Lok Sabha speaker turns poetic on women's day

“Pankh bhi hai, akaash bhi hai, phir yeh na ud pane ki majboori kyon (Wings are there as also the sky, then why the helplessness that we can't fly),” the speaker said.

Meira Kumar was widely applauded as she smilingly read out the lines after members had expressed their views on the women's reservation bill.

Members in the house were expressing their stand on the proposal for 33 percent reservation for women in the Lok Sabha and state assemblies after a demand by Leader of Opposition Sushma Swaraj to call a meeting and discuss the bill and an assurance by Leader of House Pranab Mukherjee to take it up.
