Fine Line

Fine Line

written by: Radha Khambati

 

The line
slim slender
delicate
Easy to trip
And fall
It’s imaginary
And strong
Sometimes
You want to
Obliterate
For some fun
It encircles you
Almost chokes
you dare not
cross the line
The Sita who
got swayed
Paid heavily
With her life
The innocuous line
Don’t dare to offend
It’s your nooze
Around the neck
Let the
delicate balance be
Dangerous
As you see
For life
is all about
How you
draw the line
It’s fine

Radha Khambati

A film maker by profession, writer by passion. My favourite triggers are my childhood experiences, some thoughts ingrained in me from then. Being a passionate traveller this seeps into my writing. Promoting regional cooking, I make short films to show my recipes, and have short write ups often accompanied by stories of yore. These are recipes handed down for generations and would most likely be extinct in a few decades if they are not stored with interesting tales. The lock down during Covid opened this vista to me, and the writer within me emerged. Slowly I realised that whatever god channelises through you when words flow out unsolicited you need to spread the word.
