    What were you doing, when a woman was judged just for an attribute of heaven - BEAUTY
    Were you trying to tell her that she is born to feel full on her own and be her own storyteller?
    Or were you singing the lullabies of being a miracle maker and a life-giver?

    What were you doing, when a woman was filling all her pockets with weapons before leaving the street?
    With her heart full of fear and her mind full of what-ifs?
    Were you trying to tell her, that she has the privilege to be at her destination?
    Or were you trying to sing out loud how foolish it is to even think that?

    What were you doing, when a woman was putting on lipstick
    with that cute little polka dot dress, she bought for herself?
    Were you telling her just how beautiful she is looking tonight?
    Or were you there, smashing the mirrors because no one sees beauty and soul anymore
    And all they can see is the excuse to exploit her instead?

    What were you doing, when she was wandering off in this labyrinth of life?
    Trying to figure out how much stronger she needs to be
    To stand up on her own feet and convince the world that she can do anything on her own?
    Were you trying to let her paint the character with her own palate?
    Or were you caging her wings even before she knew and telling her to smile because that should be her ideal life?

    What were you doing when you were reading this?
    Were you picturing a woman you loved and cared for
    And deciding how to do better for her?
    Or were you taking inspiration on how to be a masterpiece
    In pretending how much you care for her?
    While making this entire world so suffocating
    That someone else needs to be the voice for her?

    People of my blood
    Have always wondered
    They used to ask me
    "Seriously! Aren't you
    Afraid of ghosts"
    I would say "Nah"
    Little did they know
    Am afraid of something else
    Something terrifying
    Than the ghosts

    Anxiety and panic attacks
    Have become my uninvited guests
    But am afraid
    To admit what I feel
    To admit what I go through
    Afraid of people
    Am just trying
    Trying to be
    Strong and bold

    Having done with my
    Office chores
    Around 7PM
    I was walking from
    My workplace
    Towards home
    With my mask

    I just love walking
    It has always been my choice
    Over other modes of transport
    These days it also feels sometimes
    Like a do or die task
    It makes me anxious
    When people stare for no reason

    When some stranger
    Suddenly appears from nowhere
    I get anxious
    I feel my nerves
    No matter he is good or evil
    My heart keeps beating
    Wishing not to encounter

    It was a pleasant evening
    As calm as an ocean
    The rain had just stopped
    The roads were clumsy
    There were hardly
    People on the road

    It's a short distance
    This pandemic has shortened
    The distance between my
    Personal and professional life
    To a period of five minutes

    Failing to lock my
    Anxiety and fear
    I locked my office door
    I could barely see
    Any people on the road
    I kept telling myself
    "A right and a left
    You'll be back home
    Keep going"

    As I kept walking
    I could see my house
    At the end of street
    The streetlights
    Not so bright
    Were my only company

    Two blocks away
    From my house
    "Just few more steps"
    Echoed my brain
    My heart began relaxing
    Feeling safe

    Before I could feel safe
    "Shall we go", said a voice
    Breaking the silence
    There was this guy
    Staring at me
    "Shall we go", he said again
    As I stared, his eyes withdrew
    He moved past me
    And greeted an auto driver
    Who was standing behind me
    And again said
    "Shall we go"
    I calmed myself telling
    It wasn't for me

    I rushed to my gates
    Opened, stepped in
    And breathe out
    I rung the door bell
    Hoping to hear
    The noise of auto vanishing
    I did hear the noise
    Not vanishing
    But approaching

    The auto came near my gate
    They u-turned , stared
    Laughed and flew
    Leaving me anxious
    And clueless of their act
    Am afraid tomorrow or someday
    This might happen again

    Am not exaggerating
    But it is how a girl feels
    When approached, stared
    Or encountered by a stranger

    I could not tell my family
    If I tell, there are two possibilities
    Either they ll warn those people
    Or stop me from going out
    Mostly the latter
    And it sucks
    The fact that I can't do anything
    I love because of some humans
    Like them sucks

    A FAR CRY

    Am afraid of something else

    Omg, does that still exist?
    Well I don't see any. All I see
    is the newspapers with rape
    cases, female foeticide, murders
    and harassment. I don't think it exists.

