God created man first but then he rectified his mistake by creating a masterpiece, ” The Woman”.
When you hear the word woman what comes to your mind?
Beauty, strength, courage? What else?
Woman are the corner stone of every society. Our culture treats them as goddess and states that paradise lies under her feet. So what exactly is a woman?
lets check out a day from a woman’s life.
Raina 35 year old single parent was having a usual day. she was ready to set off for her days toil. No sooner did she left the threshold of the house, her phone rang. She picked it up “hello mom”
“Hello Raina, your brother is dead. You must come now.” Her mother sobbed
In few minutes she was in her brother’s house, crying profusely and comforting her mother.
Her phone rang again. ” Hello Ma’am, the judge has arrived. Please come, you are our last hope.” Pleaded her client.
Being a criminal lawyer was her biggest descision of life and the only reason for her divorce. Three years of multiple threats made her husband insecure and they broke off but their daughter felt more safe with her mom than with her dad.
“I am coming don’t worry.” She replied on the phone.
Raina’s mother looked at her in sullen dismay. “Raina, its your brother’s funeral. I insist you not to go for work today.”
She held her mother’s arms and said with drenching tears, “Mom, my brother’s death should not be the cause for an innocent life to suffer in prison. I must go.”
She rushed to the court like a thunderbolt and defended her client with that same old vigour. Next she went to recieve her daughter from school amd before she could tell her about her uncle’s sudden demise, the 10 year old girl cried with joy. “Mom, Today is the grand final of my singing competition and you have to come in the evening but first wish me good luck.”
Raina’s tongue lost its strength. She said nothing to make her smile fade away. Her daughter was the only beacon of joy in her life. Choosing her words carefully, she said, “You will win, my dear. I have some work and I will be late but promise me that you will perform your best.”
Leaving her daughter among the cacophony of the crowd, Raina left for her brother’s house once again.
10 am …she cried beside her brother’s corpse
12 noon ..she defended her client in the court room
6 pm … she attended her daughters competition..
Only her wrist watch knew her day’s struggle.
W. E. B. Dubois said, “there is no force equal to a woman determined to rise.” Its true but some people agrue that well behaved woman never made history. Breaking rules is what what world expects from a strong woman ? 42 year old African-American lady Rosa Parks, was not breaking rules when she refused to give up her bus seat. She only set a higher level of thinking and this resulted in overnight cause of civil rights movement in US. Mother Teresa or Malala Yousafzai were not rule breakers but standard setter.
Dear girls, be the type of woman that makes other girls step their game up. Aim to be known as an intelligent woman and a loving woman and a woman who teaches by being.
Remember the lady who tried to committ suicide in her early twenties, then later diverted all her attention towards her passion. Writing. Her work was rejected by many publishers. Yes you guessed it right. J. K . Rowling. Today we all know that Harry Potter is an Global brand whose net worth is $15 billion. Her story teaches us never to give up.
Last week I urged my friend to watch the movie after she suffered a massive heartbreak and she was so enchanted that She called me up in the middle of the night and said, “I dumped him. No matter what he thinks. I wasn’t raised by my parents for 20 years to be torn down by a boy in twenty minutes.”
One will prompt that ‘what is a queen without a king?” Well historically speaking, more powerful. Queen Elizabeth 1 was a lady with fierce intellect and courtly charm. She was one of the Englands longest serving monarch who restored stability and guess what! She did so without a man by her side.
Dear ladies we cant be a queen in a democratic republic but all I demand from you is to master your craft. Exceed your potential. Tap into your soul power and most importantly fall in love with your purpose.
Stop comparing yourself with your counterparts. Mary Wolstonecraft rightly said “I do not wish women to have power over men, but over themselves.” Today we are busy proving that women can do things which men can but the truth is women were sent to do anything which men could not.
In this big bad world of phonies, politeness has become so rare that people mistake it for flirtation. You ask a pen from your collegue and they end up giving you their phone number. Dear people, being polite or modern doesn’t mean that a girl is easy. The length of her skirt doesn’t decide her character neither the length of her veil limits her education qualifications and her beauty does not dwells in flawless skin or perfect curves. Her beauty begins the moments she decides to be herself. Beauty isnt a gift, its a choice, a lifestyle and an attitude. Beauty is you and you are special. Your value doesn’t decrease based on someones inability to see your worth. Its ok if people dont like you. you dont have to be perfect to inspires others, let people get inspired by how you deal with your inperfections.
And Dear men, if you want a strong daughter who can take a stand and fight this bad real world? well start with choosing a strong woman as your wife. Only a lioness can raise another. And yes be a man enough to marry a strong woman. They are hard to love but for weak men. And feel blessed to have her and if you dont feel blessed she is not yours to keep she is another man’s blessing.
At last I would like to qoute few lines from the song “Miracles” by Coldplay
“Hey you could be someone special
You got fire in your eyes, I have seen heaven inside
You’ll go further than we’ve ever gone.
In you i see someone special
You got bright in your brain you can break through the chains
You’ll go higher than we’ve ever gone……just turn it on.”
