This buzz is clear, we are heading towards 8th March which is celebrated as International Women’s Day, in-fact many countries have even declared this day as their National Holiday. Great isn’t it?
Women who not only excelled in their traditional role of housekeepers, but also have challenged the whole wide world with her multi-tasking at professional as well as personal domains. Today, the dimension of women’s role has crossed all the set thresholds and allows her to foray into various diversified goals. I won’t be wrong in calling the women the back-bone of our social structure…. after all we are the creators and nurturers as well.
….coimg back to vibrancy of Women’s Day ceebrations…. Do you know why the Women’s Day is celebrated? IWD (International Women’s Day) The answer is: “International Women’s Day is annually held on March 8 to celebrate women’s achievements throughout history and across nations. It is also known as the United Nations (UN) Day for Women’s Rights and International Peace.” – Source Google
Here, through my BLOG I would like to express my gratitude and salute all those wonderful women who inspired me… be it thorough their wisdom, vibrancy, teachings, or simple thoughts. I am Thankful to all of you for being an inspiration & guide me when I needed it the most.
The one who brought me to this world – Mother:
She comes from a background of Civil Servants family, been to and learned from many different places, she is highly educated, was a working professional from National Capital when got married to Dad. Family, relationships, responsibilities, chipped her wings & held her flight but she accepted the same with grace and never whined. With my arrival her focus shifted from ‘bahu’ of the house to a dotting mother. From the very beginning of my childhood, she taught me to ‘DREAM BIG’, and then focus all your energies to achieve those dreams. Her words are still fresh in my mind – to never loose your identity. I am Thankful to you mom, for being my guiding angle.
Another mother who adopted me as her own – SaasuMaa (Mother-in-Law):
Absolutely contrast to my mother; she comes from a wealthy rural background where educating girls was the least of the priorities; then, girls were trained in house hold chores of cooking, stitching, religious works, etc. For her husband & family is above any other known thing to mankind. But what strikes my cord is, the childlike zeal that she has to learn more and more. Even at this age (or I should say even after being my sasu-ma) she doesn’t shy away from grasping knowledge, even if it’s coming from me 😉 I salute her for this ever-ready urge of gaining knowledge and learning.
All my wonderful friends out there:
Life is dull and boring without friends; being a true LEO that I am … friends are my bread and butter. Over the years, from school to college, from office to motherhood, from kid’s school to blogging…. God has been real kind on me that I got the chance to meet some wonderful women in ONE life, who inspired me in lot many ways and also marked their positive impression on my heart & soul.
Advocate Lakshmi you have taught me self-restraint… I am all barrels jumping kind of a person, but Lax Thanks for being my anchor. Smita Sugathan: you are a true brave heart darling, you inspire me lady. It will be a real task for people to guess the struggle you had (or still having) been through; credit goes to your ever smiling face. Divya Jain you are another name of resilience & perseverance, you taught me that if one really wishes to they can overcome any situation head held high with pride. Kanchan Advani: you taught me to be positive even when in odds…positivism itself open doors to rescue.
