Women of Substance…is this a word that could be used only for few women or to all around us ?
The collage tries to capture women in different gestures but I hope you all notice it is missing the old women ,the women who has seen most of the moments, who has undergone different pains and who emerges as a winner to many struggles and who many times chose for a voluntary defeat to keep things together. Yes, I am talking about the greatest amongst all ladies “Mother “. At a time we see so many expressions that it is difficult to choose the best every moment every expression is full of life !
The women of substance is not essentially a great leader, an extremely successful women,or someone exceptionally beautiful!
She is also not the one doing sacrifices always or the haughty and arrogant one.
I believe every women who has that tender heart,that selfless love, endurance in all difficult situations. Who laughs at the sparkles of water and does not always need a diamond sparkle to cheer her.
Who cries in the theater and who do not mind licking the fingers while having delicious food. Someone who enjoys the sunrise and he moonlight,yes and she is the one who keeps saving whole year many times to give the loved ones a surprise.
Whose neck is decorated by pearls many time…the pearls I am talking about here are the tears she shelters around her neck when she gives a shoulder to cry on.
Many people may not agree to the fancy words …yeah may be sometimes she is harsh ,deceiving, ruthless. But it happens when she receives all this in her life…she absorbs it .Her tender emotions are ridiculed, walked over,called insane ,impractical. Ah! she picks the rose to express her emotions and she keeps waiting …fumbling the stem getting pricked by thorns of uncertainty. Its not someone’s fault may be the destiny but yes small things affect her much.she closes herself to a shell and lives in a fear of not being reciprocated. People assume she is arrogant proud …what not.
hmm hey ladies cheer up and gentlemen there is no offense !
lets talk of some wonderful things :
The joy of eating the Golgappas…all filled with minty spicy water and the gossips having no beginning ends or logic. When she enjoys the high swings or try do a tough job of heavy engineering.She works or she does not works by default she carries that role of a housewife -IMPLIED.
Whatever the topsy- turvey ways ,she finds her own sky to fly and enjoy the flight …the flight of her dreams little joys within her inner self.
Someone who stop by the road and starts taking a pic fully engrossed or the one who runs behind the ducks and play with them,someone caressing the baby and finding the whole world in him . Yes they all do have some substance ..does the world has heart to see…does it has a heart to respect…does it sees her as a human…does it feel her heart beat.
It anyways shall not make a big difference because woman will be the same whatever she is if the world acknowledges or not makes a difference for the world…they miss or they get something precious.
When she laughs she may be undergoing tremendous pain but she still spreads joy…share the joys the happiness, warmth of that affection …
On this W omen’s Day I do not wish to give a message like … be strong be successful be confident.
I just say be yourself , enjoy your emotions and feelings ,enjoy thy birth as a women no other life may enable you to experience life so wonderfully as being born as a Woman.
