Her Dream Bicycle Story
Malar lived with her family in Keeranur village in Pudukottai district. Malar studied in sixth class. She was eleven years old. He had two elder sisters and a younger brother. His name was Arul. Malar’s father was Kathirvel. Kathirvel was a hardworking farmer. Recently, rains were irregular and he was not always able to cultivate his two acres of land. His eldest sister was Ponni.
Ponni was married to a mason and lived in Mathur with her younger son Vikram. Malar’s second sister was Mallika. Mallika decided to take up tailoring after class ten and was attending a tailoring course in Mathur. Participating in the course also gave Mallika the opportunity to meet her sister Ponni. But walking all the way would tire her and she would often miss sewing class.
Mallika’s mother used to scold her. “Oh! Why are you so lazy? You should attend your classes regularly”.
Mallika used to reply, “I walk 9 kilometers every day – 4 kilometers to sewing classes, 2 kilometers to fetch water and 3 miles to take lunch for father when you are busy. You can’t call me lazy.”
Actually, no one was lazy in his house. Malar used to walk 1 kilometer with her friends to school and back. She and her friends talked and played all the way.
One day, when Arul and Malar came back from school, their father looked upset. He told his wife, “Shanti, it seems the Collector is not satisfied with teaching only mathematics and Tamil. He wants women to learn cycling as well.”
Malar was excited. She asked, “Dad, is this only for mom? Can I learn?”
Mallika was also interested. “If anyone needs a bicycle, it’s me,” he said.
Arul said, “This is really great. If you buy me a bicycle, I can teach both of you how to ride a bicycle.”
His father was angry.
“shut up!” He said. “No woman in my house will learn to ride a bicycle”.
A week passed. What his father had heard was true. Women were being taught to ride bicycles. There was a lot of discussion on women learning to cycle in many houses in the villages of Pudukottai district.
In Keeranur too, women have started using bicycles to do many things. One day Shanti said softly to Mallika, “Borrow Radhamma’s old bicycle and bring it here. We are going to learn to ride it.”
When Malar’s father returned, he saw Mallika smiling widely and wondered why.
He said sadly, “Okay…but be careful.”
He looked at Shanti and smiled. “Have you started learning?”
“Yes.” He said. “It makes things a lot easier.”
Malar was busy, dreaming of the future. He saw himself riding a brand new bicycle on a smooth long road to school and college and then who knows? There may also be a rainbow for the clouds.
