Domestic Violence #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z

My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Crime Stories in 55 Words. Today’s story, D is for Domestic Violence…

D

55 Fiction

The maroon dot on her forehead signifies female energy. Indian-Bride

The black beaded mangalsutra around her neck protects from evil.

The red vermilion in her hair parting is to bring about good fortune.

These powerful symbols of marriage soon loose sheen.

For they are now dulled by blue marks and the grey clouds of domestic violence.

    • You are sooooo generous, Roshan. No, there’s a lot to learn and write still. And no, haven’t thought of compiling these, though as of today, I have written some 157 55 Fictions on this blog 🙂

  1. Beautiful pic of the woman; and so well explained shilpa, in a short and small post, you have spoken volumes…. domestic violence is a reality not only among the poor but affects all strata of society, I was shocked to encounter women who work in the IT sector, well educated, financially sound and independent but living in a exploitative and abusive situation. Great job shilpa!!

    • You are absolutely right, Genevive. DV is not restricted to uneducated or lower classes but women from educated and upper classes are subjected to this abuse too. So sad this is!
