Dear Eunice De Souza ji,
I have a request, I mean an ‘Arzi’;
You write poems for poets and God knows who,
Why not write one about me- that will do;
I read a poem about the Conservative Catholic Society,
Where it was believed, that “marriages are made” by deity; But that phrase is mocked upon there,
And all horrid facts are depicted with a lot of frustration and flare; The true facts not only of the examination , TB and madness, BUT also that of her families financial mess;
This is a major concern for that girl’s life,

The girl, then would regret such a marriage,
And soon the man would have to send her home in a carriage;
This marriage, thought to have been made in heaven,
Would then end like nine eleven;
Girls should learn to fight for their freedom,
And remove societies ‘evils and earn true wisdom;
There should be heightened objectives for women,
And they should be free from all omen;
They should be able to get their attitudes right,
