EDUCATE YOUR GIRL....

SOMEWHERE IN INDIA

A girl is denied a privilege that should have been her right

Chained down by society, unable to take flight

Try as she might, she puts up a fight

JUST TO LEARN HOW TO READ AND WRITE

SOMEWHERE IN INDIA


A six year old doesn’t know she’s being wronged.

When I was six years old, when I saw my smiling brother, backpack in one hand and a little pencil case in the other. He took a little yellow bus to a place that opened his mind.

He was capable and it was worth spending money and getting him an education, the best kind.

Take my word for it, she is equally capable.

She could help out in other ways, maybe clean the house or work as a house help. That job is payable.


She is capable of so much more, just open up a door.

SOMEWHERE IN INDIA

A boy is made to think he is superior just because a girl was never given an opportunity

When I was 15 I realised that he is a boy, He is strong and intelligent and can earn money.

I can too what I want. I received a good education and so am capable of living a better life

He will get a good job while I put all my work into cleaning households or being a good wife

Is this what you want, to waste her intelligence on useless things just because we didn’t give her a chance?


SOMEWHERE IN INDIA

A girl is denied her right to make a decision.

I was married at 22 to some boy I didn’t know

I was given admission in a college and I could see just how far I would go,

I was too much of a burden to bear, and my parents had no money to spare

My education was looked after with utmost devotion and care

Do you really think she couldn’t do better

SHE COULD GO TO LENGTHS YOU COULDN’T MEASURE

SOMEWHERE IN INDIA


A girl is not even given a chance

It was a girl, so we decided to abandon the child

But when a boy was born, you should’ve seen how they smiled

I deserved a chance didn’t I?

SOMEWHERE IN INDIA


We should build up her confidence, she’s fought a long war

You’re just as good as me, if not more

You are a blessing in disguise

I am capable and only you can tell me otherwise.

BUT EVEN THEN

I might not chose to believe you

SUPPORT GIRLS EDUCATION

SAVE NOT ONLY A CHILD, BUT AN ENTIRE NATION.
