There are so many articles written on the empowerment of the women and the history will be repeated till the existence of the earth. We can say in Shakespeare's language, 'A perfect balance of head, hand and heart can be found in the woman'.
WOMEN CAN well understand the language of emotion and logic. Elizabeth Cady Stanton had once said: “Because man and woman are the complement of one another, we need woman’s thought in national affairs to make a safe and stable government.”
Let’s start with the most famous character of our Indian history. Noor-Jahaan, the queen of the Mughal emperor Jahangir. She was so beautiful and charming that she often used to eat “betel leaf’’ for her beautiful lips on account of the lack of lip-stick. She was expert in politics and an apple of Jahangir’s eye, who had many times followed her advices.
How can we forget the foremost lady of our ancient time, Rohini. She was the most beautiful, full of laughter and intellect, quickness of mind and was helpful to her husband to build the famous “Somnatha Temple.”
“She who rocks the cradle, rules the world.”
Mother Teresa dedicated all her life to send a message of peace and happiness to the people of the world. She preached that, “we are all pencils in the hand of God writing love-letters to the world.” She was a complete package of philosophy and spirituality.
Here it would be an injustice not to mention about the most glamorous Madhubala. She was beautiful and an excellent actor. It won’t be an exaggeration if we compare her to a fairy.
Every woman inspires us. Every one of them represents certain types of qualities. And it is a crystal clear truth that man’s life is impossible without woman. Whether a house-wife or a business woman, only the role changes. But the value of the responsibilities will remain the same.
I would like to complete this with Roseanne Barr’s thought,
“The thing woman has yet to learn is nobody gives you power, you just take it.”
