A daughter is expected to never let down her parents... even if it means choosing marriage over a fulfilling career.
She well read all the rhymes
She well by hearted all the phonetics
But her heart glared those playing kids in slush
While carving those numbers and pronoun
She didn’t let them down!!
She kept scores good
To make their eyes and head gloomed
She barely friended anyone
As she has to learn all there in curriculum
Her pillow witnessed that emotional drown
But she didn’t let them down!!
That red rose perked her
That first love letter gave her goose bumps
Crush she had in her alma mater had said
“I thought you never chatter”
She was on tenth sky when he propounded liaison
Her soul was bartered
In the name of marriage
“How blessed you are to have this family”, said Paa lordly
She wept and screamed in that golden cage
Her hard earned degree questioned
What about that Scholar’s badge? All in Vain??
Maa proudly brag how fortunate their daughter is
Those envied eyes reveal the pomp she is cherishing
But every second she die, she plead, she shouts
She is in forage of happiness, away from this materialism
But alas! She didn’t!! No..She can’t let them down!!

If her MIL had accepted her with some affection, wouldn't they have built a mutually happier relationship by now?
The incident took place ten years ago.
Smita could visit her mother only in summers when her daughter had school holidays. Her daughter also enjoyed meeting her Nani, and both of them had done their reservations for a week. A month before their visit, her husband told her, “My mom is coming for 4-5 months!”
Smita shuddered. She knew the repercussions. She would have to hear sarcastic comments from her mother-in-law for visiting her mother. She may make these comments directly only a bit, but her servants would be flooded with the words, “How horrible she is! She leaves me and goes!”
Are we so swayed by star power and the 'entertainment' quotient of cinema that satisfies our carnal instincts that we choose to ignore our own subconscious mind which always knows what is right and what is wrong?
Trigger Warning: This has graphic descriptions of violence and may be triggering to survivors and victims of violence.
Do you remember your first exposure to an extremely violent act or the aftermath of a violent act?
I am pretty sure for most of us it would be through cinema. But I remember very vividly my first exposure to aftermath of an unbelievably grotesque violent act in real life. It was as a student at a Dental College and Hospital.
