Yesterday, we celebrated Bhai Dhuj, a festival today marks the end of festival season.
On this day, millions of sisters in India, give respect to their brothers by putting a tilak’* on their head. And brothers in turn pledge to protect their sisters from any harm.
With increasing incidents of crime against women in the cities, I plan to do something new
Wrote a poem
On the eve of this Bhai Dhuj
I plan to step in a new shoe
On this day
Brothers pledge to protect their sisters
From any danger , rapist or molesters
But what happens if we are not near them
Then, who is to be blame
To truly protect our sisters
We must make them self sufficient
Against any rapist or molesters
So this gift for these lovely ladies
To give them lots of blisters.
And then, gifted her a pepper spray to protect herself.
Rather then gifting just money, isn’t something that really protects your sisters is better. Think about it!
Thanks for reading
