Happy Women's Day...
It was a weekend, all our friends planned to go to Juhu beach in the evening. We were six (three boys and three girls) and we were ready to pick a rick. So i stopped a Rick and asked 'Baiya Juhu?', he said no. He crossed us and he went near the girls, they asked him 'Juhu?', he said OK and they went.
Another day in the canteen, I ordered a masala dosa and was waiting for that. Another colleague of mine came and she ordered the same. The dosa was ready and he called her saying 'Madam Dosa ready' and gave it to her. He saw me and said, 'sorry sir, just two minutes'.
There are many such examples... By this time, Many of you might have brought such similar experience to your mind which you had come across? Do you think it is fair?
Waiting for another two minutes doesn't bother me much..
And feeling angry on them also sounds silly..
But in all such situations, how do women feel?
Are they really feeling thankful to men?
Are they feeling that they are powerful than men?
Are they take this as an advantage?
Are they really feel pity on men? OR Are they really say 'Thanks' to them?
Who knows? It depends on people who are there.
But I just asked myself that 'Will that happen the other way, 'Saying no to a woman'?.
Is this happening because, we give priority to women? or we respect women? or its the feel to attract the opposite sex? or we really taking care of women?. Who knows? It again depends on people who are involved. Frankly speaking, I could have also done the same out of respect/care/to attract.
Whatever it is, I am not blaming against any gender. On 8th March we have celebrated Women's Day, Its good to hear and all were happy about it.
I wish, soon we all should celebrate these days in a positive way and promote gender equality but not discussing harassment's against genders.
Happy Women's day...(Too late to wish but felt like scribbling)
