The following poem is the contemporary take on the poem “where the mind is without fear” by Rabindranath Tagore.

Where women are without fear and roam free

Where equality is not a mere dream

Where the humans have not turned into beasts

By the narrow male delight

Where words like consent and No doesn’t equal to silence

Where humanity and acceptance of difference has not lost their existence

Where the justice has not lost its way

Into the protection of the heinous perpetrators

Where the development is led by compassion

And the government is not blinded by the electoral politics

Into that secure country not in mine, my father, let the females born and live.
