There lies she


there lies she ………
inside that vegetable vendor aunty who passes my house everyday …
dusk till dawn……..
she works !
my husband is ill….on asking she says …

there lies she ….
Inside that women ,who kneads ..her tears and her emotions…in those wonderful smelling garlands …….

There lies she …
Inside that women who comes to my home everyday… the world labels her .as
“maid servant”
Or in other words ..
A servant tailor made for your needs…

There lies she ..
Inside that seldom women ..
Living in her 80s.
Taking care of her 50 year old son ..
A mother’s heart never gets tired …

There lies she ….
Inside that 16-year old aspiring scientist …
I will make my country proud.. she tells with serenity …

There lies she …
Inside that traffic police…
Tanning her skin in the roasting rays of the sun…
So wonderful .isnt it ?

There lies she …
Inside that 24hours working lady …
365 days …
No rest..
No salary..
No. provisions..
No bonus …
Yet …the world labels her a”homemaker”
She is not working..
She is a housewife ….
There lies she within the depths of every women that I see..

But.!!
Who is she ?

Well.. I don’t know ..

Some call her goddess …
Some call her durga..
Some call her kali…
Some call her amman…

And….

I CALL HER MAA…
