NaPoWriMo (# 10): I am a woman..

 I am her incarnation,
Goddess Lakshmi.
The Goddess of wealth and prosperity.
the One you  invoke during adversity…
But me, you trade…
My very being, you degrade.
You taint my soul, call me a whore..
I am her incarnation,
Goddess Saraswati,
The Goddess of wisdom and enlightenment.
The One you seek, when your knowledge is all spent..
But me, you repress…
My imagination, you suppress.
You curb me, do not let me soar…
I am her incarnation ,
Goddess Uma, Goddess Parvati.
Goddess of birth and fertility.
The One you pray for your virility..
But in my hurt, a pleasure you derive..
Make it tough for me to survive.
You abort me in womb, though your sons I bore..
But I am also her incarnation,
Goddess Durga,
The Goddess who kills demons..
Yes, I am a woman,
I nurture and for your well-being I pray..
Remember though, the demon in you , 
I can slay!!

About shoma abhyankar

I like to believe that I am a creative person. I read, write, paint, sketch, rustle up some quick and some elaborate meals for friends and family, love chess, su-doku and scrabble, can hum an old Hindi song tentatively, always stand up for women rights, hate fake people, bugs, roaches, spiders and cigarette smokers!! I graduated with a degree of Bachelor of Architecture in 1998. Soon after, I married an officer in Indian Air Force and have been on move since then. For a brief time of two years when we were posted in Pune, I worked as a junior architect in a firm. Being aware of frequent movement that we would have to live with, I chose to be a homemaker and concentrated on creating a warm and welcoming home for my family. But sitting at home without any creative activity was not my cup of tea. I learnt candle making and soon put up an exhibition at Poona Club when my daughter was barely a year old. I also enjoyed a short stint as a home-based entrepreneur, supplying chocolates and cakes on demand, while we were posted in Bareilly. With an inclination towards writing, I completed a diploma in ‘Creative Writing in English’ from Symbiosis College of Distance Learning, Pune. Then I discovered the blogosphere. Now I hope to not only travel and share my experiences with the world but also to pen a book someday....
