An Indian Girl Wanting To Look Like A Foreigner, Brownish & Glistening - Poem by Bijay Kant Dubey

An Indian girl wanting to look like a foreigner
Has cut her hair short
To be bobby-cut
And has browned the hair
To look golden and glistening.

Not a White memsaheb is she,
But a brown sahiba
Wanting to speak Hindi
Even in an alien tongue,
Anglicizing it
Stylistically.

She wants not to walk on earth,
But like an upsara, a celestial damsel
In heaven
Whose legs will not place
On this earth of mud and soil,
Taking always fanciful
And imaginative flights.
