The Truth

Top post on IndiBlogger.in, the community of Indian Bloggers

Those threat-mails filled with expletives made her sick,
She had done nothing to deserve this & to be the pick.

Just because she had not said a word in her defence,
Didn’t make her guilty or the culprit of the offence!

She thought her silence was her tremendous power.
If someone called a Rose a “B****”, it’d still be a flower!


She realized she could no longer hide the truth.
She had to come clean with a tooth for a tooth!

The world had to know her true heart-wrenching story,
Enough of doubts; now time to restore her previous glory…

    1. Speaking up is the right thing, Bikram. But is it so most of the time? Some decorum needs to be maintained & lines have to be drawn.

  11. Superb and well knit story in such limited words. True 100 are insufficient to elaborate further.

  12. Hmm - THAT's the dilemma always, is it not? Whether a calumny will die down if ignored OR whether speaking out is warranted.

  17. I am curious too to know what is that truth... Is she 'Mother India'?

    Enjoyed reading the poem... Feeling sorry, I have missed all your posts after March when I had been on a vacation...

    Hope not to miss any post in the future...

    1. That's a great imagination, Sindhu. True that Mother India is also getting threat emails... But, Mother India needs our help to uphold the truth. This heroine will help herself soon :)

      Lovely to hear from you :) Looking forward to your visits :)

  18. Its a beautiful one Anita.. I loved the flow of thoughts, the usage of eye for an eye and tooth for a tooth, the comparison with the rose.. Its a really nice breather to read such a lovely composition :)

    Cheers,
