"SHE WOULD HAVE NEVER GONE QUIETLY Her death is another addition to those numerous mysterious high profile death cases which either remain unsolved or are manipulated and finally suppressed over the time. Thanks to corruption and of course the Media! In such a scenario, would justice ever come to such women? And as far as the current scenario is concerned..it may sound pessimistic but well there is no sign of justice coming any day soon for these women. It's all power play - sad but true ! Justice delayed is justice denied! If the government instructs, police implements and the witnesses and public don't fear. it would but then all this requires the much needed support n voice of the youth, being an active participant in the politics and knowing about our country and its constitution.

Just another phase of life When all goes smooth, and you are living high, the least you expect, is the heaven's cry: 'Thou life's a malediction, a cauldron of sorrows, happiness, a prose, and living, a desire.' It calls you off the delusion, wakes you up by a percussion, the voice grows strong, swipes away the throng, bruises your dreams and assures life is no whims..

IT HAS BEEN LONG.... It has been long since that day That day, when I lost my way, wandering through the darkness, all weary, with eyes red and teary. I was innocent, with an angelic face, my life revolved around frocks, with frills and lace. Through the darkness, I saw you. But there was a difference. You were not the one I dotted, 'DANGER', my heart shouted. I never knew, the hand that used to bless, would make my life such a mess! He acted strange, I responded with rage. I wished it to be a nightmare, Not knowing, what to do, when and where. He took all that that he claimed, 'POOR CHILD', the world exclaimed. Years have passed since that day, living in a world not knowing my way, They whisper and stare without any heed, acting unknown of the fact, that I shall bleed. For a mistake not mine, I shall pay, Everything is the same, so is everyday. I cry, I whine, I bleed, knowing well that I am out of breed. As I go through my frills and laces, I remind myself of those faces, Who took from me....... everything, leaving me with nothing! I live... as a girl, a victim, a survivor, walking through the tear filled river. People show sympathy, But i dont want any. In my world, I live alone, Signs of future... all gone. As a victim, I prod Even in a crowd, all alone. Its been long since that day, The day, when I lost my way! -Athira Menon B.Tech Food Technology Ist Year
