"SHE"- Births a new era !
The tiny fingers that curl inside and clasp her tightly in the small palm signifies an infant is nearby, a baby is born!
The arrival of a child is welcomed and the whole house sparkles in joy.
Someone from the flood of guests, asks "Is the newborn a girl or a boy?"
The proud mother announces, "She is my princess, the brave warrior".
Eyes remain wide open hearing this,as everyone gets shocked. The village which never allows a baby girl to be born and kills every female foetus before birth,becomes outraged.
Amidst the celebrations, hundreds of swords come out , ready to axe the new life.
The mother screams at the insane crowd and warns if anyone dares to touch her child.The next moment ,she picks up the bundle of warmth and her life to walk away from the ignorant ,inhumane society that exists in the corner of this world and steps out of the imaginary limits to face the world and create a new realm for her child.
She empowers her thoughts to fight the age old false egoistic traditions and fights for the equality of girls.
"She fights her battle like a valiant warrior
sporting a new robe of courage .
guarding off herself with a rapier glazed
slashes the nonsense and babble
shedding the dead old skin .
yet unlike the rest, she dares forth
in her combat with the vagaries
of social metaphor.
Her weapon is the most powerful,
,the five and half inch pen
killing millions with a single severe blow
reviving hundreds from the dead chores…
A new hope rises from the ashes of oblivion
A neoteric incarnation of a woman
in the dominion of chauvinists…
spoke she with humility
pulling the truth that laid beneath the mattress
she shakes the conscience of the slumber,
to lift the losing values of human coherence…
Births a new age,
When a woman is
armed with intelligence
fortified by mental strength
ready to shoulder the task
in a nations’ progress."
Unlike the woman discussed above, there are millions of woman who till date, remain silent to the inhumanely injustice done to them and their girl child. The courage to stand and face is somewhere lacking or hidden,what is required is the faith they should have in themselves.
The power of changing a situation , the power of igniting spark, the power of patience and perseverance should be used in standing up for self against all odds to protect the girl of tomorrow.
A small leap then will create a giant step for this mankind.
