Society truly progresses when women can freely express themselves, be it through a wink or a smile.This poem explores a woman’s agency over her expressions.
”Manikya Malaraya Poovi” she sang;
She winked at me –
I was shy;
“Hey lady why are you shy?” She asked me
“As I am a danseuse” I replied
“Don’t you smile?” she winked again
“Yes I do but under the moonless sky” I replied
“I want to be cute with my hero,” she winked
I was shy again.
“Hey lady why are you shy?” She asked me.
“As I am a danseuse without a lover” I replied.
“Will you watch ”Oru Adaar Love?”, she smiled and winked
I did not reply, I just stared.
She stole my heart, the loveless heart.
No I am wrong, she won a million hearts
She said “Laugh till you cry
Why not give life one more try?”
I stopped dancing as I loved the song.
She sang for me for the last time,
“I wink I smile
That is my lifestyle
Life is short to live with regrets
Let’s wink, let’s smile let’s progress”
