I'm Papa's Diamond


Recommended Posts

The following is an interesting dialogue between a modernist lady and an intelligent young girl (15 years) on the Purdah topic.

MODERNIST: Your father is keeping you imprisoned in the four walls of the house. Don't you feel that you are in a jail?

PURDAH-NASHEEN GIRL: They keep criminals under lock and key in a jail while they keep diamonds and gold in a safe. I am Papa's diamond which he keeps in this holy sanctuary (the home safe). Furthermore, a jail is always locked and under guard while our home is open. The prisoner wants to flee from prison. The prisoner is frustrated and full of grief in prison while I am at peace and rest inside our home. The thought of escaping does not arise in my mind. While prisoners cherish the idea of breaking out of prison to gain freedom, I cherish
the safety and peace of these four walls of the home. A fish is at rest inside water, not outside.
