Pure Gentle Soothing !
This is a heart wrenching plea you have expressed! Tragic to be unwanted!Youngling
Yes it is, we must conciously stop this practice.
Little childyou are preciousHarsh customs to die
We have to become more sensitive to women child issues.
Female foeticide is rampant in many parts of the country. Something needs to be done to change the mind-set of the patriarchal society.
Yes a lot of things ranging from ethical and moral education, sensitization and clarifying the wrong customs, practices, prejudices etc.We need to shun retrograde practices through arguments at public forum and awareness campaigns.
Thanks for speaking up with your poem for social change. Poets, writers and artists can take leadership roles with their strong voices. Well done.
Thank you Alice for appreciating the point, awareness about issues is the first step.
A cultural practice that seems so hard to break! A poignant, challenging haiku!
yes it is hard but not impossible with concerted efforts!
Well expressed! Writing about such injustice is vital to change.
Sure it is. thanx
its heart rending to hear about female foeticide,its still rampant though....speaks a lot about the patriarchal mindset of our country
Yes Sasmit, definitely a lot needs to be changed starting through mindset.
Amazing.....Truly Heart touching and Thought provoking.
Thank you Tejinder.
touching. Hope poets, writers take their part of responsibility to raise awareness.
Yes Neelam we have to rise against this evil.
Ah! soul stirring and full of emotions.
yes it shoul stir the nation in the same way!
so aptly said .. :)
It should have been father instead...Most of the times such decisions are not taken by mother...She is only forced to do so
Yes but sometimes it is the family pressure, what you are saying is truly understable, but by saying mother i was raking the emotions towards an innocent girl yet to be born so put the word Mother.Ya obviously no mother wants to do that, but she is forced.
Correct,'younglinghood' turns to adulthood due to parents' ego.
Want of a male child, this ego!
very expressive on a social issue...gud goin
So heart touching with a message...
well.. ur awesome selection of words .. well placed, to bring about a sense of remorse .. make me realize.. its womankind which is its biggest enemy !!
Humankind as a whole is the enemy of woman, but i am not generalizing.
sad it is
That is so.
Strong message here in a beautiful verse. Well done.
Thank u Tiger bite!
This is heartbreaking - some truths often are. I like it when a Haiku portrays social ills in our different communities - A great way to bring attention to the issue and generate debate
Yes Adura, you are very right, thanx for the support and appreciation.Your haiku always does that and it is commendable!
A tragedy that can and should be prevented
Yes definitely it should be!
It's a disturbing topic. Thank you for airing this in your poetry. You say it well, in so few lines. We all need reminding!
