    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.

    - By Raj Kashyap..

    Behan

    'Bro is an emotion',
    Okay! Okay!
    Will 'Behan' become an emotion too?
    Adding some flavour of feminism
    And love towards our language!
    That'll not work!
    If you still doubt that,
    Try calling some guy 'Behan',
    I don't think one will make a good face

    Time to Get Off the Fence

    Perhaps men who have considered themselves to be pro-feminist have never fully understood that simply standing out of the way doesn’t make you a brother-in-arms – it makes you a spectator.

    And if you open your male mouth to express solidarity but your words betray your fence-sitting, then it amounts to the same thing; you are no more than a witness, a bystander. You just ‘happened to be there’.

    Stop doing the dance. Get off the fence. Start representing a better version of what a man can be.

    Don't just say you support women. 
    Do it. Live it. Be it.

    Wishes are like cage
    To get those wish
    You have to struggle hard
    Fight, fight
    You may think
    "Let's end"
    But, never give up.
    Raise, have a hope
    Trust the "Time"
    One day or other
    Your wishes come true
    Your soul brightens
    That's life!

    RESPECT WOMEN

    He doesn't need to touch her body.

    The way his eyes focus on her is
    also, an molest!

    STOP KILLING FEMALE INFANTICIDE*

    Being born as a woman is not a
    curse because, no one in this universe can play her role as part and
    as equal to nature!

    Artwork

    She was her own artwork. Finely made from all the lessons she learned from her failures. Carefully designed with all the scars shining as beaming lights. Fears were refrained from taking a seat on her forehead. She hunted down all her insecurities and regrets that let her down and buried them deep into the ground.
    Rejoicing and dancing were the souls of her grandmothers watching her become the fearless woman living on her own terms not being dominated by the norms of the society or by any man.

    Men, remember

    We glorified
    Womanhood
    To restrict you
    To brooms.

    Celebrated
    Motherhood
    To confine you
    To rooms.

    We pitied you to
    Hold hostage in
    Soft-emotions.

    Stereotyped to
    Force you in
    Clothes of desire.

    Ladies first we
    Say,
    Unequal salaries
    We pay.

    To force you to
    Cut onions.
    Men shouldn't cry,
    We declare.

    You may wage wars.
    Rule the world.
    Mother a prophet or
    Slave a demon.

    Still, you gotta
    Take our blame
    And make our
    Homes.

    You're better than us.
    Even stronger.
    But consolation
    Prizes is all you'll get..

    Maybe another
    Child to pet.
    A saree,
    Some jwellery or

    One more poem
    Like this one to
    Exemplify your
    Compliant behavior.

    वो लिखा है मैंने जो अब तक देखा है समझा है।
    किसी लिंग का विरुद्ध करने के लिए नही
    बल्कि विचारधारा को शुद्ध करने के लिए।

    परिवर्तन

    माना की कहीं – कहीं है प्रश्न चिन्ह
    फिर भी जवाब सवाल से नही है भिन्न

    कन्याभूर्ण हत्या:
    जान ले जहां ये
    काश हम भी जन्मे होते दुआओं पे
    सही माना जाता है जब मरते है भीतर कोख के
    तो क्यों धरती पे मरने पे मानते है शोक ये?

    भेदभाव:
    शायद मानवता का है अभाव
    तभी तो कर रखा है बेटे बेटी में भेदभाव
    माना की बेटा राज दुलारा,
    तो बेटी से क्यों इतना अलगाव?

    शिक्षा:
    हां माना अलग रचा है हमे
    इस दुनिया ने उससे भी अलग रूप में अपनाई
    भाई से पूछे ये कितनी की है पढ़ाई
    क्यों पूछते हो बहन से, अब तक कितनी रोटी बनाई?

    शादी:
    करे ये दुनिया हाय–हाय
    लड़की को माने बलाए
    शादी हो गई उसकी
    तो ऐसा क्यों कहते हो, की बाप ने उसके गंगा नहाय?

    पराया धन:
    ले ही लो ना किराया
    जब मान रखा है पराया
    सपनो की लड़ाई करती है वो
    तो फिर सब ने उसे पराया धन कह कर क्यों हराया?

