Your body is gone, it went away
So still & calm on that day
You looked so lovely with that warm smile
Too sad, you could'nt stay with me awhile

I remember the good, I remember the bad
But all the way through, its you I always had
Through thick & thin, wear & tear
But now you 'll be with me only in prayer

It came too soon, It came too fast
How much time is in the future, & gone is the past
It seems you are gone forever, gone for good
But you'll always love me, you promised you would

So even though I cry, even though I sob
I know in the bottom of my heart
You'll always continue your job
To take care of me, the way no one else can 
From the moment it perished, from the moment it began

" I'll be there ", you whispered
I was too young to understand
Only now do I realize, when I hold your cold hand
That you were going to a foreign land

To love, To hold me, keep me from danger
Your only fear was, I would be a loveless stranger
But it could'nt be farther from the truth right now
For that to happen to you, I could'nt allow

We'll be together again, that's for sure
For my heart, that's the only known cure
All I can do now is cherish the time
When you & I were the perfect rhyme

That's the only reason why I can get through it
Because even for death, we would never split
So even though I wish you were with me
Its time to let you go, mommy,
& set you free...

( In The Memory Of The Delhi Gang Rape Victim )

Every girl has some dreams about how a prince charming will come into her life & whisk her away on a white horse ( in present times, maybe in a BMW ? ) to the beautiful sunset & the will have their happily ever-after. 

But not all girls can dream that because my friends, in India, a place known for its rich heritage & cultural beliefs, a girl only has worries & tensions about her well being, not the usual fantasies. Where some girls are dreaming about their future aspirations, there are also girls who are trying to stay safe for just another day. Because in India, where great personalities like M.K Gandhi, Dayanand Saraswati & Rajiv Gandhi took birth, there are also men who abuse & rape the so called "Lakshmi" just for the fun of it.

Today, these heinous men have tainted our culture, our society & our country, which was earlier known for its morals & social etiquettes. My friends, the time has come when the bud is afraid to bloom, the caterpillar is afraid to become a butterfly, just because of these monsters who reside in the body of men who have nothing better to do than to molest the defenceless.

Shame on those men, but what about those who let those intolerable crime happen & let it go for a few green notes? Yes, what about the Govt.  ? What about the police,  "the public servants" ?  Moreover, what about our "moral society" where every person is only worried about the marriage of the girl rather than the physical & mental well being of the victim. No, the 1st question that pops in our mind is - who will marry this defiled girl?

This is the ugly truth of our very own "modern" India. On one hand, we try to act cool & follow the western countries but in the heart of our heart, we are the orthodox Indians who will always consider it taboo if a girl wears a mini skirt or shorts. Our mind is only restricted to this. 

We'll always blame the victim, we'll say - she was asking for it { why, because she wore a mini skirt ? } & at the end, when all is said & done, we'll also say- we are the modern & educated people of India. But are we really ?
