Apropos to the post by Amit:
An Assurance To WomankindKannada Poem by D. Vijaya, Translation C.P. Ravikumar
Rest assured and have no fear.
So long as you do not lift your head,
you will find men all around you,
If a Ravana was to abduct you
or a Dushyasana was to pull your robe,
there are many a Rama and Krishna around
who will shroud you with cloth infinitely long,
and pass you through the test of fire,
and make it all nice and flawless and sound.
