Neela Nath

History And Mythology Say..

Every morning any newspaper
Can serve you the news- - - - -
A baby of six months, a girl of
Twelve, two sisters, or a lady,
Of any village, any town or city
Have been raped, gang raped.
Some say, unemployment is the
Main cause behind this,
Frustrated generation has no way
Out to express their grievance;
Orthodox people say, the attire of the victims,
Co-education, free-mixing, and freedom
Make the women face such problems.
So, child marriage is a must.
But, child can't escape the rapists grip.
And in some cases, women are being
Raped over property dispute even
By a gang led by her ex-husband.
Political parties take help of this crime,
To stop the voice of the peoples.
An M.P/Actor instigated his party-fellows
To rape the daughters, sisters, wives
Of the members of opponent political
Parities in West Bengal, India.
But, history and mythology say,
Whoever insulted women in the past
Had been annihilated by The Power Supreme.

    I agree with you, late marriage is one of the causes of these ugly incidents. (Report) Reply

    It's a beautiful human world, is it not.? And we claim to be civilized, when most of the time we only harm each other with senseless crime? . Man a most destructive being. Pity
    As sad as this theme is, thank you Neela, for the bitter truth. (Report) Reply
