WHEN TOUCH BECOMES TROUBLE...is a story handbook for parents and teachers to understand that child sexual abuse can happen to both biys and girls and the abusers can be males as well as females. This book, I feel is so important because many times parents don’t know how do we tell children what is a Good touch, bad touch? What do we tell them?
Are we broaching a subject, where we should not expose them to something? It is very important for children, for teenagers, to be taught about, good touch, bad touch, what their Rights are etc. I’m going to take this book and give it to my 6 Yr old who has started to read. I wish that each and every parent takes this book and uses it and spreads the word in the Society, in Schools, especially BMC schools. Let’s not wait for the law to come in and let’s not wait for the police to protect you. I think what is important is PREVENTION. Let’s not let our children go through this and that becomes our Responsibility.

Many Mumbaikars participated in the 'First 1000 Steps' March- a joint initiative of The Times of India and Nestle. Konkana, the face of the campaign, flagged off the march from the NCPA to the Air India building at Nariman Point, Mumbai. Malnutrition Awareness is a must. Not just rural areas, a huge percentage of children in urban centres are also malnourished. A recent UNICEF report says that 60% of one lakh children living in slums in urban areas lack essential nutrients.
