In your little black dress,
In your company of male friends,
In your fearless moves,

In you leaving the house at hours abused.
In your independent tours,
In your house of bachelors aloof.
In you and in me , provocation strives.
Yet a one year old is victimized.

Perhaps , the diaper used is wrong for your child. 
Cause provocation never lies in his mind.

  1. Hi Ojha,
    I like your poem but can you please elaborate it a little bit more for me?
    I guess I don’t understand it fully because I’m not a native speaker, but it seems to have a strong message.

    1. Hello Dina,
      Yes the message cannot be understood unless you are a native. The problem with the nation right now is the sickening mentality that juudges girls based on the type of dresses we wear and the time we go out. According to some people, rape a heinous crime can be provoked through women who are liberating. And yet, a one year old child is raped. Hence, the poem.
      Thanks for reading.

      1. Oh, thank you so much for explaining. Great social message!

  2. Powerful and very much on the nose. I like blatant honesty and there’s no sugar coating the message in this. Sometimes grey isn’t good enough and you have to be black and white

    1. Thank you for your words of appreciation. I totally believe in being as honest as the situation demands.

      1. More people with your mind-set and this world might actually become a less mentally oppressed place

        1. I hope it becomes a better place than what it is now. Thanks for your kind words.

  3. Sick people! I was skeptic to put the like … its something to add a hate to … not a like … but these people are sick and need to be put behind locked doors!
    How in heavans name can something like that happen?
    Sad …very sad!

    1. It’s shameful and challenges emotions on a wide scale. The truth is harsh and sad but the motive is to not let humanity die cause of such creatures on earth.

      1. If these people were all closed up … humanity would be a lot better off and very very thankfull … believe me! If not ask all the outher people on this planet … im pretty sure they will agree! Sorry if your not the same opinion! I respect yours … but this is mine! I hope I have not upset you, it wasn’t in my intentions.

        1. I’m of the same opinion. I don’t believe in mercy with people who aren’t human beings. That’s the only perspective and I’m very clear and honest about whatever my opinions are. I just don’t want humanity to die cause of polluting elements.

  4. I can’t think how horrific this is…

  5. Sad truth of our country even a pure and naive soul is being tampered 😞😞

    1. And that haunts!

      1. True thing

  7. Awsm work sweta….it is a sad thing for humanity that we are losing our morals…great writing dear..🙏🙏

    1. Thank you for your kind words of appreciation.

      1. My plzure dear

  8. This is provactive. That is a great thing in my opinion due to the themes/ content you write about. Great post. Very powerful. That quote!

    1. Thank you for your words of appreciation. The aim is same as you describe the post.

  9. seriously i wonder are we heading to doom with all the education and awareness that we are now exposed to !!

    1. The aim should be to educate their minds and not our liberty. 🙂 My perception.

      1. Precisely yes

  10. I’m ashamed to be living in such nation cause of these constant and insanely harsh acts. I mean like how you possibly even consider doing such shit! What’s sickens me more is there’s no stopping to this, nothing concrete enough to overdue such thing. I guess a month back, i heard a similar case were the child was just 3 days old and that’s like the worst news I’ve ever heard of. There’s a only one solution to this, and which will ofc end up in bloodshed. The perpetrators have no right to live whatsoever.

    1. Absolutely my point. It has become a general topic for the natives here whereas this is the most unnatural horrific thing that can ever happen. Generating fear in such terrible minds can only help.

  11. Just wanted to let you know I finally got round to posting about the award you nominated me for – thanks again. I gave you a shout out https://theshimmerwithinher.com/2016/09/22/two-awards-in-one-week/

    1. Yes. It is so animal like to even speak about this though.

      1. I just can’t believe it .. how could someone do that 😬😰

  13. the sad reality.. even it cannot be compared to animals.. they may be much better

    1. Agreed upon. Not even animal like.

    2. Agreed.

  14. sad..the world is really egregious..

    1. It is.

  15. Super words,thats a shameful reality and what more to say one more incident happened at New Delhi in front of thousand eyes where a girl is brutally stabbed 24 times…well! We will have to take active steps against hideous minds with no mercy at all.Strong message with pen.

    1. Another news from Kolkata as well. This is just so sickening.

      1. Thats pathetic & insane..

  16. Very sharp words tearing the bitter reality.

    1. Thank you for your kind words of appreciation.

  17. Our system has started rotting dear and no one is bothered such a shame. Nice post. Heart goes out to the small child. 👍

    1. It is shameful.

  18. You write beautifully.
    I’m enjoying you’re posts.

    1. Thanks a lot for reading and appreciating. 🙂

      1. My pleasure.

  19. Provoked by someone else and the action is taken on someone else. In this case, a one year old child.
    As bad as it may sound, yet its the truth. Well said!

    1. Exactly so.
      Thank you for reading.

  20. […] You will find me speaking of equality, feminism and women always. While I speak of the unjustified world in the posts : ‘A myth so far!‘ and ‘You and I provoke his mind.’ […]
