শক্তিরূপেণ সংস্থিতা


by

"আশ্বিনের এক প্রাগৈতিহাসিক সকালে শ্রীরামচন্দ্র যে দুর্গার বোধন করেছিলেন, স্বর্গের দেবপুরুষগণ যুদ্ধে পরাজিত হয়ে, যে রণদেবীকে অসুর নিধনে পাঠিয়েছিলেন- সেই দুর্গাই একুশ শতকে নারীর ক্ষমতায়ন।" -মল্লিকা সেনগুপ্তের কবিতার এই অবিস্মরণীয় উদ্ধৃতি আজ আমাদের সমাজে কতটা প্রাসঙ্গিক, এক সাধারণ মানুষের দৃষ্টিকোণে?
