Daughter, sister, wife, mother, sister in law, daughter in law, aunt,mother in law, grandmother,great grandmother…in whatever stage of life they are….they are, have been and always will be venerated world over. Be it Mata Durga or Mother Mary, women have always been venerated,respected and worshipped.
Introduced by the German lady Clara Zetkin in 1910 , started in communist and socialist Russia soon after woman were entitled to universal suffrage in 1917 , Woman’s Day has come to stay. It is celebrated as international women’s day on March 8th every year and devoted to celebrating the empowerment, success and achievements of women.
Well, mother’s are said to be representing the Gods on earth as God himself couldn’t be everywhere……..God too chose woman to represent him as he knew best, that only a woman is a complete human with all the criteria of love, affection, intelligence, diligence, never tiring and never complaining , hence it was she who could replace god in the homes of mankind.
Then why was it that we required a woman’s day to understand the importance of women. Simple….man never understood what God had decided….he always looked upon women as his subordinate, inferior, incapable, for this satisfied his ego. Women, the world over were relegated to household chores and never given similar rights as men. Equality was lacking for thousands of years untill it took some women to think and demand equal rights. Man of course didn’t yield easily, it took centuries for them to terms with the fact that woman are definitely superior to them and yet are only asking for equality.
Today woman has equalled or even surpassed man in every sphere, science, medicine,sports,space travel, politics, academics……they do not lag anywhere. So let’s celebrate their achievements, let’s clap for them, let us permit them to walk shoulder to shoulder with us, let no man denigrate or insult god’s biggest creation..woman.
On a signing out note……. I understand that only 27 countries in the world celebrate international women’s day by declaring it as a national holiday…..when will the others follow suit……India too should at the earliest.
