    When you see your uncle
    breathing the air of worry
    during his daughter's marriage
    to pile up the money for dowry,
    don't let the silence hold you.
    Raise your voice
    Raise your voice

    When you see the sweet aunty
    in your neighbourhood
    getting scolded & beaten every day
    Still, she tolerates that with fortitude,
    don't let the silence hold you.
    Raise your voice
    Raise your voice

    When you see your sister
    enduring mental torture
    because biology blessed her
    with a female toddler,
    don't let the silence hold you.
    Raise your voice
    Raise your voice

    When you see your brother
    along with his other friends
    making fun of a girl
    for her short dress,
    don't let the silence hold you.
    Raise your voice
    Raise your voice

    When you see your mother
    betraying her hobbies
    and between her job & household
    making her life cease,
    don't let the silence hold you.
    Raise your voice
    Raise your voice

    When you see your father
    listening to the taunt of society
    for allowing you for higher studies
    due to his broad mentality,
    don't let the silence hold you.
    Raise your voice
    Raise your voice

    When you see your bestie
    weeping without wanting to discuss
    for being improperly touched
    in a crowded city bus,
    don't let the silence hold you.
    Raise your voice
    Raise your voice

    When the stench of injustice
    against women
    suffocates your conscience
    & binds you in guilt glen,
    don't let the silence hold you.
    Raise your voice
    Raise your voice
