"I woke up by the noises made outside by the construction of building. I peeped out the window and saw some workers outside. But, unlike other times this time when I noticed that most of them were men bothered me. "Educated women are real assets"- this was a speech given by Ms.Santhosh Yadav in the evening of international women's day at a auditorium. This voice kept echoing in my ears. Actually I don't like to listen to these kinds of speeches or lectures. But I went to the auditorium just to get air in the fully air conditioned hall. It was quite warm evening but a pleasant one. As I can't bear the evening heat I went into one auditorium to get rid of summer heat.
I went to the last row and rested my back feeling a great relief because of the cool air from air conditioner. My head started swinging in sleep. I woke up with a sudden jerk by the voice almost shouting with all the emotions- "why giving choices to girls to choose up? Give them all in the choices. Life is not a multiple choice questions for girls." This echoing voice whenever it hears my heart aches as if a hard stone is poking my heart. May be if I am a normal person I would have overcame but I am not a normal person. I am a father, father of a girl who left the home at the age of 16 just to lead her dream as a mountaineer. Yes, she is not with me now. Tears rolled down my cheeks thinking of my daughter.
"Krnggggg"- I was pulled out from the thoughts I was drowning into by the strongly pressed bell. I could realise that it was being pressed for a long time. When I opened the door I saw a girl wearing grey t-shirt with white piped black tracks. Her hair was cut till the shoulders. But staring at her I could recognise that she was the girl whom I saw in auditorium whose voice I couldn't get off from my head. She introduced herself as my daughter. 'What my daughter'?- I almost blurted out. I couldn't bear the shock that my own daughter who left the home due the trouble given by her parents and family is now back as a first woman to scale Mt. Everest twice and now a motivational speaker whose voice made me realize my mistake."- read an article headed " dream big sky is the limit" by Mr.Yadav's father of wonder woman.
