    HE/SHE/THEY are MOTHERS!

    "I was a bud until she decided to fall down from the brownest branch!
    Reviving through her journey all night made my petals of shoulders open and I stretched my identity towards being a flower.
    I was a feeble plant until she hold my roots being the soil.
    Beautifying her fierce grace she was the storm who broke the gigantic tree into pieces but I stood quiet learning my survival."
    Mother(Maa) the sweetest, kindest and the deepest word in the eternity of this metaphorical universe.
    Those dreamy eyes captures the dream of the child at once and throws away the unfinished reel from the oldest camera as dark circles guards the eyes forever in a fort of responsibilities. For a woman this is a feeling that comes even before the world welcomes the child, a journey that starts from womb and never ends. This feeling comes with ultimate duties, responsibilities, unconditional love, protection, sacrifices and a huge strength. It's truly said that, God can't be everywhere so they created mothers.
    Whenever a child falls down it screams as 'Maa', when an infant gets hungry the sparkling tiny eyes searches for the mother. When a toddler goes to the school for the first time, he/she wants mother to be on their side.
    But, Is it necessary that the woman who kept the foetus in her womb for straight 9 months resisting numerous pain and problems can only be a mother? Is it mandatory that only in the most precious moment when she holds her baby for the first time she becomes a mother?
    Deep inside every heart will answer a 'No'.
    MOTHER IS AN EMOTION NOT A GENDER.
    Every heart which feels for a child, every body which works for a child, every eye which sheds tears for a child is a Mother. Shifting a vision slightly from the dystopian surrounding towards the utopian, I see a SINGLE FATHER trying his best to fulfill the void of a mother. That sense of helplessness catering his eyes, when his empty heart becomes numb and his lips remains unuttered but still he tries his best to sing a lullaby carrying the child on his lap so that the child never feels the absence of the mother. Taking the place of a mother is the toughest, but the tireless attempt finally makes him a mother in a true sense. In a parallel scenario, witnessing a SINGLE UNMARRIED MOTHER dealing with the countless taboos of the society, the largest discriminations, the numerous words of aspersion. Without any support or recognition of the father, she finally becomes a rebel for the sake of her child. She forgets every bit of pain while staring at the holy gigglings. Hence, everyday struggle becomes her routine as she just wants her child to get the best life possible.
    And what for those who can't give birth being a mother or can't even get the status of a father? Can't they be a great mother? Can't they have that pinch of happiness, that portion of satisfaction of having a child?
    A TRANSGENDER can also be a great mom and can raise a child with utmost care and love and can give a beautiful life! Maybe the almighty made them a bit different in terms of organs but they have that same emotional heart which makes them a mother. Worrying about the upbringing of the child rather than worrying of the gender of the human matters way more.
    A mother can be anyone of any age. Being a mother is that job in which one never wants to remain absent for the upcoming challenges.
    I have seen how a TEENAGER GIRL took that wounded stray puppy with her at her home and cured it, cared for it and she was the one who used to talk with the puppy, pamper it, feed it and play with it. Her emotional connect with the puppy was visible as a string of a motherly trait.
    "What if there was never a bud and directly a flower abruptly?" A baseless questions it seems to be, but not in real.
    "The INNOCENT GIRL of 7 years had to become a mother of her 2 yr old sister, when their mother was diagnosed with last stage cancer.
    Finance backlashed at once and the father had no option left behind.
    Seeing the mother lying on bed everyday knowing that her death is approaching!
    7 year old Riku learnt to feed her 2 year old sister Juhi, learnt to dressup her own, learnt to wash their clothes and even learnt to sing a lullaby for her sister."
    Maybe, the pathetic circumstances left no choice for Riku and her budding childhood faded in the process of being a mother to her tiny sister.
    Simultaneously Circumstances and Choices makes one a mother. Hence, MOTHER IS AN EMOTION NOT A GENDER so HE/SHE/THEY are MOTHERS!!!!!

    A LETTER TO MY PARENTS,

    Wrinkles on your faces told me a different story as i grew up,
    A surge of breaking the stereotypes by setting me free and letting me question everything,
    "To decide what's is right or wrong",but to reach to a conclusion i jumped into another battle within self to unlearn everything, taught by the society at its pivotal,

    Meanwhile, the division of work got converted into superiority of one gender over other despite being aware of the fact,both balance a chariot of Home with equal strength. Tho,ways are different,

    But you both shouldn't be worried when your son wouldn't be home, your daughter will take care of you two with immense love,care and humbleness.
    Because i can be a breadwinner too besides everything,"I'm not a prisoner of gender discrimination at least at my home from where a change begins"...

