Reena’s Exploration Challenge – 77

Woman – Her Journey

the journey of the women

could have been

a lot easy

if

nurtured, cared, loved

with

understanding, companionship, compassion, respect, and unity

by their own gender

because

if you are not fair to the people of your own gender

how will you expect

understanding, equality, and respect

fair treatment from others

who don’t treat

even people

of their own gender

fairly

and discriminate by

poor, weak, color, sex, caste and creed

so women

you have to become strong and unite

as the strength lies in unity

`Indira

नारी ने कहा
हे नर!

मैं तो हमेशा से वहीँ हूँ 

जहाँ मुझे होना था 

न तुम्हारे आगे न पीछे 
न ऊपर न नीचे 
बस बराबरी में
मुझे तो कभी भी महान बनने की चाहत न थी 
तुम ही हमेशा  ऊंचा बनने की होड़ में लगे रहे 
महान बनने के रास्ते तो और भी थे
उन पर चल तुम ईश्वर बन सकते थे 
पर तुमने यह क्या किया   
मुझे नीचा  दिखाने की कोशिश में 
खुद से कमजोर जताने  की ख्वाहिश में 
खुद को महान  दिखाने की चाहत में 
मुझे मेरे अधिकारों से वंचित किया 
मुझ पर बलात्कार और जुर्म कर 
खुद को ही नीचा गिरा कर 
मुझ स्वतः ही  उपर उठा दिया 

Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 43- Honour Killing

Posted on

Honour Killing

Women carry tradition more fiercely than men,

They cling to it like anything, to please men or their clan, whatever.

Make it a purpose of their life to carry it over the generation to generation.

Well, it’s my opinion. Though things are changing, some villages still carry on with old traditions, at any cost.

After her husband died, she had raised her son with so much difficulty and he paid for her love like this, by marrying a girl from other religion?

Had her son told her beforehand that he was going to marry a girl from other religion, she could have been able to deter him, knowing how strict their clan was. There already were some cases of honor killing.

But, no, he had to come with her after marrying her in some other place.

After her husband died, she had raised him with so much difficulty and he paid for her love like this.

Calmly she had welcomed him, decorated his room, two glasses with milk and that was that. 

She herself dug their grave and buried them.

Now her son can’t leave her, lying calmly in her backyard. No one asked her anything. No police case or inquiry.

The whole village knew but they kept mum.

Wasn’t it for the honour of their society. 

Was it jealousy or love for tradition?  

Marrying a girl from their own religion had been a different thing. 

Then she could have a hold on her DIL, she was afraid of the girl from another religion, she may try to snatch her son with her love.

Aquira- Ladki hoon mein

Posted on

Aquira- This is not my story – this is a story of every other woman who has faced sexist oppression but their courage and determination remained undeterred and unshakable. I salute those women and for the rest this is a calling of the revolution that has already started!

 

Friends please watch this video, its awesome and please like it on youtube.

Here are the lyrics of the song, written by Shaoni Maitra.

 

Aage kya hain nishana,

pichechodazamana,

Badh kea age dekhana,

Har mat janana,

Ladki hoon main toh kya hain?

HainekParda, hata de; Hainekdarsa, kuchalde,

Is se tu sharmana na , aage mat ruk jana na

 

Tumne socha ladki hoon main ghabraoongi,

patriarchal monarchy main kho jaoongi,

Quintessential “Abla nari” reh jaoongi,

aspirations paron tale kuchlaoongi,

This is where my hon you got it all wrong,

so here I am wearing pants, doing the jiggy male dance,

Walking the talk, talking the walk,

doing the jiggy male dance,

 

So whatcha looking at (come join in);

Hey you gyani, (stop smirking)

We know selling(and cooking),

we know finance( and romance)

Idhar Udhar Gaye mila na koi sheh,

kyoinsahusadiyoin ka yeh kathputliyon ka khel,

Andheri Tufanoin ke Teevra Diyan hoon main,

Gumnam na hone dungi tere ichha ke diya ko main,

 

It’s no more hazy ,

so I am ready ,

No one’s gonna stop me now Poripurno korbo shopno,

etai amar motto now; Tai rock e boshe adda mar aar jotoi pnpc kor Mulgi haath se geli keval,

Yash tiche marg jaane ; Jhagar ke, Nagar se, (Dekho iski Udaan – silence)

 

I know it’s not easy,

coz its easier said than done;

I am some stranger with a mic going all out on this fight But this ain’t fake,

for heaven sake; Next to the window you sit and repent kuch kash main kiya hota re….

So chalo chalo aage chalo, bado bado aage bado;

Neka neka nahin kehna re

 

Aage kya hain nishana,

piche choda zamana,Badh kea age dekhana,

Har mat janana, Ladki hoon main toh kya hain?

Hain ek Parda, hata de; Hain ek darsa, kuchalde,

Is se tu sharmana na , aage mat ruk jana na

 

Kari Rahiyo nathi dhoklas but also mota mota rokras Kanjivaram Cheeralu inka pillaley kadu Vyaparm meeda-kuda manastatvam paratha na sirafa,

but ihavi resspectable afsara So encourage her, don’t you discourage her; C’mon just believe her,

give her that helping hand chalo chalo aage chalo, bado bado aage bado;

Neka neka nahin kehna re Dhakka dhakka piche dhakka , phir bhi li hain aage Kadam…teri meri aage jeet hain re

 

Aage kya hain nishana,

piche choda zamana,Badh kea age dekhana,

Har mat janana, Ldki hoon main toh kya hain?

Hain ek Parda, hata de; Hain ek darsa, kuchalde,

Is se tu sharmana na , aage mat ruk jana na

 

 

 

PRAISE

Posted on

When praising someone

never be thrifty with words

because

children cry for it

men die for it

and women?

never ever try to

deprive them of it.
