"I was fed up with my life and so I decided to end here I am on the railway track and waiting for death..!!!" she was explaining herself and answering her own questions about what she was going to do.

"I was never loved at home for just the reason that I am a girl. Was it my mistake that I wasnt born as the male child who would take care of the family later. Was it my mistake that the society treats girl children as the "Liability" while the other gender as the "Asset". Was it my mistake that I was born in a country where Goddesses are respected but the girl children are killed??" she thought when she remembered how her father never spoke to her in all these years.

"I studied well. I am employed and earn good salary and respect. I am married...but for what reason? Just to work as a servant to the man whom my parents bought for the marriage? Am I given to him along with the money so that he can torture me physically and emotionally?" she thought when she saw her wedding ring.

"Today when some idiots abuse me and throw me on the road, where was he? It never bothered him coz' he thought I was always my parents daughter. But where were my parents?? It never bothered them too...coz' they just believed that I am his wife...but dear God, where do I belong?? To my parents with whom I took my first breath or To my husband with whom I am supposed to live my last breath?" Now tears were all over...she cried her heart out...she never knew that her death was not near...!!!

"Dear God, If you made the rule that Males children rule the world then why did u not tell us that we were just slaves in this world before we were sent here...if u did...we would never have seen those dreams and never have wished to live freely...Why did u not tell us??" She is shouting now..!!

He questions maynot have woke up God...but they did wake the Lineman of the track who was sleeping nearby...He was startled to see the young girl in the torn rags and scratches all over her body. He understood the situation while tears rolled down.

"I am going to come back to you as I fear TOMORROW and life ahead shows no path to me" she was yelling while she heard a noise. She turned to see who it was and found him sitting beside her with a smiling face and loving eyes looking at her.

"Why are you here??" she asked him.
He smiled.
"I see no life ahead, my tomorrow is meaningless. No one loves me. No one bothers if i am alive or dead" she was screaming now.

He smiled and said " I have seen these tracks all my life...from here it seems that they end at a point but when you go there they are still running ahead...I have not yet found the end...such if life darling...Today it feels that its the last day...but there is always a tomorrow...and before we realize that there is none...we are no more...!!"

He said and left...she thought for a while and got off the tracks...!!

It needs a moment to end a also take a similar moment to start a new one too...!!
