मेरी बेटी

चलो कोई बात नहीं
अगली बार अच्छा सही
यह तो पराया धन है
सब किस्मत का खेल है

लडकियां कहाँ लड़कों से कम हैं
अब तो सब बराबर है

कब तक
हम चुपचाप सुनेगे
अपनी बेटियों के लिए
ऐसी बातें

कब तब होते रहेंगे
झूठे  दिलासे
झूठी मुबारकें

चाहे तुम न स्वीकार करो

मत करो तुम उसकी तुलना
क्यों बने वो बेटे जैसी
उसे बेटी ही है रहना

नहीं है वो बेटा
पर वो भी मेरा गर्व है
उसमे भी बसते हैं
मेरे प्राण
वो भी मेरा
स्वाभिमान है


  1. eeeewww that was very well said. Me and naveen wished for girl so bad that we didn't get even one and there are people who have all this to say for girls. Its just so sad. naveen's family and mine ...there are all boys, so it was much desired. But Lakshmi just goes to some houses. I am hoping more and more people will read this beautiful poem and try to just Shut Up, if they can't make it better. Naveen still teached both the boys that girls are special. the bond that i have with mom, even if my brother tries, he can never have the same:-) So we r the best..three cheers for girls

  2. Alas!if all the women could have similar thoughts.....Nevertheless lets hope the number of women having such positive thoughts will continue to rise.Amen!

  3. too good ... even i dont understand this .. y do everone say ... meri beti to mere bete jaisi hai... th is a question on the existence of womanhood ...we r girls and we r proud to be girls ...
