It wasn’t me whom you murdered.
Mrs. Roy – became her identity. ‘Just a housewife’ – they’d described her. ‘You’d better stay at home’ – she’d agreed. ‘Your father should’ve offered our son a car or a new flat’ – said her in-laws. She’d swallowed back the humiliation. She’d thought love was incomplete without compromises.
It was my love that you killed by keeping mum all the while. Hence, it’s time your wife left that identity.
Mrs. Payal Roy
