Saga of a "Black" Doll

In the corner of a house
black doll share the space 
with the heap of dust and thousands of mice.

Her pink chiffon dress
has blackened and 
her curly hair bear the sign of a complete mess.

When it was bought anew,
it used to be everyone's favorite
and the girl had shared it with a few. 

But with the passing time,
it lost its glaze and 
the charming craze about this also drowned in haze.

Today, the long negligence only gave 
the dull skin, ugly looks and 
the curly hair entangled in cobweb.

It seems a hint of racism always 
prevails in mankind.
Otherwise, fairer dolls could never replace the doll from the girl's mind.

Gau(MATA)s of My Country

Gau politics is enjoying special limelight now-a-days. A clan has taken the duty to apotheosis this matter damn seriously. Other factions are not getting tired of loathing such nonsense (according to them) this. By the way our "North Blockadhishwars"  have chosen to stand with the first team. 

Few days ago a news of acid attacks on fifteen cows and oxen from Karmana village in Uttar Pradesh  (India) has spoken volume of the vulnerabilities of this four-legged-two-horned species. The pictures of those suffering animals were so disturbing that the media chose not to share it in their news column. The shaking truth comes out from the villagers information on that issue. That says the unproductive and abandoned (by the owner) were the main target of this heinous crime. 

 Is this situation has any similarity with the present condition of women in our society? The "abandoned" word also get used easily for the women staying in legal separation from their husbands (in old dialect which also stand for the meaning of "Master of house").For those woman our society also holds a vitriolic perception regarding their character and humanity. Sometimes, they also receive the same treatment, as those fifteen bovine specie, from their aggravated-for-being-rejected paramours.

Similarly, the accusation of unproductivity always impends on the fate of the female members in our society. Sometimes, which also begets the cause of such aforementioned "abandance".  From this, one can easily understand that those four-legged creatures and woman in our society are sailing in the same boat in some particular situations. 

It seems like a new vahini of Mahila-rakshak can easily be introduced which will go hand in hand with the new fad of Gau-raksa because the word ''GAU'' also includes the term "MATA" with it. Will the idea be handy??

A Winsome Rhapsody

Why should I give them that bit of share?
Mom, here I am.
Standing high among them.
One-day, I used to be the cause of their shame.
Now, they just want a little share of my fame.

But why should I give them that bit of share?
My grief and pain were hard to tame; 
when they used to laugh at me for my
dark skin and healthy body frame. 
That time, it was their nasty, favorite game.

My soul and personality is still the same.
Self-reliance and self-confidence are the two things,
that have suddenly turned me into a gem.
