That morning I thought will bring a smile on my face with new hopes and more security in life but front news of Bangalore Molestation on New Year eve not only put again a question mark on the security of girls but also shook me from inside.

While we ( me and my hubby ) was discussing the same my 8-year-old little princess hopped in between of discussion and asked ” Why mummy, why u saying u are scared for me ?” left me speechless…. and I just thought how many questions and unwanted pain she must be going through thinking these questions and then I put myself in her shoes and wrote this small poem from her point of view.

I am just eight

 But have few questions to raise,

Mom is not allowing me to go out and play

She says “FOR Girls it’s not safe”

Why Only for girls it’s not safe?

Why brother can still go out and play?

 I told mom , some uncle gave me sweets and talked to me nicely

She followed me and scolded uncle too

Now he does not come n give me sweets

 But I saw him teasing some didi on the street

 Dad & mom all are upset with some Bangalore New Year news,

Mom kept on saying she is scared for me , she loves me

Still why she said this I have no CLUE,

I want to ask my lovely teachers in school Who guide me ? show me right way….to move

 Why mom is only scared for me?

Why brother is allowed to play out but not me?

 Why mom stops me to get drenched in rain?

Questions are many and giving me pain Please answer me teacher and take me out of this pain !!

I still don’t know what to answer my little girl and how to explain to her that she is right,image it’s just some sick mind people making this world unsafe for her.
