Some thoughts on Women’s Day

8th of March is accepted as women’s day all over the world. This day may be
interpreted by every woman as a time to take stock of her achievements of the past
and her resolutions for the future.
As a senior citizen with all the experience of the past, I would like to mention
here a few points. First of all , I feel that we should not lose our identity as women in our society. Writers and poets have described a woman as a picture of grace, beauty , compassion, modesty and lastly as a symbol of strength and endurance.
There is no need for women to compete with men. We are biologically made different and have certain responsibilities endowed upon us by nature. We need to respect our opposite sex, men as companions in order to raise happy families thereby creating a happier and healthier society. This seems to be the need of the hour. If we try to go against nature the consequences are likely to be disastrous. Feminists and other modern activists may not agree with this thought today. The realization is bound to come later on in life. Life cannot be played back like a CD backward and forward.After completing these responsibilities they can always take up the other challenges. It has been proved beyond doubt that women can reach any heights they wish to.
Motherhood, is a most beautiful experience for all women. Once, when I visited a maternity home I saw a poster on the wall with a picture of a mother and a baby below which was inscribed these following lines, “Mother at whose breasts humanity is nourished and in whose lap civilizations are cradled “ What a great and noble job! Society and the whole of humanity are looking up and looking forward to you for this great job. Educated housewives need not feel guilty or not useful, as they are the ones contributing the maximum by making use of their education in the right way. Enjoy your family, your children, their little pranks and innocence. Do not miss the first eye to eye contact with your baby’s first smile, followed by all the milestones like the first step taken, first word spoken etc.. These precious and happy moments once gone will never come back to you.
Lastly, I feel that all our relationships should be based on sincerity and honesty, as it is a very simple formula to follow whether it it is friendship, marriage or career. A girl child grows up to be an educated member of the family, later on becomes a wife, mother, and grand mother and it continues. Finally she too becomes a senior citizen like us. A family without a woman is incomplete and a society without women does not exist

Hi,

I came across these articles for the first time. I personally help clean waste in my locality with support of a group of people. We do this by informing municipalty about the garbage that is littered around in our park like large are due to food vendors and people eating there. Nothing has been done in this regard here in Motera area of Ahmedabad. Municipalty send people for cleaning, but they hardly clean the space. It is not about cleaning everyday, but about not making it dirty by simply disposing their waste properly. I was thinking if we had a larger association then we would be able to reach authorities in this regard and make rules and regulations strict around littering any place.
Also, they keep saying we can not ask industries to shut down- those manufacturing plastic products. But, then what do we do, keep waiting till we finally die a painful death? It simply needs to be shut-down, may be take up another business.
So, much needs to be around this cleaning and keeping our environment clean including approving construction only where necessary. There is a ton to do to help the environment.
What can I do make it happen? do you have any suggestion or a plan? I could help spread the word so much more that it already is. Also, I bear personal expense for these cleaning services sometimes, I don't mind that. My current plan is to plant trees in the area I'm taking about. Let me know we could do something together for this cause.
