Prayer for My Daughter..

 

My dear; Come into a world with no whites or black
But a world with pink, blue & green
A world that’s not prejudiced to gender
Where “She” & “He” is equal
Where her learning & liberty is imperative
Where she is neither a possession to be bought
Nor an asset to haggle for -
A place where your dreams are not taken away on tyranny
A world where your life is on your choices
With the choices made by you, not enforced on!
Come into the world where your body & soul belongs to you
Where you are worried only by the goal not the journey
A world that allows you to do mistakes, to learn from them
A world where you fly like a bird persistent & unscathed
Where promises are made to you, not on you
Where your tears are precious & your smile is priceless
Where life keeps turning you to your roles graceful
As you be the daughter to the sister to the companion
To the world so wonderful, to see the world everyday grow old!
 
One of my good friends becomes a mother recently with a baby girl. While congratulating on her big news & talking about the plans she have for her new born, she exclaimed, “I’m worried, every time I’m late from work & my travel alone, will i ever make it home safe? – i can’t think about having my baby, going through those bad experience and worrying all the time about her safety, this place is not safe anymore, you know“ and she went on..!
She belongs to the generation-x which we proudly call; modern, intelligent & carefree, ever ready to do the things she wants – this other side of hers took me by surprise. I wonder, how many people will be there who think like her, I’m sure many –
Are we worried about having a girl child because she is not safe in the current world; Are we really giving the right message to the world, Think it over!!

Looks like in India that is the problem. But I think awareness is the first step to solving anything, and Indians as a nation are at the right path. :)

P.S. I dont know if there is something wrong with the background of your template or perhaps its just not loading right on firefox, it is terribly difficult to read your blog :(

You are only as fascinating as your fascination. Anything and everything you could imagine, is just as real as your imagination; the ability to imagine.

Lovely poem and a question I think most moms would relate too. It holds true for little boys as well as no one is spared.
