“Justice is good when served hot. What has been a cinematic phrase so far has become the reality today and the real heroes – Telangana Police have proved it with their action. I would call this ‘A right act of humanity’ Every woman of this country can mark this date in the calendar as a day of true justice. Speaking about humanity, it’s all about respecting, showing love and compassion towards all with equality. More than rejoicing over the justice served, it is a moment to enlighten and educate the children, especially boys at our homes imparting them the message that men become the hero, when they make this planet a safe place for women.
