As I am a staunch supporter of women’s liberation from all the age old inhibitions and shackles esp. forced down on them in this male dominated society, below written  are my true and innermost feelings for Kashmiri Women in praise of their bold move taken against the forces.

Kudos to Desperate Housewives of Kashmir

O’ Kashmiri women,
My salam to you
For now you’ve taken the things into your hands,
Ailing scenario is surely to turn over a new leaf.

That you’ve shed the inhibitions,
And come out of the four walls
To voice your anger and outcry
Is a sure sign of the prestorm
That would curb and uproot
The brutality of the authority
And end your age old subjugation.

After all, who are they to-
Make your life an everlasting tale
Of ordeal and pain
And to take away your every right
To live peacefully in your domain.

O’ brave fighters,
Don’t ever let your spirits down
Just keep yourself moving on.


I know not where am I
Walking in a long tunnel?
Caught in a whirlwind?
I know not where am I

The tunnel seems to be an endless journey
In pursuit of...
What am I to fill in this blank?
Ah! It’s all muddled,
Is it knowledge?
Is it happiness?
Peace or pleasure?

Deadened by the lashes of fate,
I try to see a ray of hope
At the end of that tunnel
And, keep myself pushing ahead.

It is so dark and murky,
And there are snags.
I stumble succumbing to them
Left bleeding and broken.

Then a Hand appears in the dark,
Pulls me to my feet
As a succour to my aid
I get up and keep walking .

I am nearing the end
About to reach the light
Now I am there but
The light has moved far .

Deceived and deprived
Left only to find out that
It was an illusion and then-
I know not where I am.
