What’s in a day !

What's in a day !

“What is women’s day mom?”…..

Few days back my kid asked me this question. And I explained him with my whatsoever ability that it’s a day dedicated to all women in respect, love and appreciation for what they do or contribute to a family or society in large.
But I failed somehow with my words as it was a little obscure and puzzling for him(being a six year old boy). So I had to make it simpler and tell him that since a woman is a mother and gives birth and takes care of the baby and the family like i do with lots of love, we thank them and appreciate them this day. We do the same for you as we acknowledge your effort, when you behave as a good boy.

I didn’t want to bombard his untainted psyche with stuffs like a woman’s fight and struggle for equality and respect in all aspects of society from generations as basic human right is an ongoing process. And the women’s day being one of the nominal manner to reconcile with that. That the battle still continues every walk of life for her to prove to be an equal counterpart. The road ahead is tough and taxing but that every civilisation has to go through this swirl and churn for what it stands for today, for better.

Then it struck in my mind. So,what is it that I do to contribute ? The very first thing I can do for being a mother to a son is to imbibe right set of values; as to respect woman and womanhood in true sense and treat them as equal being. That’s the basic. There are times when everything fails, all we need to do is to keep life simple and start from the basic.

So I say what’s in a day! Everyday is a women’s day if we value a woman everyday as much as we value a man too.

“Mama, Why don’t we celebrate Men’s day?”

That’s a million dollar question. Let me tell you I was not ready for this. But the story does not end here. This one I save it for some other heyday. Until then love and respect, equally and unbiased for all.

I say Hello !

I say Hello !

This will be my first blog. I don’t know, what to write or how to start. There are so many things I want to express and so less I can. I mean practically.
My mind is racing with thoughts, life experiences, feelings subtle, mundane prophecies and what not. Do I start with a quote? Or just a topic, any of my favourites, but then when you want to blog on love, life and whatever…then what you choose to start with. Now comes the writers block…so am I calling myself a writer? What gives me an eligibility of being called a writer. Is it My bachelors in English literature(those three precious college years which I spent learning something which was captivating and engaging to me, not something which will make me financially viable though) or my penchant for writing or things literary.
These days anyone is a writer. Let it be hardcore commercial novelist to a page 3 blogger or an eager FB afficionado posting his thoughts in his walls( me being one in the list some of the times). I have nothing against any of these, it’s just that there were days when people struggled to be a writer. Now we have plenty in terms of channels to express. Plenty has lead to complexity… We read about anything to many things. Some topics as weird as it could get!
Anyhow I would like to look at the brighter side and that is all these makes my knowledge bank richer and richer everyday and that today I have any kind of information one finger tip away.
My only request to my readers is all I want is, to stay as sincere and as true as possible, to you while baring my thoughts and feelings and in this journey of writing – love me, hate me but help me with your sincere feedbacks and to my fellow bloggers to welcome me with a warm heart. Until then keep reading and yes blogging too. Love and care. How could I not end this with a quote. One of my favourites on writers:

“No need to hurry. No need to sparkle. No need to be anybody but oneself.”
Virginia Woolf/ A Room of Ones’s Own.
