ET84 :: For Damini – A tribute in prose!


Ek tamacha logo no1Damini’s incident, her struggle and now her death has moved the entire nation. The anger is unprecedented, has given courage to many other women who have been subjected to such heinous crimes. Ek Tamacha will campaign to keep these fires burning and try and turn the tables to change archaic laws and systems, which do not protect our women. In the name of the brave lady, who has now given us the reason to boil over, instead of just seething under and force to change themes.

On this accord, Ek Tamacha deeply mourns the demise of “Damini”…and as a tribute to her, brings to you yet another thoughtful composition from our contributor (In english letters to assist those who may not know Hindi script):

Dekh Damini is honi ne kya kiya…

Dekh Damini is honi ne kya kiya…
dehshatgard hue,
insaan ko haivan Kiya;
Hosh khoya,
niyat ki kamzor,
Aur shaitan ko chehra diya…
Dekh Damini tere honi ne kya kiya!

Dekh Damini is honi ne kya kiya…
maa behen beti ki izzat,
aur har aanchal ko rula diya;
Jism tera toota,
Kokh teri gayi,
aur soona har aangan kar diya…
Dekh Damini tere honi ne kya kiya!

Dekh Damini is honi ne kya kiya…
Ek raasta khula,
Kai rahen bana gayi;
Jaan tere gayi,
maut teri hui,
Zinda hum sabko kar diya…
Dekh Damini tere honi ne kya kiya!

Dekh Damini is honi ne kya kiya…
Ek kaum ko hausla,
har jan ko nirbhay kiya;
Ek sailab umad pada,
har zulm ko bandhne,
har aurat ko Durga kiya…
Dekh Damini tere honi ne kya kiya!
Dekh Damini tere honi ne kya kiya!!
