The Indian woman
can never do without men.
She isn't crazy, just she's so fond of them.
Much early the love stories of her men,
by loving her father. The man. Followed by her brothers who in return
adore her, irrelevant her age old or young. To them she's sister love.
She is always affectionate. Tying a 'Rakhi' in wrist or
on 'Bhaiya Dooj' decorating
his forehead, prays
for his protection. On brothers day.
As she steps, with marriage into her new home
husband in arm, she is coy, beautiful and charm.
Tattoo from sandalwood paste;
like fine filigree
on her face; temple; cheek. Ornamented; henna-hand
she blushes through her red veil; wearing 'Bindi' garland
and vermilion. Perfect epitome woman; in sari red.
Tears of joy and calm pour down

Lives to love her man 'Patiparameswaram'

In her stride, each day that make her strong

like her own brothers.
She follows ritual. In gesture respect, touch
father in law's feet, in 'Pranam'

Earn love and affection, thus privileged,
from parent in laws and own parents.
