On your way back home after a beautiful evening

, you saw hell.

hell which broke out on you, hell which crushed your being.

the humanity which ceased to exist when the brutes fed on you!

cruel consanguinity of beastility and sadism,

your perpetretors - representatives ­ of the generic crowd around.

products of centuries old idealogy, methodicaly fed to our menfolk !

woman, the submissive inferior, a land to be conquered,

An adorning mantle piece to be protected, to be raped,

to be grobed, to be felt, to be violated..

There are many dear sister, who blame it you !

your choices,

your liberty,your "audacity" in stepping out at night !

all of these, YOUR sins.

Its a nation of hypocrites !

Aadi- Shakti the cosmic feminine power,

the root and start of all that existed is worshipped by men.

The same men who ripped you apart,

yes the same ones who irrevocably burn women in chauvinism !

The world did end my friend.

It happened much ago when humanity was buried alive !

The DEATH of humanity !
