WE - the indian girls
we want support
we want equality
we want opportunity.
65 years of independence.
but for half humanity-
men folk only.
we girls are still oppresed.
we still feel inferior.
we continue to live, but in fear.
India's patriarchal society,
man is the ruler.
woman is treated like worker.
we are made to feel low,
we are underestimated,
we are hated.
we have been prohibited.
to grow & go forward
our world has been limited.
we are called 'parayi'
since our birth.
this scenario breaks my heart.
