Juvenile’s Delight

By Somali K Chakrabarti

In the darkest of winter nights,

Ruthlessly savaged by brutes, she fought, wailed,

as she was scarred for life;

wounded, she lay on the stony pitch,

holding on with all her might, they mocked her,

scorned her, she struggled to survive;

 One day she lost her ‘losing’ battle with life!

The Law took its course, offenders

were tried; As if in a cruel joke of fate, the vicious

of the lot goes free, for when he sinned

He was a juvenile!

With an evil grin, somewhere a ruffian sneered

at an unsuspecting victim with delight,

“I’ll brand her for life”

No one will touch me for I am a juvenile”.


Inspired by the post ‘ Too young to punish not to young to sin ‘ by  Dr Sweety Shinde, in which she has very logically put forth her points against the juvenile verdict.

  1. This decision is going to be a worst example for all juveniles out there 😦 No one will fear about law before committing any crime 😦 Why don’t somebody give some brains to our politicians ..who just talk rocket high 😦

  3. Such crimes have existed since a woman was born, only now they have got so brutal, only now they have come into open and only now how people realised that a woman is a human being too with equal rights.

    What is satisfying is that this case brought people on the streets, awareness went to the skies and speedy justice was delivered. Above all a new law has been passed today. Yet the brutality continues…have you read this?

  4. Even as the new Juvenile Bill is passed today, I wonder how much it will ‘deter’ the ‘wrong-doer. Isn’t there much more that is ailing our society? The way we look at the woman, the notions that we hold, the assumptions that we make – what will bring a change there? Where do we begin? Where will we end?

  5. Nicely put Somali . What gives me the jitters is that he is roaming amongst us and we are totally unaware of his identity . With his sick and psycho mind he is such a danger to the society .

  6. I’ve no more words to express my disappointment as the ‘juvenile’ moves freely at this moment. Perhaps, he is plotting on his new prey! The lines are precise and piercing! 😦

    But, I’m happy with this positive move by the Government…it proves once again how powerful social media has become.

    1. Yes Maniparna, the introduction of the bill is definitely a positive move, though the law is not applicable in retrospect. Should have been introduced much earlier, yet better late than never. Also the change in outlook is needed more than anything else. ..and movies should stop glamorizing the stalking of heroines in movies.

  7. He was a juvenile!

    With an evil grin, somewhere a ruffian sneered

    at an unsuspecting victim with delight,

    “I’ll brand her for life”

    “No one will touch me for I am a juvenile”.
    Those people who never feel the pain of a common man are setting our destiny , are making our policies and laws . How can we expect them to deliver something meaningful !!

  8. Hey, I’m honored. Thank you so much!
    You summed it perfectly. The bill my have been passed, but irony is that it cannot be applied in retrospect.
    So this particular rapist still walks free, although he made life ‘tougher’ for his fans & followers.
