSaris said...

This is terrible, and for it to happen in a crowded shopping mall. Parents should accompany their children to the toilets as much as possible.

Fletcher Beaver said...

So what exactly was God, the supreme power, doing when little Sophie was in that toilet block with the mad man?

SCRIBBLEZ TO WAKEUP said...

This is sad...Worse cases like this are only on the rise...Its such a shame that we theo called civilised session have carnivores looming around...I am sad, bitter, angry and a whole of of mixed emotions. These demented people have to be detected early and just sent to rehab as it is always late after they have committed the crime..People who rape kill such small baby girls are no normal people...They sure have a mental imbalance to extent we cant fathom.

I dont think i can write more. its very depressing! As you said everyone be AWARE

Mr. J said...

Sick!!!

Shuba said...

bad thats bad!I jus wonder how he can be so beastly!jus horrible!

Rachel Heather said...

Words cannot discribe how hearing that story made me feel.

It disgusts me that there are people like that in this world.

Welcome back, I missed ya tons :)

Keep praying for my doggie :(

Neha said...

this is so awful.. makes me wanna go and kill that guy.. such an innocent life.. destroyed.. how can people do this!! are such people even worthy of being called humans..

it just makes me feel so horrible everytime i hear or read abotu something like this.. how.. why..why o god why..

Yashita said...

my god!!!! wen I first saw her pic I thot wat a sweet girl...maybe this post is about childhood memories or something about kids...I even thot for a sec tat, it must be ur childhood pic! then rem'd how u look and then thto naah,this is not keshi's pic...I was shocked after areing this post!

it always baffles me, u know! I mean why kidS??????????????? for crissake!! they are still soo small!!

anyway rape can never be justified!
I hope they arrested the guy who perpetrated this crime! and I hope they castrate him!!

Orikinla Osinachi. said...

Incredible horrors like this gruesome rape and murder of a child make me believe more that the devil really exists. Because, no human could have done such a horrible thing when people were nearby.

I mean it does not make sense to me.

If this happened in an isolated and deserted place, I would have been able to comprehend it and blame the family for leaving their beloved daughter to wander so far away and fall into terrible hands. But this happened within a busy public place.

Should we now ask for security guards to be stationed in public toilets?

How did a male predator gain access into a female toilet and he was not discovered before he pounced on an innocent child and murdered her?

When I hear or read such terrible things, I know that the devils are in our midst.

I am numb.

We must beware of everybody.
And we must be beware everywhere.

Never leave your children alone no matter where you are.

Orikinla Osinachi. said...

Saby,
most of the blogs in your Sabyclopedia have not been updated since last March.

What's happening?

Cheers and God bless.

The Phoenix said...

We all know that love can conquer evil...but when things like this happen, you still have to wonder about that.

Such a horrible thing...

Cinderella said...

I'd come up so happily to read another fine post and what i found leaves me completely speechless.

I never understand why men do this,since that sex is so easily available in the market...pay and get laid with any girl you like.

Why do you have to kill,why do you have to rape,why do you have to forget that the female isnt just a female,its a child for chrissakes !!

It makes me physically and emotionally drained out and dark to step outta my house and face the world...what shit is this world anyway??

All it knows is sex and violence.
Damn..!!Isnt there anyway out??

Cinderella said...

I dunno if i should be using your space to say this but ceratin comments here make me wonder that people actually read posts or just drop in so that a comment at their blogs is ensured??

Somebody just noticed that the child was cute and refers to this post as enthusiastic !!

Man some hypocrisy !!

Arti Honrao said...

Heart-wrenching!
Unfortunately so many of such incidences keep happening around us all the time! People like these are bringing hell out on earth

May the girls' soul rest in peace

AnonymousBlogger said...

Well first, welcome back Keshi.

A sad story for sure. I find it unfathomable that someone could do that. It's sad that parents can't let their children leave their sight for even a minute.

I feel bad for her family, knowing what was done to their daugher.

ANKIT said...

hi there,,!

i dont know but reading instances like this make me feel that life is a big shit,,,
a.>
8 year old girl.....the only hing i can visualize for her is,,
she persuading her father to buy her a extra dose of ice-cream,,
her mother for yet another toy,,,
pampering her small brother..or ,,getting pampered by the elder ones..!!

cant imagine what the divine soul must have gone thr'..>!

b.>
btw...keshi,,happy birthday,,,i had left a comment on your last blog itself..!!

good to see you back,,cya!

Homo Escapeons said...

As a father I feel RAGE.
As a human I feel shame.
Whatever sort of social deviant did this cowardly cruel act should be executed, resuscitated and then executed again.

Predators like this have a 99.9% rate of recidivism and are virtually untreatable.
At the very least all of them must be completely removed from society.

