Sacrificed at the altar of heritage-----A king laments


"She  said
she had lived in seclusion
never touched by any hand or eye
she had entered the flames
and said "none is purer than I"

AGNI
The   FIRE GOD
had returned her unscathed
He had said she was
untainted unblemished than all"

"But as a king I have to honour
the wishes of my subjects
oh why am I to listen to that man
that washerman who himself
is  tainted and vicious?

Is this  the price
I have to pay for my lineage??
My sorrows ,my happiness,my beliefs
are they to be sacrificed
on the altar of heritage. ??

OH GOD
 I AM FRAMED
why was I not born
of humbler parents
whom no one would sc
orn""
