Just a surname!

Dear Mother-in-law,

I was married with whole customs and rituals to your son.

I too had a family like yours.

I too had a loving life like yours,

I too have a loving mother and a caring father like yours,

I too have a sweet little brother like yours.

I too have vivid childhood memories like yours,

I too am ambitious, and dreamy

I too am sweet and beamy

I too feel the same air

I too breathe like you do

I too exist like you do

I came to you to stay with you

I left my house to brighten your house

I wanted to be a part of it, I wanted to weave my dream with your dreams

I wanted to be your friend and take you to the place you have never been

I wanted your love and affection

what I got was just criticism

here I am after 8 years of my life when I look back to check, what I gained being a Bahu of this house…

and what I find is, just a SURNAME.


Much love and gratitude




  1. Wow, so lovely and then we’re just with the truth. This was a lovely piece of writing 😊. Don’t ever feel bad or let that criticism into your heart, you are better than that❀️
