Poets in Disguise

Have you wondered how the world would be?

Without poems and stories, that are free,

There is a price for everything in this world,

Even the pride, even the dignified hull,

But what if, I tell you there are things more gratuitous,

That they develop without any apparatus,

These stories that I say are conveyed not in writing,

Politely they stare at the world, enlightening.

These unheard anecdotes of inexpressive stouts,

Can make you emotional, and even intrigue to shout,

These stories that are concealed in their heart,

It would take an eternity to get them to start.

They are shy and reclusive and even abandoned,

In the world of no mercy, of branded,

They stay quiet and observe your every deed,

They are listening carefully to your mysterious creed.

The legacy of these writers is often untold,

But have a journal, in their hearts, kept unfold,

The time will come when these stories will arise,

They are waiting patiently, these poets in disguise

Alleged rapist set free, if he could touch victim’s feet.

Disclaimer: I am not making it up.

The incident took place in Meerganj Tehsil, Uttar Pradesh. When the cops refused to lodge the complaint of the victim and she didn’t let go of the courage.

She brought the matter in front of the village panchayat and the Pradhan then dragged the accused in front of the police station and made him! I repeat made him, touch the feet of victim and was pardoned.  And she was also told to silence her protest as the accused touched her feet and apologized.

I don’t know about the media, whether they have covered it up by the same passion for Indrani Mukherjee’s case but this case was a mockery of Indian Judiciary System, again.

All the facts given, the Superintendent of Police has ordered the Circle Officer to look further into the matter.

It is abundantly clear how the local heights are using the Nayay Panchayat in their favour and imposing this mockery of our Justice System. This issue needs to be addressed or this will motivate the others to do these foolish things again and again.

Sexist tales. #7

“My god! Look at the brave lady standing up to her beliefs”

Said the face in the crowd surrounding the man who was getting beat up by his wife. Ignoring the reality that he accepted the beating as his beliefs to not harm any woman.