    {Lessons from SES-LNC AVR Rooms}

    #SaintEdwardSchool

    #SES
    #LNC


    • First, there are two types of human SEX:

    Male (boy, man, old man), &
    Female (girl, woman, old woman)

    Next,

    • SEXUALITY
    --> This is to whom a person is attracted to. Simply, having sexual / romantic feelings to a person.

    1.1 Heterosexual: A human person is attracted to the opposite sex. i.e. A male is attracted to a female. A female is attracted to a male.

    1.2 Homosexual: A human person is attracted to the same sex. i.e. A male is attracted to a male. A female is attracted to a female.

    1.3 Bisexual: A human person is attracted to both sex. i.e. A male is attracted / likely to be attracted / can be attracted to both male and female. Vice-versa.

    1.4 Pansexual: A human person is attracted to both sex, to a person with any sexuality, and/or to a person with any gender, especially of any age. i.e. A female/male attracted to a hetero/homo/bi/pan/a - sexual or to any gender.

    Lastly,

    1.5 Asexual: A human person considers him/herself as attracted to no one and to no sex or gender. i.e. A female/male not attracted to anyone.

    • ReCap:

    SEX: Male & Female

    SEXUALITY: Sexual / Romantic Attraction to someone. (When you feel you deeply wanna have sex with someone, mostly in a healthy way. Or there really is just a heavy pounding for a long time in your heart, for someone special.)

    1. Hetero: Opposite Sex
    2. Homo: Same Sex
    3. Bi: Both Sex
    4. Pansexual: All
    5. Asexual: Nothing

    Let's say... I'm open to these kind of talks and I understand and accept a lot of ideologies. I really do and I really am. Anyway, what am I from these five above?

    I can feel sexual / romantic attraction with anyone, honestly. Anyone HOLY ������. Basically, I'm a pansexual.

    While we are modernizing, there are still some parts in the world who have rule books of their own.
    While women empowerment is normalising
    Above women it should be human empowerment!
    It should be gender equality.
    Jobs should never be related to gender.
    Also cooking is a skill or basic need that everyone should know��
    It's simple, mind your own business.
    ��✨❤️

    So I'm a man and a happy chef,
    At kitchen no 21,
    Serving delicious to my home,
    Normalising the norms.

    4 line poem though��

    kitchen no. 21

    Hello people!!!
    At kitchen no. 21,
    I'm the chef,
    Chef to my home.
    Unlike your expectations,
    Of mom granny and ladies
    Are the one who Cook
    In the kitchen at home,
    I'm a man,
    And a chef to my home.

    While I would come home tired,
    The smell of the spices,
    And tears from onion,
    The green veggies,
    The packed pulses ,
    The spicy recipes,
    The sweet cravings,
    All would welcome me with joy.

    Frying the ideas,
    And mixing it on the pan.
    Serving you delicious,
    Is the only promise that I can.
    They told me,
    "We are man, we don't cook
    It's the job, to women it suits."
    And I proudly said,
    70% of the chef's are males.

    The rejuvenating recipe,
    I prepare with all the pride.
    After the days maa left us,
    Her recipes were all kept safe
    Safe in the closet for years,
    But now,
    I have mastered them all.
    The stories of kitchen 21,
    Are never enough.

    My dad
    Normalising the
    not normal norms.
    And society would criticise me,
    While they still bing eat
    The exotic dish that I served.
    But my dad would say
    "If you are happy,
    Doing what you love,
    If there is anything
    that makes you happy,
    just make it happen,
    Unless it harms none"

    So I'm a man,
    And happy chef,
    At kitchen no 21,
    Serving delicious
    To my home,
    Normalising the norms.

    I don't know why these Indian marriages favour patriarchy over mutual respect. Is hierarchy a necessary thing in a family? Why can't parents consider their children as equal individuals with a thoughtful tongue and dignity? I find it hard to accept family as some place where someone tries to dominante and control others. Do you really think it as a necessity to have a male or female figure in a family to design and assign specific roles to its members. I don't know how you are gonna feel when you read this... but it's ok and I respect your `patriarchal normal standards´.Patriarchy works by constructing normalcies and irrespective of the gender he or she is a victim of it.

    Dear lady, you aren’t a whore,
    But the proud of your parents.
    Dear lady, wear clothes of your choice,
    Well you’re grown up, one mentality isn’t.

    Dear lady, periods aren’t your weakness,
    As fortune always favors the brave.
    Dear lady, if you’re out with a guy,
    Doesn’t makes you characterless,
    Draupadi & lord Krishna, are too friends.

    Dear lady, 25 isn’t an ideal martial age,
    As life doesn’t gave a second chance to none,
    Dear lady, you aren’t a burden or liability,
    But a pretty gift of responsibility.

    Dear lady, don’t be kind & nice to everyone,
    If its dawn, doesn’t mean you to seek home.
    Dear lady, you’re efficient of traveling alone,
    Moving alone doesn’t make you an open vault.

