Woman – Just Look at the sky


look at the sky

no matter what they say

that’s where you belong

let your spirit soar

your ambitions fly

your fertility is a gift

don’t allow it to become a chain

that binds your dreams

take pride in it

flaunt it, savor it

but don’t let anyone else

own it

you are capable

of chalking your own paths

of making your own decisions

leading your own life

your ability to love is a boon

Don’t let it become a bane

to love is to give

but also to take

put others first if you must

but be aware of the stakes

and know always

that there is a choice

a choice that’s yours alone to make

don’t let anyone tell you

there is no other way


you are a river

you cut your own course

you are the wind

no one tells you where not to blow

you are the mountain

unrelenting, majestic and bold


be fearless

there is nowhere you can’t tread

and if ever

the task daunts you

if ever you feel restrained

just look at the sky

no matter what they say

that’s where you belong

you will surely find the way

Tomorrow is Eighth March. the day we in India, celebrate as women’s day. In the last 66 years of independence, Indian Women have taken great strides. Many of us have managed to step out of the confines of our homesΒ  and carved out a niche for ourselves in the social and political sphere. Many others have stayed within their homes and still managed to fuel revolution and bring about change.Β  There has been immense positive change. But much more remains to be achieved.Β  Ours is a society in transition. Days like this are reminders of the direction this change needs to take.

Happy Women’s day everyone!

    wonderful and it made me respect you more..!!

    1. thank you shivprasad! a word of caution though! If one went by what people said or wrote, the most respectable people will be the politicians. They say just the right things always! What they do is another matter altogether so don’t respect anyone just for what they say (ha! ha!) πŸ˜‰

      1. shivprasad says:

        well it was the respect for the womanhood.. and it was the respect for your encouraging message, it was for showing equality among every human being… So for me it just came out of my heart which i can’t stop… πŸ˜‰