    If that exists, then why are fathers
    mourning for their daughters who
    lacked safety in a country that has
    millions of people in it?

    If that exists, then why are girls
    carrying pepper spray and knife
    in their hand bags?

    If that exists, then why are women's
    college existing? I don't know.
    If freedom exists, then why are
    girls dressing what the society likes?
    I don't think she is living for the society.
    God made her and it's her right to
    decide how to live.

    If you say there's freedom, then
    why is she asked to stay inside
    when there's bunch of men standing out?
    I guess they both are humans,
    and she isn't some alien to enter the street.

    If you believe there's freedom, then
    why does she have to be afraid to step out
    in the dark? because snakes would harm her?
    or dogs would bite her? NO!! it's because
    ANIMALS would rape her. yeah, they're animals.

    If she's blamed for wearing jeans,
    if she's humiliated for wearing T-shirt,
    why are men not blamed for seeing her
    lustfully? why is the shit society not enquiring
    what those men doing in that dark night outside?

    not a feminist

    I'm not a feminist. I dont want to be a male i dont want to be a female. i just want to live- this is all what a girl thinks all her life. Women, everyday, every minute are insecure about everything. Walking on the streets, not at night nor in the evening.We are scared to go out even in the morning or even in the afternoon and do you know what's the fear?-It's of getting raped. Right from the childhood we were taught in schools (which i do not feel is a privilage-its a basic human right) that EVERYONE-BE IT FEMALE OR MALE OR TANSGENDERS OR LGB- everyone had the the right to to do whatever they wanted (legal ofcourse) but as i grew up as a woman, i was told not to-

    SAFETY?

    Quiet, desolate places scare us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    All government policies and cameras can't assure us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    A male companion can't always save us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    All training in self defence seems to fail us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    Lack of public transport scares us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    Late night parties scare us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    On being molested, society mockingly blames us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    Thoughts of parking in basement parkings horrify us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    The sluggish judiciary can't give justice to us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    A trip with colleagues worries us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    Trusting men over social media scares us
    Any man lurking behind can grope us

    Wearing short dresses makes men take a shot at us
    Drinking, smoking in public vilifies us
    Yes we know that Not All Men as they say
    But who can tell why All Womxn are scared everyday?

    Rape

    "All Indians are my brothers and sisters" is the pledge taken in a country where 32,000 rape cases are recorded every year
    You dont really mean what you say do you??
    WHAT A SHAME
    ©jemimahjerald

  • sensitive_observer 54w

    Rape is ‘forced sex’. There are two words. First consider ‘sex’. It happens due to arousal. A myth regarding this is that short or tight attire of girls arouses men.

    Stop selling that bullshit!

    To all experienced men, admit how many times porn turned you on vs you watched porn because you were aroused? So it's just a lame blame.

    Moving on, one more blame that girls give signals that they are interested. Ok if it is so, and if you can read her signals and sense that she is interested, why can't you hear her screaming and sense her resistance, you asshole?

    I'm ashamed. I'm ashamed that there are some rascals roaming on streets which belongs to the same gender, same race as I do. I get ashamed when some nights while returning home, a random girl walking ahead of me suddenly starts moving in pace. I'm ashamed of her doubt. I can't explain her so I slow down. If I can why can't they?

    Getting aroused is very normal and yes sex is our need. And you know what it is the need of animals too. But what differentiates us from them is the ability to control it. Our ethics.

    At last, as I always ask, why isn't any fear established in every male's mind? Why isn't any harsh punishment exists or getting conducted that can shake the very first thought of committing? Does first class security belongs to only celebrities? Or only those who disrespect some great leader deserves punishment? We need as frightful consequences as the torment caused. WE NEED ACTIONS!

