Beware! Eve is coming…


Eve, the mother of all mankind, is coming back. For years and years, we have managed to keep her in a box under the stairs. But now, finally, she has figured out a way to unlock the box and come out of it. Now the problem with her coming out of that box is, that she has lived underneath for so long, that she knows all the ways to get her things done. She knows how to give birth and she also knows how to live. If she can give birth and teach her children how to survive, then can you even imagine how much would’ve she learnt to survive on her own!

And that is the problem that the society, especially the male chauvinists need to be aware of. Men should not be scared of women, but they sure should be watchful for themselves.

If Eve can tolerate the punishment from God and can teach her daughters how to tolerate that, then can you even imagine how much she herself must have learnt!

She has emerged so strong and wounded from the box, that she broke all the shackles, bit off anyone who tried to stop or catch her and ran away towards the sunrise. The sun was rising up and got stronger and brighter as it saw Eve approaching towards it.

She ran so fast, she ran so swiftly and in a such a great direction, that she could not have stopped for anyone. She destroyed all the obstructions that came her way, she hurt her feet while running through the thorns, but she didn’t stop. And that courage of not stopping for anything in between gave her the courage that she could survive without anyone. She knows now, that she doesn’t need a manly shoulder around her neck anymore, she doesn’t need any part of that body which made her feel complete, because she is okay being incomplete. She has accepted her fate. She had two choices – either to run towards freedom, or to choose a shoulder to lean on.

She was so frustrated with living under the box surrounded with thumbnails of restrictions and thorns poked by the society, that she chose freedom instead. Her freedom led her towards a spooky, isolated, abandoned and cursed pathway, a pathway people used to frown upon, but Eve was so excited and enthusiastic about having herself back, that she struck all of them right off.

Eve is not one person. Eve is not the Eve we know. Eve is us. The Women. All of us who have lived under the box for so many years and now crave freedom. We achieved what we wanted, we got all that we wanted to and even if we haven’t reached the height of that mountain, we have learned how to climb it without fear.

Eve, my baby, you will grow. You will bloom. You have just been removed from where you were planted. But you still will bloom. And you will shine not because you want to show someone. You will shine because you are a star. Sunlight is dear to all when it gives warmth and light relief. But when sun becomes too bright, it blinds and burns.

Be like sun. Give warmth when needed. But don’t let anyone steal your heat, your warmth is a blessing, Eve. Do wonders with the warmth in you, don’t use it to burn your own desires. Eve used to burn her desires, write notes every day and burn every day, until one day she woke up, and collected the pieces of herself together and stopped burning them. She realized, that until now, what she was burning were not merely pieces of paper, but pieces of her grief, her pains and HERSELF. So, she stood up, gathered all those pieces and left the box. She ran so fast, that none of the pieces were left behind. In fact, as she ran towards light, she threw all those pieces in the air, as if releasing poison out of her body. Yes, this is Eve’s story. Yes, this is personal. But it still relates to all of us. Somewhere, we all have been collecting pieces of our own poems and tearing it down. We write, we tear it and burn it down. We cry, we fall but then, Eve reminds us of getting out of the box every time. And if she doesn’t, then always remember, Eve came out of the box in the attic after so many years, but she came out strong, stronger than ever, brighter than ever and fearless than ever.

When a woman becomes fearless, she becomes dangerous. So, beware! Eve is coming.


Speak ! Woman.

We often hear stories and incidents of women being oppressed and subordinated by their husbands. Or women being mistreated by her in laws and her husband. May be many of us are still facing that. And as a woman, I know that all we want is for our husbands to support us if someone says something to us. Or if not husband, then at least our father is our last ray of hope.
But let me tell you, some women don’t even have that. Some women are neither supported by their husbands nor their fathers. In fact, I have seen women whose fathers support their daughter’s husband and advocate their misbehaviour. That you know why he beat you up? Because you were asking too much of him. You know why he left you? Because you were putting too many restrictions on him. You know why he doesn’t talk to you properly? because you argue and fight with him all the time.
Trust me, this is all true and it happens. I have seen it.
But after a woman is abandoned both by her husband and her father, what does she do next ? Or what is she supposed to do next? She goes to her mother obviously. But even mothers are not of any help. Because mothers are themselves the sufferers at their husband’s hands. They themselves couldn’t do anything, how are they supposed to support their daughters ? How are they supposed to save their daughters from the torture ?
They obviously cannot. And the in-laws and the husband take undue advantage of that. They keep on beating and mistreating the woman. Sometimes, even the physical intimacy becomes marital rape.
Because how is a woman supposed to love her husband if the husband is a cunt ? If the husband has always been an asshole to her? If the husband has always made her only cry and cry and cry and nothing else. If the husband couldn’t give her anything, on the contrary, kept on taking everything away from her ? Even her own parents…!!!
No woman on this Earth can love such a man. And obviously she shouldn’t. I wouldn’t.
There comes a time in a failed marriage where even sex comes to feel like rape. Trust me, when that feeling comes, its time to re-evaluate what you are putting your efforts in to.
A woman should try and evaluate if the relationship she’s suffering for is worth it or not. If the relationship is still alive or dead beat. There are times when the relationship is no longer worth keeping. There are times when the relationship is better off broken. And I don’t find a single reason why a woman sticks in the relationship. Maybe she sticks up still because her family doesn’t support her and she would have nowhere to go. Or maybe she’s sticks up because somewhere she still has a hope that the relationship might improve.
But the harsh reality my friend is – Nothing ever changes. No one is going to change themselves for you, sweetie !
You need to get up, get dressed and become the bitch they have been raising for so many days. If people think you are a trouble, then be a trouble for them. Leave everything and everyone behind and just focus on how better your life could be without this man besides you. How better your life could be without him ! And then if you get even a single smile imagining your future where he is not there, then my friend, it is time to leave. It is time to be better and brighter. It is time to be a woman again.
