देवी की पूजा और देवी का रेप : We Rape and We Worship the Goddess

This poem is all about hypocrisy in Any society, we worship the goddess in female figure but rape the women too. This poem sketches crime against women in this age and its revolutionary impact which may or may not follow.

Poem in English and Hindi

अपने टुकड़ों को फिर करीने से सजा रही थी
वो बिखरे बिस्तर पर लेटी आंसू बहा रही थी

कसाइयों की आंखों में मांस की बू है
बहुत अच्छी थी हमारी गुड़िया
उसकी मां बता रही थी

देवियों की पूजा भी, रेप भी… ये क्यों होता है।
ऐसे सवालों की चुभन बढ़ती जा रही थी

उसकी डूबती सांसों से सुलगने लगा हर कोई
सुबह तो होनी ही है, रात जा रही थी

International Version

Recollecting her own pieces

She Sat on a bloody Bed

and tears started falling in her Own Silence

She recalls the smell of her half burnt Soul

Her mom recalls smell of new born baby

We worship the goddess, We Rape 

Why is this hypocrisy ?

Acid of Such Questions rained that night

Everybody started simmering

Hope was in air that night