    दहेज़:
    आगे बढ़ रहे है हम
    पर दकियानूसी सोच उससे भी है तेज़
    हां ज्यादा खर्च नही करेंगे पढ़ाई पे
    तो लाखों में क्यूं देते हो दहेज़?

    तलाक:
    हर बार समझोता का विष पिए
    घुट घुट कर हर दफा वो जिए
    कर देते है एक लड़की का अस्तित्व खाक
    तो आखिर क्यों गलत है तलाक?

    मज़बूरी:
    कुछ मन्नते नहीं भी होती है पूरी
    जो ले आते है सपनो में दूरी
    अक्सर कहते सुना है की वो होती है गुरूर
    तो क्यों मान लेते हो की एक बेटी है, हम है मजबूर?

    अकेली:
    ज्यादा खुल के ना हंसे
    ये दुनिया हर रोज बेरियों में कसे
    कहते है लड़की को अकेले रात में नही जाता जाया
    तो बेटों को सब की इज्ज़त करना क्यूं नही सिखाया?

    कपड़े:
    सपने पूरे हो ना हो
    कपड़े होने चाहिए पूरे
    तन ढका रहना आवश्यक है
    पर उसका क्या जो सलवार सूट में भी घूरे?

    रेड लाइट एरिया:
    देह व्यापार का धंधा होता है गंदा
    फिर भी सही है बंदा
    बेटा जाए मर्जी से फिर भी होता है दुलारू
    फरोशी में धकेले गई औरत,क्यों बन जाती है बाजारू?

    शत्रु:
    अक्सर कहती है वो, ये तो चलते आ रहा है
    हमने किया है तुम भी करो
    ये जान के ही टूट जाता है मन
    औरत ही होती है औरत की सबसे बड़ी दुश्मन।।।

    तुम्हारे पितृतंत्र पे ताली क्यूं?
    मेरा महिलावादी होना गाली क्यों?

    Inked

    The implication was
    it wasn't for me.
    When pressed, it was
    to be removed
    from my hands
    like an inappropriate
    thing from a child.
    "Ah-ah - not for you!"
    I learned afterwards
    it was a female text.
    The mystery!
    The great unknown!
    Like discovering sex,
    it was only going
    to make me wiser,
    more worldly,
    and more in love with the other.
    Their mark was upon me
    long before they were forbidden.

    Pemberi

    Apakah hanya sekedar mendengar?
    Tanpa jawab di bibirmu

    Apakah kau selalu begitu
    Memberi tanpa diminta
    Meminta tanpa diberi

    Tidakkah kau menyesal tuk semua kisah lalu?
    Bukankah kau tlah merasa pahitnya khianat?
    Di manakah sadarmu ?
    Akankah kau terus larut ?

    Berhentilah di situ
    Jangan melangkah terlampau jauh
    Merenunglah sejenak dan
    Lukislah kanvasmu dg kisah yang baru.

    Women attained victory

    From artified enchantments
    To sculpted pain
    Than she broke
    Each and every chain
    When patriarchy barked
    And judgements were laid
    From what she wore
    To how she swayed
    From what she spoke
    To how she stared
    Everything was targeted
    With bitterest judgements
    With every step she took
    People threw punishments
    Sometimes with blames
    At others heinous abuse
    Caged she was
    In illogical excuse
    But she never stopped
    She treaded her ways
    From shacks of patriarchy
    Arose few rays
    Enlightening the world
    With light of confidence
    She traversed the forbidden
    With absolute persistence
    Standing tall and firm
    Rewriting the history
    With ink of progress
    Women attained victory.

    Am I 'Defensive'?

    Why is a woman who speaks her mind labelled defensive?
    Why is a woman's confidence measured against her tone of conviction?
    What is it that we should offer as an incentive
    To wash away the labels on us?
    Why is it a woman who prefers peace called weak..
    Doesn't it show her firm resolve and intelligent streak..?
    Since time immemorial, we have taken that iron clad resolve, forged ourselves to overcome centuries- old labels.
    Then why does it still fall short?
    Why is the grind consistent?
    Why are we still called defensive instead of being applauded for our straight forwardness..

    But you know what that these labels are not strong enough to stop our force, not anymore..
    We will run when we are expected to stand, we will laugh louder when we are expected to be coy..
    We will stand our ground...even if it is shaking..

