      She wrote, "As a parent as I look out at the world today and I am uncertain of what the future holds for my child. Yes, I am very disturbed - the world is on fire quite literally."

      She continued, "What should have been a chance for an open dialogue turned into a violent push of certain ideologies. The repeated attacks on educational institutions has shaken me and young India. The rage that is building, does not bode well for all of us and I find myself unable to dismiss my fears. Myriad questions crowd my thinking, with no clear answers, Are there any?"

      "As we unfurl our tricolour on our 70th Republic Day, let's pledge to stem the violence and learn to choose peace," concluded Sonali.
