Don’t Do That, Listen To Me



Don’t stay out late.

Hang out with friends when you’re older.

Stay indoors, you are too young.

Don’t watch such movies.

Lower your voice.

Get married. Have kids.

Nobody has it easy, adjust.

Stay married, your kids will thank you later.

Divorce at this age? Are you crazy?

Stay indoors, you are old and frail.


This is an attempt in 55 words to portray what women in India and across the world go through on an almost daily basis. They have to listen and put up with so much of emotional and physical abuse that it is a shame on entire humanity.

Linking this to Writing Wednesdays and to Friday Reflections.

Writing to me is therapy, it frightens and comforts at the same time. Liberates like nothing else. A book in my own name is a dream, but a bigger dream would be to write something that haunts the reader even after the last page is turned and the book is shut. I enjoy reading and music, spending time with family whilst battling my social awkwardness.
