Owing to less time I surfed through some of the surveys online to check how happy or proud a woman was about being a woman. There was one article titled “Hear us roar”. I was speechless at the title itself. The article began with a beautiful analogy between women and the lioness as follows:
Although the lion is often called the King of the Jungle, lion society is actually ruled by its females. Lionesses are the ones primarily responsible for providing sustenance for their entire pride. She is a natural leader.
Just 3 to 4 lines but my mind could map them with the current lifestyle of woman.
Those days, are no more when woman were meant just for household works or bestowed with the suit of sole helper or a kind of slave for men. Woman was completely dependant on man for all the needs. For the old generations that have always seen male gender as the one that is honored or endorsed to go to school, work, girls are still the ones meant to be caged inside the four walls of a house. I still hear my grand parents, mumbling that females are not meant for studying more or working at office and on and on. It was during the ancient generation that the woman was completely portrayed as sole caretaker and helper, who is not allowed or entitled for any freedom.
We are lucky today; women have come out of such barriers or inequalities and are now exploring the world and flying in beautiful colors in all the fields. Right from the base role of Mother up to a president, women have walked around various characters in the theater of life.
Having entered my professional life for quiet some period now, I feel contented for being so independent and able to manage myself well at home and office. It’s almost 4 years now since I have stepped out of my house and there was hardly any time I ever felt ok! This task cannot be done by a woman…and that I cannot do it on my own. As the famous adage says “Where there is a will there is a way”….It’s very true and Woman of today are so much daring and willing for any task. When I was with my parents I used to see my Dad or brother run around for all the work….Now the scene is different…..
Woman rock at all stages of life. They come into the world as beautiful little daughters’, to grow up to pretty girls, and then transform into Wife. Now a day before or even in parallel to the segment of Wife, women have established themselves as successful professionals in various fields. Then comes the most beautiful phase of life for women – yes she wears the armor of Mother and then aunt, grandmother so on.
Presently when I see my little sister and few friends playing the beautiful role of Mother, working in nice firm, being so independent and managing both their work in office and at home I am pleased. I feel so proud for being a woman.
To summarize as stated above “Woman is a natural leader”. When hunting, each lioness plays to her strengths. Woman adjusts her individual role in the hunt depending on the prey to ensure capture for the pride. She can adapt to suit the task at hand. Like a lioness nurses any cub, indiscriminate of whether that cub is her own Women are the one who will give with the greater good in mind and can adorn themselves with any armor at any time as required.
Certainly it is the right time for celebration of Woman and we women must definitely realize the significance of Woman power and empower them self more with all the freedom/female more they have now and sustain as the best creation of almighty ever.
