Finding the feminine. For me this search began in my forties, when appearance, definitions, and notions about motherhood were all being tested. In trying to understand the feminine in me, I discovered the freedom of being afeminine (not in the dictionary yet, but it should be).
Hindi Reconstruction of Brothers of kin by Nandini Patodia. A sensitive representation of the original poem. I thank her for wishing to spread the message in the poem across India.
Brothers of kin is a short poetic expression of love and solidarity. We women trust in the men of this world. We look to you as friends, brothers, partners. Stand up to the honour. Stop this victimising brutality of rape.
