We live in a society,
which happens to be denser with brutality and sparse in humanity.
We live amongst the mass,
which proudly flaunts crass and orient on being class.
We live abiding by the fact that the concept of working married women is abstract,
and the thought of girl education is hacked.
We live in such a contrast where employment is based on caste,
and merit is nowhere asked.
We live happily in a nation,
where corruption is a means of faster administration and ‘note-bandi’ a milestone in detoxification.
We live with such a huge population,
simply gazing at the advancement of life with alienation,
left in awe of the setup of civilization.
If this hasn’t surprised you yet,
we also live in such profound deception
where the western culture is marked as fusion,
sexual harassment mocked being a mere addiction,
men with the power of money clench no allegation,
there is no extremity for superstition,
a girl child born is still abandoned,
children are made to marry before puberty has awakened,
dowry is quoted with more affection,
‘vote bank’ politics still a better solution and the concept of better India: our only anticipation
