I Do Not Care About Social Norms

Rating: 3.7

I will fasten the bells of his love to my feet
And dance in front of Girdhar.
Dancing and dancing I will please his eyes;
My love is an ancient one.
My love is the only truth.

I do not care about social norms
Nor do I keep my family's honour.
I cannot forget, even for a moment,
The beauty of my lover.

I am dyed in Hari's colour.

A poetess very modern and up-to-date like the present women of nowadays. She always did what she wished, she is a born feminist, but for the good of her She was loyal to Krishna, the only one she loved in her life. I like poems very much where we can read the situations as it was. Thank you for sharing. My congrats for the winning The Classic Poem Of The Day.

The sense of giving up everything for love of Krishna is an example for true love itself, truly awakens the mind that defines the meaning of eternal, infinite, only and true love.........

I do not care about social norms Nor do I keep my family's honour. I cannot forget, even for a moment, The beauty of my lover. I am dyed in Hari's colour.....wow it was great braveheart expression of a woman when no woman had to speak denying man's / society orders/ culture, ; when woman had no rights to go against manly family decisions; i love this womanhood courageous expression....