I lose all sense of justice and compassion with these bastards.
I'm painfully aware of my shortcomings when it comes to dealing fairly(?) with these sociopathic lowlifes. It is terrible that we must hover over our children these days and make them so paranoid of strangers but...here again a parent's worst nitghmare came to life...if a genie granted me three wishes I would donate the first one to parents of child victims. Revenge may be wrong but children are too valuable to waste on some halfassed social experiment..

Dalicia said...

actually, this incident not only happens to 8 yr olds but also to 20plus year old girls. it's happening everywhere. in the airport's bathroom. nowadays, parents wants their kids to be independent. they have no idea what WORLD we live in. is it such a hassle to walk your own kid to the restroom? as much as i feel bad for the kid. parents have to remember that they're responsible for the safety of your kids.

~~Uttara

heyy mwahhhhh thanks babez! how have u been? I missed u all too, so very much!

yeah..may God hold lil Sofia in His arms forever now.








~~Southpaw

hey Southy hows u? How was ur bday?

Disgusting is the word...he was caught straight away and now he's in jail.







~~Saby

na Saby it can happen anywhere.

**parents are too pre-occupied wid themselves

thats true. What my mum said was that she never let us alone when we were little...she always walked with us to toilets/parks/shops etc. While she is really sorry for Sofia's parents, she said that she never sent me or my sis alone with an uncle even when we were kids. I dunno if it's the right/wrong thing to do, but parents should hold their kids hands until they r big enough to look after themselves.

I dun think it's a racist attack..cos the guy was caught straight away and he seems to be a loner - apparently a child abuser.








~~Kumar_Chetan

hey Kumar!

**The man must be stoned in public. If there is more that can be done to this guy do it.

even I felt like that at the start..then I thought what's the point - cos none of that would brinf Sofia back...would it? He's in jail now. What a loser he is...just to satisfy a few mins' need, he erased the entire life of an innocent child.







~~Tre

hey Tre hows it going?

'Beyond comprehension' are the words! Cos I feel so helpless in a situation like this. Cos this kind of thing happens everywhere and all the time, but we cant do anything abt it and nuttin we do to such criminals can bring the lost lives back.







~~Burf

I say he should suffer in jail for the rest of his life.




Keshi.

Anand said...

not another one!!
Damn..everytime I read something like this I feel more and more angry!
That A******* should be castrated in public!
Sick and dirty minds!

Keshi said...

~~Apy

I dunno Apy...nuttin we do the killer can bring bakk Sofi.







~~Lil_Kath

Kathhh mwahhh hows u?

yes I was thinking of all my friends' lil kids...how horrible to face something like this!

** have my lil rina with me so i dunno how can i survive if something happened to anyone of them.

yeah...Sofia's mum is apparently mourning so much that she didn't wanna even talk at the funeral. They gave a letter to everyone who attended the funeral saying that they hope to meet Sofia some day again in Heaven and that she will show them the way there. Isn't it so heart-breaking!


** we bought Rina her own cellphone w/ GPS

thats great! I see alot of parents doing that these days. It shows that the crime rates have gone up and that we live in constant fear. Isnt that sad.


**hubby never let me go to work again just to take care of rina and look after her all the time.

thats true. My mum always says that that if u have kids, u better lookafter them well and fully.


**that sometimes even with our presence something will happened to them like this??

yes it can happen even with our presence. Life is that fragile and uncertain.







~~KandyKane

hey Kandy!

** wish i could stay happy always and not let 'others' affect me.

well I have come to that state after a very long and hard battle. Like u I used to let ppl affect me. But not anymore. Cos now I have come to realise that only I can make myself happy, not anyone/anything else. :)

Thanks for ur kind words HUGGGGGGZ!








~~Nikita

thats horrible! how sad is that. And it's even worse when poor and innocent kids get tortured this way. We live with some disgusting ppl among us!

If I was anywhere near that toilet that day, I'd fight that loser to save that child, even if it meant my life was in danger. A child should live to grow up and has more rights than any of us.







~~Samy

hey Samy hows u? :)

**if u remember u once wrote about punishments in the middle-east ...

huh?? na I dint write abt punishments in the ME..I wrote abt the Burkha and torture of women. thats all :)


**he deserves to experience as much a painful death as that kid did

ur right...we all feel that he should die. But u know Im a strong opponent of death penalty :) so I dun want to kill this guy...he should spend the rest of his life in jail suffering each second of his life thinking abt his crime on that innocent kid. Death wud be too easy for him.


**... n for her sake, I hope she does have another life ... to live in full ...

aww thats so sweet of u to wish that for her...


hehe thanks and yes I had great fun. A bday party and many more bday parties the whole week thru..and then we went on that harbour cruise again last Sat night for mum's bday. It was FAB!

