Tears in the Rain


"Open the door!" He bellows and keeps on banging. She moves quickly and pulls at the bolt. He barges in, knocking her down. He shoves her out of the way. He goes to the corner where she has kept his roti wrapped in the greasy cloth. She drags herself to the other side, pulling her knees against her chest.

  1. Beautiful, as always. I believe many of our women wants to do this. Coming out of their homes and stepping forward. Once its darkness but it can be turned into light, which can make them feel better, liberated and happy.
