...but the espy harsh reality

Written for Know Your Star

What we do?
  • We bring you inspiration from up-above-the-sky-so-high. From the heights you might not have scaled yet, but want to and are willing to conquer.
  • We bring you stories of people who have conquered that which was presumed unattainable and unexplored, that which was termed as the unknown.
  • A star adorned in all its glory shines the brightest in the dark sky. We let you know the polishing process from the stars themselves.
  • Time to time, we are raring to come up with tales that awaken the social consciousness and create a healthy society in this wealth-obsessed world.
  • This is a non-profit initiative. We are based out of Bengaluru.

Why we do?
Oh, just an excuse to meet some really cool people. Besides that, we love to spread the message of hope, the glint of possibility, the glimmer of opportunity, the path of contentment, the feeling of accomplishment, the thrill of making dreams come true. We love to explore those issues which constantly hurt our society, forming hurdles that need immediate crossing. We love to spread awareness. We love to sprinkle some cheer around. We love to see you derive some inspiration. We love to live our passion. We love to write. We love to make an impact. Basically, we LOVE.

A fetus in mother's womb
innocent and tender
the outer world is unknown to me
I rather expect them to be blithe
lighthearted to do my welcome
but the espy harsh reality
as soon as I was known to the outer world
It seemed their kind hearts turned into stones
shrouded with coarse and ungenerous  
They tried their best to abort my approach 
but luckily it was too late by then, I was in!
There was no elation or ecstasy
An ultimate sign of their refusal, my own family  
Am I a curse because I am a girl?

I was told, time flies
but their disdain and spurious attachment 
just to show others, never changed
I was treated unequal in every little thing
not allowed to speak against or for 
not to argue or commend
no values to my words, feelings and even my presence
I never failed them or asked about their intentions
Did whatever they asked me for
 I believed my acquaintances were my only God
as I was growing up I started to seek  for what and why
but the espy harsh reality
I wasn't answered but punished brutally
My mind got perplexed, why there is so much difference?
why am opposed at each step?
Just because I am a girl

Am I a curse?

Gradually I found the entire society in its grip
'Its' superstition notions and feeble minded people
with respect to their belief completely illogical 
   I felt a voice within roared for the justice and lost respect
Why we are deceived every now and then??
we possess an equal part and equal rights in the society 
even the laws of our country speaks of the same
but the espy harsh reality
At every corner we are ridiculed by others for no reason 
just because I am a girl, I belong to feminism 
deprived of education, nutrition, development,rights
reason, I am a girl!
  I can not do a job I am willing for
boundless restrictions on what to do and what not to do
where to go and where not to
what to speak and what not to 
even when to live and when to die
Just because I am a girl
Am I a curse?

Insecurity, aversion,exigency,scrape
are the part of women's everyday life
I fear to walk alone in the streets
I hesitate when a man gaze at me
I get agitate when a strange man comes to help me out
I suspect his wrong intentions even if they are good
what has made me think like that??
whether its a baby, woman or a girl 
is being raped, their faces are burned with cruelty
for raising their voice to the wrong happened with them
In spite of blaming to the wrong the entire society
supports and favor to wrong
''but the espy harsh reality'' 
I won't say it anymore!!
there is always a limitation for everything
people who commits wrong are ultimately wrong 
but people supporting to wrong are more culpable 
You and I have woken up and now its time for alarming others
we need to stand out of the box, cross the limitations marked
inbuilt our own place but it would be only possible 
when we all together strive for it!
let's get in action 
let's prove to the world
 I am a girl
And I am not a curse!!

  3. You post give voice to many whispers of women in silence! Like you say, there is always a limitation for everything but it isn't belonging to single gender alone. For me everyone is equal on earth, men perhaps physically strong means alone he doesn't deserve everything and he’s nothing in front of mental strength of women. Be pound of who you are, I ever seen so intelligent girl young as you. You hold great ability and talent, its obvious women with opportunity of education update their statues to higher degree and I’m sure it continues to strength their force in society.

    1. Dear Jeevan,