So u've been busy with ur cuzns? where did u go and what did u do?







~~Masd

Thanks Masd :)

**The pondering should be what contribute to the making of such monsters?

thats true...what kind of upbringing makes such ppl? I really dun get it. Apparently this guy was a worker in the shopping centre itself and was a student in some college. He lived with his parents.







~~Known_Stranger

hey KS hows u?







~~Het_Waghela

hey Hettt thanks n hugggggggz! I missed u too awww...


**About the post, that person must be butchered, he must be sent to rehab for mental treatment. Why do people do such offends.

I dunno Het..I cant even think of such a cruel act I just cant imagine that some ppl can really commit such an act!







~~The_Sunflower

hey Sunflower!


**the residual fear remains, but nobody does anything about it.

true. But what can we really do abt such ppl other than take precautions to be safe? Cruel ppl like that r being born everyday and everywhere...there's nothing much we can do but bring up our own children in a way that they will learn to love, respect and abide by the law and become good citizens of the world.







~~Brute

WC Brute! yes it's awful.







~~Ekta

hey girl how have ya been?

He was caught immediately and is now in jail.


**so many of them go unnoticed and unrecorded!

so true. thats why I wanted to do my bit from this part of the world. awareness is imp and whenever u hear such a thing, it's good to let ppl know so they will be better ppl, better equipped and take better care of themselves.







~~Christabelle

hey Chris hows u?

**y is the world full of wickedness like this, why???

I dunno Chris...no matter how good some ppl r, there's always thieves and idiots ard to wreck some innocent lives.







~~Prithz

hey girl...yes it's so horiible I cant believe that anyone could even think of such an act!







~~Madhu

hey Madhu hows u?

yes this is a senseless tragedy. but wut kinda punishment wud suit this crime and wut wud bring justice to lil Sofia? I think nuttin can ever compensate for the loss to Sofia's family.







~~KJ

hey KJ hows u?

I knew it that as a mother u wud cry reading this...I'm not even a mum yet but I cried too when I heard of this girl. So many tears r being shed for lil Sofia over here...

we live in a world where some ppl like flesh-eating animals...this act brought down the respect I had for the human species. No matter how good some ppl r, there r always animal-like humans among us.







~~Ash

**Amidst life, we are in death
Amidst tragedy, there is happiness!

true, life is so fragile...but I cant see any happiness in this tragedy. dun u think so?







~~The_Protector

~~Sujit

heyyya Sujit! how have u been?







~~Ghost_Particle

hey Ghosty hows it going?

**And the feeling of the parents not being there, that was worst.

yes...imagine her helplessness at that time! If I was in that toilet when it happened, I'd fight for her life. I swear I'd have killed him then n there just to save her, it doesnt matter I'd b committing a crime too. Apparently no one was in the toilets at the time. She was alone. yeah for a moment of lust, he snatched away her entire life!


**Sometimes we take liberty to extreme extents, but I believe there must be some kind of conservativeness.

thats so true. this mall apparently had some 10 security officers but none near the toilets?? its shocking for a country like AUS!


**This is so sad, I pray that the person who raped her is caught or better still die.

he was caught an hour after the act, while shopping ard! Sofia's brother saw this suspicious man coming out of the toilet area so they went and searched for her and found her naked body in a disabled toilet. So the brother identified the guy and now he's in jail.







~~Jeevan

hey Jeevan thanks :)

** Even her smiles haven’t finish, but she is not in the earth.

thats so true...she just started to bloom and her life is over even before it's begun.

~~Contented

heyyyy hows u? I got ur email thanks :)

Raped n murdered by the mother's friend?? What kinda friend is he?? Gawwwwwwwd! I know Singapore has the death penalty. Aus doesnt have it.


** But Now I realize in this case it should be for deterrence of the rest of the masses from committing the same crime...

yes even Im a strong opponent of death penalty..but after hearing of such shocking crimes on kids, I myself feel like killing the b#stards.







~~SaffronSaris

hey Saffy hows u?

**Parents should accompany their children to the toilets as much as possible.

yes. all the Mall toilets here have a similar architecture. A long corridor leads to the Female and Male toilets at the end in a secluded area. So if a kid is let alone to go to the toilet, he/she has to walk a fair bit by him/herself. It's so easy for anyone to snatch them then. Since Sofia was 8yrs old, she must have been capable of going by herself and maybe used to it. But what a tragedy it ended in. Her uncle who was with her at the time should have gone with her and stood outside the toilets till she came out. I'd do that if I'm with a kid. How careless can adults be sometimes.







