By Snigdha Agrawal
NAYSAYERS Give me a sheet of ripstop nylon paper I'll fashion it into a kite with our names stickered Fly it from rooftops Announcing to the world our forever love I know frowns of disapproval will appear Minds building up a fever "How dare she! How brazen of her! How shameless! She has broken all norms Flaunting the name of her lover Get her...get her…locked up forever She should abide by what her parents choose for her!" Says the naysayers. Do I care? None whatsoever! I'm a free spirit Cannot be coerced Will never bend Shout out to them "Clean out the antiquity from your mind create space for new age light Of course, you will choose to remain blind!"
