Struggles and Scars

Dad found a companion but everyone was determined to destroy their joy

He found a companion in the young widow for the first time after losing his wife, but society did not look kindly upon their joy
old indian couple

She was standing at the doorstep, all in white. The young widow looked magnetic in her plain white sari with a white blouse. She made a roll of her long hair and stared at my dad with her sharp eyes.

“You can join your duty from tomorrow morning. The storeroom is big enough for placing your bed,” Dad said to her. He found her efficient to keep as a cook cum overall house help. After Mom’s death, it was Dad who took all household decisions.

“By the way, what is your name?” Dad asked her.

“Yashoda Namusudra,” she replied at once.

  1. Well…it didn’t feel that awkward to “take financial advantage” of you (if that’s what you’re braying)…for though you’re repulsively ugly, you seemed financially reliable and funnily enough, I was actually giving this shit of a “relationship” a real thought….eew!
    But then I got to know the person behind your facade (It’s ridiculous that you bray on other people’s “facade”).You should not go on giving society the impression of a ” normal” man when in actuality you’re a homosexual. Come On; Be Clean! Strip off the outer cover that camouflages all your guilt-ridden homosexual encounters. 😂😂😂😂
    By the way-why are giving an impression as if we interacted outside Messenger and WhatsApp? 🤔🤔🤔🤔

    1. you are well capable of getting more gifts, dress, phone, travels of places, donations, more. you can ride on both women and animals.”victims” stories.. ..keep up!

  2. Yes, society has prejudice and it takes effort, i mean sincere/honest effort from society to change that. Having known you personally, quite closely, I feel it is also something that some might use to enhance short-term gain, sympathy from onlookers. This does not help, on contrary, leaves the actual victims, just a sad story. Just a little clean heart and intention… it needs, is it not?

    1. But you’ve to see; in a society where some sick men with the seriously putrid mindset
      inbox a woman “you are a facebook whore” for posting her photos on her FB timeline-we Indian women are by default victims of shitty rapist mentality. Indian women playing victim cards is a myth.

      “FB whore”-those were your exact words; weren’t they??

      1. Urmimala, If you wish, I can put entire text of all our conversations,dating back to August 2017, that would clear any doubts. I am load it on G Drive with password protection, if that is ok, I will send you the link for the file here? As to who initiated talks, what we spoke, all these times, who was in-boxing,etc, from day 1?

      2. On “victim”, it is the underprivileged women who are victims, like the maid in story, and i agree. But then, the “victim card”, is shouted loudly by those, who have to skills to manipulate society into their favor – the fox and hare, fluctuating opportunistically to serve themselves, the victims often mere facade.

        Do you remember, the “Papon case”. You, your media friends, how earnestly, the alleged “victim”, is closed out by an orchestrated campaigns, I would feel, one needs to be honest, and not swing according to wind.

        1. Do I have time to waste on a person who is facing court trial for Domestic Violence and harassment for Dowry from his two wives? Not really !

          1. Not really Urmimala. Not after 6 months of knowing you and suggesting that you “get out”. Not after:
            1. Collecting dress from SHEIN, yes, you needed a expensive dress.
            2. Develop your NGO website for free.
            3. Buying you an expensive phone.
            On all, this you seemed to be extremely happy, sharing the good gifts on your FB.
            Not when you ask for a quick relationship, don’t we know each other, quite well, your cases and my past? Should i send our conversations?
            Not when,you say, you cannot remain committed to anyone! but is ok to try, yes a self proclaimed “practical person” and a “unemotional person”.
            And not when, you ask for a expensive Sari, unashamedly on gmail.
            Was all this, without knowing me??
            Come on, be clean. and yes, as i often, very often told, strip off the outer cover, that camouflages all your double standards. FB and social media, and work for animal right and woman right is a facade for quick personal gains.

  3. Demonstrates how a simple yet compact story line delivers so many message for the society to stop a while and reevaluate it’s norms. Once again a wonderful piece of write-up from Urmimala on this cause.
