Cinderella! No, I’m not! Are you?

No, thanks. I’m not a Cinderella. And don’t try to make me one. I’ll not be judged merely by my appearance or so called good virtues of a ’Sanskari girl’. As far as beauty is concerned, it lies in the viewer’s eyes. I’ve not only got a beautiful heart, but an exceptional brain also.

I’m a grown up. I can take care of myself. I’m independent enough to look after myself. I don’t need a prince charming to appear from nowhere and elope me on that royal horse along with him to some far away fairy land, which is supposed to be a happy ending.

I don’t need someone just for my security. It’s a mutual relationship. Please keep me away from this age old virtues, in which the only ambition or settlement of a girl’s life is getting married to a well settled handsome boy and the only motive would be to please him by your looks and in return he will take care of you, provide you the so-called security for the entire life.

I’m myself. I’m comfortable in my own shoes, not Cinderella’s. I’m proud of whatever I’m. Are you?

  1. I’m totally with you on this. ‘Please keep me away from this age old virtues, in which the only ambition or settlement of a girl’s life is getting married to a well settled handsome boy and the only motive would be to please him by your looks and in return he will take care of you, provide you the so-called security for the entire life.’ This says it all so well. Loved reading the tale of the modern-day Cinderella. We may be princesses but of our own lives. We’re not showpieces for someone to handle with care.
    Loved this. Kudos for writing it.
