I was a child, young and naive
I didn't know all the complexities of life.
I got the attention, I got the love
I got the right values
And the right lessons above all.
“Why you’re shouting? You’re a girl”
“Why you’re not in the house to help your folks?”
“Why you’re playing with boys and not with needles?”
“And why you’re wearing those clothes so short?”
I heard all this and laughed out loud
Are you insane, is what came out of my mouth!
“You are studying so that you can teach your children,
And not because, you’ll be working somewhere
Don’t give me those stern looks,
Or without any doubt, you’ll be in despair!”
“Now you listen to me, once and for all,
I'm not your puppet, who will dance on your call.
I’ll do what my heart says
And dwell where my mind stays.
I’ll cease this orthodox approach
And be liberal in my own ways.
For I respect one’s views and
Accept the way it should be put to good use!
It’s not my business, if the girl next door dates other girl
I don’t care, if that guy is partying all night,
I don’t mind if it’s a live-in or an inter-caste marriage
As long as it is not destroying my surroundings!”
Its one’s free will
And the rest should chill
If you want to chip in something
