And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom.
— Anaiis Nin

She hated going home. Her heart would sink and her stomach knot with every step closer to her home. What sate would it be in…….what mood would he be in. Which mask would he be wearing.

Padma’s life had be come a prison, locked inside by fear of the one she loves, of the one who guilts her into forgiveness. Of the one who would now make her home a prison.

Only through the courage to follow her own path can she free herself.

The Eagle is the story of Padma’s road to find her strength. Too long has she made excuses for her boyfriend, Jake. Succumb to his emotional blackmail and forgiven his bullying. She has let him imprison herself in her own emotions. “It’s his up bringing”, “the good days are great”, “ there’s someone nice in all that”. But all these excuses can not take away the burning blackness she feels inside.

But recently Padma has discovered a serenity, she discovers a place where there is only herself as she wants herself to be.  A place where she can forget. But through her practice of yoga Padma finds the strength and desire to take control of her life and free herself.
