WHISPERS: An Apology To The Delhi Gang Rape Victim

Today, a sad day indeed for the common people, who are feeling helpless and were looking forward to a bigger fight along with the brave heart girl, who fought and fought... Shame on all of us, if we let her fighting spirit die. Let’s all fight to bring back the dignity that India has within, which it lost in a senseless act of lust and drunken criminality of psychopaths...

Here is my "Apology" to her spirit and my pledge not to let memory of her fight, fade and keep the struggle going on till we regain the dignity of Delhi and in turn of India.

Took this picture of the moon, the morning The Brave Heart died.


You "The Brave Heart"
We "The People"
Hide behind "The Cowards"
That every time
We choose to elect
The darkness of shame

But we will not let you go
We will not let you drift apart
From our hearts
We will not forget
And will never forgive
The loss of You "The Brave Heart"

Your fight continues
On every street corner
Within every sensible heart
Within the colours of tears
And pain
Your blood will not dry in vain.

We 'The People"
You "The Brave Heart"
Will bury "The cowards" before you.

 नमः शिवाय
Om Namah Shivaya

  1. Wow, that's a very well penned down poem !! Truly apt

  2. She has gone to place away from crimes... True one...

  3. what a sad situation may she rest in peace @artedoris

  4. It was a shameful act & deserves condemnation that it has attracted.

  5. The best of a man to offer in tribute to some one;

    "I’m Going Home"

    Lord thank you for this life,
    As I have lived a full life,
    It was not always as I would have like,
    But I lived it to the best of what I could,
    I’m going home; Home to the place I want to be,
    I’m going home to Jesus where He waits for me,
    I have been a long weary believer, 
    As I’ve been away to long,
    I now know what I’ve been searching for, 
    As He's been there in me all along,
    I’m going home; Home is the place I want to be,
    I’m going home to Jesus where He waits for me,
    Now I yearn for familiar faces in familiar places,
    I hear familiar voices calling me to come home, 
    I see familiar faces looking at me,
    I’m going home; Home is the place I want to be,
    I’m going home to Jesus where He waits for me,
    My time is near, the hour I know not,
    I have been and seen lots of places in life’s journey,
    I see Jesus' face across the Heaven’s,
    I hear His soft sweet voice calling me home,
     I can’t wait for my real life to begin,
    I’m going home; Home is the place I want to be,
    I’m going home to Jesus where He waits for me.

  6. such a poignant tribute to her spirit sir.. I have been following her fight for survival ever since I came across her story online. Such a woebegone state for such a young woman whose spirit is as strong as the term coined for her. Braveheart. Everyday I would browse for any development, that her fight for her life will improve despite the odds... For one so young and full of promise, her life was cut short by men and in an act inhuman. I cry for her... thinking it could have been me.. A victim in a cruel world where dominance sometimes is measured by one's sex... my prayers for braveheart and to her family who are as victims too.

  7. You have honored her life with such kindness Shashi... we mourn this violent, tragic, senseless rape and murder all around the world...our tears join the river of compassion with yours.

  8. Heartwarming tribute, Shashi. Hope her death was not in vain. Lolapowers

  9. I was right about the tears...yours is not a fight you have to fight alone. This is not a reflection upon your is a reflection on our world and how very lost we have become. I have much trouble with this, imagining, goodness...power to your people and power to our world. She will be forever cemented in our history, your Brave One...and perhaps, as awful and tragic this was, the change her short life inspired will travel the globe. A brave and compassionate write...and yes...I need a box of tissues!

  10. it is so sad what is happening in your country man...its a brutal thing...and so sad....why is it we let this happen? we are the same with our guns killing in a sense...why is it we let this happen?

  11. Such a tragedy, my heart aches for her family. So much violence in this world, when will it ever end? Your poem and your photo pay lovely homage and tribute to this young woman, so undeserving of such a crime.

  12. A touching tribute to a terrible tragedy. I hope her death helps change the way things are. A beautiful write :)

  13. I have read about her tragic death with much sorrow.

    But the fact that you, a man (like the others) are moved by this incident and will keep her memory alive gives me hope that women will be finally regarded with value and esteem ~

    All the best ~

  14. Amazing piece Shashi. Terrible events, very touching your words deliver. Thanks for sharing.
