Imprisoned


She couldn’t call it her abode. Living there was an inflicted penalty on her. His venom was turning her pale every day. She was becoming suicidal and depressed. He never trusted her. Any minute conversation with a male coworker or a vegetable vendor, ignited suspicion in him. Daily her character was assassinated for no apparent reason. A fear started creeping in her that her son after growing up won’t respect her either. Someday he may even ruin someone else’s life like his father. One morning, she decided to leave him for a dignified life ahead with her hope, her son.


P.S. Many insecure men put restrictions on women to roam out freely. Such men are not normal but sick. For their insecure and weak minds assume that women in their lives have no strong character. Women continue to live with them, sometimes under social and parental pressure, despite being financially independent.

For this year's April A to Z challenge, I will put forward 26 women issues from 26 alphabets. These issues will be inspired by "real-life events" and will highlight social issues and other faced by women.  Some of these issues might be globally prevalent. 

With AtoZ challenge like all- bloggers worldwide, I too pledge to write on each day of April, except on Sundays.

Drabble is the piece of fiction strictly in 100 words.

  1. You are right, it's insecurity that breeds suspicion. It's not just between spouses, but in many other places as well. For example, in offices, among colleagues.

  2. So glad for her that she took that step before it was too late not only for herself but for her son too. There are so many women out there who live with the insecurities of their husband and face this mental (and physical) harassment all their lives.

    1. Shilpa, I agree some women do spend their entire time in such a horrible state.

  3. How about insecure women put restrictions on men? She is suspicious what is happening in the office with him and his female colleague. So insecurity is with both gender, not just with men only.

    1. I agree. It happens but they don’t try to confine men at home. I had thought about what you have said before writing this post. And I agree there are women like that as well. But in the incidences I know, men also have put restrictions on their wives from going out of home alone, and when they do just to buy small stuff, they are tortured. Sad part is that women normally do not leave their spouse and submit themselves to continue living imprisoned in house! Insecurity is human nature, doubt is too irrespective of gender. Thanks SG for discussing it here :)

    2. I should have included this point even in the blog itself as a note to make it holistic and unbiased.
