I choose to deny.

The Court proposed that I marry him.
How do I wed the man who robbed me of my dignity?
How do I accept him as a partner?
He is the one who ravaged my body and soul
He made me bleed – both mentally and physically
He molested me, took away my pride
He raped me.
How is a ‘Mangalsutra’ a justified punishment?
Did I fight my case for this?
Did I struggle against the society for this?
Damn the proposal of the so-called justice bench!
I choose to deny.
