Artist's Tribute

This candlelit sand sculpture shedding tears of blood on a beach in Sangam, Allahabad, northern India, is artist Raj Kapoor's tribute to the 23-year-old medical student who was gang-raped and badly beaten for an hour on a bus in New Delhi, then thrown from the moving bus. She died of her injuries yesterday and was cremated today. The six men arrested for the rape are now charged with murder and face the death penalty. Their appalling crime has caused outrage and protests across India (CLICK).

Horribly sad. Thanks for posting. I can't quite decipher the Hindi (something hajeli?)

Not my language either. What appalling behaviour by that gang!