~~Fletcher_Beaver

**So what exactly was God, the supreme power, doing when little Sophie was in that toilet block with the mad man?

Im sorry Fletcher - I'm afraid I have no answer to ur rather good Qn. These r the times when I even doubt God. Maybe I dun u'stand it now but I hope to some day...







~~Scribblez_To_Wakeup

hey Scribblez huggggggz!

**These demented people have to be detected early and just sent to rehab as it is always late after they have committed the crime.

ur right...he's caught and apparently he abused (not murdered) another lil girl in 2003 but he was set free!!! What a huge mistake the authorities made by setting him free after a minor jail term. That cost a life!

heyy Neha hows u?

yes even I felt like going n killing him..it's that horrible a crime.

like u, I keep asking why God why...and why her?








~~Yashita

hey Yash yeah alot of ppl fell in love with Sofia after seeing that pic. Isnt she ADORABLE!

They caught him and now he's in jail. But nuttin's gonna bring back Sofia isnt it. Well I hope they keep him in jail cos I dun want more kids to go thru wut Sofia went thru.







~~Orikinla_Osinachi

hey hows u? keeping well I hope :)


**make me believe more that the devil really exists. Because, no human could have done such a horrible thing when people were nearby.

yes! I mean wut kinda human heart can even think of doing such a thing?? It sure is a devil that posessed him when he did it.


**If this happened in an isolated and deserted place, I would have been able to comprehend it and blame the family for leaving their beloved daughter to wander so far away and fall into terrible hands. But this happened within a busy public place.

Very true! I mean thats why I wanted to make a post abt her. Cos I know that alot of horrible crimes happen everywhere but this happened in a crowded public place with her family so close by and within few mins! That shows how fragile and shockingly uncertain life can be and also that deprivation of liberty isn't too hard for someone to commit upon anyone.


**Should we now ask for security guards to be stationed in public toilets?

this Mall apparently had 10 security officers! But none near the toilets. Female and Male toilets r usually located close to each other in Malls here. That's one big security issue that cannot be changed easily due to building plans. Also cos of Sofia's death, now Aussie govt is bringing in new security near toilets, which is a good thing.


**How did a male predator gain access into a female toilet and he was not discovered before he pounced on an innocent child and murdered her?

well he must have waited near the long corridor looking for a prey. And Sofia was alone at the wrong place and at the wrong time. Apparently no one else was in the toilets. He had snatched her and locked her in a Disabled toilet while he did his crime. When the brother and uncle came looking for her, it was too late.

**We all know that love can conquer evil...but when things like this happen, you still have to wonder about that.

yes...can it really conquer Evil? Perhaps this guy never knew what love is.







~~Cindarella

hey girl hows u?

yes u r right..we live in a world full of sex-starved losers and violence. Sometimes I wonder if there's any meaning in this world at all. I really do.


**pay and get laid with any girl you like.

yes even I thought so...why cudnt he just go get laid instead of killing a child! now that he's in jail there r no chances that he wud ever get laid in this life - what a LOSER!


hey girl u can say anything u wanna say here :) I have no probs with that.

**here make me wonder that people actually read posts or just drop in so that a comment at their blogs is ensured??

hmmm :):) sometimes I feel that too. But then perhaps they dun fully read it or may no thave had enough time to do so. But ur right - it's always best to read the post fully b4 making comments that may end up sounding unfit. :)








~~Arti_Honrao

WC Arti!

yes it happens all the time...and when it does, we have to promote awareness.

Thanks!








~~AnonymousBlogger

hey AB thanks! Hows u keeping?

**. It's sad that parents can't let their children leave their sight for even a minute.

so true. Sometimes I go to the Mall with my lil niece but I never let go of her hand. NEVER! If we have a kid with us, it's OUR responsibility until we take them bak to their parents.







~~Ankit

hey thanks for the wishes Ankit! I saw all of ur wishes in my last post - I read them all. SO beautiful and special. It felt like a another celebration over here. THANKS A TON!

yeah...when I was 8 I just danced wearing pretty dresses, played with my dolls, giggled with my friends and ate alot of ice cream n jelly. What more can an innocent 8yr old do. Im disgusted each time I think of that loser who killed Sofia.







~~Homo_Escapeons

heyy matey hows u? Good to see u :)


**As a father I feel RAGE.
As a human I feel shame.

Im sure u feel extreme rage cos u urself have kids. I dun even have kids but I feel so much anger at this guy. And yeah as a human I so feel SHAME.


**I lose all sense of justice and compassion with these bastards.

I do too. Im so against the death penalty but when I hear of such losers, I myself feel like taking up the job of an executioner. I seriously do! My compassion dies and sense of justice loses with no trace.


**...if a genie granted me three wishes I would donate the first one to parents of child victims.

yes...those parents must have it the hardest.


