“Sometimes being a woman seems to be a boon, and sometimes seems to be a sin”- Poetry which narrates what being a woman entails!
Being a Woman- a boon or a sin,
Right from childhood to old age,
Trained to behave appropriately,
Whatsoever the circumstances demand.
Can’t afford to lose maturity,
Society dictates rules upon us,
What to wear, how to walk, whom to talk,
What not to follow, what to study, the list goes on!
Still the harassment continues in the midst of rules,
Some work like a robot supporting others 24/7,
But not taking care of self.
Showering unconditional love,
Expecting nothing in return except love and care from others,
But that too difficult at times,
As people fail to reciprocate in same wavelength.
Life of a woman is like a candle itself,
Candle lit by parents, slowly diminishes with age,
Burning within providing light everywhere.
Suffering everything silently,
Taught from childhood to make others content.
Sometimes the flame flickers at times of difficulties,
And then the wick goes further down and down,
With passing age, nourishing others.
Finally, at the end, smoke from the wick comes out.
When our soul gets released leaving behind,
What we wriggled and erected all along;
Born to struggle and care for others,
It seems selfish at times when you care for yourself.
Journey of life teaches her a lot more than her parents,
Faces of deceit, treachery, mockery, villainy
Comes face to face.
Being bold and courageous helps,
Never losing hope, she marches forward.
Sometimes being a woman seems to be a boon,
and sometimes seems to be a sin!

For International Day of Elimination of Violence Against Women, let's look at how we 'accept' mothers who avenge violence against their kids, but not wives who fight back.
The silver screen is replete with depictions of male rage and men engaging in violence, but when women engage in violence, even when it is reactionary violence, it doesn’t sit right with us. We allow mothers (as portrayed in Sridevi’s Mom and Raveena Tandon’s Maatr) to avenge their daughters and resort to violence when all else fails, but when the abuser is an intimate partner, the rules appear to be different.
Depictions of female rage on screen garner mixed reactions. We root for protagonists and films we agree with like Mom or Maatr, but there are also films like Darlings which drew flak for its depictions of reactionary violence.
This begs the question, which women on screen are allowed to fight back and why do we root for some of these characters while refusing to see where others come from?
This Generation To Generation Violence towards A Daughter-in-law Needs To Stop!
It is ironic how women in the same home do not think twice before harassing a woman who left her parents and family behind to live with her husband.
“My daughter needs a husband who listens to her. He should leave his family to stay with her after marriage. He should be well-off and not let her do chores.”
“I also need an obedient daughter-in-law, who will be an unpaid servant and a punching bag who shouldn’t have a life of her own.”