    Fear

    ©akshiwrites

    I fear being a girl in this barbaric society
    I fear for my life
    I fear for my existence
    Every day I hear about brutal crimes against women,
    it adds to my existing fear

    What happened in Hathras, doesn't surprise me. It has happened before and God knows if it will ever stop! Police, so called "saviour" of people, acts as nothing but an agent of fear. And issues like women safety and gender equality doesn't interest so called "leaders of our nation". Thus, my faith in witnessing women safe had been crushed a long time ago and all I am left with is fear because lack of faith gives shelter to fear.

    No, not just political system or police is to be blamed. These people belong to the same society we live in. These people share same mindset as ours. Hence, this society needs to change but you know what as I said my faith in witnessing women safe had been crushed a long time ago. Yes, a long time ago when "Nirbhaya" happened. I thought nothing worse than this can ever happen but I was wrong. It happened. It happened again and again and with all this my fear kept increasing and my faith in humanity kept shattering.

    No moral lessons from my side because when it comes to all this, I am hopeless. I literally have no hope or faith. Still I would pray this world becomes as I see it in my day-dreams for women. A world where women are equal to men, where women have faith in their heart instead of fear, where women can live as per their choices, where no woman has to ever go through any heinous crime against her.

    ������‍��Women's day special ����

    ��‍♂️��‍♀️Stand up for yourself��‍♀️��‍♂️
     Whether you are a man or a woman, you will have to learn to fend for yourself in the real world if you want to avoid being taken advantage of. You must learn how to stand up for yourself at school, at work, and in your social life.

    Work on asserting yourself. Don’t be ashamed or apologetic about asserting yourself. Assertiveness is the middle ground between passivity and aggression.

    People who are effectively assertive are more happy in relationships and have higher self-esteem.

    Use “I” statements-
    These types of statements are less accusatory, and instead they convey that you are taking responsibility for your own actions and feelings.

    For example, instead of saying, “You never listen to me,” you can say, “I feel ignored when you constantly check your phone while talking to me.”

    Learn to say no- Put your own needs first instead of always trying to accommodate other people first.

    If someone keeps asking to borrow money, for example, you can decline their request.

    If a friend keeps borrowing your car, you can tell her that the car is not available for her anymore.

    International Women's Day

    Every year 8th March is celebrated as "International Women's Day".
    This is only day in a year where Girl/Women is respected more than normal day.In my opinion, We as a Indian Male community don't deserve to wish any Indian girl/women a Happy Women's Day because they don't deserve that for many reasons that I have came across in recent times.

    Rape Cases from 65-80 yr old women to 15 days/2 or 4 month baby girl by 8/10 men who even doesn't know that she is born in such country where humans are literally acting like wild animals.Everyday Newspaper are having no.of rape cases mentioned and there are many such cases doesn't come into limelight.Some few cases like Delhi, Hyderabad, Unnao and Kopardi becomes Front Page News.

    7th and 10th Std School girls giving birth to
    premature babies in hostel rooms.

    Buying and Selling of newborn baby girl for ₹10K/20K and then forcing them in their puberty age to work as sex workers in red light area.

    Harassment/Killing of the Newly married women for Dowry money.Now, Marriages are only meant for Dowry money in some areas of India in this 21st Century

    Acid Attacks on Girl/Women because of hate/rejection.

    Eve Teasing, Masturbation Cases in front of Girl/Women Train and Taxi without any fear to fulfill their anxieties.

    Abortion of Baby Girl or dumping the newborn baby girl in Gutters/Dustbins because they think that she can't do anything for family.

    An Indian Girl/Women are so insecure where they have to carry peppper spray and have to attend self defense workshop to protect themselves.

    Women Leader like Indra Nooyi, Kiran Mazumdar running the corporate and FM Nirmala Sitaraman handling the India's Finance Sector so smoothly and efficiently
    Tanya Shergill 4th Gen Army Officer leading Men's Contingent Marching Force during Republic Day.
    Many Widow women after martyr of their husband in the Army, joining Indian Army to serve the country to fulfill their husband's dream.

