Ninja on a quest
Devi, the human machine.
The proud domestic help of six homes.
She slips in and out of houses,
Like a ninja on a quest.
Her hands move like blades,
Cutting vegetables into heaps.
She glides through houses,
dusting, sweeping and mopping.
“My son should study, Akka,” she says,
As I watch her wash vessels in haste.
She doesn’t want her son to suffer,
Or end up a porter like his father.
She works six houses, day after day after day.
She hasn’t taken a leave in the past five years.
And then, one day, she calls in sick.
“Akka, something’s wrong with my breast,
Blood is oozing out of the nipples,” she says.
I look up what it means,
“Sign of breast cancer,” the net says.
I almost cry as I tell her the news.
“It’s ok, Akka. Life has never been kind,”
“I’ve seen things worse than this.” Devi shrugs.
I look at her determined face, and I know,
Without much ado, she’ll conquer this too.
It has been twelve years since.
Devi hasn’t just survived but thrived.
Her son has finished college and got a job.
He got married and bought a house too.
Still, Devi comes in for work every day.
“You saved my life, Akka,” Devi often says,
“No. Your courage saved you,” I reply.
A proud smile sprouts on her face.
She gets back to cutting vegetables,
Just like a Ninja on a quest.
"Step 8 – Look for nipple distortion, retraction, and fluid discharge."
