Let a woman sing

Let a woman sing

Why don’t we have many such songs or poems? Why is there no female version of a love song like “Chaundvi ka Chaand” or “Chandan sa badan?”

In Abhigyaana Shankuntalam Kalidasa wrote verses after verses in praise of Shakuntala’s physical beauty, which included vivid description of her bossom, waist, bust and other body parts of male sexual gratification. But show me one piece of literature where a woman who is deeply in love praises the man’s body.

There aren’t any such literature because there is shame and taboo associated with a woman singing about lust and passion, a woman desiring the beauty of a man, the touch and warmth of his body.
