the new baby was named

which mother 
i wondered 
would choose to name her baby
after an
illegitimate tragic karna
disowned by kunti
 renamed 'of radha'

groping for parts of me 
that dont exist
because you werent there to see them

our stories stay illegitimate
sustained by memories
and virtual spaces...

as brothers fought 
 for their fathers' kingdoms-
'spare my sons' heartless kunti
beseeched a 
twice disinherited radheya..
in the silences of stories
of kuntis who did not
ask such things
of their 'illegitimate' sons...

we speak
in illegitimate spaces..
to legitimise ourselves...
