A poem inspired by the angst over the #BangaloreMolestation incident. It might seem a very dark time for feminism, but all is not lost!

Glitter and glamour
Music and lights

Tomorrow promises
many delights

The year of PINK
Women celebrate

Change will finally
walk through the gate

Change suffocates,
chokes the patriarch

His groping hands despair
to preserve the dark

He won this time
He will again

But the fight
is not in vain

Feminism
is an ocean

Destroying patriarchy
through erosion

No single fight
makes a visible dent

But over time
progress is evident

I started writing to entertain my daughter. I write stories with characters she can relate to. I use simple every day experiences for the plots that, though completely fictitious, could very well be true. My daughter, Pell G, provides constructive criticism. She is a little over 2 years old. I read the books to her and delete, shorten or rewrite the parts where she looks bored. She helps me choose pictures. She enjoys being involved and encourages me to write more. She asks for the stories to be read to her repeatedly and is a wonderful trial audience. Writing these ebooks serves as an excellent way for us to spend time together.
