Soumya Viswanathan

A young journalist
Soumya Viswanathan,
one night on her way home
found dead of
mysterious reason.

Call her bold or adventurous,
she was out there for a purpose,
to return home,
to her family’s bosom.

She did not return to her hearth,
may be her place of birth.
She was to take a vacation,
instead she left for a
different destination.

This is not an isolated incidence,
we must stop such recurrence.
Will authorities please awaken,
in this city of murder and mayhem.
Stop hogging privileges at our expense,
please release police
that is meant to serve us, the public
so that our daughters return home safe,
whether evening or day break.
