India’s daughter,

Forever dutiful, loyal and shy

India’s daughter,

Silenced, uneducated and weak

No matter what she does,

The world’s problems are her fault

No matter what she does,

India’s son is always more important

 

Respectful to her family,

Obedient to her father,

Guarded by her brother,

Responsibility of her husband

 

India’s daughter,

Forever dependant

India’s daughter,

Forever inferior

 

She is beaten, raped and left to die

Yet no one sees her pain

She is owned, given and traded

Yet no one hears her pleas

 

No one will give her a voice

Until she learns to fight for it herself

No one is willing to listen

Until she makes them

 

India’s daughter,

Forever guarded, imprisoned, trapped

India’s daughter,

Is finally learning to break free
