Mother and Daughter

Read a review of “Interior Decoration…” a collection of poems by women, in TOI ‘s Sunday issue. Loved this one by Sampurna Chattarji –

“The last thing I want,


is to grow up

to be you

So patient

so docile…


I won’t be you.

Never. Not me.

But first,

I’ll just get my husband

his tea.” 

I was all 🙂 🙂 after I read it. Had to share it here. Hope I am not infringing on some copyright by reproducing it here?
