Nirbhaya :

Where one can dwell in safety
be it woman or man,
be it Christian or Muslim,
be it any of the others.
Nirbhaya :

in India, just another word,
to start a controversy
the fear of being exposed,
the fear of ridicule and shame.

To step out without fear
to practise my own faith
to begin when all seems
to have ended,
the second chance,
with strength.
