Ugly Family Secrets

Ugly Family Secrets is an article written by another of my fellow writers at the Writing in India Yahoo group, Jane Henry.

It reveals the startling prevalence of child sexual abuse in Indian families and the importance of addressing it. Please read her article at Ugly Family Secrets

Jane also would like you to know that there are currently24-hour national child helplines in well over 50 cities in India. Last year alone the Bangalore helpline(1098) was able to intervene in about 120 cases of child abuse.
