Journalists were impressed about terrorist's son, but not about martyr's daughterAround four to five months ago, India's greatest(!) journalists were going ga-ga over a terrorist's son scoring 95% in Xth Board Examination. Barkha Dutt, Rajdeep Sardesai and Sagarika Ghosh tweeted to tell the world about the achievement of Ghalib Guru, son of hanged terrorist, Afzhal Guru.
Sepoy Buta Singh was martyred on 28th May, 1999 at Kargil. His 21 year old widow, Amritpal Kaur, decided to fight the adverse circumstances for the sake of her little daughter. After more than 17 years, the daughter of the martyr, Komal Preet Kaur, topped Punjab Medical Entrance Test in her category.
No wonder, Barkha, Rajdeep and Sagarika are silent about the meritorious daughter and her great mother, who became widow after only 3 years of married life, out of which she could spend only 4 months with her husband!
