my belief
is tied up 
with the time i get up in the morning
       'thats just a way to discipline lazy people'
with the way i wear my yellow cotton saree
       'that is our culture..sorry CULTURE'   
with the  worked gold around my neck
       ' security for a married woman'
the time of the month that i dont enter the store room
       ' need rest from house work'
the vermilion on my forhead
       ' dont have to wear it in america'

some days i believe in god...
and some days i just wear an old tshirt
and lie in bed
eating raisins....

for the "Gods" to exist
as such

the complicit Chitragupts
sirens must tell his story
in all


steady at war

while a bunch of siblings, a wife of all siblings and a mother

covered up his gambling weakness

the follower of duty

dutiful king

dharma raja

relying on bheema's bloodthirsty anger and madness
relying draupadi's blood thirsty anger and revengefulness

to stay on the pedestal

draupadi's complicity
the desperate need to keep the akshayapaatra

which krishna laughingly threw at her

is this all you want?

but the other one wants to share the flute

sees the inconsistencies and apashrutis in how he plays the game of life

playing everyone around him

and the giving goddess

the goddess of harvest

she refuses complicity

pretending complicity only to steal the akshayapatra

to be able to feed the invisible to the world...

some women don't believe in gods.
