Have you ever noticed,while remembering GOD, your head automatically raises, you stare into the sky and close your eyes as if HE is up there, listening and witnessing everything….
When I was a child, I too believed that GOD lives in the sky in an invisible huge form and from there, takes care of his children on Earth. Well back then, I didn’t have a slightest idea that his all children are not ‘equal’. Although he gave us all, the equal liberty of praying but only man was privileged to enter many of his earthly residences.
Now that I saw it myself, couldn’t help but share it with you people. Remember, I am not judging anyone here but in the end, please tell me, how justified is it?
Recently visited a place nearby. It’s a temple which boasts of making you sin-free but offer is available only for Males. Yo man! Do whatever wrong you feel like, for you have a place to clean your linen in the end! But wait, did I say that the same temple bars females from entering its premises!
Now that’s ironical. This is the land where a woman astronaut like ‘Kalpana Chawla‘ was born who dared to enter ‘space’ (Supposedly the God’s abode) and see, on this very land, females are denied such a very basic thing, even today. Imagine the rocket is launched and as the astronauts are about to enter the space, and suddenly a tagline appears ‘Women are not allowed to enter the space‘.
Its more funny than sad. I don’t think that the women are dying to meet the GOD living inside these temples but I sometimes wonder that who gave man, this power to decide how a woman is supposed to behave? I mean I never heard any one barring males from entering the temple of a Goddess!
They have secured their place there as well.
and this is what you call… a job, well done!
The line in Green says, “Entry of Women is prohibited inside the temple”
Moment to die for
You are by my side
In mere disbelief
I looked in your eyes
Are you real or
I am after a mirage,
For I’ve never seen you
So close to touch; to feel.
My heart sings joyously
I wish this moment to stop
This gaze should freeze.
I’ll never let go of this hold
Never blink my eyes
For I worry
Worry you’ll leave
Never to come back.
Soon everything will fade
And I’ll be deserted once again.
To my surprise
I am smiling,
However ephemeral it was
The moment was ours
You were there,
You were there….
One thing you need to know about ‘me’ — I have guts and lots of them! Wait wait…I am not the only one saying it !
It’s my birthday today so I happen to be a ‘Virgo’ and here I am giving you an account on what a Virgo woman is like?
Its not composed by me obviously. I have saved this page in my ‘lappy’ since the year 2010. Today, I have a strong feeling to share it and what an occasion !
So here it goes… Being gutsy doesn’t mean she is not as shy and as reserved as she seems to be. It’s just that she can do anything and everything for the people she loves. By love, she mean real love, no other type of love exists for her. A Virgo female is a complete woman! She has all the charms and tricks that any other female has, but she is not weak. Infact, she has quite a determination and can do anything if she sets her mind to it.
She will be completely devoted and loyal to you in a relationship. Still, if it doesn’t seems to be working, she will severe all the ties and become as cold as the North Pole. Virgo women’s characteristics profile is an odd mix of emotions and practicality, romance and common sense. When they fall in love, they show such extreme passion and intensity that only few other women can. Making them fall in love is, however, an entirely different task. They will demand total perfection from you, even though they may fall short in that arena.
It’s better to get used to their critical nature. A Virgo girl believes that she is extremely efficient and organized and what is more annoying is, that she is right. She is a stickler for time and it’s better not to be late when you are meeting her. She will not break the new, expensive vase when she is upset, but she can be very demanding and fussy. If the fault is yours, admit that you are wrong and say it while handing her the flowers. Don’t even try to argue, or she will lose her temper again.
It is better to leave her alone for sometime and she will cool again. On the other hand, a Virgo woman will find it very hard to accept that she is wrong. The fact is, most of the time she’s not. When you are courting her as well as after you get married, it is advisable to mind your manners. She cannot tolerate someone using abusive language, coming late, dressing sloppily, not minding table manners, etc. It’s better to brush up your vocabulary too. She will not cling to you, nor will she become totally aloof.
She is also very good with finances and extravagance is not one of her personality traits. A Virgo female cannot stand public displays of affection and it is better to be subtle in this area. Her taste is very good and her intellect quite developed. If you are trying to woo her, take her to places like theatre, art gallery, etc. Just like a typical Virgo, she is prone to worrying about things too much and she will do your part of the job too. She is very much attached to the ground and prefers to live in the real world.
You let a Virgo female, do her part of making things seem just perfect and she will keep you entertained with all her feminine charms. She is very sensitive and her feelings are pretty fragile, but she will become exceedingly strong when you need her support. With kids, she will be very considerate and you will never see them running around in their underclothes. She will be gentle, but firm and will demand complete discipline from them. Even though a Virgo woman is very critical, she will not take criticism very nicely. It never works the other way round for her.
The reason for this is that she is as aware of her own imperfections as she is of yours. So, she doesn’t need you to remind her of her own shortcomings every now and then. Instead of fretting over her perfectionism, you should feel blessed to have such a charming female who never makes your house look like a garbage dump. Your toast will never get burnt and your coffee will always taste just perfect. She has a witty side too and when she laughs, it seems like the ringing of little bells, doesn’t it!
So, how cool is that? I totally agree, what do you think?
You talk about women empowerment all the time but are you ACTUALLY prepared to accommodate women ‘with power’? Well, my answer is… Not really.
Since time immemorial, you have considered woman “an icon” of selfless love, care, silence, sacrifice and forbearance. You still want to see her the same. She has been gifted with countless virtues by Nature; and has, herself, acquired many. She has mastered multitasking and possesses great managerial skills making her a fine group member as well as an excellent leader.
You say she is weak ‘emotionally’ but in my opinion, that is the very basis of her enormous strength. You say she is weak ‘physically’ then I say physical strength is just a matter of will; want it? Attain it.
Do you acknowledge and appreciate a woman’s capabilities? No, you don’t. You are always sceptical.
Undeniably, you have enjoyed a dominant position in the family and society since ages and may be that’s why, today you are finding it difficult to leave your luxurious niche.You might be trying but one thing is sure; you are not yet prepared to follow the commands from her as a ‘Head’. Because what little I observe, tells a different story.
I witness you turning irate on being asked for reasons by HER. I see you nodding in face and bitching behind. I see you doubting her capabilities to be a head. I see you comparing her to your so-called ‘ideal head’ (a man). I see you criticize her for being comparatively more considerate of her family. I see you disrespecting her suggestions and gestures. I see you making fun of her for trusting other women. I see you getting frustrated because she questions your work. In short I see you in complete disagreement with HER.
And you talk about what… Women empowerment!
Forget empowering HER; first go, get your attitude right. Come out of this age-old notion of considering women ‘trivial’. Remember woman is capable of everything; Are YOU?
You better raise your guards. Either walk along or watch her move ahead because, SHE indeed… is moving fast.
