Some Indian men are no less wild than corona virus. She may survive from the virus, but there is no escape from schlemiel husbands.)
Domestic violence in India is prevalent. The abdominal crime is committed in impunity. Women faces physical, physiological and verbal abuse and it is an ugly truth behind the curtain of so-called Indian civility.
It is distressing tale of almost every woman but they feel reluctant to divulge it before the world. Voicing is still a taboo in our society. Due to family pressure, lack of community support they stay under the duress of abusive husbands. Our social ethics are so designed inculcating a believe system that, a husband’s violent behavior is justified. Even beating to wife is deemed as an acceptable subject. Besides that, Indian women are seasoned to be shy and comply. So, they even don’t realize and admit that, they are getting abused. Helpless and hopeless they stuck in their situations.
I am really happy, finally women are coming out of their cocoon, braving to take stand against the egregious crime and reporting their ordeals in the police stations. Shedding eons old fear is surely a catch up.
I owe all the women who bold to break times old societal frail to claim their conjugal rights, and desired to embrace their happiness over just being stoic.
Her stoic eyes
Staring through the window
Quietly consoling her heavy heart
Because she knows, her cry will fall on deaf rears
As she is surrounded by some inequitable creatures
Domestic violence is a free affair in my land
Every one senses, the thrust behind the closed doors
But no one comes forward, to defend her
She is borne to rule by,
By the cold command of the brutish men
The hanging tear drop on her lash
Very evidence of her pain
He pretends to be witty blind
The adamant masculine demons
May be wickedness is in your genome
What you think?
Doesn’t she understand the motive behind your deceptive smile?
Yet she bears
The sick patriarchy
Cos, she loves her child
But, that’s enough men
Calm your splenetic
Purge your insanity
How you will play
If my icy cold treat will pitch high
And, enough women
Assert your power
Stop victimizing your soul
Adore your self-respect
Because you are more than just being a wife
Wipe out the self-blame, confusions guilt and shame. Speak it out. You have all rights to smile an uninhibited smile.
