Draupadi’s Tears

Posted: November 27, 2018

Draupadi calls out the injustice meted out to her in this poem. Read on.

It was just a game for you,
But,It meant life for me.
It was just a moment for you,
But it meant my existence.

When I was not at fault
Why did I reap?

Just because I expressed myself?
Just because I never spoke when you divided my individuality?
Just because I accepted happily when you married another woman?

Yes I was faithful till you were.
I found solace in you till you provided.
If you don’t stand up, I will have to call upon someone.
I will have to call Krishna to show your cowardice.

But remember, you will have to pay,
You will have to pay a price,
A price of- Mahabharata
