I want to burn all those books which give us knowledge
and paint the faces of their writers with its ashes.
The things I was taught from those books were all wrong
because my society says so
and I believe the society says no lies.
An old woman is beaten in the guilt of being a witch,
yes, she should be.
In the name of dowry, the newly married girl is robbed,
she deserves it.
If your son brings a lower caste girl,
they should be kicked out.
Those writers are so immoral
who tried to teach us from middle school
that these things are wrong
and we, as students used to put neat covers in those books
studying in one of the most expensive boarding schools of the city.
Why read those books?
why send your children to learn those lies
when you know that those things are just socially unacceptable?
From tomorrow onwards, don’t go to schools
where you are taught things
that are deemed illicit by the society
instead go and be a potter
at least you’ll earn some money for your family.
