Akalya’s Feminism


Life blooms

Anytime, anywhere

Is Akalya’s pride.

The sinner, the sin and the sinned;

All dissolve in divinity.

The penance is rewarded.

Transforming betrayal to truth.

Gautama curses,

But the seed of love to humanity

Sprouts with no remorse.

The dust of Rama’s feet-

Implants faith and honour women.

The new energy is born.

Feminism shines

Holding hands

With Rama and Gautama.
