Happy Women's Day!

Since school I have been listening to the line, "The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world." Although I felt great each time I heard it, I probably did not understand its complete meaning until I grew a little older. 

And as the world celebrates the International Women's Day today, I have penned down a composition of verse for all the women of the world who have fought and worked hard to be where they are today! Who have made a huge difference in our small lives with their love and affection!Who have made an enormous contribution to make this world a better place to live in.

My message to all my fellow women is that "Being born as a woman is a privilege in itself"! Believe in yourself and the fire within!

She hides her strength beneath her beauty
With a charming smile on her face
Her tender eyes exudes courage to endure
Both, gloom and glory, with grace!

She spreads colour and fragrance everywhere
Like a blooming beautiful flower
However her roots, which are well grounded
Is her source of immense power!

She starts her journey as an obedient daughter
And grows into a devoted wife
And then she becomes the loving mother
And plays all three roles, all her life!

She is the one who holds the family
Through its phases, smooth and rough
With tears of joy in happy times
And smiles during times tough! 

She works hard and smart to earn her due
For her honour and principles, she fights
Sometimes with dignified acts and words
Sometimes with all her might!

She is ready to face the challenges
She is ready to win the world.
Yet for her, her prime accomplishment is
When in her arms, her baby is sleeping curled.

With a heart of gold, and thoughts so pure
And deeds so gentle and kind
Oh thy lady, what can I say?
You are the greatest gift to mankind
