Let us think anew on this Republic Day - 2013

Let us think anew in this Republic Day - 2013
This day in 1950 India became a Republic
But this 64th Republic Day forces me to think
Something special and new, especially for Indian women
We see nowadays quite a number of harms done to them
There may not be a breaking news
But, there will always be a raping news
Age across girls and women are victims to this male misbehavior
We also see a great number of learned
And vociferous women appearing as panelists in a range of
Discussions on varied topics
A demonstration that proves that Indian women are
No where less to their spouses and counter gender
All these trigger me, prompt me, to think
Why not there be a separate political outfit for women
It can be National Women's Party
It can be Indian Women's Party
It can be any such name
With a woman President
With a woman General Secretary
With a woman Treasurer and so on
The emphasis is that there are only woman members in that
The policies and objectives can be so that
All Indian women, including those already in power
Join the party and make it a challenging outfit
To already existing policy-faulting, corrupt-ridden
Political parties, national or regional
By chance, if they turn successful
All representatives will be women
Likely, if this happens, more and more women
Will be there to make decisions towards national cause
Likely, they are less corruption supportive
Likely, they take more pointed solutions
Likely, they have pointed questions to ask
Likely, they have pointed answers to offer
Likely, they make more technical decisions
Than political decisions the nation witnessed so far
They are capable of making minds meet
They are capable of making wisdom dawn
They are capable of making emotions melt
They are capable of making neightbours friendly
They are capable of making economy stabilize
They are capable of making religions tolerant
They are capable of making governance grand
They are capable of making Indians proud
They are capable of making their existence safe
I fondly wish this becomes a reality
And on this Republic Day let a seed be sown
For this great tree to establish

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
