Banaras Hindu University- a legacy in itself. The prestigious university is one of the best giving our country great poets and writers like Harivansh Rai Bachchan, Manu Bhandari. The list is endless. Well, the question today is not of the long legacy it has left or how many gems it has produced. The question today is about the draconian rule of the administrator. Even draconian would have been tolerable, at least it would have been doing something. It would not have been sleeping like a baby and play some pipe dream.
The campus became the talk of the town when the clashes broke out on the campus. Some of the female students of Triveni hostel were protesting against victim shaming. They were doing a sit-in-front of the gate protest. It was reported that on Friday, the protests turned violent when police entered the University premises and started lathi charge. Girls were also abused and beaten during the lathi charge.
The incident that provoked the protest was -when a female student was inappropriately touched by three bike-borne men near the Kala Bhawan within the BHU campus on Thursday. Student beckoned the nearby guard but the guard took no action and same was the response of the hostel warden and proctor. Instead of taking any action they started victim shaming the female student.
I would say only one thing our country loves sleeping and celebrating. That is why this article is being posted today.
She takes care of all,
She makes sure
That she doesn’t make anyone fall.
Her steps are small (literally)
But she makes sure to reach the destination
Goodness in her is her biggest inspiration.
The responsibilities don’t scare her
Always with a sweet smile
You would never see her anger.
One can always seek her for answers.
Accepts everyone with an open heart
She never judges anyone apart.
With a beautiful face
Accompanied with a mind that is smart.

Her heart was shattering,
Due to all the battling.
Her hopes were smattering,
She was tired of all the flattering.
She was tired,
Of all the shots fired.
Everyone she admired,
Turned out to be a liar.
A little care,
A generous stare.
Not anything too fair,
But still, something to stay there.
People thought she’s seeking attention,
But no one really knew her intention.
May be she did want a little attention,
And it wasn’t really her pretension.
So she popped a pill,
And pretended to be ill,
She laid still,
Till she was reduced to nil.
Her smile lights up the world,
but she also makes the best poker face,
She loves participating in every race
And She also believes in winning them too
She is your best contrast-
With a cheerful start and some frightful parts.
She has also broken a lot many hearts.
But it’s not her fault people can’t stay apart.:P
If you know her
you would have always seen her
with a Vikram Seth’s book
reading, sitting in a nook.
I wouldn’t say any more
As she may appear to be an extrovert
But she is an expert
On the being the convert.
There is a girl I know,
But not really though.
She isn’t your stereotype,
And about her-
There’s a much-deserved hype.
The world is her playground.
And if you will meet her,
She makes sure to leave you quite astounding.
She will make your mind go,
Round and round.
‘Care’ is an alien thing for her.
Futile, trivial things,
Usually, don’t matter.
One day a foe,
Another day a friend.
She changes like an everyday trend.
There’s a place in her heart,
Only for a few.
And if you are in it,
You are from a lucky crew.
Now with these sentimental lines,
I bid this poem Adieu.
I think it’s a fair tale to tell
There was a well,
Not too well.
What was in it was,
A hard thing to tell.
It shouted back,
If anyone would yell.
At this well
Bid me farewell.
With that pride of his
Up to the swell.
It was a cold winter night
So my tears turned to gel
So still no one could tell
What was in that well.
I am stranded between the two worlds.
by the thread tugging hard at one and,
pushing me to another.
The shift between isn’t easy.
For wandering in too long in either,
will make one lost.
The strife in this real one,
Is too hard to bear.
So I rush with all my power,
to strive for the other.
Which comes as a children’s dream.
And I fall in the deep slumber,
on a lullabies tune.
My dreams are alive in this one
for I dream in another.
As who knows mine also,
would have been smothered like the others.
