“Eclectic, interesting…will fill you with hope and resolve!” – Pick up our new short story collection, Women.Mutiny

Don’t ruin your future because of what people will say give in to a bond of marriage only if your heart wants it!
 
I don’t know what marriage is neither I want to know,
 
I don’t know how it feels like when a girl leaves her parent house neither I want to know,
 
I don’t know how it feels when you are being taunted by your in-laws neither I want to know,
 
I don’t know how it feels when at the end of the day you want to share your feelings with your husband but he says you have to adjust but neither I want to know,
 
I don’t know how it feels when your parents don’t understand you when you were trying to say about the issues in your marriage neither I want to know,
 
I don’t know how it feels when you are being controlled by someone and cannot do anything neither I want to know,
 
I don’t know how it feels when your financial independence has been snatched from you but still I don’t want to know,
 
I respect every girl out there who keep on adjusting in this patriarchal society
 
At their in-laws or parental place
 
But now enough of all this
 
This is your only life to live
 
This is your only chance to be happy
 
Your every moment is “The moment”
 
Your life your body your soul belongs only to you
 
You are the master of your life neither your parents, husband or kids are
Only you have the power to change the direction of your life
 
Stop thinking about society and follow your heart
 
Remember when no one is with you,
 
The Supreme Power is with you
 
Respect a person and not the relationship
 
This relationship is man-made on the basis of “society ko dikhana h and society mein izzat”
 
Come out of this Maya, this illusion and follow your heart
 
Everyone can be wrong but your heart can never be
 
Don’t ruin your future because of “Log kya kahenge
 
Show respect towards that power by following your heart
 
Because the heart is where he resides to always guide you and protect you
