    Dear Meena, I felt a great sisterhood in you the moment I went through your poem.
    I wish a very long poetic life ahead, which will keep the world of women aware of their power, their weakness and the will.

    Being born in a community likely regarded as the so called upper caste Hindus I may not be able to empathize with the plight of those who were unprivileged and were born 'outcasts'. i may not even wholly be able to comprehend their anger, agitation and vulnerability. But as a woman regardless of any community/caste that has been connived to be endowed upon me through hereditary, I too belong to a sect 'marginalized and discriminated'. and i really do believe that every exploitation that births itself by losing humanity finds refugee through corruption; corruption in every field, be it politics, education, or any reputable professions (beginning with drainage cleaners) . Miss Meena's agitation demands an immediate solution and i believe it would be answered only through annihilation of exploitations beginning with corruption. Lets not be hideous when it comes to revealing how the world really works! Ofcourse the world is not fair and square! ! ! Yes corruption in every class, caste, community, race and gender. Money smiles in each and everyone's life; and it smiles brighter upon those who bribe. The ultimate truth though!

Apologies For Living On

I am living on
because providing apologies is easy


i was making choices
with insanely safe ideas of

i was a helpless girl
against the brutal world of

i was craving for security
the kind i had only known while


i am locked away
a terrified princess waiting

i don’t dream or think
i just remember and ...
