O' Woman





Whom do I go to, whom should I ask

For earning my equality

And saving my dignity

Is such a daunting task



I told her soon 'My Dear'

What is that you fear ?

There's nothing to cry and beg

Even if that they always try to take



The dignity and equality you search

To find it you don't need no torch

These gifts you were born with

When you began to breathe



Know this O Woman, O bearer of life

Alike in peace & moments of strife

Never for a moment go to ask

And set yourself on a daunting task



When what you search is not elsewhere to be found

It courses in your veins & your voice's sound

Know your worth under brutal wrath

On rosy gardens and thorny path


Like the light of the sun

Like the white of moon

Like the flow of a brook

Like seeds of a fruit



You were created with pride

Never to confine at someone's side

But go and seize what you wish

Pay no heed to any man made leash

    These lines say it all, Anupam. They proudly place her at the centre of our present, social, cultural scene. Brilliant! Thanks for this..

    1. Thanks Sushma for reading my poem and promoting it.

      Unfortunately, I have neither edited the poem nor redrafted it.. I just wrote it spontaneously out of sheer anger after the Guwahati incident and after hearing and reading certain responses thereto.

      Sorry if any inadvertent mistakes have crept in

      I'm glad that you too are writing on this issue. Would surely love to read it.

  14. Awesome words... When will we realise that it's a woman who brings them in this world!!!!!!!!

  15. I have the feeling about women who go extra miles just to show that they are equal to men.....that you don't need to show anyone that you are equal ...because you are BORN EQUAL:)
