Farhan pens poem on Delhi incident

Farhan Akhtar is busy with his upcoming film Bhaag Milkha Bhaag, however the gruesome incident that happened on Sunday night in Delhi angered and dejected the actor to no extent. Joining number of Bollywood personalities who have been voicing their disapproval of the incident, while calling for stricter and swifter laws Farhan expressed his views on twitter.


"Yes we can stoop lower as a people. The Delhi bus gang rape is proof of that. Is justice asleep? I believe swift and severe punishment is the only deterrent. These deviants are not afraid of consequence as it comes too little too late. Everything has a tipping point and r nation just crossed it with the Delhi gangrape case. We demand a new, faster system of justice 4 Rape. The guilty should be treated as terrorists. Just because they target one woman and not a nation, doesn't mean that's not their crime," tweeted Farhan.


In fact Farhan has been so moved by the happenings that apart from tweeting he even penned a poem:


Farhan's poem:


What is this country that I live in?

With no equality

And the quality of life

Differs from husband to wife

Boy to girl, brother to sister

Hey Mister, are you the same?

Contributing to the national shame

Replacing your mothers

With the bent ideology of another's

perception that women have a particular role in society

Fills my heart with anxiety

Where is all of this going?

What will emerge from these seeds that we're sowing?

It makes my head spin

But I'm not giving in

Will keep asking the question

What is this country that I live in?


What is this country that I live in?

That takes away her right to love

Brutalises her with an iron glove

Rapes her without fear

of there being justice for her tear

We've demeaned our goddesses

Gone back on all our promises

Become a gender distorted nation


Given our conscience a permanent vacation

what do I tell my daughter?

That she's growing up to be lamb for the slaughter

we've got to make a change

Reboot, reformat, rearrange,

and never give in

no matter how much our head may spin

Just keep asking the question

What is this country that I live in?

Here to help. Love. Farhan.
