Outside The Cocoon

#7
Friendships that are abound with extreme mutual respect
and the unsaid promise of having each other's back
Are the ones that are forged while struggling through
government officials, procedures, red tape and paperwork!

The two things that make you want
To be a better person and really try
Are the love of your life, and your child

Dear young woman from a small town,
How come if I happen to judge you on your lesser
educational qualifications (which I don't)
then I'm considered selfish, snobby and arrogant...
And if you judge me on my lesser kitchen powers (which you did)
then you're a proud, self assured and a confident woman??
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I understand why Tharoor
wants to name and honor the girl
but sir, kindly refrain!
For this nation of don't-cares will stand up only when
they see that this brutal treatment
could me meted out to their own daughter
and not just another "name"...

One day as I sat flipping the channels
I learnt something from "Big Boss" astonishing rather
While watching Aseem Trivedi and Sampat Pal bicker
That there are different kinds of courage
And each may not necessarily understand the other

When a crowd of 'otherwise respectable' men
join in when urged by a spineless pervert
To drag and beat a girl, and grope her and almost strip
And the crowd refuses to intervene
While a journalist calls cameras instead of police
Rueben Fernandez and Keenan Santos,
...you are sorely missed!
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The rich having found their power in sophistication
And the poor in their obscenity
I find that I have nowhere to go
