Sitting between the walls
Of concrete and wood
Her dark majesty is laden
With bond of religion-
Bangles, rings, paints and dots
Her person denied to the fresh of the world.
Even the brightest ray of light
Loses its way
Into the sanguine darkness of her heart.
Mother, daughter, wife, sister
But was hated as a woman.
She seeks favours of a man
Who banished his woman and became a lord.*
*The favourite god of Hindus in India Lord Rama banished his wife when she was pregnant. She was forced to live in the forest and raise his twin children on her own.
