Like every ordinary woman,
She too dreamt of a prince charming!
Dark and handsome, witty and humble,
She discovered him when she least anticipated.
Enchanting in her early twenties,
Against all odds and family ties,
she eloped with him.
25 years of togetherness,
She merrily travelled in the passenger seat.
Highs and lows, failure and success,
She was the banyan of the house.
Sheltering them all with love.
Except, destiny had them switch roles today.
She faced the lens instead of concealing.
While her daughter nursed their home,
Her better-half and son,
Walked neither ahead nor behind.
They walked with her till the end.
And at this moment,
She debarred the back as well as the passenger’s
She hopped on to the driver’s seat!!
