The Downfall :

Lucky are those children
Who have the time to dream,
Who have parents to love,
Who build castles in the air,
But maybe I was starstruck!
Separation of my parents
When I was barely ten!
Catastrophic or tragic
You name it!
I chose to go with my mom.

It's not the love that fills your stomach
Poverty dwelled us
For every struggle,
For every tear,
It was nothing more that the life could have given me.

Sprinting down the dusty path,
I dreamt of becoming a sports person!
Keeping back ups in my mind,
Beauty was all I had bind,
Because my mom was of the kind.

Paving my way to adulthood,
I got selected for an esteemed university
But luck had other plans.
Financial situation was not aid,
Being the only support to my family,
I had no other choice but to leave it halfway,
And continued as an external student.

Out of nowhere
Something struck my mom,
And forced me to participate in RJ Hunt Contest.
Stars turned in my favor,
"90's Not Out" became my first morning show.
Many considered my show to not be of prime time !

When I thought of giving it an other try,
I got hit by the news of my father's death.
Separation was by living never by heart
It tore me apart.
He had encouraged me on every decision of mine.
With shaking hands and broken self esteem,
I gave my interview very nervously ,
I was destroyed I thought.

Love touched my life
Something so beautiful ,
But I had my struggle with it too!
My community didn't accept me,
My society was full of orthodoxes,
Women who wears sarees and wash dishes
That was their idea of womanhood,
Dowry was still in their veins,
And I became their hot topic to gossip.

To keep my dignity high,
And make my career fly,
I had started anchoring many
public shows and family functions,
Alas! It's not the talent that they saw
Not fitting into their patriarchal idea of beauty,
Despite of the talent and personality.

Without even testing me,
They had rejected me
For my body,
For my chubby face
I failed to be their anatomical slim figure.. Sad, angry,anxious and confused.

The uprising :

I have been working as an anchor for many years. I got in the limelight due to my first ever independent show "90's Not Out". My life has always been difficult at every new phase, but the less I worried about them, the easier it became to handle.

I always had great family support. My mom has always been cool. Though she was a single parent, she never made me compromise for anything I wanted. She showed confidence in me because of which today I can fight with any kinda tough situation. She made me stubborn for my dreams.

Though my dad got separated, he regularly visited us just to know if we needed something or not, and that made me realize that they were not good partners maybe, but they both were great parents!

I married a man whom I loved, and I believe that was the kindest decision I ever made. Though society was against me, he never left me alone and proved an example in our community that girl can be brought home without accepting dowry, that girls/women can do any kinda work independently. His thinking influenced my in-laws thinking, and today I have a great family on which I can rely on anything.

I believe EVERYTHING HAPPENS FOR A REASON !
