On Watching My Polity - Poem by Nasarudheen.P. Parameswaran

Such was my country twenty-one Summers ago
In a starry night I, with my wife Prema young
Walked along the road of midnight Mysore slow
As snow veil clad chilling breeze rippled along.
No rapist, drunkard, rowdy, as hyenas did draw
No clique with camera to strip or rape did throng
An auto -driver so friendly took us to a lodge; so
Gladly with son Sudev we enjoyed Dassara song.

Now, in every city, I fancy, Sahasralinga’s attacks
From Bars with bars such barbarians may pounce
As executive dread such law-breakers to punish.
Political aspirants languid sit in and pronounce
In Parliament to protect the culprits from barracks
Deceiving democrats and putting them in anguish.
===================================== =

    Excellent write sir. But how long we can be surprised? Rape has become so common sir. Nowadays I dont have that oh-my-God feeling anymore. I just hope that doesnt happen to persons I know. Every other day a rape is occured. Statistics says one woman in world is being attacked in every 3 minutes. One woman is sexually assaulted in every 5 minutes. And one woman is killed in every 18 minutes.

    Sad when man does not know the difference between mother and woman. There is a wonderful poem written by fellow poet Hardik Vaidya on Delhi Rape, which is a harsher, stronger and brutal tone of what you have written.
