Kidnap and Release of Anant Gupta

I don’t understand why the media is so intrusive behind what happened on the kidnap and release of Anant Gupta (3-Year-old son of Adobe India’s CEO). The truth is important but at the same time the privacy of the affected party too.

Every time I am seeing the news about this incident this week I am reminded of two things. As a father myself of a small kid I feel the pain Anant’s parents would have felt; Second I couldn’t help to think about hundreds of other kids who get kidnapped around the world every day – who are less fortunate to have a high profile father like Anant. My prayers for them.

Update 27/Sep/2011: The child was saved few days after the incident. Now after five years, the three kidnappers get the life term.
