The colors of sunset,
Enthralls my mind.
Like an unknown current.
Jittering my soul.
As the sky is turning red.
My shades turn grey.
Am i like the flower,
That blooms with the sun.
And sleeps when the sun is off.
Am i not the moon lover.
Who also shines in the moonlight.
I sat wondering.
Yet, unable to decipher my thoughts.
I let it fly away,
Like the birds heading home,
When it is sunset.

Perfect morning and I am as usual into the daily chores. But again what was so special about the day? Nothing, but it was International Women’s Day, and it is all perfectly normal for me. Like always, I posted something for Women’s day, and all wished me the same. I too wished the same to all.
But then I realized, do we women actually feel the speciality of this day?
Do we feel that we are being especially accepted or just accepted at least?
Why do women I know, feels quite related to contents posted on inequality, gender gap, no financial independence, security and safety, emotional abuse and much more violence?
Are we truly celebrating the day with a whole heart or a hole in the heart?
Dont we all truly feel the pain of injustice happening to all the women in the world or maybe anything related to a human being?
I do not claim that all women are oppressed, but many are.
There are child rapes happening, rapes and abuse and much more, but never given justice.
Don’t you think that these injustices happening around need to be curbed for the good?
Why we celebrate this Women’s day
when most women around us are not even valued for their gender?
when there are numerous child rape cases happening and only the women are blamed for it?
When there is domestic abuse occurring, but again the women do silently suffer without hesitance?
When women themselves are blaming their own kind, how can even man support it?
When the gender gap is created by women itself.
how can justice prevail, when the women are not into it together. If I say I would blame the women in the society for downgrading themselves to the level of being treated like trash.
The mothers teach their daughters to silently suffer marital rape and be in a relationship, where they suffer a lot in the name of society. The mothers teach their daughters to do household chores and ask the boys to sit on the couch and enjoy snacking. When the women themselves are not confident enough to think better of themselves and blame the other independent women to be bitch who never take care of the family, she is bounded to, it is indeed a big war among the same breed.
But again, women need not have any ones approval to be what she wants. All she needs is to be accepted as who she is irrespective of all factors that categorize her as a woman. Let her be her….and he be him. Why mix coffee and tea as they both have their own flavours and taste.
Whole in whole, I feel like a complete woman in my own way. For me, being whole means I do not need an identity as a mom, or a daughter or a sister .. all I need is the identity of a whole woman, not a tag line that lingers around me.
And someday I shall achieve it, no matter what. But again, once i attain it, all the identity that lingered with me will shatter away, because, those roles I carried on till then need me in the way they want, not how I wanted myself to be.
Till then, Women’s day is yet another day in my life.
To all Women who feel complete in their life
Happy Women’s Day !!
Do let me know in the comments, how you feel complete. I believe everyone has their own reasons. Even men can comment, what’s your idea of a complete woman.
