Yes, it is illegal to write poetry. It is banned. For a woman, in some parts of the world, it is contraband. So, when Nadia Anjuman or Zarmina pick up a pen and choose to speak their mind, poetry becomes a nightmare, a reason to take their life, but they survive; not in the real world, but in a poet's eyes who reads between their roaring lines. The harsh winds blow their bodies away, but their words stay-like a steadfast light needed for womankind to survive.
