Do Svidaniya

This post was selected by blogadda as one of the Tangy Tuesday Pick. Thanks to all the readers who read this and to those who are going to read this. Many thanks to all!

Hi Mom,

How are you? Do you know who am I? Am your little kid. The one inside your womb. Am just 3 weeks old. Don't get surprised mom. Relax yourself. Know what? My hands and legs will develop soon mom. When I come out, I will be looking so good and not a Face only a mother could love. Why are you always crying mom? I can hear people near you are shouting and screaming at you. Why mom? My heart weeps every time you cry. I feel very secured when am inside you. I love you so much mom. I want to come out, go to school and become big. I always want to be near you. I want to see the happiness in your face when you see me. I can hear all the words you speak to me, but whenever I try to console you, you are not able to hear me.

I can hear someone telling you to kill me and rubbing salt into your wounds. No mom, please don't kill me. Dig in your heels, refuse their plans and their views as well. I will be a good kid to you and not a prankster. I can understand that nobody wants you to carry me inside you. Don't listen to them. Tell them that, I will take care of you when I become big. You will adore me when you see me. But am worried about you. You please take care. Ahh.. See mom, someone is coming near you. Mom what's happening here? You are weeping continuously. Ahh.. someone is coming near me as quiet as a mouse holding a big rod like thing in his hands. This monster seems to be dab hand with rods. Am terrified at the sight of this rod. The rod is coming so close to me mom. It has sharp ends. It may hurt you too mom. Mom, please save me mom. Someone is trying to kill me. Mom, save me from that monster. I don't have hands or legs to protect myself. God,you may have other fish to fry, but tell mom that I love her and ask her to save me from this monster. Mom, can't you hear me screaming? Am seeking your help. The dice are loaded against me. Help me please. Mom, that rod is scrapping me and my cells off you. Am bleeding now. It pains a lot mom. I will never get those hands and legs I told you. I won't become big. Above all, I can't see your lovely face. I won't see a new dawn. Ahh.. my bleeding is increasing now. Is it hurting you too? M...o....mmmmmm, Mommmm...Am going to die now. Please don't cry mom. I love you so much mom. Take care of your health. I am signing off before the last breath escapes from me.

Love you mom.

Yours Lovingly,

The Little Foetus scrapped off your womb.

Stop Abortion! I don't know how many liked this. My heart weighed a ton kilos while writing this post. This is just an insight of the fetus's mentality (Ofcourse which I imagined). The rod the child mentioned is termed as CURETTE, a surgical instrument.

P.S : The topic of this post-Do Svidaniya is a Russian phrase meaning GOODBYE. The fetus/kid is bidding adieu to this world.

With Love,

lostworld said...

First!

Feel bitter reading this post. I don't know what to say. Abortion is murder indeed. Pity pity pity!!!! Shame on us all.

mAhEsH KaLaAL said...

very well written and narrated .... touching and contemporary...

Abortion is one of the indicators of human devolution to cease himself out off earth.

Though I have some questions of emotional, psychological, biological, relevance(am an anthropologist) with respect to this topic, I dont want to magnify them(too much technical) as your intention is to raise the awareness on abortion and I support your point completely.
Great work....Keep budding up the social issues. :) :)

Anoop said...

Too good a post girl.. one of your all time best posts :) really liked it.. wish more and more people would read this!

WELCOME TO MY WORLD OF POETRY: said...

I read this with tears running down my face,
What a brilliant yet upsetting post? I have never looked at abortion quite in that light before, but this letter has changed all that. well done on putting this important issue on Blogland.

Yvonne.

The Aspirant said...

a very good one.......

Rachana Shakyawar said...

@ Shruti

O! Dear!! You wont believe that...while reading this post..at the end I found myself in tears! Beautifully expressed the issue.

Hats off! Gurl!!

Sid 'Ravan' Kabe said...

eeu eeu eeuu.... u know y...and nice post...:D

vEnKy said...

