    By the way, hysteria has been ruled out as a formally diagnosable disorder; it was a creation of ancient, misogynistic, unscientific psychology. Also, Freud has been always criticized for his biased judgement to women; he was yet another misogynist who saw men as the ideal. (Scientifically respected psychology don't discriminate and also, the find proper data to support their studies. Freud considered cases such that they justified his theories) . Fin. :)

An Introduction

I don't know politics but I know the names
Of those in power, and can repeat them like
Days of week, or names of months, beginning with Nehru.
I amIndian, very brown, born inMalabar,
I speak three languages, write in
Two, dream in one.
Don't write in English, they said, English is
Not your mother-tongue. Why not leave
Me alone, critics, friends, visiting cousins,
Every one of you? Why not let me speak in
Any language I like? The language I speak,
Becomes mine, its distortions, its queernesses
All mine, mine alone.
It is half English, halfIndian, funny ...

The Maggots

At sunset, on the river ban, Krishna
Loved her for the last time and left...

That night in her husband's arms, Radha felt
So dead that he asked, What is wrong,
Do you mind my kisses, love? And she said,
No, not at all, but thought, What is
It to the corpse if the maggots nip?
