No matter how you try to curtail her, she will once again rise and fly. This poem is a tribute to the woman with an indomitable spirit who was born to fly.
Cut her wings and she will fly
With much more rigor than ever you try
For she knows what’s artless and who’s sly
And all that because she is born to fly
Indomitable mind, resolute spirit
Her gleaming soul can never be trapped
Her depth of love, her breadth of thoughts
Her intensity of endearment, never to be mapped
Only righteous can gauge, her true self and what where she’d stash
Don’t mistake her for a delicate bud
She’s a phoenix, can rise again from the ash
With roots on earth and dreams on sky
All that because she’s born to fly.

The noted Kathak exponent Pandit Birju Maharaj passed away two years back. His death affected me greatly because I had just become a student of kathak and the composition we were learning then was one of his. For the next couple of days, I let his baritone voice comfort me while I mourned the fact that I would never see him teach or perform live.
Then the allegations of sexual harassment started coming out, which left me stunned. There was no question of not believing the victims/ survivors. Anyone who understands how power dynamics work knows that the classical music and dance space offers immense scope for sexual abuse. As a woman and as a feminist, I offered nothing less than unconditional support to the women speaking up.
A feminist man sometimes seems like an oxymoron, but maybe there are some out there. How is it to be married to a feminist man?
How is it to be married to a feminist man?
This is a working list. Will keep adding to it.
Do you also have a feminist man at home? And if yes, what is it to be married to him? Do share.
