 Being A Woman 

Date of Publish - Friday, 29th December 2017


Living in the contemporary world, where we are fighting for equal rights and equal opportunities, don’t you feel that we have forgotten who a woman is?

Starting this with a poem that my friend wrote in between our lecture:


Like breeze, she’s calm
Like wave, she’s strong
Like sun, she’s bright
Oh, she’s the beauty of nature
Her soul……. As pure as her heart
Touched by pain, by torture
Yet she stood still, ahead she marched
Learn, from her the living
Learn, from her the loving.

Being in a college surrounded by girls working hard to empower themselves and be independent and fly like a free bird with no cage and no restrictions, I had this sudden urge to write who a woman is. To be very honest, there is no literal definition or a societal definition of who a woman is because a woman is dynamic and complex.

A woman evolves every day like the earth; she grows and learns every day like the child; suffers and fights like a warrior. A woman is just not someone who nurtures and gives birth, or simply someone who cooks and makes the home. She is one who raises you, who makes a family “the family”, who sacrifices her, sleep so that you sleep, who does not know how to say “no”, who fights the world just to prove her worth, who doesn’t complain of her life and knows how to put on a brave smile. Can you put a bag of heavy bricks on your stomach for the next 9 months? No, you can’t. Can you strain yourself emotionally, physically and mentally and simply not complain? No, you can’t. They say it’s her nature; this is how she is made – strong and soft. Yet, she is undermined and yet she struggles.

She imagines of flying and living her dreams, she imagines of having the strength to say “no”, she imagines of running away from her life, she imagines of peace......


I might be sounding like a feminist, but I am not. It’s just so hurtful to see women being undermined for who she is, women crying in pain, women fearing men, women not being women. Quoting the words of Diane Mariechild – “ A woman is a full circle. Within her is the power to create, nurture and transform.
