वो किसी के ख्वाब का एक हिस्सा थी

वो किसी के ख्वाब का एक हिस्सा थी
किसी को अपने आँचल में छुपाने वाली माँ
किसी के लिए राखी की डोर

ये दिल्ली है
ये सोती नहीं
ये रात भर उन खामोश चीखों को
घुट घुट कर सुनती रहती है
जो शायद हमारी माँ, बहन या दोस्त के
सीने से आती है
जिन पर हर आने वाले घंटे में
एक खरोंच लगती रहती है
जो काफी गहरी है
जो काफी लाल है
जो हर वक़्त ताज़ा होती रहती है

 

Translation:

“She was a slice of someone’s dream”

She was a slice of someone’s dream
The one who hides her love in the corner of her sari
The one who is the holy thread of Rakhi

This is Delhi
It never sleeps
It keeps up late helplessly
Listening to those silent screams
Which, perhaps, comes
From our mother, sister or a friend’s heart
Which bears fresh scratches with every passing hour
The scratches which are deep
The scratches which are blood red
The scratches which remain fresh all the time

#Dedicated to women in Delhi who are unsafe anytime, anywhere…

#Delhi moving bus gang rape
