As Stree, I’m tired of being typecast. We are no one in particular, no one in general, we are who we are- as much a matter of celebration, as not- I am everything and all of them & yet not. Three women-beautiful, powerful & grey. Begum Akhtar, Sharmila Tagore ( In Apur Sansar) and Durga( The deity)
Poetry is personal, often jarring, unfathomable, beautiful- it is the closest to what I feel is a woman. And so these poems – neither tribute, nor a commentary, often a reflection. .From one Stree to another.
