Contest : Sita’s Curse — By Sreemoyee Piu Kundu

sita's curse
Meera is bold , beautiful , sensuous and if we may add the word – sinful. Well yes for those who claim to be the moral gatekeepers of the society and also resemble the hypocrisy rooted deep down into our Indian society. 
Was she crying? Was she ever sad? Was happiness not hers? Did Meera have kids? Was she barren? Was her life celebrated? Was she tortured ?
“Trapped for fifteen years in the stranglehold of a dead marriage and soulless household domesticity , the beautiful , full bodied and passionate Meera Patel depends on her memories and her flights of fancy to soothe the aches that wrack her body ; to quieten and unquenchable need. Until one cataclysmic day in Mumbai when she finally breaks free…..”

  1. Meera is the soul of every girl, every woman, who was made to feel worthless unless she was deemed worthy to be picked to be used by others. And who then was even more hurt and wretched at what befell her. And who was seen only as a body, with only a set role of a sexual object- for the gratification of twisted wants. Who was trapped thus by her clture, by her body and a narrative that unfolded because of that body. She is the hurt and restless feminine force that knows how to give love yet yearns to receive it herself. Because she has been denied the knowledge of the power she holds within her body and her soul. Meera is an abused daughter, who is never loved. She is a pawn in the trade off with her family's guru, and a pawn again in a deal with the impotent husband she is sent off with. She is the shame for society, that must not be named, must not be allowed to love freely and bloom fully. She is the story that must be told. she is the one in each of us- women and men, that must be found, and embraced and celebrated.

  2. Meera was the man whom every woman would despise for she is the soul every woman would secretly want to be and every man would despise for she was the slippery wild beast who screamed loudly 'objects in mirror are closer than they appear' but no one could touch when the need be.
