Farah talks about the cruelty of man against woman and how he crushes her.
Oh’ brother! Just give me the word of honor
That you’ll protect me against the evil performer
The World is now full of chaos and gloominess
I get unnerved when I amble in darkness.
The fear to get trapped consistently stays in my despair heart
The terror to get crushed ruined me and reprimands.
It tortured me immensely and torments my soul
As if I am a puppet and don’t have any role.
Offenders pulverise my identity.
Tell them that’s no heroism, but timidity.
Oh’ God! You made both to sail in a ship
You made Woman from Man’s own rib.
Oh’ brother! Then why is there such disdain?
Why we are treated thus by miscreants?
Oh’ Society! Hang your head in shame.
For you have sullied a woman’s name.
