“An ode to a strong woman”

The most dexterous creation of the almighty ,
The heart and soul of the home ,
But the soul aim of her life ,
Why always , is to keep her husband happy ??

Dressed like a princess on her wedding day ,
Fancy trousseau , expensive jewellery ,
Doesn’t it seem like ,
The sacrifice of the poor lamb ??

Persistent kitchen devoir ,
Are intertwined with her life ,
Is this what her identity is ??
Our society , should indeed be abashed !!

A woman’s life ,
Its just not a rough journey ,
It is made tough ,
Always put beside her , are immense anticipations !!

Parents strive to raise ,
Strong and independent girls ,
Then why ??
Do they spend ,
Their life’s savings ,
On their daughters wedding ??

She leaves her home ,
Where she has all the memories grown ,
Her parents ,
Who need support , for they are even old ,
She changes her name ,
Why always is it only her ??

Engagements , marriage,
Pregnancies ,
Are these the only important days ,
Of a woman ‘s life ??
Why in the name of traditions
Are they always suppressed ?

Tormenting woman sexually ,
Is today , a recurrent act in our country ,
A country where goddesses are worshiped ,
The same nation ,
Are the women highly belittled !!

The neoteric Indian Hathras incident ,
That sends a shiver down our spines ,
Are all the Nirbhaya’s to soon forgotten , ???
How can the domestic violence not be addressed ,
Why is the position of women ,
Always so precarious ??

We are today engaging attention ,
On empowering the women ,
What the most overriding concern should be ,
Is to instruct the men ,
To live with the empowered women !!

Despite all the dejection and misery ,
Which is compelled into her life ,
To achieve her position in the society ,
She always strives..
Is a mother’s love bound ,
Only with her culinary skills ??

She’s Durga,
She’s Kali,
The Hindu goddess of empowerment and love ,
And the perfect idol we need today !!!

Crush patriarchy ,
Change unfair traditions ,
If not , development and equality ,
Will just be far fetched dreams !!

She is the change ,
That will change the million ,
She is the light ,
Because of which the nation shines ,
She is the laughter ,
The reason behind our smiles …
She is our strength ,
For we today stand with pride …,
She has a heart of gold ,
With love for all ,
Dear society ,
Give her wings ,
And let her fly !
So here is an ode ,
To a strong woman , with a high vision !

“ Mahatma Gandhi ”

An old and simple man ,
Dressed in white ,
With a stick in hand ,
But the resolute credence glowed deep within !!

Non violence , was the path he preached ,
Believed in simplicity, lived in austerity ,
Wrapped in a dhoti and shawl , not an elaborate attire ,
Immense contentment he still attained !!

Harmony and morality he believed in ,
Countless times , when he had been put behind the bars ,
Fought to gain his right , but violence had never been a part of his fight ,
Satygrah , he followed , for the nation he was a star !!

The swadeshi movement ,
A warning for the British to quit the country ,
To Boycott the British goods ,
He himself spun the cloth ,
Evoked the spirit of freedom in the country’s heart !!

The Dandi March ,
He set off to make salt on the seaside ,
To stop the use of British goods ,
It instilled the strength and hope in the people!!

His morals can never be forgotten ,
Gandhian values are alive in all hearts ,
Peace , integrity and humanity ,
Are still the strength of the nation !!

He wanted all religions to unite ,
Live with harmony and respect ,
And never discriminate on the basis of black and white ,
Being an Indian , to always be our first religion !!

He gave his life , not for pride ,
Not for fame ,
But the humanity that lies all within ,
Just with a single call ,
Could he declare himself as the prime minister ,
But took the right decision for the country,
He is none other than the father of our nation !!

The father who united us all ,
The father because of whom we are free to breathe ,
The father who has left behind innumerable values ,
The father of every individual,
The father of the nation !!

Wishing you all a very happy GANDHI Jayanti!!

And wishing the second prime minster Mr. Lal Bahadur Shastri a very happy birthday… an unsung hero but a true super hero !
