Requiem To India's Shamed, Departed Daughter   Posted on Dec 29, 2012    Comments ()

Oh belittled bit of

India’s injured female conscience!

Adieu!

 

Some Satanic characters

Born amidst us

Invaded

Your private honour publicly

 

Humiliated

Injured

Mutilated

Maimed

You physically

 

And

Derived vicarious

Vicious

Vile

Violent

Wicked

Pleasure

And then flung you

As a deflowered bud

To gather dust

In a cold

Dusty

Lifeless

Blackened street

In India's rape capital

 

The seemingly endless

Buck passing began

 

We rushed to help

Yelped the police

 

The darkened

Curtained

Bus windows will vanish

Yelled bureaucrats

As if it matters now

 

The guilty will be punished

Crowed politicians

 

A sizeable number

Of their ilk

Heartlessly found

Youth outraged at the outrage

Guilty of being

Presentably manicured

 

Some schmucks

Abused other

Hurt sisters

Callously calling them

Commercial sex workers

 

Some accused

Your guileless innocence

Of climbing into an unchartered bus

As the root of your guilt

 

Others faulted

The sinister official system

Created by cussed colonial crooks

Loaded in their favour

Only to cite helplessness

 

The perpetrators

Pretended to voluntarily invite

Death penalty upon themselves

For their heinous crime

As though its multiples were committed

Inadvertently

But

Used bent cops to twist your deposition

 

The moving

Four wheeled

Fuel-driven

Fiend piloted leviathan of crime

Was never impounded

Its owner

Is still left untouched

 

Shame!

 

Now

Little One

You are

Possibly

In The Almighty’s comforting pram

 

Perhaps

That piece of your hurt soul

Is being offered solace

By the much needed

Divine healing touch

 

So what about

The infinitely angry ‘us’

 

I ask the heartless

Inhuman governing bodies

Of India’s rape capital

 

Criminally cohabiting

Collaborating

And

Being in cahoots

With those who

Mar

Maim

Molest

Maraud

Murder

 

Our mothers land sisters

Akin to you

 

Criminals!

No matter how you try

To withstand

This nation’s curse

Echoed from the heavens

By that little one

With your ill-gotten stinking wealth

Your despicable power

Your atrocious authority

You shall perish

And shall be condemned to

Eternal damnation

Jezebels!

Fie on you!

Fie on you!

Fie on you!

18 tribal woman were raped by Tamil Nadu Govt. Officers in Vachathi in Dharmapuri district in 1992. Initially TN State Govt did not even accept the case. It was with the intervention of High Court and Human Rights Commission that the case was registered. CBI investigated the case. Lower court gave verdict as guilty but hardly any of the so called national media even gave importance to the case.
