Its been one year since the tragic event of the girl who was allegedly assaulted in a moving bus and was succumbed to death. Such an accident in the national capital of INDIA shook the whole nation and since then women had to secure themselves from the world outside. Through out the year we have seen no change towards the security of women.
Some people say we need to have stringent laws against sexual harassment.
Some people say its all about self defense. Women should not stand weak in society. They should be strong enough to handle situations.
The point is, no one wants to talk about such aspects in society. We must always remember that awareness is the first step. People should start TALKING about sexual harassment so that, the problems will be projected and solutions start rolling out.
I presented this poem in my Facebook profile an year ago and now i would like to post it here on my blog remembering that innocent girl, Nirbhaya, who left this world after struggling with the trauma of sexual harassment.
naari hai yeh duniya saari
parvah kar ise apni jaan se pyaari
na kar koi kaam
jisse ho sharmindagi puri duniya ko
kar naari ka aadar
jisse tuhje ho garv khud par
na ban mat tu ek kaayar
naari pe apna haath utha ke
kar koi kaam mard ka
raksha kar uski zimmedari le kar
khud padh likh kar tu kya kiya
jab na kiya ye naari ka izzat
are kam se kam ek bacchi ko padha
layegi yeh tere desh ko rang
mauj kar tu masti kar tu
par jeene de naari ko apne saath
de zara ek maa ko mauka
goodh me lene de usse
ek pyaari si bachhi ko zara
byaah na kar jaldi ek naari ki
ehsaas kara usko javaani ki
haq banta hai uska bhi
tarike se saje zindagi uski
kare yeh naari ek kaam
hai yeh mard se namunkin
janm deti hai yeh hum jaise mardon ko
maanta hoon mai ise bhagwan ke samaan
bhai jaan samajh ye baat
naari hai ye duniya saari
parvah kar ise apne jaan se pyaari
