A Robbed Soul



Crawling shadows

past blinking lights

Talking hands

shouting eyes

Skin beneath

window pane

pale and bleak

Few sobs buried

under display

Make up of

fake giggles

One more night

one more death

Prostitution is considered as world's oldest profession/business. Yet there are no rules, no laws, no hearings and no answers to certain questions.....

well abt prostitution,you just need to go out and see,there are many organizations working for this cause and yes ,they are heard many times.you might want to explore them.

but the core issue is WhY!

is it just the skewed ratio or is there more to it?

Hope said...

No girl is born prostitute..like no criminal is born criminal but Indian siciety donot accept prostitutes to be respected, what ever the reason the girl, her innocence, her dreams all die the day she is robbed first...she is not robbed physically, but her soul is raped....then the morning she decides now she will rule this world, and ....the story starts..This seems to be a story but is a bitter reality...

Hope: Thanks :)

Gonecase said...

Geet: Thanks and welcome :)
And abt organizations, well, the truth is not what they show on TV or claim in media, its very different. Ofcourse respect is very necessary but it matters only when you have the food to sustain yourself.

Its not only with Indian Society, its same everywhere.

Gonecase said...

Dekha !! Maine to bola hi hai tujhe....tu mujhe Medha Patkar in the making lag rahi hai...kam se kam baatein to waisi hi karne lag gayi hai :P

hmmm...moving
i wish maggi was as delicious as your two minute poems :)

geet said...

na na... i dont believe in media unless i am very sure. i was working for this cause for sometime and had interacted with some.

and even to sustain themselves ,they have to go out in the world where they dont get any respect but get humiliated.and all they ask "give us respect" which will help them to look out for other possibilities to help them live (i should say live happily)

Rashi said...

hmm nice and thoughtful...

Gonecase said...

Umang:
Ye kya bol rahi hai, maggi to bahut sahi hoti hai...waise thanks :)

Gonecase said...

Geet:
Hey, that's great. And as far as I know, there is a lot of physical torture involved as well, not only by the hands of customers but by their own pimps/madams.
