India Witnesses More Rapes - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

When robbed, no shame is to the victim.
When swindled, no shame is to the victim.
When raped, all shame is to the raped.
The society is to be blamed.

No publicity to the one robbed.
No publicity to the one swindled.
All publicity to the one raped.
The society is to be blamed.

The trauma experienced
By the woman raped is severer
Than that of the robbed and swindled.
The society is to be blamed.

The robber gets the public’s wrath.
The swindler gets the public’s wrath.
The rapist slips as a conqueror.
The society is to be blamed.
