Rank 9 Out of 10
2014 is our school’s ‘Golden Jubilee’
We are celebrating it with happiness and glee
Women rising higher with humility
And achieving their true capability
This theme gave us this beautiful chance
In the form of ‘Parivartan’ – a drama and dance
Keen on participation
With fingers crossed we went for audition
Merrily I began to sing
Because I was selected to enact a king
And as we acted and spoke
With our teachers refining the strokes
We earned their praise
Yet I had this feeling of moral malaise
Even in that so cherished Vedic age
Why women were not encouraged?
So many questions on my mind
Was a king not supposed to be just and kind?
Why did it happen in his kingdom?
That nobody used the wisdom
Even the king did not use his foresight
Couldn’t learned Yajnavalkya be polite?
Much I thought
And discussed a lot
Surely, learning is our need
So a lot we must read
Enhanced clarity and awareness
Will overcome all weakness
Deciding on goals
Contributing to the society with a better role
And by maintaining focus
Surely women will shine with success.