**. Revenge may be wrong but children are too valuable to waste on some halfassed social experiment..

so true. children r precious and to have their rights taken away in this violent manner is way too horrible and unfair! Deprivation of liberty is a serious crime and I hope he will never feel liberty again.









~~Elaine

hey Elaine!

Yes it can happen to ppl of any age...for older girls it may be a lil bit easier to fight back and cope with it. but for an 8yr old kid to go thru something like that is beyond our comprehension. She must have just waited not knowing what to do. She's only 8 for heavenssakes!


**is it such a hassle to walk your own kid to the restroom?

thats so true! Even I was thinking why couldnt the bro or the uncle go down that corridor with her upto the toilets? When my mum and I r shopping and if we have to go to the toilet, we still go together. Not cos we r scared of attackers but it's a habit that we stick together when we r together.


**as much as i feel bad for the kid. parents have to remember that they're responsible for the safety of your kids.

Spot on! Kids r precious n innocent lil beings that need to be protected until they r really able to take care of thenselves. It's still so very hard for some parents to realise that..thats the greatest shock to me.

The smile ate reading your post after coming back was completely tempered by reading about what happened to the lil kid.
Things like these have made me question if there is a higher power at times. A special place in hell is probably reserved for sex offenders and child killers. Hope the lil one is in a better place and may her soul rest in peace.

i went thru a sea of emotions reading this...hate & tears being the most prominent...

and i had to wait a good while for all that to subside (a lil atleast) to be able to comment....

being a mother of a toddler it makes me even more insecure and afraid for my child...I never never never keep him out of sight wen m out of the house! But Keshi sooo many such incidents and worse still stories of such sickness within families...who does one trust??

I know one thing, we need to keep our children safe n secure...need to keep constant vigil...teach them the diff between right and rong...never lose sight of them....

and for lil sophia...i pray for her family to be able to move on and to regain strength...to hope that in her tragedy, people learn to understand that children are so vulnerable and they need our protection n love...and understand that sick and perverted minds cld be anywhere...to not get complacent and think, this can't happen to me or my child...it CAN HAPPEN anywhere...with anyone...JUST BE CAREFUL...

*sigh*....this post hurt...(a dull ache in my heart)... keshi...a lot.

PRADEEP K. said...

Perhaps it was in 1999 that there had been an article in Sunday Times, which explained how a 62 year-old man had raped his neighbour's 7 year-old daughter.

Initially denying his involvement in the rape, he eventually told the girl's mother that he was HIV positive and had wanted to "cleanse" himself by having sex with a virgin.

I am not sure that incidents like these ever occur in any other species in the animal kingdom. I have not heard/read of even wild beasts raping their young one.

I believe that we are paying the price for being born human.

**does he get sentenced ?

yes he will be on trial soon. He's in jail right now. But Aus dun have Death Penalty. Prolly a life sentence.


**oh man ! the guy is so young too .... just out of his teens !

yes he's young too. But he's much older than Sophia and he should have known better. But he will be tested for mental illnesses etc. So his punishment depends on all of that. But poor lil Sophia wont be here again will she.

HUGGGGGGGGGGGGZ Ish I MISSED U! So good to see u.

**i went thru a sea of emotions reading this...hate & tears being the most prominent...

awww Ish Im sorry if my post made u upset...u ok now? Yes Sofia's shocking death haunted me for days...such things affect me alot. When I first saw her pic I cried. Just look at that innocence radiating all over her face. How can anyone hurt a kid?


**I never never never keep him out of sight wen m out of the house! But Keshi sooo many such incidents and worse still stories of such sickness within families...who does one trust??

thats so true. I put up this post for awareness...not only for saying goodbye to her and for prayers. ppl need to realise that if they have kids, that they have to take good care of them and protect their rights. I know ur a very sensible and caring mum Ish.


**I know one thing, we need to keep our children safe n secure...need to keep constant vigil...teach them the diff between right and rong...never lose sight of them....

Spot on Ish!


**to hope that in her tragedy, people learn to understand that children are so vulnerable and they need our protection n love...

Thats exactly my point of this post. Anything can happen at anytime. So be on a constant vigil (not fear but vigil).


**to not get complacent and think, this can't happen to me or my child...it CAN HAPPEN anywhere...with anyone...JUST BE CAREFUL...

EXACTLY! alot of ppl think 'oh this is not my child so it's ok'...but it could have been anyone's child! Sofia is someone's child, isnt she.


***sigh*....this post hurt...(a dull ache in my heart)... keshi...a lot.

yes Ish...it's still in me too. And it's not going away. And thats why I couldnt tell u all abt my exciting break...cos I didnt feel all that excited yday as it was Sofia's funeral and it was all over the TV and papers.

