In this land I'm Durga Kali Saraswati

Where, i live in austerity 

Whenever i raise my voice,

 they shut my mouth and, 

When I'm silent they stab me from back.

I wear bangles, for they show my power, 

I've rounds of vermallion on my forehead,

For they show my courage.

I'm a woman who un-mould's the clay 

and finds in it life  and 

Who toils for colourful todays and tomorrows.
