CELEBRATION OF WOMANHOOD

         (Credits  Nicky Ummatt)

Each of my adornment from my bindi on forehead to my payal  on my ankles  is a celebration of my womanhood. This post is dedicated to Sola Shingar (sola means 16)  on festivals of Karvachauth 

 

Bangles adoring my arms

Are  not  just an ornament

The  music it creates 

Is my companion whole day

A solace that I am not alone 

When I work on the fields whole day

When I do household chores

While my loved ones are away.

Mehndi adorning my hands

                   Is not just a custom to perform 

                  It is a blessing of love in my life

                  It’s intricate patterns so beautifully drawn

                 Yet neither have a start nor an end

                 Just like the cycle  of life
