Standard - Poem by Asit Kumar Sanyal
In rural India, people say....
Guess the standard of a family
From it's washroom
Guess the standard of a man
From his underwear
And guess the standard of a woman
From the condition of her heels.
First two are acceptable
but the third one not.
It's not a correct saying
A woman never known from her heels
She is always known from her manner.
Heels may show her status, class
But manner shows actual standard.
A woman with clean and nice heels
May belong to a standard family
But manner exposes her.
Sometime it openly says,
'I am the daughter of a bitch.'
