Precis


Published in Muse India: Issue 36 Mar - Apr 2011

The adorned kanjeevaram mannequin,
is ready to be calculated.
Additions and subtractions
of her assets are made,
in close quarters and fractions.
Wrinkled faces nod in agreement.
As detailed negotiations ensue,
future corollaries are predicted
and axioms seal the bond.
There’s no looking back.
It’s all about give and take! 
When evident inequalities are justified in vain,
the kohl baffled eyes blink.
The match is made. 
Sodden paths will now crossover,
linearities will be entwined.
Forever.  
Shes answered, adjudged.
But, speak! veiled show-piece.

So true! Be it a Kaanjeevaram mannequin or a Banarasi clad girl, spanning from North to South or East to West...at least India is united in one sense "Give and Take"
