Gauri Lankesh, noted journalist, was shot dead recently in Bengaluru. However, this ode is to her spirit, which lives on in many others.
India, an icon of pluralism
Celebrating the difference
That difference which defined us
Made us unique and beautiful
Why would you pollute that culture?
What an act of bravery
To shoot a woman alone at home!
What an act of utter foolishness
To mute a firebrand woman…
The energy stays sanatan
So will her voice, the sanatan voice
The voice can’t die
Despite the vehemence
A woman with a free voice
Isn’t a decorative piece
She is a seed of fire
The eternal fire of truth
You may shoot her
You may mute her
You may defame her
You may try to tame her
But the more you try,
The more she will grow
The more you cage her
The more she will be out and loud
India is a free democracy
Kali is just another form of Gauri
Residing in every woman
