Love Letters Love : Love-Letter written by A Boy to A Girl





Dear Hina,


I suppose you are more or less established now. I hope you find Simla as expected and not too cold. It’s heavenly here. All sunshine and new pale leaves are making children running and shouting.


Those gaps you asked me to fill in - I hardly know where to begin. They seem like immense chasms. Twelve years is a long time. Do you think you will have patience to listen for so long? I ask you this because the first impression you made on me was one of intense, scornful impatience. It was at one of those debated in the Big Hall. I was a first-year student and sat at the back work a bunch of Freshers awkward, shuffling, fond of making disparaging but Sutton voice comments and an unlovely lot. I am afraid. I don’t think it would have mattered. In those days every subject embraced independence. I can’t remember who else spoke. I can only remember how you came to the edge of the stage and faced the House with an imperiousness that aroused us from our happy lethargy.


“Freedom”, you cried, “for Indian woman.” You must be mad, what will we do with freedom?


Worship our husbands. Sell our daughters to old men! We did not need British to enslave us. We have always had our own countrymen. Yes… we are slaves and it is you who have made us what we are!”


In the silence that fell before the hall reeled to your applause. I was conscious of incongruity. No one was less like a slave than you were that day. A bride for India, I thought, fierce and bright.


Afterwards we went to the café on the beach. Someone laughed, pitying the man who would marry you. “She is a tigress”, he said. “No shame or shabby tigress,” said another more gallant or more honest than the others. No, it wasn’t me. I wish it was.


Yours sincerely,


Sekher
