You are in land of vermillion, bindis, mangal sutras, bangles, blood, golden lava , shaddi ka joda
The absence of red is a reminder and a signal
Red is looking for you
When you become a widow,
women gather around you and watch you break all your bangles off your wrist
Broken red glass bangles
Is it a symbol of widowhood?
Is it a symbol of passionate sex?
Is it a symbol of no consent?
Is it a symbol of first night?
Your bangles break in bed
Gestures mean everything
Gestures mean nothing
Your bangles broke
How did it happen?
No Thank you Auntiji
