Where Should Women Fight? - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.

When a man stole a woman
She is branded mud and he a stud.
She is reviled and he, envied.
She is labeled a harlot and he, a starlet.
It is here that women must fight
Against the scale that is skewed
Towards men to their advantage.

    This is so true. Women fight and cry and fight again and again. How many years will it take for Man and Woman to be balanced on a scale? It is sad, it is painful. I invite you to read to be a Butterfly on similar theme. (Report) Reply

    When a man loves again, it is a mark of his manliness, when a woman falls in love again, she is a wore..............there goes English Classics.............it is history, geography and physics and why not biological...............fighting is enough Sir, it is time to reconcile and accept and die peacefully..............
