Aftab Alam (15 th April 1967 / PRASTOLI, DORANDA, RANCHI, JHARKHAND, INDIA)
A lamb in the jungle of men
Iirl asked many questions to her mother:
Who has made us;
A lamb in the jungle of men?
And who the men are?
We are your children
'The children from the womb of mother'
Born as man and woman
Half of the world belomgs to us
Why they encroached, our queendom
Why we called only a kingdom?
Is it fair mom,
'No it is not fair'
I am your mother.
Your nation is your mother,
Politicians and bureaucrats:
All those criminals raped me
My pain, your pain and the earth's pain
Our pain is for devils enjoyment
On this earth, women is also an earth
People robbed both, , mercilessly
What difference we have
Man and woman?
There are only two Castes,
Man and Woman,
White or black or moderate
With same geography
Caste, religion and creed
Existed on the tongue of greed
All the above three are the weed
And nothing else
Those who hurt others will not be hurt by themselves
They must realise, rapist hurting to themselves
