Save The Girl Child!-The ISBF Gazette_Issue V

Posted on April 10, 2014 by Chitraxee Munjal  | Blog | Teaching

Her birth was unwanted because she was a female Granny wanted her dead but she dint want to go to jail No celebrations in the family, no baby shower Just cursing God over and over, hour after hour She was born on the 13th, an unlucky date Disappointed family cursing their fate Her parents soon forgot and she was loved After all, she was their flesh and blood She was a blessing, perfect at everything She could study, dance as well as sing But her granny still longed for a grandson As she demanded, so it was done Granny clutched the boy in her hand, a tight hold The parents were gifted with loads and loads of gold Granny was happy, a heart without a hole Parents loved both their children, with their heart and soul She didn't understand why he always got the bigger piece of cake Dint know why his toys she could never take As she grew, she started to realize 'Cause the whole picture played right before her eyes She did his project work while he went to play He demanded food and she served him on a tray She silently protested for her dignity and pride Her mother would shun her, so she had to hide Her feelings and the rules she had to abide The brother also realized he had an advantage So if things went her way, he'd burst out with rage He could hit her, but she couldn't hit him back He'd hit her so hard sometimes, that her bones would crack She knew protesting wouldn't help,  she would silently cry Failed in all her attempts to die "This is so unfair" she always thought But forgave everyone soon, 'cause she loved them all a lot Now she's an adult, studying in another city Her head held high with pride and dignity Remembering the bruises on her flawless skin, unnoticed "God, help me forgive them all" she always wished Back home things were not the same anymore Nobody served father water and did brother's project like before Nobody ironed father's clothes and helped mother do her make-up Brother now had to go to the kitchen to keep his empty milk cup This is not just her story, this happens all around Parents draw the curtains, but outsiders can still hear the sound Such memories, she doesn't remember the last time she smiled Stop all this, Save the girl child!
