PARIBHASHIT SANKALP (POEM )

Female foeticide, infanticide is a deliberate killing of a female child. Every year 5,00,000 baby girls are killed in India, even before they step into this world.

Today on Poetic Friday, I dedicate my poem on this above situation because it provokes me, haunts me, disturbs me…

Just a appeal…SAVE THE GIRL CHILD — BETI BACHAO……

Give girls the wings to fly
Not the pain to cry and die….

परिभाषित संकल्प

कहना चाहती थी मै प्रफुल्लित होकर
कह ना सकी मै आतंक में सहमकर,
गुनाहगार की तरह डर-डर कर मैंने कहा
मैं बनने जा रही हुं तीसरी बेटी की मां।

सब तरफ की आवाजें रूलाने लगी मुझे
मजबुरीयों का वास्ता डराने लगी मुझे,
हिम्मत का सैलाब मेरा कहां छुप गया?
मैं बनने जा रही हुं तीसरी बेटी की मां ।

नहीं चाहिये, नहीं चाहिये का शोर
चलता रहा रात भर, हो गया भोर,
पंखे की आवाज से वो रूदन, छुपा कहां
मैं बनने जा रही हुं तीसरी बेटी की मां ।

दुसरों की छोड़ो, तुम तो पिता हो
धिक धिक धिक्कार है तुम्हारे वजूद को,
कायर, कैसे ख्याल आया खुद के अंश को मिटाने का
मैं बनने जा रही हुं तीसरी बेटी की मां ।

तक॔ से तक॔ बढ़ा, अंतहीन बारिश हुआ
सहर में पकड़, दो बेटियों का हाथ, ले तीसरी को साथ,
निकल पड़ी मैं अनजाने मंजिल की तलाश मे न जाने कहां
मैं बनने जा रही हुं तीसरी बेटी की मां ।

मेरे हाथों को थामे, तीन नन्हे जोड़े हाथ
हिम्मत का जुनून लौट आया, पाकर उनका साथ,
नही डरती मैं किसी समाज के ठेकेदारों से यहां
मैं बन गई हुं तीसरी बेटी की मां ।

जब आखों की नदी बह कर सूख जाती हैं
उस उपजाऊ जमीं पर हौसले की खेती होती हैं,
मेरी बेटियां मेरी गुरूर, मेरी रहनुमा
मैं हुं आज तीन बेटीयों की मां।

आज आनन्दित, उल्लासित,  मंत्रमुग्ध, भूल कर सब तिरस्कार
लेते देख रही हुं तीन सव॔श्रेष्ठ डाक्टरों को राष्ट्रपति से पुरस्कार,
तालियों की गड़गड़ाहट के बीच मंच पर है मेरी बेटीयां
मेरी बेटीयां, मेरी बेटीयां, मै हुं उन तीन बेटीयों की मां ।।

  2. Homicide is killing of one person by another, suicide is intentionally causing one’s own death, genocide is deliberate mass killing of any ethnic group, -cide …is an act of killing… feticide is destruction or abortion of fetus, infanticide is crime done by mother killing her own child within one year…female foeticide is destruction of female fetus, which is ascertained after some clinical investigation used for unethical purpose. WE ACTUALLY INDULGE INTO SLOW-HOMICIDE ALONGWITH FOETICIDE. We can’t comprehend the agony of having terminated an attached soul to soul of mother until & unless we experience mothering on our own. Resorting to feticide we are turning into criminals. This actually mellows a woman …….till……BUT THEN SHE RESURRECTS….…jub ankho ki nadi bah kur sookh jaati hae, uss upjaaoo zamee per housle ki kheti hoti hae…….AND ANY AGONY OF THIS SORT NEVER GOES UNHEARD…..IT PAYS YOU FOR WHAT WAS SEEDED WHILE REAPING……………….

