For Damini – A tribute in prose (English Script for ease of reading)


In English Script for the ease of reading!! Not a translation of the poem!!

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!!
