-[55]- One new woman -[55]-

Today was huge. She was finally fourteen. Her sisters helped her put on the make-up as she tried on various earrings gleefully. Everyone knew it but to actually hold the Rs. 40,000 cash in their hands was almost surreal. She quickly hugged and kissed the family and ran to the waiting car. Worth every rupee.

Rs./Rupees = Indian currency ($1 US = Rs. 42.68)

-[55]- Selfish -[55]-

So what if I know better? What’s the point? Isn’t it a tragedy enough that they are privileged with your presence? And as if that isn’t sufficient, they are offered your wisdom and then finally, blessed with your memories.

They're all rightfully endowed with a part of you.

Fine. Kudos to them.

Because I refuse.
