Poetry 2017 Longlist, Jayanta Thokdar

Power of Women

Jayanta Thokdar
The higher and the better, the passion and mission,
Fighting to thriving, making carrier to empower other,
Women have shown many examples in every sphere.

Reached the sky, astronaut Kalpana Chawla,
Swum the Antarctic, Bhakti Sharma,
Climbed the Mount Everest, Arunima Sinha,
Olympian Saina Nehwal and grandmaster Tania Sachdev,
Their passion and determination cherished ourselves.

Arundhati Bhattacharya and Indra Krishnamurthy serve as chairperson
And provide more inclusive growth to the society and the nation.
Made their choice, believe in them, fulfil their goal,
Novelist Rashmi Bansal and Boxing champion Mary Kom.
From fighting for felling of trees by Amrita Devi,
To Medha Patekar’s ‘Narmada Bachao Andolon’,
Convince and aware people for environmental protection.

UP IAS cadre officer B. Chandrakala and Durgasakti Nagpal,
Speak up, fight for right, shown ability not as model but in general.
Political participation, assists, and serves for country,
We got Women leader like Indira Gandhi, Sushma Swaraj and Iron lady.
Deal with stresses, carry social burdens and make unconditional love,
Women both graceful and strong can create, nurture and transform the world.
Self-sufficient and independent, the mother in every home,
Made the family healthy, maintain the standard of living as a whole.

So, people around women –family, friend and relative,
Ensure on women equality, empowerment and justice.
Remove regulatory barriers, religious customs and dominance mentality,
Evolve as a human being, show respect to every women and ensure safety,
It benefits the whole community; most importantly make you feel happy.

To stop violence against women,
Really it needs not only empower the women but also men,
So much what I do is inspiring and empowering them.
