#AtoZChallenge – Letter C – The Curse


Sangeeta knelt beside her grandmother and wept.

The 70-year-old could understand.

“She has a curse on her now. She can marry only after the curse subsides in a few years,” the grandmother said while gently caressing Sangeeta’s hair.

Her parents were shocked but they conceded as they were very religious.

The grandmother smiled inside. Her trick had worked. She had been married off as a 14-year-old and did not want 16-year-old Sangeeta to endure the same fate.

This is my third year of participating in the A-to-Z blogging challenge and like last year, I hope to complete the challenge this year too. This post is written in response to the letter C.



I'm an avid reader and writer. Reading gets me a feeling of understanding the world through different perspectives and writing helps me outline my thoughts from the cobwebs that the mind has trapped it in!
