Bring out the candles and the placards
The sit ins at India Gate or the Rani of Jansi's
Women of India unite
You have nothing to lose but your Patriarchal chains.
They wasted decades in the run up to the Bill
Leth them not now cut it up into a Reservation Pie.
They've stepped up rapes in U P
A minister's niece murdered in A P
Is it to remind us
That men hold up the sky
And women are underneath.
We talk of Arab women debarred from driving
What about the Indian woman's right to Legislate?
