A sniffed flower &
A stroked virgin,
Would soon become garlands!!
A sniffed flower &
A stroked virgin,
Would soon become garlands!!
They were friends
But he a He &
she a She.
They spoke on all topics
Tabooed and otherwise.
She shared her details
of her love life and he his.
Each knew the other
as one could know oneself
minus the intensity of the passion
felt at moments memorable.
They were each other’s sounding board.
Yet they had their identities intact.
One evening, being bored
He called her to his abode.
They smoked, drank and spoke.
She asked him “what would it have been
Like if they had had sex?”
His laugh made her wonder what he thought.
Yet he broke his silence and said,
“why spoil a friendship
that has been nurtured with respect?”
The woman would have none of that.
“How do you assume that sex would spoil it?”
The man replied,” A man is a predatory animal
And has to break barriers to perform.
So why tread a path that may not have a return?”
The woman was adamant
Her curiosity had paved the way
For her to launch an assault on his senses.
She drew closer and drooped her head on his shoulder.
It was not the first time,
But now the context had changed.
The strand of hair that brushed
against his face was stoking the embers,
He never thought existed.
Her tone had turned guttural and low
As if in whisper, she said, “what if we did it?”
“I am for the friendship and nothing less,”
Said he in a stern tone.
her curiosity was rising beyond her bounds.
Said she “Nothing LESS? I thought you
Meant nothing MORE!”
Friendship is more than mere union of bodies
And to move from friendship
To mating love is demotion of the soul.
She brushed her cheek against his cheek
And she felt his moustache kindle her
Passion to limits yet unknown.
He was confused and she looked up to his eyes
With surrendered deer look
Willing to squat or spread.
This was the last call to his honour
He flung her from his body
and ran to the door and out.
Friendship cannot be stained
By virility or submission.
It has to be on equal footing
The man was right, the maid tested him
But the man fled from the siren
To retain a Friend forever.
There are bound to be conflicts between scientific progress on one side and the purposes for which it is put on the other side. Likewise, social priorities versus liberty of personal choices. VIRGINITY is a fact establishable medically, but fast losing its relevance because of its devaluation in recent times. The devaluation has been because of myriad reasons:- the groom is not particular about this membrane, as a virtue; the religious indoctrination has thinned down (“If…no proof of the girl’s virginity can be found, she shall be brought to the door of her father’s house and there the men of her town shall stone her to death.” DEUTERONOMY 22:13-30The Bible); if the hymen is lost it could be reconstructed; hymen could be lost in strenuous activities also, etc. etc..
The issue has come to the foreground of the society in India because of the VIRGINITY TESTS conducted at the behest of the Government. The following is the news item on this:-
New Delhi: In a shocking incident scores of young women were allegedly subjected to virginity tests by the administration in Madhya Pradesh.
The young women were to get married under the Kanya Daan scheme in which mass marriages are performed by the Madhya Pradesh government.
It is a scheme on which Shivraj Singh Chauhan rode to poll victory. But now the scheme is gripped by a potentially crushing scandal after the brides were allegedly tested for virginity and 12 prospective brides were rejected after the tests.
“About 10-12 tested positive for pregnancy. They were sent to the SDM,” said Dr Reena Gautam, who allegedly carried out the tests.
“The scheme is meant for unmarried, for poor family girls, single adults, divorcees and also widow. Testing them for virginity cannot be more demeaning,” Congress MP Santosh Bagrodia said in Rajya Sabha on Monday.
WHY ARE WE OBFUSCATING ISSUES?
Because we want to create a bandwagon effect and get all the guys who support our agenda to join in and create an image bigger than reality!
WE HAVE TO DEFINE THE LOCUS STANDI FOR VIRGINITY TESTS. THAT IS THE POINT.
It was reported that when Prince Charles took Diana ( may her soul rest in peace) to be his wedded wife, the crown had subjected Diana to undergo various medical examination which included VIRGINITY TESTS also. If one uses one’s imagination, it is just that the Crown of England wanted an heir to the throne from the House of Windsors and no IMMACULATE CONCEPTION!!!
When, the royalty could, why should a common man’s desire, to have a virgin to be his wife so as to rule out the possibility of falsely raising someone’s kids as his own, be looked upon as anti-social?
However, it is never the Government’s duty to get involved in this debate, as this should be a fundamental personal right. The woman is at complete liberty NOT to submit to such an examination and NO ADVERSE INFERENCE SHOULD BE ALLOWED TO BE MADE in case of SUCH NON-SUBMISSION.
Further, if a man insists on such a VIRGINITY TEST, it should be left for the man and woman to decide upon it on a contractual basis.
IT IS NOT PATRIARCHAL, NOR PAROCHIAL, IT IS TAKING UP CUDGELS FOR INDIVIDUAL LIBERTIES AND TRUTH!
IF ONE WANTS VIRGINITY TESTS ON A WOMAN, HE HAS TO GET MARRIED TO HER, IF SHE IS FOUND TO BE A VIRGIN & IN FUTURE HE SHALL NOT RAISE QUESTIONS ON THE PATERNITY OF HER CHILDREN, AS ANY TRUANT PLAYED BY THE WOMAN WOULD BE ASCRIBABLE TO HIS NEGLIGENCE!!!
The Beastliness of the strokes were drifting her to shores unknown. The unfamiliarity of the sensation brought visions which would be disturbed if she opened her eyes.
She closed her eyes shut, and like a vessel that goes through the eye of a storm, she went sightless, with all her engines roaring.
When she opened her eyes she saw the spent beast, back to his nice self.
She forgives herself, for the sensation showered, every time!!
God asked him, ‘ Do u want to know the Truth or want to have the skill to make use of the Lies of the world, for your own benefit?’
He said, ‘ God, i am too small to pursue the Truth and die a pauper. So let me have the skills to handle the lies of this world.’
Next morning he woke up to find himself a rich man. He abandoned the search for TRUTH in the altar of WISDOM.
One of the eminent engineers i met, was of the opinion that in western countries there is an ineluctable concept of holidays, that once a westerner’s period for work was over, he would tell his boss that he was taking a break and go on a holiday,come what may.
But Indians working abroad do not have the self-respect to demand a holiday nor are they ingrained with the concept of holidays. They just work, work and work more. My engineer friend poignantly said AFTER ALL THERE ARE NO HOLIDAYS IN HEAVEN. After all, the journey from India to the The US or Europe was like going to heaven, and in heaven there are no holidays!
I liked his line, a line so profound that it touches the spiritual!!
