Let's stone ourselves to death
Because we couldn't stone them to;
Don't tear me apart
I am your sister, I am your mother
My sister screamed, who hears?
Let's stone ourselves to death
Because we couldn't stone them to;
Who tore my sisters in the street?
‘I wanted to, I wanted to live! '
Capital of abuse, assault, molestation
Incredible India, shame on you!
Nobody killed Jessica, Nobody raped her too.
And a baby on a trident cried for milk
The democracy gave her a name
Ghosts of Godhra.
My sister brutally gang raped
And we named her JYOTHI.
And Jyothi, my unseen sister
Let me kill myself by an iron rod
For, I am ashamed to live in the world
Where you are torn to death
Because you are a woman.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
