GIRL EDUCATION

Girl Education Poem by Himanshi Wadhwa

SUNO SUNO SUNO SUNO SUNO

AAJ SUNAU EK KAHAANI

NA KOI RAJA NA KOI RANI

BAAT NHI HAI BAHUT PURANI

PAR DUNIYA ISSE ANJAANI

HARA BHARA EK GAON HAI CHOTA

JISME REHTI MEENA MERI POTI RAJU MERA POTA AUR SATH ME REHTI UNKI AMMA

JO BATON ME BADI SIYANI

MEENA GHAR KE KAAM NIPTA KAR

FIR BHARTI WELL SE PAANI

CLEANING THE YARD AND LIGHTING THE STOVE

PLUCKING THE MANGOES FROM THE GROVE

FEEDING THE CHICKENS CHANGING THE LINEN

EVERY WORK SHE DID WITH PERFECTION

PAR EK CHEEZ KI KAMI THI USME AUR WO THI EDUCATION

GOVERNMENT HAD MADE A RULE

THAT EVERY VILLAGE WILL HAVE A SCHOOL

SCHOOL KHULA THA GAON ME

PEEPAL KI CHAON ME

DAUR DAUR KAR BACCHE AATE

SEEKH NAYI NIT LEKE JAATE

PAR POOR MEENA AND MANY OTHER GIRLS OF THE VILLAGE

WERE NOT SENT TO SCHOOL AND DEPRIVED OF THE PREVILIDGE

THERE WAS AN ANNOUNCEMENT THAT TOLD THE GOLDEN RULE

BETA HO YA BETI SEND THEM TO SCHOOL

LADKI AUR SCHOOL

ARE THEY A FOOL

LADKI KARE AGAR PADAI

KAUN KREGA SAAF SAFAI

KHANA KAUN BANAEGA

BISTAR KAUN BICHAEGA

PADH LIKH KAR KYA KHAAKH KAREGI

KAAM SEEKHEGI RAAJ KAREGI

BAAT SAYAANI MAAN KAR

SAB MIL GHAR KA KAAM KAR

BHEJA MEENA KO BHI SCHOOL

AUR SUDHARI APNI BHOOL

MEENA WAS EXCITED

HAPPY AND DELITED

GO TO SCHOOL GO TO SCHOOL

GOD BLESS THE GOLDEN RULE

INTELLIGENT AND SMART

MEENA SOON WON EVERYONE’S HEART

AND CLEARLY UNDERSTOOD

WHAT WAS BAD AND WHAT WAS GOOD

SHIKSHA KI HO JAI JAI KAAR

GHAR GHAR USNE KIYA PRACHAR

KHARE KHOT KA FARAK BATAYA

SHIKSHA KA MATLAB SAMJHAYA

AUR TABHI EK DIN RAJU PADHA BEEMAR THA

KHOOB TEZ BUKHAAR THA

MAA AUR DAADI THI GHABRAYI

KAISI AAFAT THI YE AAYI

IDHAR UDHAR NAZREN DAURAYI

DIKHI UNHE FIR EK DAWAI

PAR YE KYA

MARZ EK THA BOTTLE CHAR

ANPAD MAA AB THI LAACHAR

SEEING THE LITTLE FELLOW

BUT SHE REMEMBERED THAT THE BOTTLE WAS YELLOW

BUT WHAT TO DO WHAT TO DO

YELLOW BOTTLES WERE ALSO TWO

THIS OR THAT THIS OR THAT

HELPLESNESS MADE MAA SAD

LIKHE THE UNPAR KUCH AKSHAR

PAR MAA AUR DAADI NIPADH NIRAKSHAR

MAA JI KYA AAPKO HAI PATA?

KAUNSI HAI YE DAWA?

NAA BABA NA

PADHI LIKHI MAIN KHA

AFTER A STRUGGLE

MA PICKED UP A BOTTLE

ABOUT TO PUT IN RAJU’S MOUTH

SHE HEARD MEENA SHOUT:

WAIT MA WHAT IS THIS MA

YOU ARE GIVING RAJU PEST MAARNE KI DAWA

OH GOD GREAT CONFUSION

POISON IN PLACE OF MEDICINE

BECHAARI MAA AB THI AGYAAN

ANJAANE ME LAADLE KI LE HI LI THI USNE JAAN

ISLIYE TO KHA HAI

PADHNA LIKHNA SIKHO

O MEHNAT KRNE WALO

MEENA KI PADHAI PAR SABKO HUA ABHIMAN

PADH LIKH BETI NE HI BACHAYI THI BETE KI JAAN

EDUCATE THE DAUGHTER

FILL THE HOME WITH LAUGHTER

SHE’LL LIVE HER LIFE HAPPILY

AND EDUCATE HER FAMILY…
