THE MARRIAGE OF NAAGI
A parental agreement of marriage.
At 6 they were matched, sweet children.
At 9 promises exchanged below Jaipur sun,
And at 12 all knew Naagi was his intended.
At 15 she danced around fire, and bound
Herself to him ‘til death they could part,
But when she plunged her small body
In front of that bright yellow bus,
They said that was never their intention.
