Hey my daughter out there
For a moment, I want your attention here
Your mother is an archetypal example of Indian woman
And when you came to this world, I decided to make you so, there and then
While the whole world is witnessing the rise of feminazis and now fighting for males' rights,
Injustices to us are not still sporadic sights.
But we are not here to study this multi-dimensional problem and find solution,
We are not aspiring to be a part of this revolution.
So let's begin ... There are many norms you need to fit by
For instance ... there will be occasions where you need to blush or cry
Your shade of lipstick is a criterion to judge your character
And you have only few opportunities in any job sector
On your demand, people will try to placate
And you need to acquiesce either soon or late
Even the vehemence of respect from society in form of worshipping female deities won't either palpable
But don't question that, silence is commendable
Your hair should be below those ears
And you have the right to show your fears
Your husband will lie and just try to give himself some verisimilitude
And for even getting the worst partner, you ought to show gratitude
In your teens, be away from boys
Coz' my mother also gave a caveat, that there is not any real love
and your emotions and reputation are society's favourite toys ..
You should not be a very ambitious aspirant
We won't let you fall, bear failure and then elevate to be a strong woman
at such a minor stage or ever next
Transformation in the old regime, you should not have a penchant for them ,
Because in the ocean of thoughts, for your opinions, the men have the helm
But I don't expect you to be enclosed in the four walled kitchen
You should work outside, but that too before marriage,
Coz then your individuality will lessen
You will get to spend limitlessly, but to only look pleasant to people's eyes
Cause some intangible boundaries are your limits and not the above skies
And you must always pray for your spouse to live longer than you...
Here also , you will be have a reservation in the queue
Now this is just the first chapter of how to be perfect women who can suppress emotions , not protest in commotions and have bliss in the beauty lotions
So remember these penniless traditions
They need to be practised, professed and propagated
Because even if society becomes secular in all facets, I and you will still be discriminated..
