Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was written in protest against the growing incidence of rape and violence against women in India, a society traditionally known to rever their women. The chauvinist opinions, solutions to ensure women security and reactions among political and civil society leads me to conclude - that women cannot be safe in a society where the perception of violence and its consequences are skewed.

This poem is therefore dedicated to all women who continue to be discriminated against, violated and denied their basic rights as human beings and equals.

    Dear Deepthy, I definitely loved your poem. One of the better poems in the entire contest. You have a real talent, which can be further nurtured to make you a potent voice. Wish you all the best. But anything can happen in an Online Contest - which can be easily manipulated by cyber savvy poets! ! (See my poem Poem Hunter Contest Final just to have an idea of how a contest can be manipulated...) (Report) Reply
