Something I typed out some time ago...reposting it here:
"Bebasi Jurm Hai...Hausla Jurm Hai..."
If both weakness and determination is a crime...then, what isn't?
What about strength? Is strength a crime? Not in my world atleast...but I've heard n read quite a bit - words that try hard to prove, minds that struggle to prove that strength is a crime.
Heard of honour killing?
In a way, it's better not heard - but if you've kinda overheard it, you wouldn't be able to chuck it and walk past...like now, you've just read this out here!
So - what do you think is honour killing? Yeah! Right...Killing in the name of honour...restoration of honour thru crime! Amazing isn't it?
Na..na...thr isn't much to worry about...
Coz it's just about taking life to restore a "FAMILY's" honour...it's just about father or brother strangling the daughter/sister to death...or better still burning her alive, coz she loved someone...coz they suspected she loved someone...coz she did somethin that brought shame unto them...
Am happy in my world...in my world honour isn't about takin life...it's about giving it away...
Life doesn't begin n end with honour...but it sustains through humanity.
Will write more about this soon...need to get bak to work for now...
N yeah...just got t remians of those lines...here it goes:
"Ae sanam tere baare mein kuch sooch kar,
Apne baare mein kuch soochna jurm hai;
Bebasi jurm hai...hausla jurm hai..."
