The Realization......



There was no trace of shame on his face.

She’d expected him to be weighed down with remorse.

“He will die of guilt when he knows this,” she’d thought.

But his indifference surprised her.

Even though the crowd disturbed him, he maintained his composure perfectly.

She knew it now ; he hadn’t been affected the way she’d expected him to be.

She regretted the thoughtlessness  behind her actions.

She saw him cover the body with a white cloth.

She wished she knew then , what she knew now.




















That , her committing suicide would never change her dad , who’d so brutally raped her.

  5. Breach of trust and maligning a pious relationship is the most heinous crime , but one should survive to expose them

  27. I missed the last line (below the picture), so I was puzzled at first.

    A man who has raped his own daughter has a dead conscience, so I'm not surprised he didn't change. But I guess she was under tremendous mental turmoil when she decided to commit suicide.

    ReplyDelete

    1. That's true, Pro. I wonder whether he had a conscience at all ! Yes, she must have been. Understandably.

  30. what a thoughtful take...i loved the concept of this post. Most girls either keep waiting endlessly for their abusers to have a change of heart or commit suicide in a hope that it will jolt them and they will understand and realize their sin. But nothing can purify a cobra of its venom.

  31. Sreeja,
    The last 2 blogs i read from you, have been in the league of hitting reality (mostly watched in Bala's/Vasanthabalan's screenplay - from Tamil films of the last decade) expressed with utmost skill!
    Know not what to say!
    Great!
    Thanks!
