I have been to India…, Part 11

I have been to India…, Part 11

I’ve been to India
Home to millions of last girls
Home to the memory and legacy of Gandhi
Home to the work for a third way
Home to violence, despair, poverty beyond where the eye can see
Home to the determination to build girl by girl,
Village by village, state by state, nation by nation
Home to Shama, who asked me “What will you take back home?”

 

On the last day of Convening 3 in India, each participant was given just five minutes to capture what was sticking with them at that moment in a seven line poem which began, “I have been to India….”. Since the return of the Cohort from India, we’ve been sharing these poems, without attribution, in this space.
