Which jasmine?
I planted myself in the yard
I grew
And bloomed
I broke open my subdued breath
Through flowers
Who did see
the tears on the petals?
While crossing
Banks of so many people
Half of the life
Got drowned
Bai dot com
Each generation
Eases out a stich
And people relax
From the clutches of tradition
However they never become free
A new stitch replaces the old
In a new form
And the woman gets tied up
In new traditions
