Sometimes she’s being called a deity or sometimes being compared to priceless substances. But, a woman is always considered as an ‘object of desire’ and is expected to sacrifice for the sake of her family and society. She has to pay the price to be called ‘priceless‘. This poem portrays the complexities and paradoxes of a woman’s life.

आँखों की चकाचौंध,
वैभव का प्रतीक, स्वर्ण |
शायद अलग-अलग परिस्थितियों में
अलग-अलग नियति झेलने को विवश |
एक दक्ष जौहरी के हाथों पड़कर
सौंदर्य-वृद्धि का साधन,
आभूषण बन जाता है
या, एक धनाढ्य की तिज़ोरी में
बंद स्वर्णमुद्राओं की नियति भी पाता है |
या फिर वही सोना
वैद्य के हाथों ‘स्वर्ण-भस्म’ बनकर
असाध्य रोगों को मुक्त भी कर जाता है |
मेरी नियति भी है यहीं कहीं —
जौहरी और मात्र एक अलंकृता का जीवन
अन्यथा किसी धनाढ्य की तिज़ोरी में बंद
चंद स्वर्णमुद्राओं की नियति,
या शायद किसी वैद्य के हाथों
अस्तित्वहीन होकर
समाज को रोगमुक्त कर सकूँ |
क्या मैं इतनी मूल्यवान हूँ ?

– संगीता मिश्रा
