Sometime in the last decade, there was a paradigm shift in what we know to be the biggest threats to our kids. If you're wondering how you missed it, it was released in late 2014 in a low-key World Health Organization report (and first reported by The Telegraph earlier this year). Which means that, while we have all been worried about junk food, drunk driving, and dengue, the biggest threats to Indian teens are teens themselves.
I wonder what Sameer's state of mind would have been if, e.g., somebody had been really nice to him on his way back home that day. Anyone: a security guard, a schoolmate, a bus driver. What if someone had smiled at him and perhaps said a few good words?
