A woman don’t need anyone to strengthen her,she is a symbol of strength in herself.
A woman’s love is unconditional you can’t compare it with anyone. As we all study from our childhood that a woman is a support system of any family, she has the strength to give life. She has a power to change a building to home. There is no need to remind you her importance in our life. She play many roles at a time as a mother,daughter, wife, sister and many more and guess what she play each and every role effortlessly. But in our society she is still a source of getting your work done and nothing more than this. If you say that in cities she walk shoulder to shoulder with man, than its true no doubt indeed. But what about those rural or backward classes who still treat her like a slave, a thing to have fun. She is not provided with the respect which she deserves to be given. I on my personal enquiry came across many such cases where man leave her wife after marriage and he himself go for job in cities and never came back. And there his wife wait for him with his 4 to 5 kids and there he might be starting a new family.
But one thing I didn’t understand how can someone give such a great sacrifice for a person whom she hardly know for few days. Means she spend her whole life raising his children….means why ??? She would have start a new life but no she wait for him her whole life and not only this she adorn herself everyday on her husband’s name her whole life. I don’t know from where she gather so much of courage???
Still didn’t get any answer. I think this is what a woman is her whole life she do so much but she never ask for a single thing accept a little love.
Let me tell you a story of Gautama Buddha. Have ever think what happen to Buddha’s wife and son that he left behind that night. Vikram bhattachary write about it…
He left her in the middle of the night,the night their son was born. When she heard the news she was devasted.
Yet she did not complain but her life lost all meaning. The only reason for her to live now was her son. She wanted him to grow up to be a man that the world would look up to.
Her friend and relatives came around and asked her to forget about the man who left her and started life again.
They asked her to marry again but she refuse.she was young & beautiful & suitors queued up outside her door, but she refused each one of them.
Then one fine day he came back!
He stood in front of her and she could hardly remember him as a man who had left her.”They call you the Buddha now?”she asked gently.
“I heard they do” he answered in a clam fashion.
“What does it mean?” She further inquired.
“I think it means the enlightened one,a knower” he informed.
She smiled and then a silence “I suppose we have learned something. Your lessons O Buddha,will make the world richer in spirit, but my lesson will unfortunately remain largely unknown.”
She reflected deeply….
“And what lesson is that?The Buddha probed.
Her eyes sparkled with unshed tears.”That a courage woman does not need anyone to complete her…..
SHE IS COMPLETE ON HER OWN”
God!!! this story always mesmerises me every time I read it. I don’t think another example can define a woman’s strength better than this.
Salute to womanhood… for every woman spirit whether it is yashodhra or any other woman.
