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.
