Daughter's Day: An ode to daughters' spirit
Daughters are the best gift for the family and society since they signify the sense of nurturance and tender feelings. Social media celebrated Daughter's Day yesterday as the 'true angels of the universe'.

The entire present week has been dedicated to daughters to value them as individuals. In fact, the old parents and grandparents feel an urge to be closer to their daughters as Euripides has rightly said, "To a father growing old nothing is dearer than a daughter."

Many fathers do feel that daughters evoke tender feelings and inspire them to lead a calm and collective life. "I can't stress how much my daughter is an inspiration to stay sober," A.J. McLean had said once.

There is need to value femininity and emphasise gender equity along with moving away from the taboos restricting the development of daughters in socialisation practices within rigid gender constructs of masculinity.

The traits of right hemisphere of the brain like nurturance, caring, cooperation, gentleness, empathy, emotions and sensitivity should be equally valued. The role reversal should totally be avoided if we really love our daughters, I feel.

According to psychologist Marcia Reynolds, daughters should be free to discover their passion and contribute in ways that feel meaningful for them since they blend feeling of gracefulness with feeling of being of being accomplished. What is needed in society is the acceptance and inclusion of feminine qualities and daughters' spirit.

The week needs to be converted into the occasion to celebrate the spirit of daughters since they create humanity and we must acknowledge their individuality.
