Yearning to unite with her profound love
She nurtured the dreams of a world full of
love,happiness and her sweet family.
A woman with strong will power,Aruna
aspired to reach the highest pedestal.
But destiny had a crooked plan, on
the gruesome night of Nov 27th 1973
her cards of luck were burned down to ashes.
When Sohanlal Walmiki’s,turned a devil,
chocked Aruna ,the little angel in white,
by a dog chain,sodomized,burgled and
left in a pool of blood to die unnoticed.
No medicine nor God brought her back to
normal life,as was paralyzed below neck,
lost her vision permanently,lived 42 years
of a precious life in a vegetative state.
Abandoned by her eternal love and relatives.
Conceded as a captive since that night of tragedy.
The culprit escaped by 14 years of imprisonment
without any charges of rape or attempted murder.
Shame on judiciary that no records of the criminal
was maintained,thus he enjoying a normal life in the
suburbs of the capital city in peace disguised as a sheep.
Every second of her life was a torture,awaiting for
help by two to turn,to get fed,washed or dressed in
bed ,her body locked down slowly,her hands and legs
contracted ,nails dug into both palms,still in agony
at times she smiled, staring into vacant space vaguely.
Suffered each day for 42 years to leave that crippled body.
Eventually,mercy was bestowed by the nature
relieving from her grave agony of being a prisoner
in her own body,but Aruna’s life bought the gift of
passive euthanasia to those with chronic ailment.
Was justice given to her by the law or god ?
I smile in tearful eyes to hear her demise,praying
no one should get a life like her anymore.
( My tribute to Aruna Shanbaug ,who suffered 42 years in darkness, paralyzed and muted in a vegetative state.Eventually, many people will get justice unlike Aruna as passive euthanasia is legal now in India.Hope one day the moronic male chauvinist of India will see women with respect not as a toy.).
