The first time I felt the light and air of another world surrounding me after coming out of my secure world I thought that I have been moved to another strange place but later I came to know that the so-called strange place is the destination I have to reach from my mother's womb, thus saying good by to my secure world. I felt many eyes falling on me with various emotions some with love, some with helplessness, and some with hostility. I was astonished to find the disdainful gaze of people on me I couldn't help but ask myself a question " when did I offend them?". As I grew up from "baby girl "to a "little girl " going to school I heard the crimes committed on children of my age. I felt insecure for the first time after I came to know the meaning of the word. As time went on I achieved the stage of being called a " girl " I again heard of so many cruel crimes where many innocent girls have become victims.
Despite these things, I grew up studying hard to achieve my goals. Finally when I found a job with my hard work and thought of being a financially independent "lady". At this time I heard and witnessed the women who have been suffering from domestic violence. With the fear of domestic violence inside me still, I got married and become a "woman" who is another victim like them. When I gave birth to a baby girl which is also a rebirth to me in the form of "Mother" which is the true meaning for women's life. Even though again I heard the disdainful words of people around me because I gave birth to a baby girl instead of a baby boy all the sadness vanished when I saw my baby's little face combined with her innocent smile. It felt that all the pain which I bore during giving birth is worth and nothing before my daughter's smile. I was happy beyond words when I saw her grew up day by day. On the big day of my daughter when I need to send her to In-laws' house, I sent her hope that she will be happy just like how my mom sent me.
Now after these many years if I look back into my life I found out many things. I should be thanking full at least I was safe in my secure world since many of them have been abandoned even before they are born. In previous ages, humans were afraid of demons who were a separate race but nowadays every human being is afraid of another human being. There is a saying in traditional India that " a woman should be dependent and protected by her father before she is married, husband after marriage and son in her old ages" but what about a woman who has none of them at the required time in her life can't she live? "Yes, she can" this is the first thing how I felt when I heard this is. I thought of how my mom brought me up without any of these three men in her life. Maybe that is the greatness of a woman. Despite all the social problems around her a woman displays endless patience. That is also a reason why a country and earth is addressed as a woman. Even the gods whom we worship for study and prosperity are women. Every moment I feel proud to be born as a woman who has the privilege to be called the origin of the universe.
