A woman according to me is the most respectable entity in our society. A woman has always exhibited diversified qualities, in the different roles that she plays in her life – as a mother, a sister, a life-partner, a friend, a daughter and of course a source of inspiration.
Our lives are so influenced by women that we can’t deny them their significance in our life.
Who can deny the importance of a woman as a mother, who bears all the pain and gives birth to you and me, the individuals who grow up under the encapsulation of her care, her love, her sacrifice and her dedication. The love of a mother for her child can’t be compared to anything in this world. In Indian Culture, a mother is treated as a God and comes the foremost in the priority list of worship. Everyone knows the phrase “Matrudevo bhava.” This phrase means the mother is equivalent to God. And why not ?? Will anyone deny the role our mother plays in grooming us up?? I don’t think so !!
Whoever has a sister will definitely understand the role a sister plays in our life ! A sister is the best emotional support for you in ones life as a bachelor !! I have expereienced throughout my life how strong and caring a sister is. In Indian culture, a sister plays a very important role in our life and that’s why we have festivals like “Raksha Bandhan” and “Bhau Beej” which highlight the special bond of relation between a brother and sister. What a sister expects from her brother is just a protective relation where she can feel secure and what does she give in return ???…… lots of love and mature thoughts, which are really invaluable!! Having a sister in ones family is really a boon …. a boon which I have and am lucky to have !!
The role of a woman as a life-partner is completely different from the earlier roles !
All those lucky who have a girl friend or are married (if they think the way I think) may have experienced the difference between the earlier roles and this one.
As a life-partner, the woman is totally different. She wants her man to be someone she can be proud of.
She idiolises her man and wants him to be her “soulmate”! As a partner, the woman symbolises her inner strength which overrides her beauty and her passion. She is always there for her man when he needs her and has the immense ability to switch on and off into different roles. I have seen from the experiences of my friends and my relatives, how a woman, though playing the role of a life partner can easily be a mother, a sister a friend for her partner when time demands a shift in her roles!
As a daughter, the woman is the greatest support for her parents, as she is always ready to sacrifice for the benefit of the family. A daughter is an asset to the family as very often do we see her sharing the responsibilities equally with the mother and father.
A daughter has an essence of motherhood too in her natural instincts and so in the absence of the mother, is the substitute mother for the entire family !(Remember the days when mom is ill….. who replaces her efficiently ???? Of course it’s her daughter!!
No wonder why daughters are favorites of Fathers !!!
According to me the role of a woman as a life-partner for the man, is the most significant one as this role gives her the opportunity to single up all her prior roles viz. a mother, a sister, a partner …..all into one. That’s why they say “BEHIND EVERY SUCCESSFULL MAN, STANDS A WOMAN !”.
It’s this role of a woman which if played properly and dedicatedly, can build and flourish the family but if not, can ruin the family too !!
