ज़माने को चलो बदलते हैं (Zamaane ko chalo badalte hain) Hindi Poem


Essence of the Hindi Poem in English

Come, let’s change the world, let's walk towards a new era
Let's accept that some lives are incomplete
Let's listen to every voice, let's give courage to every scream
Let's not hide our differences under the blankets of tradition

Let's ask ourselves what our gender has got to do with our dreams
Let's differentiate between 'My truth' and 'The truth'
Let's work continuously towards creating a world without any differences
Let’s not compete, let’s work together. Come, let’s change the world

Join me. Let’s undertake the journey to equality together.

  1. Strangely, I relate more to the english translation! The poem itself and the thought behind it is so positive. It is the perfect endign for this series of essays. It has a strong, anthem like feel to it :)

    1. :):) I just wanted to unleash my creativity - guess I am an optimist at the end of the day. Why should language be a barrier! :) Added the English bit as an afterthought. Glad you could relate.

      Thanks Seema for walking beside me in my journey to understand the various facets of Feminism. Truly appreciate it.

    1. :) Thanks Anshu...so much. I have a deep connection with that line. I genuinely feel people refuse to see the 'other' perspective. In our empathy lies all our solutions don't you think?

      Thanks for your encouragement. I do hope to continue writing. Hope to create an impact in some way or the other. :)
