Nirbhaya Lives On....
by Padmaja Iyengar - Paddy
Bookmark and Share
  Common folks keep Nirbhaya’s fire aflame,
She’s gone but our life’s no longer the same....
This time, protests are not just in name,
Though politicians keep playing the usual game,
Government’s trying to act beyond just blame...!
 
Molestations and gang rapes still continue,
Though arrests are seldom and just a few...
Reportage and awareness - now more.
Every incident sees an outrage outpour.
To tackle the menace, we’ve to think anew...
 
Strong signals need to be sent out;
With actions swift leaving no doubt
That perpetrators will be caught and punished;
And they will be permanently banished
From any right to move freely about...!
 
To keep the Nirbhaya spirit alive,
Law enforcers and people must strive,
To be alert and ever-vigilant
And to proactively prevent
Bids to molest or rape girls, kids naive...
