If you see a tigress sleeping quietly in a tree don't be rude and badly behaved, you'll wake her up just be quiet and let her be. She doesn't like the anger - the rape and senseless war has a deep sense of what is fair and mourns the death of kindness and the rise of fear. If you see a tigress sleeping quietly in a tree tread with care for other living beings - don't poke and prod her just let her be. 'Cos if your tread is filled with hate she'll stalk you till the end she's the justice that you can't escape and the light unseen no living being can bend. If you prod the tigress - you with cruelty on your mind you who have lost caring and respect for life and come from a family that doesn't mind. You'd best take care and mend your ways and pay the price you owe else she'll follow you and hunt you down till what you did knocks at your door. You won't escape the justice that the universe bestows and all who support you will feel it too. I've seen it happen and I know. I've seen a sleeping tigress wake up and leave her tree and I know something that we all must learn. That it is always best to live with care and kindness and just let her be.
It’s always upsetting to see crime and cruelty in the world. And even more upsetting to see the attitude that sometimes pervades our legal systems here in India. Please watch this video on a very recent rape case, and make your opinion felt in order to bring change.

I am not affiliated with Mojo Story or any other news channel – just a citizen concerned about attitudes that need to change. The above poem is written to highlight different aspects of rape in our society in a general way. It is not about any particular case.
I have chosen to highlight the IIT Guwahati case as it was the most recent – one of a few that highlight the need for changes in the legal system in India.
