Women are not safe from the prowling men…

Incidents aplenty of her molestation are reported daily

We listen and watch the graphic details

Many a debate, schemes have been deliberated

Concerts, rallies, street plays campaigns organized

Every mother, mother-in-law, sister, sister-in-law,

Daughter, daughter-in-law have been invoked to

Put sense in the males around them…however

Little seems to have changed!

The crime flourishes because of the despicable,

 Horrific carnal urge of man…disgusting! hideous

 raucous laughter, sneering smile, sadistic pleasure

 to see the helplessness, hopelessness, fear, hate,

 agony in the fair eyes begging for freedom.

Wriggling, gasping like a fish ensnared, a lamb at the alter…

That man is strong, he flexes his muscles in glee to overpower and crush!

Yes he has made another kill

Finished a woman, changed her life forever!

The happy, merry, impish, full of fun n frolic damsel is no more.

In life or death… a stigmatized life ahead!

She and her family drowned in a quagmire of shameful rhetorical questions

The how when what why where who what of rape!

Little seems to have changed!...however

It is the last sequential date of the century!
There seemed to be something sacrosanct in the air. There was so much hype about the date at my work place that it caught on. Some checked and updated their status on the social site on their smart phones and read out some weird quips. A colleague was reading aloud the contents from the htcity the National daily. …Astrologer and numerologist P Khurana says the day is auspicious in terms of planetary positions. It is a rare combination of the Sun, Moon Venus, Mars and Jupiter in strong positions. Also, 11+12+13=9, a powerful number signifying Mars(Mangal) which makes it influential. Amidst all this revelry a guy made a limping entry. He had just about managed to escape coming under a bus! Aghast we sympathized, he suddenly grinned and said perhaps it was 11.12.13. the extra special date of the century that he was saved to remember.

Delhites are all for fun! From weddings to having babies, to voluminous discounts on eatables for partying, to be there on the icing on the cake! 11.12.13 a maverick day sort of!

Go out there and live it!
