Tradition


Tears and dreams in eyes
She says bye-bye to loved ones
Follows her husband

  1. Sati, was really such an awful rule. Thank god it is abolished now. But there are some places where it is followed. Well expressed in your haiku.

    1. Yes! Thanks God Sati is abolished..
      But even today women are asked to leave her house.. family.. loved ones... a flourishing career... and follow her husband and his family...
      If a girl questions... they say, "Its tradition"!

    1. Hawa nahi badal rahi hai sir...
      If that's the case the girls will not be trained and forced to leave everything behind and follow her husband... She would have been trained to live independently and people around... Marriage would not be forced upon her at a very young age!

      Thanks sir :)
