We asked our team how do we celebrate women’s day. We specifically asked the girls in the family. AC bulged in saying that all should take off their tops. Baffled by the reply and yet with composure it is reminded to him that this ain’t men’s women’s day. The opinion of the menfolk don’t count. Specially when seen from the male dazed spectrum. Many would argue that it is just a nominal mark in the calendar created by the gender obsessed world. Many would say that it only helps to re-entrench the patriarchal images of womankind. Yet we ride this wave to renegotiate, to reestablish, to personalise and to reclaim.
Today we celebrate womanhood. This is not a celebration of the binary of sexes. Nor is it a song of descent. This is a festival of regeneration, of nurture and versatility. Today we celebrate the femininity in all of us.
Happy Women’s Day.
