A couple, with nothing that seemed to bind them, still walking the journey together. Why? What kept them together? A poignant look at parenthood.
And out of the night they came;
Two lost souls; a gent and a dame.
Eyes a mirror of despair, they walked,
Not a word escaped, they never talked.
Desolation reigned, utter and resolute;
Their face a visage of despair, absolute.
They seemed to seek, to find a truth.
Would their journey bear fruit?
Not once did they touch, hold a hand.
A distance apart, they did stand.
It seemed like they sought to part away.
But something held that thought a-sway.
What was it that these two could share?
Even together, they seemed not to care.
What was the bond that held them as one?
They seemed from each other, on the run?
Then out of the same night he came;
A wee lad, cherubic face, in one leg lame.
He lifted his hands & held one of each.
I understood why there was no need for speech.
Parenthood was the bond they held dear;
Even though they were apart, not near.
For their child they had made the sacrifice.
For this happiness they had paid this price.
A version of this was first published here.

As a working woman, if I wish to take care of my mother, why do you have a problem with it?
When I joined one of the organisations on deputation, I was asked to fill up several forms as usual.
One of the forms was related to the individual’s dependents. In that, I also filled up the name of my mother, which I had been doing since the time my father died.
Immediately the junior official exclaimed, “You can’t fill up your mother’s name as a dependent!”
Why is access to proper toilets for women still a novelty? Here's what organisations can do about it.
I have always been quite skeptical when it comes to using a public washroom.
The fear only increased once I attained menarche.
I thought I was weird for having such thoughts, but later I realised that most girls and women had this issue.
