“The old order changeth,
yielding place to new”.
There sure are practices to change –
Dowry, corruption, and casteism – to name a few.

I believe in abolishing them –
and I know, so do you.

Come, join me, let’s
change the rotting order –
mustn’t we first fight the enemy within
and then watch our borders?

Be awry of taking Dowry,
do not crib for bribes;
we all are born, and die the same –
what’s this about clans and tribes?

Nothing’s more shameful than
husbands selling for cash and kind –
people killing, and being killed –
are we really out of our minds?
