#Poetry. A broken relationship does not mean that the fault is all mine - why must only I bend backward if the fault is also yours? An insightful poem.
#Poetry. A broken relationship does not mean that the fault is all mine – why must only I bend backward if the fault is also yours? An insightful poem.
I will never be what I was;
what is gone, I cannot get back.
I am deficient of my heyday beauty,
but warmth of past you too lack.
You are out of love for me I know;
it’s all right, not your fault.
But why must I bear the brunt,
of what you so sloppily lost?
Hell! But I will not sit here,
writing obituary to our twenty years.
I will show dignity to my age, unlike you;
shall not cheapen our bond with venomous spears.
Rather, I will gracefully pull the curtains,
on our show that has come to an end.
In giving to you all; I lost sight of self
but never again, will I backward bend.

For International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women, let's look at how we 'accept' mothers who avenge violence against their kids, but not wives who fight back.
The silver screen is replete with depictions of male rage and men engaging in violence, but when women engage in violence, even when it is reactionary violence, it doesn’t sit right with us. We allow mothers (as portrayed in Sridevi’s Mom and Raveena Tandon’s Maatr) to avenge their daughters and resort to violence when all else fails, but when the abuser is an intimate partner, the rules appear to be different.
Depictions of female rage on screen garner mixed reactions. We root for protagonists and films we agree with like Mom or Maatr, but there are also films like Darlings which drew flak for its depictions of reactionary violence.
This begs the question, which women on screen are allowed to fight back and why do we root for some of these characters while refusing to see where others come from?
This Generation To Generation Violence towards A Daughter-in-law Needs To Stop!
It is ironic how women in the same home do not think twice before harassing a woman who left her parents and family behind to live with her husband.
“My daughter needs a husband who listens to her. He should leave his family to stay with her after marriage. He should be well-off and not let her do chores.”
“I also need an obedient daughter-in-law, who will be an unpaid servant and a punching bag who shouldn’t have a life of her own.”