    Dear lady, you’ll be criticized for your body too,
    But your body makes you unique & beautiful too.
    Dear lady, it’s ok if your bra strap is visible,
    It’s not a state secret, but a fine piece of clothing.

    Dear lady, be aware of that unwanted touch,
    B/c an evil eye is staring & stalking you too.
    Dear lady, you are an angelic pure soul,
    Keep working hard, as time waits for none.

    Please Don't Quit!

    The day will come, sooner or later.

    It will happen one day,
    That we'll choose to look beyond
    The religion, the cast, 
    The nationality, the gender
    The race, and everything else.
    You'll see.

    It will happen one day, Dear Humanity,
    That we will stop failing you,
    That we will choose you,
    Above everything else.
    You'll see. 

    Till that time, 
    Please don't quit on us.

    Men slog and toil and die silent deaths.

    Women stand up and dare to live loud dreams.

    But you know what?

    Dreamicide

    As dreams sway
    With the winds
    And the leaves.
    Colours depart
    Unceremoniously
    Through petty sieves.

    Hopes beyond
    Window panes,
    Are stuck in
    Narrow lanes.
    Some at edges
    Of brain.
    Others at social
    Restraints.

    Staring eyes,
    Complaining cries.
    The rain that
    Falls here is meant
    In a stinky drain
    Of prejudice.

    The broth in the
    Cooker is
    Purposefully spoilt.
    Light outside
    The room is meant
    Only to the flies.

    A bird that
    Learnt to fly is
    Just a good hunt
    For over a night.
    The one that sang
    Looks beautiful
    Only in a cage,
    Saree is a disguise.

    Dreams are rare
    Ceramics for
    Visitors' display.
    Teen Girls in
    Colors are reserved
    For slave trades.

    Either you die
    As a wife or
    Live long enough
    To be aborted.
    Between two
    The girl that lives
    Here is a curse.
    If she's manly enough
    To dream,
    It can get worse.

    பெண்ணே உன் வரவால்
    பூஞ்சோலை பூத்துக் குலுங்கும்

    மதி கூட உன்னை காண
    முகம் மலரும் நிதமும்
     
    என பலவித கற்பனைகள்
    எனை கவர புனைகிறாய்
     
     என் காதலை பெற
    எளிதாய் வழி காட்டுகிறேன்
     
    தேனொழுக கவிதை வேண்டாம்
    தேள் கொட்டும் சொற்கள் தவிர்ப்பாயா
     
    துவண்டு விழும் பொழுது
    தூணாய் தாங்குவாயா
     
    சவால்கள் நான் எதிர்கொள்வேன்
    சளைக்காமல் கரம் பற்றி இருப்பாயா
     
    எனக்காய் தியாகங்கள் செய்ய வேண்டாம்
    என் தியாகங்களை உணர்வாயா
     
    கனவுகள் பலவுண்டு எனக்கு
    கட்டிப் போடாமல் கூட நிற்பாயா
     
    உலகனைத்தும் வேடம் மாற்றினாலும்
    உண்மையாய் என்றும் இருப்பாயா
     
    தலையில் தூக்கி வைத்து கொள்ள வேண்டாம்
    தடை செய்யாமல் ஊக்குவிப்பாயா
     
    சுதந்திரம் நீ அளிப்பதல்ல - என்
    சுய உரிமை என உணர்வாயா
     
    வானளாவ புகழ வேண்டாம் - என்
    வானத்தின் எல்லைகளை தகர்ப்பாயா
     
    உனது விடைகள் எனக்கு வேண்டாம்
    உனது கண்களில் உண்மை தெரிந்தால்
    உன்னுடையவள் என்றென்றும் நான்
    உயிருள்ள வரை என்னுடன் வருவாயா

    We women are capable of doing so many things.
    Yet we are suppressed.
    When we voice our opinion, we are sushed down.
    We are called ill-mannered, reckless and what not.
    We talk about equality but equity is lost.

    Why is the price we pay for being opinionated so high?
    Who are we living for?
    We belong to ourselves and no one else.
    We have our own individuality.
    We have our own dreams and abilities.

    Cooking, cleaning, household chores aren't gender based.
    Its something every gender has to learn and perform.
    Women are not the only one supposed to take care of the house, children and what not.
    It's a shame that this mentality exists and that people are ignorant when it comes to this issue.

    We women aren't just meant to be confined in the four walls of the house.
    We are meant to soar high with our intelligence, resilience, perserverance, dreams, capabilities and free will.

    Why are we made to feel like the breathe we take is not even ours?
    What is exactly ours?
    We are ours.
    Our body is ours.
    Our individuality is ours.
    Our dreams are ours.
    Our voice is ours.
    Our life is ours.