Your phrasing has improved really nice concept. You see there is a problem when you say stop abortion. It is better if we stop unwanted pregnancy. In this world nothing can be white or black everything is gray. The child if born becomes a bastard. There is a chance it might be thrown and get into wrong peoples hands and end being someone to regret. It is better in a case if it is stopped at the beginning. People eat eggs what do u call that. It doesn't work that way my dear friend. This is comes only if it is from our kind. We better cut the root to all this which is unwanted pregnancy.

Shruti said...

@Avada
Hey, I don't know whether this my best. But personally its close to my heart!

Shruti said...

@Yvonne
Briliant yet upsetting? May be the law of nature acting outwardly?

This is the underlying truth and I wrote this as a child's version!
Thanks!

Shruti said...

@The aspirant
Thanks a ton!

Shruti said...

@Rachna
This is such a sensitive issue! Thanks for those good words!

Shruti said...

@SiD
heheeh... I know!

Thanks :)

Shruti said...

@Venky
Thanks!
Here, this can be a baby even with regular relationship. But, some just abort the babies listening to their MIL's!
That's a separate issue. My point is, don't kill them! That's it!

kasabiangirl said...

Wonderful write up Shruti and this may be one of your best :)

Chatterbox said...

Excellently drafted post on a sensitive issue!
I must say your powerful writing did full justice in delivering the pain from an unborn child's front.

Keep up the fantastic work Shruti :)

Cheers!!

BK Chowla said...

Frankly,I have no words to express myself on this so touching post.

Makk said...

DO you specialize in portraying pain??

Keep it up.

Ekam said...

I completely agree with Bala. You wrote it so well, not only this but each n every post. I could actually feel the pain of that little baby. You can't even call 'it' a 'baby'!Abortion is really a murder. There's no bigger a sin one can commit than killing, murdering their own child when he/she's not even born :X

srividya said...

awesome!!!

nice to read ur posts..
excellent writing da..u seemed to be a good eye opener for many ppl..

HaRy!! said...

Can only compliment by saying this is ur best post out of all yur posts so far!! Apart from the great Almighty no one has the right to take a life...and yeah abortion should be banned for good! Taking a life is not the means for one's blunt mistakes! good eye opener post Shruti ma...try sending to Ananda Vikaten! kalakals as usual!

Shruti said...

@KG

Shruti said...

@Chatterbox
Hey welcome to my space and thanks a ton for those nice words!

Shruti said...

@Chowla Ji
Thank you so much! I understood ur reactions by these words in ur comment!

Shruti said...

@Makk
Should i take it as a honor or the other way?

Shruti said...

@Ekam
Girl you once again made me speechless!!This sensitive issue brought out many's attention!
Wish it can reach the corners of the world!

Shruti said...

@Sri
Romba pugazhadha!

Shruti said...

But Thanks a lot!

☥ ѕωαмι ηανєєη said...

my views on abortion are "depends on the circumstances"

ur view ... pain of the foetus .... nicely presented ..got me emotional!

Shruti said...

@Gyanban
Welcome to mu blog! Your views are different!?
Thanks :)

thebutterflydiaries said...

Great writing and powerful concept, Shruti. Surely, a sign of your maturity as a writer.

But your moving post does not convince me completely about the issue.

You see, I have the undeserved privilege of being a man in this country. I do not have any concept of what it is to be always disfavoured, to be looked down, taken for granted, expected to conform, not in charge of my own fate and so many other things that are the burden of women in our "Mera Bharat Mahan" society.

I'd first have to listen to the case of a mother to be on whom a child was forced and luckily had the option of terminating the pregnancy (oh so inhuman a term). What would she say?

Humbly, I thank God I'll never have to choose life or death for a child in my womb.

And, in the ultimate analysis, pray that a woman always be empowered to decide her fate and the Almighty guide her to a decision she can live with.

A very dramatic and powerful post. Thank you for the very new viewpoint.

Shruti said...

@Butterfly Diaries
Welcome back after a long time :)
Opinion differs. And the position of the girl must be considered. But they don't have the right to kill that fetus!

Prats said...
