Good morning/Good afternoon/Good evening my friends, wherever you are! This 11:00pm. 6thth March, 2013, Wednesday in India and I'm here with my feelings, thoughts and dreams to share with you!
Friends, on the day after tomorrow (8th March) is International Women's Day. Being a woman, I usually celebrate the day; better say, my husband pamper me with all on that day! This year, I’m very much unhappy and don’t want to celebrate the day! I want to ask a question to all of you? Are the women really happy in the world? Are we get as much respect, we deserve? I think, in India, there is a big contradictory about it! In India, women are compared with Goddess ‘Durga’, the eternal mother, the symbol of power; whereas, in many villages, women are killed for ‘Dowry’! Many parents abort their child because of female gender! Before 3 months of the International Women's Day, 16th December, 2012; in the capital-city Delhi, a 23-year-old girl (physiotherapy intern) was beaten and gang raped in a bus in which she was travelling with her male companion. The girl died from her injuries thirteen days later while undergoing emergency treatment in Singapore. Not only that, after 2days of this incident, there was a repetition of the story play in the same city! Luckily, the victim is alive here! Friends, is that the so called Modern age? Is this the civilization? Are the people civilized, cultured who create this type of situations?
The UN declares an International Women's Day theme for 2013. It is “A promise is a promise: Time for action to end violence against women”. Yes; this the time to action! I think, this is the time for the all women to prove the spark that we have! We are WOMEN. We are Mother, Daughter, Wife, Sister. We are a Person. We are Strong, Smart, Crafty. We are Passionate, Courageous, Generous. We are Action, Emotion, Devotion. We have Hope, Beauty, Power. We have a Brain and we know how to use it. We Give You LIFE. We give you RESPECT, LOVE, GRATITUDE. We believe in you. We will nurture you, fight for you. And, we deserve nothing less from you.
Friends, the International Women’s Day, celebrated on 8th March, is a universal day for all women around the world. It endows them with a sense of honor, dignity and self respect for being the person that they are. This day marks a celebration of the economic, social, cultural and political achievements made by women over the years. Before the day, I request to all in the world, please think about the women by heart. A woman’s essence lies in her innate ability to care, love and sacrifice for the other. She plays an all-enveloping character of a mother, daughter, wife and sister as a friend, nurturer, guide and partner from time to time. Emotional and vulnerable, sometimes erratic, sometimes serene, she displays a wonderful range of emotions from being patient to being extremely courageous in times of crisis! So please, be kind to women for your own sake!
That’s all for today! Take care of your families and yourselves! Have a good day/ afternoon/evening/night! Namaskar.
