Sankhajit Bhattacharjee Poem 35

Scientific Research Fellow in University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee


A fetus was aborted.

‘It was a male,’ the doctor commented!

Being unable to feed more than one child,

the innocent parents became inhumane and wild.

They did not want to see their aged son

dying out of starvation or suffering from malnutrition.

Here poverty is the killer,

not the biased attitude over gender!