    I THINK GOD ERRED BY GIVING UTERUS TO FEMALES ONLY. HE SHOULD HAVE GIVEN IT TO BOTH IRRESPECTIVE OF THE GENITALS WITH WHICH BOTH THE SEXES ARE BORN NOW. He could have engineered our body that way. Arousing us to indulge into copulation for procreation and if it was male getting pregnant then only a boy could have been born & if female was getting pregnant then obviously it should have been a girl, would have certainly cleansed the vice of any such feticide. I think if male dominated society wanted male boys to be born then it was primarily associated with perpetuating a family legacy considering his superiority as far as physical built was concerned or dowry if it was associated with minting. Not finished yet…. & God should have also engineered more excruciating pains for males and the mortality rate for his delivery should have been too less in comparison to females. This would have left males to rethink over having the boy child…AND MELLOW STORM COULD HAVE NEVER THOUGHT OF THIS PLIGHT TO WRITE…..sab taraf ki awaze rulane lagi mujhe, majbooriyo ka waastaa darane lagee mujhe……. This would have altered the sex-ratio commensurately to what society or family desired. It would have been speculative for both the sexes whose gone bear the brunt of carrying after thinking for family way. But since mother is conferred more as a symbol of power then we could have manifested he-mother & she-mother, which could have glorified men for mothering and not just parenting. I THINK GOD ERRED BY GIVING UTERUS TO FEMALES ONLY. BECAUSE SHE HAS BEEN LEFT WITH SPECULATED EXPECTATION OF CARRYING WOMB AND MADE HER STRONG TO RESIST GRIEF YET SCARED OF RAISING A VOICE…gunahgaar ki tarah dar dar kur maene kaha mae banane jaa rahi hu teesri beti ki maa…..THIS IS PUNCHLINE FOR ME.

    FEMALES HAVE BUT EXHIBITED THEIR INTERMINABLE ENDURING TENACITY RELENTLESSLY. THUS GOD HAS NOT ERRED BY MAKING SHE-MOTHER ONLY. FOR ABORTIONS, HORMONES FOR SUSTAINING PREGNANCY ARE IMPAIRED, AND DUE TO THIS LINING OF UTERUS BREAKS DOWN, CERVIX MELLOWS AND ONE MAY BLEED TO DEATH. ALMIGHTY HAS ENGINEERED COURTSHIP FOR COHERENT SOCIETY AS WELL AS FOR PROCREATION, BUT NOT AT COST OF BLEEDING, OR DEFERRED BLEEDING OR INTERMITTENT BLEEDING OR PASSING CLOTS WITH CRAMPING. ABORTIONS CAUSES INCREASED RISKS FOR BREAST, LIVER, OVARIAN AND CERVICAL CANCERS. THIS HAS ALSO BEEN FOUND TO TRIGGER PRE-MATURE BIRTHS; IT CAUSES HIGHER MORTALITY, ENDOMETRIOSIS, HEMATROMETRA, PLAVENTA PREVIA, PELVIC INFLAMMATORY DISEASE AND OTHER PHYSICAL COMPLICATIONS LIKE CERVICAL SHOCK, FAILED ABORTION, RETAINED PRODUCTS OF CONCEPTION, LOWER GENERAL HEALTH AND SEXUAL DYSFUNCTION. ABORTIONS CAN CAUSE FATALITIES DUE TO UTERINE PERFORATION, CERVICAL LACERATIONS, EXCESSIVE BLEEDING, BOWEL & BLADDER INJURY. AFTER ABORTIONS REPEATED ABORTIONS MAY HAPPEN AND MAY ALSO BE THE REASON FOR HANDICAPPED NEWBORNS LATER; OR LATER BE ECTOPIC PREGNANCY WHICH WOULD DECREASE THE FERTILITY. THESE ISSUES DO CAUSE RISK FOR MENTAL HEALTH DISORDERS, THEREBY THROWING THEM INTO ANXIETY, DEPRESSION, EATING DISORDERS, CHILD NEGLECT OR ABUSE, POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER, AND SUICIDAL TENDENCY, PHILANDERING AND SO ON. WOMEN THEREBY BECOME VICTIM OF DOMESTIC VIOLENCE OR HAVE CHRONIC RELATIONSHIP PROBLEMS. THIS IS THE HELL AND DEATH TOGETHER WHERE SHE LIVES TO NURTURE HER CHILDREN. Thus she pays very heavily for such feticide & particularly due to few wicked & mean males who basically are opportunists and selfish giants…dusro ki chhoddo tum to ho pita, dhik dhik dhikkaar hae tumhare wazood ko, kaayur (darpok….bolne ki himmat nahi….qki shiddat nahi…izzat nahi…) kaise khayal aayaa khud k ansh ko mitane ko….I HAVE FELT IT NECESSARY TO WRITE SUCH SIDE EFFECTS SO THAT MALES CAN GET CONVERSANT WITH THE HELL SHE IS LEFT TO LIVE IN.

