हकीकत ये नहीं है की मै danger  हू , हकीकत  ये नहीं है  की मै तुम्हे  परेशान करती  हू|   हकीकत ये है की मुझे अपने काम करने के लिए किसी पुरुष की जरूरत नहीं होती | हकीकत ये है की अपनी सेफ्टी के लिए , रोजी -रोटी के लिए , आइडेंटिटी के लिए  मेरी अपनी जिंदगी के सपने   पूरे   करने के  लिए  मुझे किसी पुरुष की जरूरत नहीं | मै  अपने  हिस्से की   लड़ाइया खुद  लड़ सकती हू|  मेरे चारो तरफ जो भी पुरुष है वो मेरे दोस्त है . खुशिया और गम बाटने  और सुनाने के लिए / मेरा और उनका सब कुछ बराबर है ,   जिम्मेदारिया सहने के लिए मेरे और उनके कंधो की ताकत भी बराबर है |

That is SO me. I am an only child, I recently lost my father and chose to do all the rites and rituals alone without any pity-help from male cousins or husband and they label me heartless- kaisi ladki hai roi bhi nahin.
You are so right weak men and more than that patriarchy hates strong women, they want dependents not thinking,independent partners.

lot about death and yet your physical

fro archives, one of my favourites
The cursor blinks like a silent heartbeat, yeah I know what Hemingway said about typewriters and bleeding at them. The half finished chant lingers on my mind- Nam Myoho ..... like the huge metal prayer wheel...

पिछले 42 साल से कोमा में रही नर्स अरुणा शानबाग का सोमवार को निधन हो गया. अरुणा ने समाज के सामने जो सवाल रखे, उनके प्रति समाज में बेरुखी ने जता दिया कि वह भी कोमा में ही है.

An Ode to Madness
        I do not write words I write my madness   I am insanely alive a grief thumping

tic-toc clocks imitate
heartbeats hearts came first time later I guess so   Eliot ,Plath, Woolf Kerouac, Marx and
someone I am bad with names ...

“It is better to be hated for what you are than loved for what you are not.” ― André Gide
Introduction
I am a student in the class of life,a work in progress!
To this blog I am its single parent.Have been an English literature student,worked as a lecturer,language -trainer and editor.Ever since my daughter was born I am primarily a mom. Other than that I am an avid reader and a commoner. I am an eternal wanderer,searching for self,good books,and the elusives like love and peace. My urge to dig my mental teeth into something wholesome is as frequent and urgent as my need to cook and eat good food. My kid is my coach,and I would like to believe that my friends and my partner are fellow students in this wonderful class of life. My lessons come from extraordinary great books and mundane everyday tasks. I cherish my friends as special blessings from above..and I love to be one myself. Poetry is my first love and my blog my voice.
Bragging rights
I am my brilliant daughter's mom and her fellow student in a big class called life.I am a blogger,writer,poet,editor and I am told often I am good at my job.
