Just yesterday I read the news that Mumbai Teeneger has been kidnapped for ransom of 2 crore rupees(20 million). As I was reading the news, I was thinking yet another kidnapping and yet another ransom and everything will be fine. Then comes news today morning that kidnappers murdered him. That was disturbing. Just couldnt understand the ways of the world. How cruel.

Couple of things about this case left me disturbed. Police say kidnappers were friends of this teen and that they first met over ORKUT online community. Also, this teen got into rich wild habbits of car racing and late nights away from home.
To me, online community is good social networking place on internet but after my yahoo password was hacked and personal details flashed over internet, I got scared. Still am. I would advice everyone particularly the teens and innocents to be careful who you meet and make sure you really know the stranger from internet before you open up your private life diary in front of him/her.
Also Parents should know that anytime thier kids are doing nights out, its time to start worrying. Most of the times, peer group wanting to do wild things at night are out of control and I know from personal experience that most of them have scant respect for law or society. This ultimately gets them in trouble almost all the time and we have millions of cases where families have to regret later.
If we are to cry later, why not take time to rein in kids at first place? After all it is for everyone's benefit.
