Simple Wish of A Woman


Women are women. The forwards on whatsapp, email and other social networking sites, have had a great deal of women-centric jokes and “respect women” messages.

That’s when I read a piece of news about a 100-year-old woman, who has fulfilled her wish to see the ocean, feel the sand and the sea recently. For Ruby Holt it was a wish of a lifetime.

She is one of the lucky few.

However, there are women around the globe, who may not have had an opportunity to fulfill their simple wishes. Life is defined differently for them. They work long; run their homes and rest to plan for the next day.

If asked, “do you have any wish?” the reply is predictable. “My wish is to see my children happy”. She is proud of her strength, and her ability to share her family responsibility. Everything that she does, she calls it her duty.

Such women hardly complain. I learnt it from my mother. And they find ways to keep themselves happy.

I recall a paragraph from Paulo Coelho’s “The Valkyries”…. I quote it from purely a woman’s point of view.

“She was a strong woman, although she appeared to be a weak one. She was a person who walked the path of love, regarding it as the only possible road to wisdom. A path where mysteries were revealed through surrender and forgiveness. She was seeing it with such clarity!”

I believe in taking every day as a learning phase, and exploring my writing skills. I have enjoyed the challenges as a journalist, content writer and college lecturer, and at the moment am living life analysing the extraordinary in the ordinary!