U tc now...all we can do is pray for her soul and her family...and we can hug n shed a tear for the departed child.

HUGGGGGGGGGZ Ish!

yeah ! Sophia is lost

and i dont think the void that she left behind will ever be filled up !

her death can only be attributed to fate and bad luck

**I am not sure that incidents like these ever occur in any other species in the animal kingdom.

Yes we r paying the price for being born human. I feel ashamed for being human after this tragedy.

i think rapists should castarated n killed a year later - a murderer i can forgive but not a rapists

Well atleast they caught the guy right? he didnt get away.
Its awfully tragic what happened and disgusting, all I can say is that hopefully it will raise enough awareness to stop such things from happening again.
Last week an 80 year old got raped in Noida, India. Makes you wonder if you are ever safe at any age?

nishu said...

shit.that was the most horrible shit i ever eard. how can a man do this. do these ppl. have no backbone. they deserved to be publically flayed. i jus cant believe how can a human do this.crap. how must have the girl felt she has just enetered the world and she had to leave like this. i just cant imagine the pain.almost nobody will ever.why did she have to deserve this .she did not do anything wrong.nobody can deserve this. men in our world r losing sight of their own morality. its takin damn amt. of time to sink in. i don think it will ever sink in. helll with it.

One is not safe from rapists at any age. They are not after sex, they are after domination.
What a lovely little angel. This makes the tough old bat cry! I have a recent post about another crime against a helpless child on my random thoughts blog. There is truly evil in this world and until this kind of sick crap stops, nothing can convince me otherwise.
May peace somehow come to her grieving family and may there be peace on her soul.

Sudarshan said...

Nice to see you back:-)

This is indeed disgusting. I thought things were different in Australia!!! Rape is one of the worst things ever that needs to be eradicated from society!!

Such offenders should be publicly stoned to death!!! Indeed sad:-( I feel sorry for the poor girl..she looks so sweet:-(

Within Without said...

Welcome back, Keshi, and the Sara McLachlan song goes very well with the brutality and beauty, respectively, of the two people in your post.

I too obviously feel rage and bewilderment at how something like this can happen.

But it will happen today in Canada, India, the U.S., Australia, and every other country.

Like someone else said, these things touch us with sadness and outrage and disgust for the moment, but then they fade away.

Our brains and hearts aren't built to absorb this kind of ugliness, so we shut down and run back into the safety of our own houses and slam the door shut and say we won't let it happen to us.

But it still can and does.

And what of the 20-year-old guy who did this? He'll be protected by Australia's rights and freedoms legislation, he'll take up resources and time in the country's prison system, he'll be a goldmine for lawyers, the debates about capital punishment or chemical castration will rage on again...

And none of us will ever be able to understand what cracks he fell into to turn out this way, to be capable of doing something like this, and so it will continue on and on and on.

His lack of humanity as we understand it, and her death, are byproducts of the far too rapid overdevelopment of a species that isn't wired for it.

That's about as much sense as I can make of it.

PRADEEP K. said...

Yes, Keshi, a 62yr old raping a 7yr old!

But hey, he did give his reasons, didnt he? I admit he was not very rational, but then who the heck really cares about rationale anyway?

In a world where every person claims that (s)he has a right to say/write/do what (s)he wants, with the least possible regard to reality and common sense, and where people break pious friendships just because they are asked to think before they express, I think his answer was justified.

Someone told him that he would be cured of AIDS if he had sex with a virgin. Who could promise him virginity better than a 7yr old?
_____

Rights my foot! Those people who claim that they have every right to do/say/write whatever heck they want to in their space often do not realize that their words or actions affect so many other inoccent people.

That little girl of 7, or the Sophia you mentioned, or the so many other little girls who are being sold every day at the brothels of our own beloved city, Calcutta... Their souls cry to us, Keshi.

It is no joke, but I have seen no animal selling its young one in a brothel. But I have seen a father sell his 10yr old daughter at Calcutta.

When I questioned him, he responded just like some of our blogmates - "This is my daughter, and my space, and you have no damn right to question me!"
_____

Jail, Keshi? Jail? Are you not being too lenient, my dear?

It is people like him who alter the perspective about an entire species.

If women worldwide do not trust men, it is because of men like him!
_____

Sad as it may sound Keshi, yes the child is very much alive, and she will have to live with her horrendous memories.
_____

Keshi, I am sorry if I have used this space to vent out a few of my personal emotions.

I am, my dear, going through a pretty rough patch with most of my friends as of now.

If you would be kind enough to email me in your free time my dear, I shall try to explain everything. Please do bear with me for the time being, Keshi.

I earnestly hope that you don't consider any of my words here to be unwarranted or insensible.

