Uddne do (Let her fly) – Kinjal Parekh

(​Note : This poem is on feminism and is in ‘Hindi’.)

_____________________________

Jiss ghar me hoti rehi be-izzati usski,
na jane kyu phir bhi vo vahi rahi.
Kya hoga iss chidiya ka me sochu,
jo pankh lagne ke pehle hi
apne pinjre se hakaal di gai.

Haan vohi chidiya jo parai hui nahi thi,
par parai kar di gai.
Socha bohut iss baar ussne bhi,
key, kar le samjhauta roshni se,
ke tuut jae vo kahi..saweree se.
Lekin insaan thi vo bhi fitraat  se,
samjhauta kar liya ussne phir,
par iss baar
khud se nahi…
Haatalo se.

-Kinjal Parekh