    In India , One day when Rape Case, Acid Attacks, Baby Girl Abortion becomes Zero and Indian Girl/Women will feel safe in this Country and From That Day Every Day would Happy Women's Day for every Indian Women with equal respect, equal pay and equal position in the Indian Society.

    Jai Hind!

    प्रियंका ..
    ईश्वर तुम्हारी आत्मा को शांति दे।

    माफ करना,
    शांति कि प्रार्थना ईश्वर के पास हीं करनी पड़ती है,
    क्योंकि, ईश्वर ,शांति कि हीं तरह एक मिथ्या है
    दोनों हीं कभी किसी को नहीं मिलते।

    वैसे तो नींद में तुम्हें जबरदस्ती सुला दिया गया है
    मगर अब सो हीं गई हो,
    तो निश्चिंत होकर सोना।

    हम हैं यहाँ
    सवा सौ करोड़ जनता,
    तुम्हारी आवाज़ बनकर , तुम्हारे लिए न्याय माँगने वाले

    तुम्हारी खबर ने हमें फिर झकझोरा है
    हमारी मृत आत्मा ने फिर से आह भरी है
    हम फिर से,
    उन गढ्ढों कि ओर देख २हे हैं,
    संस्का२ों के नाम पर जिसे नजरअंदाज करते आए हैं||

    हम निकलेंगे,
    हर मोंड़, हर गली में
    एक बार फिर भिड़ जुटेगी तुम्हारे नाम पर
    एक बार फिर नारे लगेंगे
    किसी को लटकाने कि माँग करेंगे
    किसी को बचाने कि मुहिम चलाऐंगे
    २ाजनिवास कि मखमली कालिन प२
    चहलकदमी बढ़ेगी
    कानून को सख्त करने की माँग
    एक बार फिर उठेगी,
    तुम घबराना मत
    तुम्हारे न्याय कि लड़ाई जरुर लड़ी जाएगी||

    कभी हो सकता है,
    मीडिया के शोर में तुम्हें लगेगा कि,
    तुम्हारी आवाज दब २ही है
    हम सभी ,
    मुद्दों से भटक कर,
    लेफ्ट और २ाइट कि और मुड़ रहे हैं
    धर्म और जाति कि गली कि ओर यह शोर बढ़ २हा है

    फिर भि तुम घबराना मत
    तुम चैन से सोना
    वक्त लगेगा
    पर तुम्हें न्याय जरुर मिलेगा||

    Inescapable Karma

    To all creepy men
    Who cannot control a catcall and jeer
    Or feel compelled to give
    A lascivious look and a lewd leer

    You're in for trouble,
    So do lend me your ear
    Would you do that to your mom, wife, sister or daughter,
    Who are so dear?

    Why does abuse happen
    So often to women here?
    Look at the West and the Gulf
    How strictly to the laws they adhere!

    Or at the Americas and Australia
    Where women walk around without fear!
    Seems like in India rapes will stop
    Only when threatened by those in power?

    Of late even that has been ineffective
    The condemnations are met with a mock and a sneer
    The remorseless bastards get reprieve after reprieve
    Sitting in jail year after year!

    Why isn't justice fast and furious
    Like the speed of a lion after a deer?
    Their thoughts can't be divined, but
    The sentence for the actions must be immediate and severe!

    It must be such that
    Their hearts will stop and their skin will sear!
    If the law is delayed, how long can women act
    With pepper spray and chill powder?

    India's stigma shall not escape
    Your inevitable doom is very near
    Common man fights with protests and words
    But those who can act, change and interfere

    You, India urges to protect women
    And wipe their every single tear!
    India shall lend you her might
    For all to see and hear!

    The rapist pulls innocent women into himself
    Like the desert's deadly quagmire
    We must not let this happen!
    We must fight fire with fire!

    So, creepy men, the consequences will be dire
    And India will vent her ire!
    IS THAT CLEAR?
