Born to Die
by Parichita Priyadarshini
Bookmark and Share
 

Oh, Mother,
what's my mistake
why did you go away
after giving me birth...?

I understand your plight, Mom
you failed to nurture me
because "I am a girl"

I know you are not so merciless
it is the niggard society that made you
encroach on my wish to live.

Why society's thought is so sordid, Mom
Why they think a girl's birth is a peril?
Are Sania Mirza, Kalpana Chawla and Mary Kom
                 not girls?
They are the ones for whom today
our India is proud of.

So wake up my society,
accept the truth
today's generation is girls’ generation
without them the world goes nowhere.

I know I was born to die
haply to pass on this message to all
not to blame my Mom.


(A poem written after seeing a girl child dumped in a roadside canal)
