I don't know if you are aware of this custom or may have see in it on the news like i did. It was aired last nite on the local news. Apparently in India? it is a custom where small naked babies are dropped back first off a several story building onto a round tarp that breaks their fall while all the adults are gathered around watching this spectacle. I was horrified and this triggered strong primal feelings in me. I could hardly believe my eyes. The news people showed no revulsion or strong feelings of disgust at this practice. They simply seemed to accept it without any emotion. I had the feeling they viewed it as an old custom that really did no harm. I could only imagine the fear those tiny babies must have felt. It made me sick to my stomach.
Thank you for this information.
