RAPE

Yet another Rape incident has shook the entire nation and led to widespread anger and calls for ‘Instant Justice’. The horrific crime where Dr. Priyanka Reddy was brutally raped and charred to death on the outskirts of Hyderabad has brought back the memories of Delhi’s Nirbhaya rape case. When will Enough be Enough and when will this inhumanity end remains to be seen but such cases should not be forgotten and the human life be valued above all instead of just another #Dr.PriyankaReddy.

A heinous crime
unlawful subjugation
abuse of abuses
physical, mental, emotional
spirit trampled
leaving an indelible imprint
of the fear within
the horror haunts for a lifetime

The way she dresses
the way she looks
isn't an invitation to rape her
it's the design of convoluted minds
finding expression
Oh man - look what you've made her go through
if someone had to die
it better be you

Been happening since times immemorial
when will this inhumanity end?
do away with the gag
speak up now
it's a dear life after all
not just another hashtag
