Public Space for Half the Race

How Indian Women Are Reclaiming public space
How safe is a space?
Safe for half the race
Right to equal opportunity
Life full of honor and dignity
Real question remain unanswered
Girls and women got warned
For centuries women remained confined
Within the boundaries of home
New limit got defined
Year after year, every time
Return home by evening
Freedom defined by time
Confinement enforced by crime
Safety and security of public space
Result of good governance
And proper duty of police
A dream yet unrealized
Impartial law and order
Execution without malice
Deterrent law enforcement
True commitment of government
Speedy trial and court martial
Wholehearted efforts not partial
Define your own space
With development, keep pace
Arise awake and run to win the race
