International Women's Day 2017




It is proper and just to recall and take pride in the achievements of women on a day set aside for WOMEN. My choice  as a woman is to focus on the reverse that is appalling and screaming for action- immediate and outright.

Day in and day out babes, children, teens and working women and the aged at home are being exploited continuously and differently. They are plundered by the opposite gender so easily and without shame or remorse .

Women are exploited, assaulted treated as scum.

Women are treated as objects of satisfaction of their animal craving, according to their whims and fancy, theft and revenge.

Women are used and thrown in a  pathetic state by the roadside, under the brigde, left half buried, bundled in sacks, travel bags and thrown to the trash pile constantly rising in height and breadth all over.   




My dear  friends (men) and sisters wake up!

BE BOLD TO CHANGE. Don’t expect to be given rights.

Claim your own, Own them up with courage and confidence.

May the few successful women reach out to help those still  struggling and yearning.

No amount of plans, Ordinances, laws and legisation proposed  by the top Govts, NGOs and individuals will be of any  help till the ORDER intended by the Supreme Power is restored: not being pessimistic but realistic. Agree!

Woman is a companion, to complement the other.Live in perfect harmony and dignity as creatures and co –creators.

Then, only then, will woman be O.K.; man be O.k.  and All will be well.

Be proud to be a WOMAN  beautiful,accompanying and responsible

                                               along with the opposite gender who are human, normal and respectful.


                                           Have great days not only a day on  8 March ....
