A Hope for Bravery of all the Nirbhayas’

She fought valiantly,
The aggressors on her modesty.
The only mistake she made ,
Was to travel with unknown people.
Her so called fault was to be out at night,
In a country where all walk shoulder to shoulder.

She took her freedom for granted,

It did not please the lusty perverts.
They attacked her with all vehemence,
Tearing off the shreds of her innocence,
And her faith in humanity and humans.
They robbed her off her modesty,
But they failed to kill her spirits.
She fought and fought to stay alive,
To see her offenders get punished by law.
She had to die against her wishes,
But her will to live has left us in awe.
Though she is no more but she did a favour,
She united her countrymen against all odds.
We now wait to see the justice done,
We protest and brave all odds.
Let’s hope we do not fail her ,
In the cause we fight for her today.
Let’s hope the rapists will get eradicated
And the judgement leaves a trail of fear ,
In the perverts who want their way.

    An outpouring of emotion on something that needs deep introspection within each one of us . Why does such perversion occur ? It cannot be ended by “ eliminating rapists “ but only by fighting and defeating the rape mindset , which begins with entrenched patriarchy , false concepts of machismo and daily inequality that is practised in society .
