An Indian-American girl has sent a video message to Prime Minister Narendra Modi in which she says why she will avoid taking her summer vacation to India. The girl calls herself a “Tamil Indian at heart” and says that the recent incidents in which two young girls were raped have traumatized her and prompted her to not visit the country.
In the video, the 10-year old girl recollects the time when she visited India as a baby. Ms V says that she remembers lots of people and a lot of traffic, however, the people were nice and the food was great.
Though, she is second-guessing those memories now because of what she is hearing on news.
The young girl continues to talk about the recent incident in which an 8-year-old girl was raped and murdered.
