Single Woman Status - Poem by Rm.Shanmugam Chettiar.
Every fifth woman remains single. (in India)
The delayed marriage of youths accounts most.
The widowed old women account the next.
The estranged and the divorcees on rise;
Marriage is no more a destination
To urban employed women who prefer
Freedom to commitment and adjustment.
If at all otherwise, it is from parents push.
The interest for self preservation
Brings in self censorship in single ones.
The atmosphere is not conducive yet
To escape spyglass and intending men.
