She was but today She is……


Suppressed with chains of bondage

a subdued life she lead for centuries

bearing the cruelty inflicted on her

swallowing  the endless flowing tears,

smiles and happiness an elusive dream

resigned to her fate, in silence!

With the eons of time

unravelling the layers of confinement

she emerged slowly out of her cocoon

to feel the warmth of the sunshine

equipped with an armour of education

with confident strides she marches along

 taking on the baton, guiding many lost souls

adapting and embracing myriad roles with aplomb.

Now, when dark grey clouds loom over her,

she fights back  with resilience

charting her own path to victory.

She is the woman of today!

A very Happy Women’s Day to all you beautiful women from across the globe ❤ !

  3. Powerful post Radhika! Society needs to ask why we need days like women’s day. Shouldn’t women need all this respect,rights and love 365 days. But today we feel need to celebrate this day, which you described so beautifully!

    1. Absolutely agree Meenakshi. Women deserve the respect all through the year. I guess all these concepts of celebrating women’s day, mother’s day, father’s day etc is a development of the recent times. Maybe wanting to make them feel all the more special!