    SO FAR AS THE POEM GOES, THE HELL & DEATH TOGETHER SHE MIGHT HAVE ENDURED TO LIVE IN WITH FIRST TWO GIRL CHILD…..MAY BE AFTER FEW ABORTIONS TOO, FOLLOWING WHICH INEVITABLE CARRYING OF THIRD GIRL FETUS IN THE WOMB….WOULD HAVE BEEN MORE OF TORTURE THAN EVER BEFORE, THUS IT WAS COURAGEOUS TO HAVE PAVED HER TOWARDS INDEPENDENCY. Words won’t find the place for the recluse & resolution made by such mother who could unshackle herself from society, family & world so that she could sustain & bring up her all girl children with dignity & esteem….meri betiya meri guroor hae – meri ruhnuma, mae hu aaj teen betiyo ki maa……

    POEM has been crafted wizardly to deliver the social message to save the girl child, BUT I THOUGHT TO USE THIS PLATFORM TO DIGRESS from the pith & substance of MELLOW STORM’S poetic wisdom to ACKNOWLEDGE THE SOCIETY, FAMILY, MALES that the gender of what all is to be born is not in our hands…..we should not indulge to plunder the bestowed gifts of nature, else a hell is created in our own paradise….IT’S GOOD THAT INDIAN FEMALES DON’T RUN BERSERK DESPITE SHE ENDURES ALL AGONIES TO BEAR A BOY CHILD…ALSO ITS CHROMOSOMES WHO INVITE A BABY GIRL OR A BABY BOY. HELL MAY BE LIKE AFTER ECTOPIC PREGNANCY MALE IS BLESSED WITH A HANDICAPPED BABY BOY, OR MOTHER DIES AFTER DELIVERING, MALE NEVER GETS HER APPROPRIATE ALLIANCE LATER, OR THE VERY BOY LATER BECOMES WAYWARD, OR THE MOTHER IS LEFT HALF DEAD, PHYSICALLY WEAK AS AN ENTITY BUT NOT AS A HUMAN BEING.

    SO PLEASE WE READERS ALL DO HEREBY DISSEMINATE & EMBRACE THE WISDOM THAT GIRL CHILD IS NOT A CURSE, IT’S A BOON IN DISGUISE…..SO THAT WE DON’T REGRET TO WHAT WAS BORN LATER……else someone may still lament mutely & with pride……AAJ AANUNDIT ULLAASIT MUNTRMUGDH BHOOL KUR SAB TIRISKAAR ………MAE HU UNN TEEN BETIYO KI MAA. SUTAPAAA MAKE UR OWN ANTHOLOGY

  3. Bhhut hi sundar rachna…Dill ko jhakjhor dene waali kavita….Aapne apni bhawanao ka varnan bahut hi sundar dhang se kiya hai …..yah kavita aapke andar chupi hui pratibhawaan kaviytri ko ujagar karti hai….kavita ka ek ek shabd bhavpurn hai , jo is kavita ko marmsparshi bana raha hai…..Log kab tak is tarah ke bhram me uljhe rahenge ki beta hi sab kuch hai….aise mamlo me mahilaaoko hi himmat dikhani hogi ..jaisa ki aapki kavita me bhi darshaya gaya hai…….
    Aap isi prakar sundar rachna likhati rahe….Dhanyawaad….
