Many times I have heard of 'India versus England', Kangaroo versus kiwi' and so on but to my utter surprise, topic of "men versus women" is on top in our society.
Can anyone explain me how the two human species are different from each other?. If we talk of anatomy of the two, indeed we are different but otherwise we are equal and each others' strength.
It is a futile effort to prove our gender superior or equal. Equality or anything else lies in our head only. The day we will start respecting each others' wishes, dreams, desires, virtues, caliber and personal space, everything can be set right.
Quite often I wonder which one is bigger or more significant-
My Mother or my Father?
My sister or my brother?
My daughter or my son?
My friend Sanjay or my friend Sarika?
My husband or myself?
Male bloggers or the female ones?
Dr. Manmohan Singh is more capable or our president Pratibha Patil?
Kalpana Chawla or Rakesh Sharma?
Dr Divya or Dr Hiten?
I tried hard but failed to see anyone lesser than the other one by an iota even.
Why these comparisons always? Can't we accept each other in totality with their natural attributes and capacities. Cannot we live peacefully together? After all we are sharing the same planet earth. Why do we need to prove that we are from different planets Mars and Venus, every time.
" Unity is strength ". Hope we all are aware of this. Why can't we believe in this simple proverb. A wife and husband together constitutes a beautiful relationship. All the relationships are just offshoots. When we look at our parents, we always feel proud of them and see them as our role models. Can't we be like them?.
If a father takes lot of pains to give the best education and wishes best for his daughter, then the same should be carried forward by a husband as well for the same girl who is his wife now. Likewise a girl who always adored her mother and respected her for being so loving with her father must give all the respect and love to her husband .
It is quite natural that a well qualified man looks for an equally qualified woman as his spouse. So he must prepare his mind that he must adapt himself with the trivial troubles arising in looking after the kids and household chores if she is also working. Share every responsibility together.
Nine months of gestation is assigned to women, but a man must wait eagerly to look after the baby for the next nine months and share the responsibility equally. Is it
a big deal guys?. Men and women can easily contribute in each others domain. Just a little will is required.
Women must boycott reservations in all spheres. They should not be lured by such mirages. Reservations are outright insults of women folk. If we have to move ahead, we ought to prove our worth by our actions .
" A woman who rocks the cradle can rule the world also ". It is proven now.
Time is changing , so are the people. Let us welcome the changes with a positive mindset. We cannot achieve anything by being bitter with the other half.
Respect each others personal space and give importance to small-small desires your spouse has.
Being a woman, my appeal to all the wonderful men is to extend your support to your wives in fulfilling their dreams. Make their dreams come true.
She expects silently...
