No initiation, because we are…

Over the weekend I was traveling alone by train after almost four years.

Dusky tomboy at an Indian Wedding

…we haven’t moved beyond those tacky advertisements we heard of as kids. Yes, I am referring to the “good-looking-beautiful-slim-bride wanted” ad which to my utter dismay are still published in our national dailies! So why is beauty associated with being fair and slim?

Scars

With pavement under my numbed feet, I remind myself of the times when you labelled me weak. Oh, I never forgot your cold words, for they inspired me to change me, alot. Do you see the scars I bear now? they were cracks through which the light flowed. I have preserved them from ages now,…