Thanking you profusely,
I remain, my dear Keshi,
Lovingly yours,
PRADEEP K.

keshi..nice to see u back. but this post made me really sad. the same thing happenend in Las Vegas a couple years ago , a 7yr old was raped and murdered in a similar way.I dont k now how anyone can hurt a child.my thoughts and prayers are with her family.

yes girl I had tonz of fun thanks :) And how was ur break?






~~Visithra

This guy is worse than a b#####d...worse than an animal even. He had told the police that it was a sudden 'urge' thing..what a loser!

ur right..they should be dying a slow death...thats why I believe that death penalty is too easy for them.






~~Aditi

hey Aditi!

yep he got caught real quick cos Sofia's bro saw him leaving the toilet where Sofia's body was found.

**hopefully it will raise enough awareness to stop such things from happening again.

Awareness is very imp and that's why I put this post up too. Cos it can happen to anyone and we need to be on a constant vigil wherever we r.

80yr old got raped? Must be some mental patient who did it. Here in Aus too a 93yr old granma got raped 2yrs ago and she was such a tough lady she bit his hands and injured the guy - he was only 17yrs old and was later found by the Police cos of his scars!







~~Nishu

**why did she have to deserve this .she did not do anything wrong.

thats exactly what my thoughts r...why a small innocent child like her?

**There is truly evil in this world and until this kind of sick crap stops, nothing can convince me otherwise.

alot of ppl think that the developed countries r crime-free. Not at all! Alot of rapes n murders happen here too. ppl r ppl anywhere na. Countries may be at the top of Economic bliss but ppl's hearts need to be cleansed only by them.


**Rape is one of the worst things ever that needs to be eradicated from society!!

I dun think even animals rape...why humans behave like this?








~~Within, Without

Thanks WW :) Hope ur doing well.

**the Sara McLachlan song goes very well with the brutality and beauty, respectively, of the two people in your post.

Thats so well-analysed by u...thanks!


**But it will happen today in Canada, India, the U.S., Australia, and every other country.

true..cos ppl r the same everywhere and times dont change some ppl's animalistic nature.


**run back into the safety of our own houses and slam the door shut and say we won't let it happen to us.

thats so true...isnt that sad. And like u said, what ppl dun realise is that it CAN still happen to us too.


**And what of the 20-year-old guy who did this? He'll be protected by Australia's rights and freedoms legislation,

ur right...Aus has rights and freedom laws for criminals too and it was stated that Dante Wyndham (the child killer) will get a 'fair' trial. WHY? What abt Sofia's rights and freedom? I dun u'stand the law sometimes - It's heavily flawed!


**he'll take up resources and time in the country's prison system, he'll be a goldmine for lawyers...

Spot on! This is what's gonna happen for sometime now when all Sofia's family can do is feel the horrible emptiness in their home!


**And none of us will ever be able to understand what cracks he fell into to turn out this way, to be capable of doing something like this, and so it will continue on and on and on.

yeah no one will know why he did that...only he wud u'stand his SORRY state.


**His lack of humanity as we understand it, and her death, are byproducts of the far too rapid overdevelopment of a species that isn't wired for it.

Praddy hows u? awww thats no good that ur not doing too well with ur friends these days...well rem the rough times I had with few friends here quite recently..and how I was very sad and down? Well I'm over it now. Cos if certain friends misunderstand u then they r not worth ur time and energy Praddy...just move on.


**In a world where every person claims that (s)he has a right to say/write/do what (s)he wants,

well no one has the right to DO what they want. They may have the right to think and say what they want to but certainly not to DO what they want, no ways! Just cos someone told him he wud be cured by having s#x with a virgin, HE DOES NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO HAVE S#X WITH SOMEONE WITHOUR HER CONSENT OR TO RAPE A CHILD! There's no FREEDOM OF ACT...only freedom of speech - and that too we dun have the right to use abusive words on ppl.


**"This is my daughter, and my space, and you have no damn right to question me!"

he's selling his young daughter which is a crime. u and I may not have the right to question him but the law does. so he's a criminal irrespective of us not being able to question his deeds.

I have seen a documentary on child s#x workers in Culcutta. It was not a very nice thing to watch...I had tears in my eyes and so much pain in my heart..more for me being able to nuttin abt it than just watch it!

Hope u sort out ur probs with the friends involved Praddy. Just a take a break from trying to explain to friends what u feel...cos sometimes ppl neva u'stand u and it's good to be silent and chill doing wut u like to do. tc n hugggggggz!








~~Eclipsed_Thoughts

hey hows u? :)

**Dont they have something called conscience???

Exactly my Qn! Arent we all born with something called 'conscience'?
What this tragedy tells me is that
conscience is something that has to be developed and nurtured healthily as we grow up..this killer obviously didnt get that training.

