Happy Women’s Day!

March 8, 2008: So today is women’s day! Last year on this day, I wrote this post in my blog when I was so much gaga about receiving so many women’s day messages. I naively thought now that this day was getting lot of attention, some real positive action would follow. This year, the days passed unnoticed. There were hardly any sms-es, except those from DoT and service providers. I searched the local newspaper for any play or show taking up women’s issues in my city. There were none!

It was good old Internet that could bring up something for me about the day.

International Women’s day

Read here to know why we have International Women’s day! According to a blog post I randomly came across, women’;s day is national holiday in Russia. Read this blog post to read an interesting way in which Russian women celebrate their women’s day.

Happy Women’s day, though! 🙂

    Happy Women’s Day to you Poonam. I should’ve texted you but it just didn’t strike me because of the exams. Anyway, excuses are lame. My bad. But hey, I did wish my mum.

    Interesting way to celebrate the day by Russian women indeed. Must have been quite a spectacle that.

    Happy womens day Poonam.
    Actually I am one of those people who don’t believe in ‘days’ that are marked out for certain things, though I do mention them once in a while. One has to work throughout the year for a cause one believes in…

    @ish: Hey, I forgot to ask you how your exams are
    going. That’s so sweet of you wanting to text me. How many exams are left?

    @Nita: hey, thanks, Nita. True, no point in believing in one day. Spirit should be carried 365 days a year 🙂

    Yeah, English exam was good. But I don’t know why I’m feeling like shit today. When the exam goes good, tab depression hota and when it doesn’t go good, koi farak nahi padhta. I don’t know what’s happening to me.

    Thanks for the message you sent last night, sab uska kamaal tha. And sorry I couldn’t reply back, mera balance was like Rs. 0.75 lol.