    Research happened,
    They found out the best way to break her,
    They told her she wasn't beautiful,
    She convinced herself that her heart was,
    They said she looked older,
    She convinced herself that she worked hard hence looked older,
    They said she had grey hair,
    She convinced herself that she is a thinker,
    They said her faced lacked zest,
    She convinced herself she was a whole package of zest that noone would deny.
    They worked hard...
    Found out the best way then..
    Targetted her family... Targetted feminism... Targetted the affection that she would always support them...
    And there she is broken, drenching her pillows, puffing her eyes, managing the nose block and figuring what next...

    Anaphora is a rhetorical device that features repetition of a word or phrase at the beginning of successive sentences, phrases, or clauses.
    Anaphora works as a literary device to allow writers to convey, emphasize, and reinforce meaning.
    This word repetition at the beginning of each phrase in a group of sentences or clauses is a stylized technique that can be very effective in speeches, lyrics, poetry, and prose.

    That girl was a heart of each
    That girl when used to cry, everyone reach
    That girl flow sadness into a happy switch
    That girl only who used to be chief, then why
    That girl is different now because of her bleed
    That girl politeness teach
    That girl is now to be clean
    That girl will cry but compete all at her preach.

    (Killing) Men

    Men - even the word makes my blood boil and my heart burn. But what makes them so appealing?

    Men - what a disgrace to humanity.

    Men - who are anti-misogynistic to a bare minimum, and do not contribute to toxic masculinity.

    Myths say women are built to feel they need men to be happy, yet I'd rather be alone than in a man's company. I'd rather be alone than hear the words "I love you" fall from a man's lips.

    My guts say "I want to kill men", but you and I both know it's a lie. But holy mother of god- don't they make you wish to die?

    Miserable lies about how they will treat the women like a queen, but even the queens are not treated rightfully.

    Maybe it means when I say all men suck or-
    maybe they believe it too but once again I’d rather be alone than being with you.

    A captive in her own room
    that's what she thought
    Like the color of her skin
    the hour was golden
    The electricity that runs through her vein
    her burning desire of prospecting ambient
    Where men reside
    with their greed so powerful, she abides
    Oh dear but for how long ?
    she will soon reliase where she belongs
    Now the peacemakers of the world has swirled their heads from their sight
    not paying attention to the brave women's plight

    Let's change the world

    Don't you think it's time
    to change our world a bit
    to change our perspectives
    to change ourselves a bit.

    Don't you think it's time we learn
    that a woman has dreams too
    that she breathes air and lives too
    that she has feelings too.

    Don't you think it's time we see a woman
    as someone with equal cerebral capacity
    and not a Barbie doll on the shelf,
    that we rewrite our fairy tales
    and weave stories of brave women
    and not damsels awaiting Mr. Prince Charming.

    Don't you think it's time we knew
    that equality is not only physical
    that a girl can voice her opinions too
    that she has the right to succeed too.

    Don't you think it's time we accept
    that a woman can work and manage a house too,
    that a man can work and help in the kitchen too.

    Don't you think it's time we understand
    that a woman's body is hers
    that she has the right to choose
    that she is not an object but a human too.

    Don't you think it's time we realize
    that a victim is not to be blamed
    and the culprit is not to be protected,
    that a woman is not be shackled
    but it's our vile thoughts that should be chained.

    Don't you think it's time we must be taught
    that a man and woman are not antithesis
    but a different version of the same species,
    that we do not succeed by defeating the other
    but by joining hands and working together.

    Don't you think it's time we acknowledge
    that we as women need to change ourselves
    that we must give up hate,jealousy,ego and have each other's back,
    that we are not rivalries
    but the same spirit in different bodies.

    I don't know what you all think
    but I think it's time to change the world
    that it's time we let a girl breathe
    it's time for women to join hands, break barriers and march into a better world.

    Being girl is a Curse;
    Becaus before speaking u have to rehearse.
    Some says if you cook while you are; menstruating you will reborn as a Bitch;
    And so nothing can be done by a witch.
    Some still think it's ok to demand Dowry;
    After getting it's ok if u bury.
    Thousands of restrictions on a Girl;
    But boys go out with whirl.
    A girl can't wear shorts in Public;
    Coz others will think its a trick.
    The solution to make things normal;
    Is to treat others like Equal.
