The flurry of both sms and e-mails received today makes me think of Holi that was on 4th March. Four days later, women’s day wishes and messages piled up with same zest they had on Holi. Does that mean women is more respected and enpowered in my country now when we have started celebrating the spirit of the day?
I could not believe it when HR department of the company where I work appears with goodie bags meant to be distributed among women. We were given beautiful roses that had all thorns well hiddden in a glittering plastic. (How apt!)
There were other goodies and chocolates for us. For once, greedy men at work were really J.
I do not know what happen to billions of other women especially those who inhabit the countryside. I revelled in the day.
But I need to find out about others.
