Customsover Ride Laws - Poem by mamutty CHOLA


Despie being free since 70 years, customs still dominate
Oppression on dalitss andchild marriage still rampant

Marriages out of casteand religion are viewedadversely
Couples are either separated or killedfor violation of traditions

Culprints move around with immunity and with out fear of law
Laws are observedmore in breach than in compliance

The power that beis more concerned with vote banks than governance
Resulting inincreasing incidents of lynching and killings with immunity

The salogans ofinclusive development andgood days are mere farce
The forces of intolerance, if not checked will shake the verysocial fabric

Posing serious threats tothe concept of unity in diversity; very
idea of India
Rooted in her5000 yearsglorious history oftoleranceand co-existence.
