Product Description

Real-life stories of victims of child sex abuse who emerged victorious!

Harish Iyer is a survivor nay he is a thriver of child sex abuse. He is an award winning social activist who first shared his disturbing story of his sexual abuse on the television show Satyamev Jayate and who gave voice to the issue when most would be silent. Harish's story will tear the reader apart. He suffers abuse at the hands of his uncle Satheesh, from the time he was seven. Harish was threatened that his parents would be killed if he did not submit to his uncle's and sometimes his friends barbarism. Until one fine day when Harish musters up the courage and says 'No!' He takes his mother into confidence who supports him, but Harish's woes do not end there. He is castigated by society, his own father believes Harish to be at fault and so begins Harish’s solo battle to help other sufferers like himself.

There are others noted film director Anurag Khashyap, a victim of incest and sexual abuse, not once but many times over. Jai, living in a Mumbai high rise suffers abuse and a now 34-year-old mother who suffered sexual abuse as a 12 year old. The stories in The Bad Touch will shock, horrify, sadden, repulse and numb the reader. But underlying them is the small ray of hope that if the immediate family is sensitive enough to the signals a child may send out, he or she may be rescued from being victimized. This book is a mission to help ebb the trauma of survivors and inspire them with stories like Harish's and to create awareness of the issue of child sex abuse amongst parents/guardians.