.... wasted tears
, ,
tears are cheap
we have to go to the root of the prob

in my humble opininon i feel its working moms

raising a child is a full time job
right from conception, to delivery, and nurturing starting with breast feeding


followed by his/her first step
his/her first heart break
teaching about the birds and the bees

teaching loving and living in harmony

man is to provide food and shelter
woman must stay home and mind baby

its all in the Bible
read it Sophia
, ,
what do u say Orikinla ?

saby said...

when we hear such stories
we try to make sure it wont happen to us

so we have a double lock on our door
we hire security guards

wat about the payment dwellers?
spare a tot for dem too

saby said...

, ,Modern life ..., ,
my nephew works in a call centre on shifts

he married a girl in the call centre

together they take home a salary of 1 Lakh

they have no children
they work on different shifts

i am not buying dis
more likely they dont want to have children yet

dis is the right child bearing age though, for a healthy child

delivery becomes more difficult as u age

OK modern science can take care of dat

but wat about raising the child ?
will they leave it to Nana ?

saby said...

punishing the 20 yo rapist wont solve dis prob

he is innocent in the eyes of God
he was not nurtured


read the lyrics of IN THE GHETTO the elvis song

the root cause is probably working moms

Keshi said...

~~Saby

u may be right...but we cant blame it all on working mums. Sometimes non-working and good mums end up with beastly children too. And some working mums end up with great kids too. It's all in the individual with a lil bit of help from the loved-ones too.

Darius said...

It is truly difficult to comprehend that kind of act - to get your heart and mind around the fact that one person is capable of doing that to another.

Someone like that must get twisted early on. I mean, it's not even really an animal-like act. Animals don't behave that badly. Somehow sexuality gets involved with violence with some males. I've never been able to "get it" emotionally - to feel what that would be like. But it obviously happens.

And without trying to make excuses for this guy or suggest he should be anything but locked up for life, what he did wouldn't, thank God, even be a "temptation" for most of us. So you wonder how he got that way.

saby said...

As the snow flies
On a cold and gray chicago mornin
A poor little baby child is born
In the ghetto
And his mama cries
cause if theres one thing that she dont need
Its another hungry mouth to feed
In the ghetto

People, dont you understand
The child needs a helping hand
Or hell grow to be an angry young man some day
Take a look at you and me,
Are we too blind to see,
Do we simply turn our heads
And look the other way

Good to see you back. People are really becomig animals. Here in Phoenix I think it is because everything is so crowded people snap that and they let sex offenders out of prison. I don't think a few years in prison are going to rehabilitate them.

**Someone like that must get twisted early on.

u have such a beeg heart
must u love just one ?

Love is but a song to sing
Fear's the way we die

You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry

Though the bird is on the wing
And you may not know why

Come on people now
Smile on your brother

Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Some may come and some may go
We shall surely pass

When the one that left us here
Returns for us at last

We are but a moment's sunlight
Fading in the grass

Come on people now
Smile on your brother

Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

If you hear the song I sing
You will understand (listen!)

You hold the key to love and fear
All in your trembling hand

Just one key unlocks them both
It's there at you command

Come on people now
Smile on your brother

Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now

Right now ... Right now.....

Totally Gruesome!
Why did it have to happen?

Anyway, I really appreciate and respect you for focussing on the loving part, rather than on the bittereness towards the perpetrator..

Still this didn`t have to happen :(

Keshi said...

~~Saby

I like that verse...so beautiful.







~~Srijith-Unni

thanks mate!


**I really appreciate and respect you for focussing on the loving part, rather than on the bittereness towards the perpetrator..

yeah cos it's so easy to hate. we got to rem that Sofia died cos of evil in that guy's heart and that we shouldnt fall in the same trap as the killer did.

KL said...

I am absolutely dumbfound and horrified at this news. What!? How can this happen!? She must have gone to the women's restroom - then how can a man be there? What other women were doing there?

What's happening to this world!!?????

Keshi said...

~~KL

hey girl, here in Aus all Mall toilets have a long corridor to walk upto. Then there's Male/Female toilets close to each other. Apparently this girl was snatched while on her way to the Female toilets...she was taken to the Male toilets and then the whole thing has happened. It was a very bad time as apparently no one was in the toilets when she went there. A horrible tragedy!

may her soul rest in peace...

tsduff said...

I have no words, and the grief that threatens to well up as I read your post is better left stuffed back inside right now, as I am at work. This stuff happens all over the world, all the time, and I don't understand it. Thoughfully written as always - but oh so heavy a topic.

Keshi said...

~~Kautilya

WC Kautilya and thanks!
