Happy women’s day I scream
They wish me back
Applaud ,likes, shares..
Nods to when I say I am strong
Next day forget who I am…
Thinks I am yet another crazy woman
Who shouts for equality
I don’t want a day to prove who I am
I don’t want to beg for equality
Why should I?
When I know I am…
This place is mine so as it is yours
I don’t want to shout that
I am proud to be a woman
After all being proud is negative
Blessed to be a woman
I would rather say…
They ask me to change
They my kind
Say adjustment is key to happy life
Sacrifice identity of love
Giving up your identity opens the door to better life
Being part of him
his life makes you a better wife,better person..
Gives you a better life they say..
So its time you change yourself
To suit to the laws of nature they say
And I rebel
Screw the laws
Does this key lie with just the women?
I don’t desire a better life
giving up who I am…
I am a woman and you a man
You don’t scream for equality
And neither do I
Its my right
I don’t want to beg or scream
for what is mine..
Tomorrow is the first day of a brand new year. Tomorrow you get to become anyone in the world that you wish. Who are you? You can choose to by anyone, alive today or someone gone long ago. If you decide to stay “you” share your rationale.
I don’t want to be anyone else but be me.It’s not that I am perfect,I love how imperfect I am..But If there is a chance I could change to someone else..then I wish I were a boy. It’s not that I hate being a girl,in fact I am proud to be a girl. Also I don’t mean that living the life of a man is easy. However limitations in terms of freedom makes me want so. I don’t say that I live in a society where all girls are locked into a cage. We are given “freedom” but with a never ending list of “terms and conditions”. How unfair is that? When your fellow-being is granted all the enjoyments of freedom you are given rules and restrictions.
I come from a family where girl child is given equal importance . They give me “freedom” but yes with the “restrictions” out of fear of the society…They don’t encourage me to travel alone .Why? They constantly fear about my safety . It isn’t a rule but just their fear. It doesn’t mean that I don’t travel alone..I do..but I would get several phone calls from ‘Amma’ to make sure that I am safe. The case is not same with my brother ,she calls him only if he is getting unusually late or something like that.. But being a girl a minimum of 3-4 phone calls for me is a must..I don’t blame her ,she’s just concerned..but it just makes me think.
Last day I really wanted to go to the beach fest but none of my friends(girls) were permitted to go. And I can’t go alone at that time of the night..”You know its unsafe for girls” as said my neighbor with an inner meaning that “Girls are supposed to stay at home”.They think that I am crazy when I said that I want to travel the world and not sit in an office glued to the computer screen..I know many think that I have lost it ..but that’s just my wish.Or may be the world could change a bit for me or I should gather up courage to rebel . …..
