I AM A HU(WO)MAN-ISHA JAIN BALLB 2011

women-fistI am a Woman,

I want to wear a saree, a colorful saree,

Full of all bright colours, making my life bright,

Where I am happy in the world of equals,

I am equal to my brother, my husband.

I want to wear bangles,

That do not set my limits, but motivate me to go farther.

I want to have long hair,

A long education life as my brother has, or may be more than that.

I want to wear lipstick like a modern woman,

Not to be seen with pity, but with proud.

                                                                   I am a woman, and I want to be treated like a human.
