“Vasudha, you dance very well! Why don’t you join our club for the upcoming dance event we are organizing next week?
Vasudha shook her head in a ‘no’ and replied politely, “Thanks ma’am for this offer but we are not allowed to dance openly in the events or stage. We only dance in our family functions in the presence of our known friends and family members.”
“But our club is also a ladies club and this event dance is only for ladies Vasudha. There will no participation of men there, then why are you so worried?” Asked Maitrayee, the Chairperson of the club.
“Sorry ma’am but this is not in our culture and I’m not a very trained dancer as well,” Vasudha denied her politely and went away from there with slight fear in her eyes.
Maitrayee could understand her fear because of the pressure of her in-laws especially her mother-in-law who was very strict towards her. She thought for a moment, smiled and decided to meet her family the next day.
The next day, she went to their house for a casual meeting
Her MIL and other members were very happy to see her as she was the Chairperson of a very known ladies club. The casual talks started and then she told them about that event which she was organizing at a large scale and politely asked to send her daughter for that. Although Nisha, Vasudha’s sister-in-law was not a good dancer as compared to her, her mother gave permission happily. Suddenly Matraiyee said that it’s a partner dance so she would need a good dance partner too. “Aunty why not you send Vasudha along with her as they know each other very well and can dance with good chemistry?”
After convincing many times she gave her approval for sending Vasudha but with a condition that she has to dance in a pallu.
They agreed and went back for rehearsals. The event was a huge hit and Vasudha went on to become a famous dancer in their city.

A ‘thank you’ makes a lot of difference in the way any woman in your life sees herself in your eyes. It might even mean the world to her.
I have not received any appreciation in the past. Probably never will. This is the experience of ample women across the globe. The expectation to be thanked for all the sacrifices she makes to keep others happy has faded. Yet the urge to hear few words of acknowledgement always lingers.
There is never a day when she pushes off her own burdens. She knows not to give up on people she loves. Women in general, are givers by nature and hence, give without asking anything in return. They have been the care givers and lovers since centuries however receive no appreciation.
It will mean the world to your mother if you answer her calls. If your sister seems lost give her a hug and assure her about her strengths. Tomorrow, there might come a day when you would have to make your daughter feel empowered with few words of wisdom every now and then. For the children to feel wanted and loved, you must be able to spare some quality time with your wife and be present in the moment.
