508 quotes

You’re a woman who fights for the cause
That short skirts don’t make you a slut, a skank, a whore
You also whisper to your friends
“Look at that behenji in that salwar and kurti.”
You say you fight for women rights and empowerment
Yet a feeble man wears a chudi
And a strong woman depicts “Mardaani”
Of these simple pleasures, you are guilty
All you have is a tinge of harmless hypocrisy.

Harmless hypocrisy You proclaim to the world that you are a voracious reader You only appreciate Harper Lee, Murakami, and Jeffery Archer But in what appears to be the dungeons of your book shelf Chetan Bhagat and Meg Cabot take pride in themselves Of these simple pleasures, you are guilty All you have is a tinge of harmless hypocrisy.                                      You don’t miss a chance to criticize the Indian film industry You hate the singing, the dances, and the cheesy lines of Karan Johar But you are all up for the Leap year and Walk to Remember Rohith Shetty is an idiot for making cars fly Fast and Furious, on the other hand, followed all the laws of gravity Of these simple pleasures, you are guilty All you have is a tinge of harmless hypocrisy.   You’re a man who claims to be a feminist Why wouldn’t you be, you “allow” your wife to go to work You’re a man who loves your sister and mother dearly Yet, the alphabets B, C, and M have a holy seat in your vocabulary Of these simple pleasures, you are guilty All you have is a tinge of harmless hypocrisy.   You’re a woman who fights for the cause That short skirts don’t make you a slut, a skank, a whore You also whisper to your friends “Look at that behenji in that salwar and kurti.” You say you fight for women rights and empowerment Yet a feeble man wears a chudi And a strong woman depicts “Mardaani” Of these simple pleasures, you are guilty All you have is a tinge of harmless hypocrisy. Your nonchalant judgement escalates bit by bit, day after day Your sins reap your soul, your demons hurt us all It might be a scoop of ice-cream on a juice fast Or dropping bomb shells beneath the mask of establishing peace These fifty grays of your hypocrisy Are doing a great job masking the blacks and whites of your bigotry #hypocrisy #guiltypleasures #yqbaba #sowmyaperi
