Women's Day Everyday

"Man can never be a woman's equal in the spirit of selfless service with which nature has endowed her", said Mahatma Gandhi. How true?

A woman plays 
many roles in her life.
All with ease.

A woman is a
Mother
Daughter
Sister
Wife
Grandmother
Mother-in-law
Daughter-in-law
Teacher
Working professional
Pilot
Defence officer
Cricketer
Chess grandmaster
you name it-- a woman has done it!

Then, why discriminate women?
Treat them as equal partners in life.
At home
at place of work or 
in society at large.

We men are here because of women- our mother.
Women deserve respect, dignity and honour.
From each of us.
If women prosper, human race prospers.

On the eve of International Women's Day
Ghumakkad would like to say
Women's Day
is not only today
but everyday.

To all the women in this world-
Happy Women's Day!
May your smiles grow.

I end with few pictures with a message.
This one has been created for Women's Day this year. It shows women in sixties rocking together in Kodaikanal.


The next picture comes from Ghumakkad's archives. It was created in 2015 capturing the smiles on women's faces on the bank of river Cauvery in Coorg.


And this last picture shows the importance of educating the girls.


Borrowing from Ghumakkad's post last year on women's daywe would like to end with W.R. Wallace's famous lines:
"The hand that rocks the cradle
Is the hand that rules the world"

Thanks for browsing.
