Gender Equity is a term that we hear often in today's world. Even though the term is widely popular, still there are societies with man-made boundaries. Gender discrimination which is prevalent from the childhood lets the children grow with a norm of discrimination. Such as Girls must be shy and silent in the public, it’s a woman’s duty to cook and do household works, the woman should always obey a man etc.
The following poem describes the desire of a girl for freedom, as she compares herself with the independence of nature.
On the wooden bars her enchanting aroma
Nails polished in pink as her persona
Adjoining the balcony screen
Leans she towards the green
Closing eyes to relish the slow breeze
Which lets her be in ease.
Some birds chirped “Quick” “Quick”
Fluttering their wings glided back.
The light blue sky was dovish, on it
The chartreuse kites were liberal.
Black horizontal cables crossed the view, on it
Hopped the yellow lined squirrel.
Grey twigs of an aphyllous tree afar, on it
Hopped the sparrow without trouble
Obsessed thoughts of freedom, for it
Druthers the teenage girl in floral.
Forth the traditional constriction
To laugh without restriction
Forth the social blemish
To have someone to cherish
Forth the Gender discrimination
To be a new generation
Forth the male dominance
To be significance.
