Happy Women’s day to all my friends. As any celebration remains incomplete without everyone joining in, so let’s mark the occasion together. Let’s raise the proverbial toast for the health, happiness and well being of all. For all my women friends out there, I specially wish for more power, love, wisdom, patience and perseverance to run the journey called life with more aplomb and effciency, side by side to their menfolks.
Friends if we compare ourselves with the medieval times, womem folks have come a long and arduous way to establish her credibility and importance. At that time, her place was in the andar mahal (inner sanctum) and men’s place was at the baithak khana(sitting room) surrounded by their other men friends. Women would only see their men at the time of meals and the conversation at that time was mainly limited to the matriarch and older ladies of the houseI. The younger lot got to talk to their husbands only in the darkness of the night when everybody retired for the day.
Friends, we are really fortunate to become two equal wheels, along with men, in running a household and taking decision together. As I earlier said that it’s mostly the women’s prerogative as a mother to mould her children’s personality and the way of thinking right from the infancy. She can inculcate the moral discipline and the idea of gender equality and mutual respect in her kids, so that they grow on to become responsible citizens.
We can become a source of strength to men as mother, daughter, sister, wife or a friend. It’s indeed a woman’s selfless love and dedication which binds the men to reciprocate the feeling.
As women have mostly active professions alongside handling the home affairs, I wish them more strength and success in negotiating all her responsibilities with equal elan. I also want to remind them to share the duties and chores with men to avoid getting exhausted or burnt out. And yes, don’t forget to find some me time to rejuvenate yourself. Keep the woman in you remain bubbly and youthful as ever whatever age-group you happen to belong.
Happines, health and peace to you all!!
Adieu for now.
