I am just another guinea pig of the messed-up Indian education system.
This is how Simar Singh, a 16-year-old poet, describes himself in a blog post. An accidental poet at an age when our minds are brewing with revolutionary ideas, observations, and newly acquired perceptions, but our parents and society discredit us for being rebellious.
We’ve been brought up in households, which made us preach such false teachings. They told me I will soon be the man of the house, while I was just 6 years old.
These same households propagate the idea of women being the weaker sex. Patriarchy is a double edged sword which attacks the freedom of men as violently as they do women’s. He identifies all the stages when a little boy is ridiculed for crying.
Simar Singh has been working in theatre from age 3 and he also tried his hands on stand-up comedy.edex
And contrary to popular belief, this still is feminism.
Simar says these words before he addresses every brother, father and son in the audience who must have cried in silence because his emotional side was not welcomed. He urges people to talk to their fathers, brothers, sons, and ask what troubles them.
Simar Singh signed up for a comedy show but later realised that it was poetry open mic. That was the day when a poet was born for the rest of the world.Medium
