The only way out was to muster the strength and push her way through the cobwebs of problems.
Sitting by the window she was brooding over the opportunities she had missed out. She had witnessed 32 springs, 32 winters and 32 summers but she was longing for all that she had been 32 springs back. She had received so many proposals, that too from highly successful guys.!
What made her miss out on all those opportunities? Was it her destiny to meet the worst or the repercussion of her neglecting the golden opportunities and letting the good guys go? Whatever it had been, she regretted it whenever she felt worn out after a long day’s tussle to meet her basic needs. She had never known that coming from a financially stable background didn’t assure financial security throughout life!
She had a long life in front of her and she couldn’t move on nor could she recede. The only way out was to muster the strength and push her way through the cobwebs of problems. She wiped the tears off her face and headed towards her lawyer’s office.
What she sought at the moment was to get rid of the burden that weighed her down… the burden of being associated with the man who ruined her youthful years. She knew that she needed to procure a place in the abode of peace. She entreated her lawyer to shed that burden off her soul…to free her of that painful knot that had been the most pleasant for many but most painful for her.
She just waited till he got the papers ready brooding over what she wanted from her life. She came out of her thoughts when some papers were laid before her to be signed. With a jerk, she collected herself and without any second thought, she signed the papers to free her spirit and soul and walked out of the office as a prisoner released on parole.
She was ready to face the world! One more time!

Rrashima Swaarup Verma’s new bestselling book The Royal Scandal is a celebration of the spirit of womanhood.
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.
Women aren’t a place to dump a man’s anger no matter what the issue could be. And calling her names is again not the husband’s right just because they are married.
Trigger Warning: This speaks of domestic violence, emotional abuse, and may be triggering to survivors.

Five-year-old Niranjana was finding it difficult to connect the colours, shapes, and alphabet together. She knew each of them separately, but connecting them together seemed huge and impossible. Tears overflowed her cute eyes when the teacher instructed her to learn at home and answer questions in class.
