Taken or Not.
I can empathize.
While watching the Hollywood Blockbuster, “Taken” where a father, a former CIA operative moves heaven and earth to save his daughter from a prostitution racket in Paris , I wondered, ‘How many daughters’ fathers are CIA operatives who can fight the world to save their daughters? Who can break bones, shoot people and jump over the bridges to ensure the safety of their daughters? Why do men react only when it comes to their own daughters? And sometime they don’t even do that.
Grieve not my kinsmen
but just look around,
Behold! I’m reborn
in this cremation ground.
It wasn’t me
Do we really know
What we are fighting for……………….?
………….. Dressing up like men?
Or……….Drinking and smoking like men?
Why women are not good drivers?
As we were getting late for a party, I hurriedly locked the doors behind us after picking up the car keys. When I opened the door of the car to get into the driver’s seat, my brother asked for the keys to drive which I reluctantly handed over to him.
I sat next to him, as he drove, with something stuck in my throat that was desperately wanting to come out .He must have driven a hundred meters only, to discover a traffic jam because of a car stuck due to the incompetency of the driver to reverse and park it.
