I was watching Laura Ling’s E Investigates “Designer’s Downfall” the other day, and it was so shocking. I used to read a lot about Anand Jon while I was in India, initially about how he is new big thing and how he was friends with the who’s who. When the case was reported in India, it was from his sister’s point of view–that it was a racist attack, and he was totally innocent. The view put forward was that he was victimized for being Indian, and it was a conspiracy targeting him. There were lots of youngsters, especially fashion fans who stood up and protested to support him.
But the travesty is no one knew what really happened. When I looked at the E Investigates, I was disgusted to think I believed he was innocent. I can’t shake that feeling off, especially because it was not one girl or two girls but 21 women. I think Laura showed some serious evidence, one that shocked me was the videos he made with the under-aged girls. The evidence including the file on his computer with a list of the women he conquered and the empty promises he made in chats with young girls who hoped to be models, which to me was with the malicious intent of taking advantage of them.
I sincerely hope the girls find a way to let the issue behind and move on to lead a healthy happy life, and Anand Jon faces the punishment for his despicable actions.
