V for Vexation #AtoZChallenge


In the past three years, it has religiously arrived every night. Just around the time the clock turned nine. It didn't matter what I was doing at the time. I could be studying, watching a movie, reading a book, or even rushing back to the hostel from the city or college. But it would come without fail. The vexation.

The vexation of having to stop whatever I was doing to submit to a discriminatory system. Of having to stand in a queue and wait to report my presence in the hostel. Of being controlled by the administration simply for being a girl.
