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

Referring to a recent instance that happened in Mumbai.


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!

    Kavya Akka, a timely write at the scary and dreaded times. @Kavya, Valsa Ma'am and Dinesh Sir: Rape is not Indian culture. Neither the tearing of body like Bheema did to Jarasandha or penectomy. Either we should blind the eyes of Humans international and execute them in the traditional way (Lethal Injection, Noose or Bullet) or we should condemn them for life. Showing examples by stepping down from humanity is not advisable, to my knowledge and belief (Report) Reply

    I completely agree with you Valsa Mam, the treatment should be nothing short of amputation of that vital 'tool'! (Report) Reply

    Appalling incidents follow one after the other..... I often wonder if it is savagery, some hormonal imbalance, blatant denial of human dignity or some acute form of paranoia! ! But its treatment is nothing short of amputation of that vital 'tool'! (Did I use unparliamentary language?) Let us, at least express our concern, rather than being dumb about this inhuman assault on women! ! Powerful write, Kavya! ! (Report) Reply

    @Dinesh Sir, thx for your views on this poem. I wish our country metes out such harsh punishments to these people who get involved in such brutality. What is more shameful is inspite of the crime being the same, the Indian law first sits n decides who is a juvenile in this case, so that the punishment is not that severe compared to others who are not. What more shame than this one, y see the age, wen the act committed is brutal! ! ! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Every man begins to feel the shame of being in that gender Kavya. The punishment for this type of brutality should be as follows
    ' Tie their two legs to two different cars and drive them in opposite directions` I have seen one such punishment being executed in a Saudi Arabian cine show.
    I think the shiver that goes down the spines has to be felt by all who think of outraging the modesty of women. (Report) Reply
