Guest post by Varsha Kalyani, student of MA English Literature who aspires to bring change in society through her words and hopes to succeed one day & witness the change:
The news chilled me to the bones
For it could have been any of the girls
You, Me, Our Sister, Our friend…
If such cases will continue to transpire,
In fear of ‘HER’ Life,
Folks will stop sending their gals out
Quivering & Shivering of torments!
Why dont they understand?
The mental trauma a GIRL undergoes.
Physical injuries a doctor can heal
But what about the mental agonies?
Who’s gonna heal them?
A doctor, A Minister or A police officer!?
Even after saving ‘HER’ life,
Lending her breathe,
You think ‘SHE’ would survive through
that mortification of a molestation!?
Would punishing the culprits
make her lead a normal life?
Why don’t they understand
Someday their own daughters
might be ravished?
Why such barbarous beastly brutal act?
These ministers who move
With security & guards
can never perceive their own daughter
In victims place for they are not commoner!
Such pathetic cases
Would bring the doomsday soon
& its must come,
for ‘SHE’ would be safer
with the Demons & Satans of Hell
than the Devils & Belials of this Infernal Land !
PS: The post came out as my reaction to the news! vexing & annoying state of affairs.
