If no heed is paid to child’s emotional need, and we fail to protect ‘innocence’ – the dark circle of shame and guilt will engulf us sooner than we can even think of it. Kaala Teeka* is a story of two young girls, Shikha and Poorvi, who are similar in body and spirit but are growing up in distinctly different domestic environments. They each have unpleasant encounters, but their reactions to the episode forewarns us about the people they are becoming. Are we listening to them? Are we as parents and guardians preparing them to face the real dangers lurking in the outside world?
