She bents on my windowpane with an awful pain

India as a country is definitely growing but the human condition is deteriorating with each passing day. On one hand child labour is the big issue and on the other begging is a menace engulfed in a nexus. I saw this little girl on the eve of Republic Day. She was selling a flag and many more like her were on the roads that day. I saw in her eyes and could not stop myself from penning down my thoughts…. #ChildhoodAtStake

She bents on my windowpane with an awful pain

Her eyes struck mine thinking of some gain

She holds my attention with that innocent face

She bents on my windowpane with an awful pain

I saw shattered dreams, bright future at stake

She is a girl belonging to my tribe

Still I wonder to see her plight

She bents on my windowpane with an awful pain

Scruffy she looked but innocence I spot

Young dreams are precious how vulnerable I fall

Million hopes dying which I see like a stone  

She bents on my windowpane with an awful pain

She loves my country absolutely

My tri colour is giving her hope unconditionally

She is bound to make money, famished she is

She bents on my windowpane with an awful pain

There I sat with questions in my mind

How Republic I am? How Independent she feels?

School is her place but roadside she sleeps

Real her struggle is, tough her life is

I live with dignity, she too has her rights

My country loosing one more talent,

One more hope, one more resource

I wish my windowpane had some hope

One magic wand is all I need

For she deserves to be set free

Not to be bending on my windowpane

For I cant see that awful pain
