LIBERATED!!!! ARE WE?? By: Alaknanda Bose
As the lady sweeps your dirty floor, As the one who wipes her field sweat, As the one who is beaten by her husband, As the one who is harassed for her girl child, How is the woman liberated in true sense!!! Remember the girl washing the dishes, To fulfill her brother’s dream in school, Remember the woman loading bricks on head, To feed her wailing and waiting child,… How is the woman truly liberated!!!! As the fair and lovely rules over mind, As the woman steps in another woman’s house, As she comprises her identity with the seven steps, As she waits for her equality of freedom, How is the woman liberated in true sense! Remember the Nirbhaya Delhi gang rape, The culprits yet to be hanged, And again the fate strikes on a poor girl, When time traps her in the unfortunate fate, How is she truly liberated!!! Is every woman in every corner educated???? Yet we enjoy a Happy Woman’s day!!!! Is every woman medically aware and insured, Yet the celebrations are fully assured!!!!! With a glass of wine and mind class apart, The class seems blinded from the masses!’ I believe the Heaven is not far away… But there are still miles to walk that way!!!!!!
