Dowry system

Poem 1. 

By Aakriti Yadav…

A woman is not for buying and selling,

Fie! Rouge man

STOP looking unabashedly towards her

With greedy eyes to fulfill your lust,

Even not betray her trust or

molest with her emotions.

Remember SHE is next to God

A producer, a protector, an embodiment of power

without whom this world can not exist.


So let’s throw away these dowry beggers

from society and provide

real jewel to a bride her dignity.

Poem 2.

By Aakriti Yadav…

Today, my little honey daughter is very sad

reason being dowry demand by a greedy mad;

her parents are helpless,

busy in collecting jewels and money,

 bound to fulfill demands of beggars,

worrying for her future life;

they are bound to do it!

they are bound to do it!


Poem 3.

By Sarojini Naidu…

Is there ought you need that my hands withhold,

Rich gifts of raiment or grain or gold?

Lo! I have flung to the east and the West

Priceless treasures torn from my breast,

And yielded the sons of my stricken womb

To the drum-beats of duty, the sabers of doom.

Gathered like pearls in their alien graves

Silent they sleep by the Persian waves,

Scattered like shells on Egyptian sands,

They lie with pale brows and brave, broken hands,

They are stern like blossoms mown down by chance

On the blood-brown meadows of Flanders and France.

Can we measure the grief of the tears I weep

Or compass the woe of the watch I keep?

Or the pride that thrills thro’ my heart’s despair

And the far sad glorious vision I see

Of the torn red banners of victory?

When the terror and tumult of hate shall cease

And  life be refashioned on anvils of peace,

And your love shall offer memorial thanks

To the comrades who fought in your dauntless ones

Remember the blood of thy martyred sons!
