Man Power? ? ?
Yet another dreadful day for a woman
Yet another horrifying encounter with a hooligan
The cries of Nirbhaya are still not drowned
And there's yet another instance rising from the ground
A young woman all of 22
Being targeted by a group of 5
To derive fun from the innocent gal
Threatening her if she raised an alarm
Their job is done, they did this only for fun!
Shame on such men for their cruel deeds
Who satisty their desire and in turn have no guilt
Is this what is called being a Man
Is this what is called possessing Power
Why are nowadays such instances on the rise
Why being a woman one has to pay such a heavy price
Its high time our laws change for woman's benefit
So that such crimes one dare not commit
Only then can there be woman empowerment
And our country can head towards betterment!

Poet's Notes about The Poem
No longer are the fairer sex the weaker section of society, as inspite of all these odds, they go strong and stand tall and fight for justice. Men who do such acts are in fact weak mentally who conquer their rights with their physical strength!
