She was a warrior.
Not the kind that you imagine her to be – No chariots, breastplates, helmets, blazing guns and duelling swords!
Those were built for cowards. Not her!
No hurling abuses or war cries yet her voice traversed and broke all seams and boundaries!
Fighting for truth and justice in the most righteous manner. Her truth was deadlier than any of their masked lies combined.
She knew they would come for her.
Hiding behind veils and guns, they greeted her with bullets when she stepped into her home. As she collapsed into the chair, her deadliest weapon slipped from her fingers – The humble mighty little pen!
´Hey Ram! My battle is over. But, the show must go on´, she smiled looking heavenward.
