It brings me immense pleasure to share that I, along with 24 other WOMEN bloggers are celebrating #9daysofwomanhood throughout Navratri. I thank my friend and co-bloggerAnubhuti Sen Sharma for introducing me. I am a huge fan of her blog Cries and Laughter where she talks about her journey with her little one. Here is what she thinks of todays prompt.
I would like to introduce my readers to my friend & co-blogger Neha Sharma Her blog talks about interesting parenting mantras and her journey with her son NEMIT at Growing with Nemit and her blog about the prompt is here
The Prompt for today is ” Being a Woman in India in 2017 – a Positive take”
Usually these days whenever I hear the newspaper scrolling up and landing in my balcony, a thought crosses over my head, “what next today!! , who is raped?!! Where is an infant girl found dead or where dowry burnt a bride. ”
As I was sipping my tea, sub consciously looking for the tragic news somewhere, one of 3 year old woke up and came to me, “MOM!! When is dad returning, is he not missing his dolls?” I hugged her tight to calm down and then I realised what a blessing it is to be a girl in this century. My husband is away for work and all he is missing at the other edge of the world are his little girls. Dads these days are so involved and attached with the kids.
Although there are so many more things like:
1. Win it with a cute innocent face…
The moment we see something going against our hearts, all we need is a cute face gesture and deep pretty eyes. Tadaa..!! its done exactly how we like it.
2. Smile and world is all yours…
Bollywood talks about it, Men die for it and even oldies and kids fall for it. One smile and thats all we need to take over any battle. Well, truth is a smile is the most beautiful thing on a face. It heals a broken heart, it comforts a sad soul and it brightens up even a dead day.
3. DADS can go to any level to make their dolls happy:
Yes..!! This is see everyday in my house. Be it getting his nails painted, Getting piggy tails on his head or even posing wth pouts, my husband is ready to go any level to be with his girls and making them happy. Lets face the truth girls and daddy love is like most pretty thing to see and admire.
4. We can do anything on the name of FEMINISM and Women Empowerment:
Feminism is a term gearing up a lot in past few years and trust me, we can do whatever we want under its cover. From partying late night to beating up a man – its all empowerment and feminism of course. Beware you GUYS..!!
5. NAVARATRI n we are literally the GODESSES:
Well i have been super excited always through the NAVRATRIS and now so are my girls. All elders bowing down , gifting and all those Maa Durga feel is so empowering itself. The kids learn about traditions with much more interest as they know they are earning it too.
6. Gone are Cinderella Days
Girls are brought up in entirely different ways today. No more cinderellas crying for a night out and no more beuties wiating for the prince. Its the time of ANNA n ELSA who can win over everything without the Men holding them eeven.
Well!! even though the day started with heavy heart, we still managed to take it through with counting out blessings. I have always loved to be a girl and so i am raising my girls. being proud, confident and happy for what privileged times they are born in.
India Today is far better country for a girl. We are heard, talked to and have an opinion to present.
