Are We Really Free?




In the dazzling and flashing light
The chains, that has tied us
Is not visible, saying us free
These chains are social, religious and cultural
Chocking our ears, closing our eyes
We are persuaded with an imposing sigh
That we are free, but, are we free?
Are we not handcuffed by the superstitions, caste
Irrational beliefs and orthodox thoughts?
Are not we crippled by the terrorism
And raped by the corruption?
Have we not lost the stream of reason
In the lifeless barren desert of beliefs?
Are we not hinging our eyes to economical Index
Neglecting the poor, hungry, ailing face ?
Is this the freedom, our fighters fought for?
Is this the tree of democracy
That was irrigated by the blood of our martyrs?
It is easy to be free from visible, by an administration
But what about our thoughts, the thoughts
Which makes us fight for Mandir and Masjid?
Which make us dominate over other caste, other sex?
Are not they results of slavery for centuries?
We need revolution, an intellectual one!
Then only, we can say that we are living in free nation.

It's difficult to be free and get back your true identity after years of being "handcuffed". I'm Polish and for 123 years we didn't exist on map coz Russia, Germany and Austria took our lands, then was 1WW we got back our independence, after 2WW Russia ruled really my country although we had government. now you can all see it! east part of Poland is poor, west is more German... it's difficult to get back to what we had specially with strong corruption my country is facing and lack of ideas how make a change for better...

we need years... we need to wait.
now I don't live in Poland and I don't think I will ever come back.

bisous. deva.

p.s. thank you for stopping by and for leaving such a nice comment!

You are true..
It's really difficult to decondtioned the mind which is conditioned by slavery, injustice and inequality. The deep damage takes time to recover.
But realization that our mind has been damages is utmost essential to recover it..

Cheers!!

Women-Empowerment (A Short Story)

Her spectacle ridden red eyes were trying to run away from the crowd as soon as possible. Every person was looking so alien, so dreadful.  Her heart was pounding so fast, it felt it could come out anytime. She closed her eyes; took a long-breath; chanted a prayer, perhaps to stabilize her trembling soul. But it was of no use. In the high decibel of the noise she had already lost her ability to hear her own words. Somewhere at some meters away she found a corner.  She moved towards the corner with her shuddering legs but alas! Her blurring eyes were proving too difficult to keep open. She fell down and in a few hours she was laying against white bed-sheet in the government hospital. She didn’t know who took her there.  She moved her eyes everywhere to search some known faces. But there was no one. Finally she closed her eyes. So how are you feeling now? She heard a male, soothing yet concerned voice, but not sure if it was for her or someone else. She opened her eyes slightly...As the ima…

Begging Future

Scientists believe that after a certain period especially childhood, our mind does not develop; it just gathers knowledge, makes it experiences and learns new things.Freud, the father of psychology claims that till that age, the way our mind gets shaped; it lasts for our whole life and defines our behaviour and character. So, the important point which I want to draw is that childhood is the most crucial period which decides and defines our future.
To grow a child, is an art, the most beautiful living art of existence. But unfortunately, everyone doesn’t want to reveal his art as they have never felt the joy of this art Or maybe they would have work more prior to this. So their creation is not perfect. A child needs care, love, humbleness, spontaneity; which most of people would be mistaken by fulfilment of economic needs. Well, a good school can substitute the role of parents to an extent but not completely.
In case of India where good schools and perfect parents are a distant fantasy f…

LAKSHMEE- A short story (Guest Post)

Many years have passed since she left this imperfect and unjust world, but still she floats around in my memories time to time. Today I have decided to tell the story of Lakshmee as was perceived through my eyes. Lakshmee was born as a first child in a family which had seen a girl child after two generations. Although a boy would have been more welcome in this case also, Her arrival in this world was tolerated or I dare say welcomed in much better way than many of other girls had in my village. At that time you could guess by the silence and gloom at home that a girls had arrived or by noise of celebration that a boy had been born. A feast was arranged as celebration for her birth which was generally reserved for boys. Her grandfather christened her Lakshmee, consoling his son that she will bring prosperity, material and money as well as many boys to family.
She was a very lovely child with plenty of smiles and comfortable with anyone wishing to carry her in his/her arms. Since she wa…
