The veil

She set fire to her dreams, to build a home for someone whom she never knew. All she trusted was her parent’s words and set on a journey unknown to her.
Loaded were her Ghoonghat(veil) with the weight of expectations and her sorrows were unseen in those long veil which was used as a symbol of culture..but indeed was only hiding her truth echoing eyes…The veil hid all her emotions that were reflecting in her eyes.
Every torture, every unhappy thought, and even her resentment remained shadowed by the veil.
She was asked to do everything in the name of duty…but none even displayed their duty towards the bride of the house.
She continued to live in those shadows without even an opportunity to speak out.
Even her cries were stifled in the name of family name and fame…
Time flew…
The veil finally wrapped her. Her sorrows went unheard like her last cry for help.
