Unees se bees,
So what?,another year
you may say.
And I will invite you over a cup of chai,
and tell you what made us slay.
Self-care was the word of year,
Pilate, yoga, diet,
We did everything to take care.
Sabyasachi made us fall in love with size plus ‘
Nandita das reminded us that India’s got the colour.
Still we failed In listening to voice of the one we loved,
We didn’t hear them well,
Depression, loneliness conquered. When Pulwama , the deadliest attacked stirred the people,
Abhinandan Varthaman’s courage was greeted by Nation.
And then there was another story in making. Article 370 got scrapped and history was created. Jammu and Kashmir as a union territory was born Some loved some hated
but a landmark was created with dawn.
Chandrayaan 2 was launched by ISRO,
we cheered, hold our breathe
when we lost the communication.
But with all our heart, we celebrated the achievement.
Another year, another decade,
Metoo campaigns, flags of feminism, gender equality, we raised.
Pepper spray, self-defense
Everything we tried
still we were robbed
We were erased for we demanded our rights
Nirbhaya Priyanka, Unnao
Countless incidents triggered a nationwide uproar,
Still nothing could control malevolent.
And just when we thought it’s a closure,
we are at the beginning of new year,
Stage strikes, vehicles on fire, blocked street,
Youngsters in clashes,
CAB, CAA divided the nation.
And you Say it’s just another year,
Let’s meet over a cup of chai & welcome the coming year.
With new hopes,
Fresh start. How was your year gone by? Do you reflect back or take in stride as it comeLooking forward to know your side of story.
