Like a flame of fire,
that glows, bedazzles
seeks not any artificial help
to bewitch others,
she sat, surrounded by chedis (female demons),
their bodies adorned with satin and gold,
hers was covered in a tattered rag,
they mocked and laughed,
trying to ruin her confidence,
calling her names,
just because that’s what they were paid for,
even though they were women,
they were hell bent to corrupt another,
to please their master.
In Ramayan when Sita was kidnapped by Ravana and brought to Ashokvan she was handed over to a group of female demons called chedis, these women tried to crush her confidence by every means.
They mocked her, tortured and taunted her to make her feel worthless, and grateful that Ravan wanted to corrupt a “good for nothing” woman like her.
But they failed.
But at the end, the one who betrayed her most bitterly was Ram, in her life Ravan must have had the last laugh!
A tiny bit from my book as added fun:
No crickets, no night birds, nothing only his own crazy breathing and her calm breath.
She grabbed his hand. It was ice cold and wet.
