She woke up early at five ..
Dreaming about her career goals;
When they announced the arrival of her groom,
Whose name she didn’t know..!
That paradise which she was building for herself
In her dreams broke down;
And her mind began thinking ways of escaping marriage:
She remembered the last night’s IPL match
Where her favorite player’s hair-do was awesome
She had multiple crushes –
But her community blamed her for whistling at players
And hailed men who paid for call girls..
She somehow managed to reject the groom
She couldn’t have her lunch peacefully
As everybody cursed her harsh behaviour
She was confused as to who went harsh…
She left home at 3.00 with her favorite KTM
Had food in a roadside shop which she enjoyed
Filled the petrol tank in a bunk
Where her uncle was working
And left into the woods ..met foxes..wild dogs etc..!!
Coming home …she heard screams all over
Coz girls shouldn’t be riding bikes alone-
That may mean a lot..
That time she realised that animals were no wild
But the violent torturous society..!
She remained silent
Had the dinner which was thrown at her
And went to bed with her mobile;
There in the dark she heard one shout
Whom are you talking to this night
She was tired to reply them…
All blamed her for her being cool
None could understand the tantrums
Deep inside her mind;
She slept with all her dreams;
Which would have come true long ago
If the society shut its mouth.
Next to her lay a devil-
Trying to find out
Her mobile phone’s password..
