"Kotha" | Mayaa SH's Theory Of Slogan Of Living By Vichaar.


Developmental Feminist, Social and Legal Activist recalls a real-life incident that forced her to write her most powerful composition "Kotha" in an advent of her deep reflection of the progression of mind and mindset. Recalling a situation in which the country's strongest champion of women's power was completely shocked when she found herself in a dangerous series of events, akin to a nuclear fission reaction where one was caught unaware with a circle of almost uncertainty. This was in retaliation for the punishment he received for exposing the truth with respect to some other matter.


This forced Mayaa SH to think and redefine what empowerment really is. An immature young man and woman from the state of Uttar Pradesh sent her a threatening message in a very derogatory manner. Those messages ended with the words “Dobara Bhauke Toh Dekh Lena”… It was a game changing moment that made Mayaa think that the value of life has become almost zero and considering the seriousness of words that spread hate crimes. Apart from this, what was even more shocking was the obscene language that the girl used and Mayaa had to go through, who after misunderstanding the situation, threatened to humiliate Mayaa by calling her characterless and questioning the morality of her character. We are in the 21st century, yet such incidents happen in which girls and women are considered an object and used as a medium to fulfill the desires of some people and the next day they are nothing. Since ancient times, the objectification of women is deeply rooted in patriarchy.


The underlying notion of deep understanding of life is that there are people who are being sold like commodities in the market to become slaves, brokers, and it is extremely worrying that those who find out the truth also become victims of this by getting exposed to abuse and threats. In this kind of discursive life, women have also been analyzed to be part of bundles of things that are paraded, bid on, sold and traded,despite the fact that women today are making huge contributions to the development of their country in various aspects, women are still being treated as a commodity. Even in many brothels, women are used as an object to commodity multiple commercial needs. Their administrators trick buyers from rich families into buying young children or babies.





Embarrassed by the stigma attached to unmarried mothers, or impoverished women, they are encouraged to donate their children to them, who then sell them to wealthy donors abroad. The word "donation" instead of "payment" for the child becomes a cover to hide the business.The engagement between the discipline of international relations and feminist theory has sparked concerns about the underlying gender dimension of the so-called gender-blind zone and prejudices still held for women today, and has given rise to a rich and complex range of analyses. This attempts to capture various aspects of invisibility, marginalization and objectification of women even today. However, many countries have laws promoting gender equality and banning harmful practices such as female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage and globally, despite maternal mortality rates having been cut in half, women still face significant challenges in exercising their rights.Nearly 800 women die every day during pregnancy and childbirth, and more than 200 million women who want to use modern forms of contraception are unable to access services.







कोठा


अंधेरी दुनिया के कोने में रोशनी धीमी हो गई है,

लेकिन दिल आत्मा की पवित्रता में रोशन रहते हैं,

अंधेरे की छाया में एक कोने में एक लापरवाह फुसफुसाहट रहती है,

जो समाज द्वारा निर्मित वेदना के महलों में रोता है।

कौन कहता है कि छुपी वो काली उज्याली रात है?

निशा की चांदनी में तो सिर्फ अंधेरा है,

मखमल का एहसास सिर्फ महलो में नहीं,

दिल की गहराई की वो बात है।

जलते दीए उस मोहब्बत की गली में रोशन हुआ करते हैं,

जहां क्षितिज के उस पर एक दुनिया में हज़ारों समय ज़ैया करते हैं,

मोहब्बत के दिलदारो से जान से जाना तक नहीं है तक नहीं है,

जहां हजारों यहीं अश्क के पियाले पिया करते हैं।

उस गली के उस पार जो जिया करते हैं,

दिल की बेवफाई ये क्या घर करती है?

बेचैनियों के आलम से जो बिकता है,

उन बज़ारों की वजह में जो दिखता है।

मन की गुजारिश अंतरमन की चाहतों से है,

एक दीया हर रोज़ उस कोने में जला करता है,

कि घर कर गई वो अंधेरी रातों का एहसास वो है,

जहां जान से जाना तक का बस सफर जो है।

छुपे राज़ों के पहलुओं में जो सो गया है,

वो आत्मा को यहीं कह गया है, की कोठा तो घर में बना करता है साहेब,

तभी तकदिरो तो हर शाम नसीब वालों को दिखती है तकदीर जो बना करती है ..
