Description:

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.

Harishs 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 uncles 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 Harishs woes do not end there. He is castigated by society, his own father believes Harish to be at fault and so begins Harishs 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.
