Violence and abuse may be succesful in imprisoning the physical self of a woman, but no bondage or chain can touch her free spirit.

The Diamond ring
Stays on the finger

The Red tikka
Crowns the brows

Framed photographs
Rest on the barren walls

Purple bruises
Hide behind the curls

She measures the space
Between body and soul

The charcoal eyes
Envelop a distant face

The room imprisons
Her flesh and bones

Never miss real stories from India's women.

Her spirit flies
To the land unknown
