"She the refuge, peaceful and merciful undoubtedly,
She pervades over all, is universal form certainly,
Her lotus feet worshipped by universe – all Glory,
On your appeal “Protect me Durga” saves entirely..."
Durga,The Goddess, epitomises the strength of a Woman and the one who saves the Humanity from all the crimes and savages and restores peace and order in the Universal being of Life.
And ironic is the fact that our Goddess whom we celebrate is now in a perennial threat.Threat of existence! From the very same society and civilisation whom She had been urged and prayed to protect.
The dichotomy of the society is that it celebrates Her as a Supreme Celestial Being and on the other hand kills Her human form in the foetus. Rape Her dignity.Plunder Her as a loot.
When will the Durgas breathing alive will be celebrated as Women and not as Celestial Being ? When will we stop violence against them ? When will we start accepting Them as our Comrade at Arms and give back their dues ?
Durgas don't need our patronage and prayers.They need us to live them alone and decide their own destiny. And when we learn to do that I am sure the celebrations will begin and we as a Human race will have another chance to exist...
