Freedom From Bravery


(A mentally harassed Kashmiri Adolescent Girl)


A Tribute to #asifa, an Eight year old girl who was sexually assaulted for days and murdered in Kashmir

We raise our voice against the proletariat government



A clean clear sky

A valley so high

Showering clouds

Blessing breeze

I was off for school

Back I came

With terror in eyes

They stood on my head

Arguing and interrogating

Insane, bizarre questions

On to which

I resisted

They threw my

Books, bags and packs

My Holy book

Torn into pieces

The ‘code of life’

Was lying dead!

Slowly and gradually

They unfurled the almirah

Took out

Bra, Panty and Pads

My Old Dad stood


They peeled me naked

I shivered

It was so icky

That I was psychotic

They did me nothing

But harassed me mentally

I stood skittish as a bird

The emptous sensuality

I behaved as a tigress

Wanted to

Pelt them with stones


They moved away

But carried away

My chastity,

My clear conscious

My guiltiness

Yes, they rape

Me daily





And Beastly!!
