To my beloved,
Waiting for you eagerly
To take birth inside me, my beautiful unborn child.
As a mother, I look forward to the moment,
to hear about your arrival
You are yet to be born
But my life has already started revolving around you my star!!
To have you, the doctor suggested me to not have food I like
To swallow medicines I dislike
To run, to hop, to jump,
To meditate, for my body to be ready
for your moment.
I make a promise to myself to be healthy for you
I am making a promise for you that
I will do anything that brings you to me
I will go far and beyond to hold you
I am ready to get pierced with needles
I am ready to go under a dozens of scan
All I wish is you as the result.
Never mind the gender, All I want is
a part of my blood shared in your veins
All the I love I failed to provide to my parents
I will shower on you like summer rain, strong and sweet.
Waiting to hear your reply
What to call you? A daughter? A son?
Do not bother; you are just going to be my angel
Please listen to your mother’s request and come to me soon
Yet to be born as a mother.

Trigger Warning: This speaks of graphic details of violence against women and may be triggering for survivors.
Anger is a basic human emotion, just like happiness or being sad. One chooses his/her way of expressing that emotion. It is safe until that action stays within oneself.
What happens when that feeling is forced upon another? The former becomes the perpetrator, and the latter turns out to be the victim.

A true love story. A tale of politics, treachery and war. A piece from India’s rich history. A vivid description of 18th century life in the Deccan. Yes, The Royal Scandal is all that and more. But it is also an aide-mémoire of the tremendous fortitude, the unbeatable spirit that women are, and have always been, capable of.
18th century, Hyderabad, India. A time and place when societal laws and rules came down heavy on the female gender, when zenanas separated and shielded the women from the world outside, when it was understood and accepted that the men in their lives would govern and dictate every big and small decision.
