Tremors of memory - Haiku 'V'


Aghast moments lived
Trembling touch, raped spirit
Tremors of memory


Her fuming rage
Outlet is now open
Volcano of emotions

With India fighting its battle for the deserved justice for women, I hereby take the opportunity to do my bit to spread the message of awareness among the people of the world. 

When a person is raped, the body heals and the pain forgotten with time, but the person is scarred for life mentally. The trauma is more mental, than physical. The helplessness, the fear, the feeling of betrayal by own kith and kin, by fellow people, the lack of humanity, the lack of respect, the feeling of being treated as a use-and-throw toy is damaging, in more ways than one. 

Please understand the gravity of the situation and learn to be humans. There is no place for savages in this world. The cruelty is not tolerable anymore. The pride lies in Being Human, being respectable, being a good citizen, a caring person and not in forcing your man-power over a woman. That's not a symbol of your manly-hood, but a sign of cowardice and shamelessness.

I hope a day comes, when a woman does not have to think twice before making a new guy friend. I'm lucky and thankful for having men in my life who understand these sentiments. And i pray the divine, that every girl in this world feels the same safety as i do, with every other guy in this world!

This Haiku is written for the April A2Z Heights at Haiku Heights. The prompt for today is 'VOLCANO'.

The video is a part of the movement we have started as a part of KnowYourStar for transforming the life of women. Dwar is not just a movement, but as the name itself suggests is The-War against all the social ailments our society is suffering from and needs immediate eradication. This virus has spread to the roots of our society and we need the cooperation of every person living, to help in destroying it.

This particular series of videos in Dwar - Winning Women is a part of our RAPE initiative.
