Relentless, determined and resolute.. I am like a candle in the wind!
The human heart is indeed a dark place
Filled with despair, anguish, jealousy; not shown on the face.
Shadowing and enveloping every living being
Making lives full of suffering.
I sat in front of the Altar, silently
Thinking about this sadness, gloomy and sadly.
What can I do to dispel this darkness
And fill the world with joy and happiness.
I sat in solitude, yet brimming with confidence
Amidst all the agonizing disturbance.
I kept gazing at the candle shining so bright
Despite the wind trying to put out it’s light.
In a moment something struck my mind
Felt like the world’s best thing, I did find.
Candle in the wind, that’s what I would be
To enlighten the heart of humanity.
I may be put out by the storm, wind or rain
But I would light up again and again.
I would be a candle in the wind

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.