    I smell male patriarchy, suppression and the dirt that one woman throws on another in the air.
    What is more beautiful than a woman lifting up another?
    Why are we so tangled that we become obstacle of our own progress?
    The last thing a woman needs is another woman degrading her.

    Men and women lifting eachother up is what a revolutionary world looks like.
    A world with voices of every gender heard is a world full of rhythm.
    Understanding eachother and their individuality, respecting it and helping eachother in the circle of life is a life indeed.
    A life with shared responsibilities, equal opportunities is a life worth living.
    A world with equality, respect and equity is a world afterall.

    फूलनदेवी आज आपका शहादत दिवस है आप हमेशा महिलाओं को प्रेरित करती रहेंगी । अत्याचार बलात्कार जैसी घटनाओं के खिलाफ हथियार उठाकर आपने जो जाति और लिंग भेद की बेड़ियों को तोड़ते हुए संघर्ष किया वो सदैव प्रेरणा दायीं रहेगा । माना कि हथियार सही रास्ता नहीं हो सकता पर फ़िर भी आपकी कहानी महिलाओं के लिए सदैव प्रेरणादायी रहेगी और आज के वक्त में कुछ और ज्यादा जब बलात्कार की इतनी घटनाएं होती है जब दलितों को शोषित करने की हजारो हजार घटनाएं हो रहीं है । बड़े दुःख की बात है कि अगर सिर्फ बलात्कार और दलित अत्याचार पर एक अख़बार निकाला जाएगा तो उसमें भी सभी घटनाओं को नहीं छाप पाएंगे । कुछ लोग कहतें है कि मानव समाज ने प्रगति किया है, पर कैसी प्रगति ? कैसा बदलाव? हम आज मनुष्य से जानवर बन रहे है । सिर्फ दोहन करना सीख रहे है चाहे वो किसी का भी हो ।

    I hope one day Gender ,sexuality, preference and all things which am still not aware of will be no more a topic of taboo for society. I hope one day we don't need to teach and educate people to accept them but to believe and propagate the idea that they already belong here as much as we so called "normals" do . One day i hope they
    can roam and breath freely with no judgments.

    I believe i m too young to speak all this but still here's my try to give it a voice. I had no intention of #nohappyending but that's how things are in reality only few experience a fairy tale here ����

    Correct me if i m wrong somewhere

    Amidst shards of toycars and blue cradles
    He painted salmon skies of identity in doddle
    His skin suffocated in saffron shirts and hoax attire
    behind closed doors he draped the dolls with pious desires
    "Two shades of lipsticks "gifted his parched lips wide smile
    But they preached thick strands of moustache suited his style
    he smudged the stroke of fearless kohl in his ocean eyes
    Vigilant looks of mob drenched his cheeks with storm of cries
    he hummed the serenades in nights in his silken voice
    and choked his existence with echoes of manly noise
    "One stroke of nailpaints "graced his beauteous glory
    and few stealth of sleeves shielded his gallant story
    He teared the traces of sexuality with knives of aphaetic role
    And embraced the cwtches of torment just to be a part of all
    Day by day every inch of skin mourned his journey of lies
    clutched his conscience and suffocated his collarbones with tye
    Self love sobbed all summers, Withered wishes wailed in winters
    Breezes burnt his blushes and rainbows rashed his fingers
    And one evening he freed his fears and decorated all self doubts
    "One splash of foundation" and gentle touch of blooming brushes
    He painted his skin magenta and clothed chromatic hope
    He scrambled upon blue stool and kissed the brown rope
    He loosened tight traditions and played the pride cassette
    Holding the tiny doll he hugged the SHE caged in her soul
    i witnessed it all and chased his last breath through my quill
    I scribble and scribble the fatal facts and rhyme my rage
    They all praise my pieces and deny their duties with no voice for CHANGE!

    Stereotypes.(2)

    While there is a huge debate going on concerning cooking skill and its association with gender.

    Me: If you are a human with a stomach then you should know how to earn food and how to cook food.
    If you are an animal with a stomach then you should know how to hunt or search for food.
    That's it.

    कहें बाध्य हो जीवन में,
    नर का तन लेकर कैसें,
    मैं प्रियतम संग प्यार करूँ।

    होती गर में भी नारी,
    तो हक होता उन पर मेरा,
    प्रेयसी नहीं भामिनी बनकर,
    मैं भी अपनी मांग भरूँ।

    यह बैरन दुःख साध्य कियो,
    जीवन का आनंद प्रेम,
    कैसें वो प्रेम स्वीकार करूँ।

    फिर भी है आनंद मुझें,
    वो मिलें जो मेरे अपनें है,
    जिनके आगें मैं नितदिन,
    षोडश सुंदर श्रृंगार करूँ।
