Tribhawan Kaul

Rookie - 501 Points (01-01-1946 / Srinagar (J & K) India)

Nirbhya (English Version)


She lit a torch
While getting consigned to flames
Awakening dawns on
Numb consciences
Shockwaves shaked the mindset
Ensuring brainstorming sessions
Leaving us contemplating
And with a debt load
Gone for ever
How to repay her for such an awakening?
A million dollar question
She left millions brooding.

    Very beautiful write. Even I agree with your words Pen is mightier than sword. Words can do many things.....
    Sword can cut, which words also can but it can also join those... (Report) Reply

    Thanks for visiting my page and I highly appreciate your comment and sentiments. You are right when you say rubber swords only will not work. and I think people of India were galvanized to take to streets forcing the Govt. to enact stringent laws once lot of criticism and backlash appeared in print and media. There is an old saying that ' kalam kee takat talwaar se bhi bad kar hoti hai. Looking forward to read your poems too. Happy writing.

    Why Nirbhaya? Lets name her! She becomes the real flesh and blood when she is called Jyoti! Jyoti Singh Pandey! A good poem sir, but unfortunately, and with due respects, we need more than rubber swords! (Report) Reply
