Ten years ago, on this World Women’s Day
we took each other’s book and tallied influence,
a man and his wife, a wife and her man
but none more human than the other one!

Thus the game began on the checkered board
of life, the game of power dynamics.
I wonder if one ever wins in it,
except power in revelry, being wooed!

I had my firm gaze fixed on liberty
while she on an absolute dominance
but we both lost that day, I remember –
one a slave of the past, the other of future!

Perhaps all we craved for was a new start since the dead child
but beloved Destiny had other plans for such is life!
