#Metoo


She could smell payasam here at her room

Amu, take this and give this to him


Her mother called.

After that I can have too,  she thought 

She dashed to the kitchen 

Singing, she jumped each stair to him


He opened the door swiftly, as if 


 Waiting for her to ring the bell

She gave him the dish, which he took 


And called her inside, which she did


She stood there and looked around

Same as her flat, but hers was prettier


She smiled 


And turned to leave

But to a closed door

He stood near her, very near

Without giving space to breathe



“BREATH”

“SCREAM”

“MOM”

She ran down five minutes later

Scrubbed and rinsed from head to toe 

Tearing her lips and cheeks …

Amu, come and have payasam

Her mother called.

20 years later, Amu shed tears for that 9-year-old who met a monster while typing #Metoo

  1. That's the sad reality of women. I think all women have faced the abuse and harassment at some point in their life. On one hand I see my TL flooding with women writing #metoo and I feel happy and hopeful that women are gaining that courage to come out in open and accept it. But on the other hand I also read news that a woman was raped on a pavement in broad daylight and onlookers did nothing. And I get depressed again. Not sure when things will change for women.

  2. Reading all these horrible stories, I get to know that every girl had faced this. Some got the courage to speak up, some not. Some remember and some bad memories erased away. #MeToo
