You might have seen the world celebrating Women’s day yesterday. There were tons of posts and messages and blogs and what not about how mighty and great women are. How they should be treated equally and what not. In between all the messages and posts were people who talked about how the whole idea was bullshit and there was no need of a special day to celebrate womanhood. If you respect women, show her that respect and she would feel celebrated.
Talking to such people made me introspect how right they were. We are mighty kind and we don’t deserve to be celebrated just for a day. We command and deserve respect daily. I originally had planned to post this blog yesterday but then bailed out. Because women’s day is everyday and not just on that day.
I have learnt a lot of shits in life. But there are some women in this space who have taught me and made me who I am. So ladies, this one is for you.
Let me talk about the four superwomen in my life.
The list of inspirational and kickass women would be incomplete if I do not mention my mom. My mother is basically a homemaker. But that does not make her less kickass. She is like a bud not only to me but to all my friends that know her. Without her, I cannot imagine being this independent woman that I am today. She basically made me push my boundaries and limits by not being that come-depend-on-me mommy and instead asking me to step up and be independent. Thanks mom for making me independent and strong headed to fight the world on my own. Thank you for not being a crying shoulder when I failed because that helped me work harder for the success.
Miss Monita aka my Language Teacher at school
I seriously owe the English I know and speak and write to this woman. In the class where everyone else was practically sleeping (sorry ma’am but that happened!), she made me all interested in the language. I still remember her correcting my grammar and language in the write-ups that I gave her to read separately (I still have them ma’am, all marked red). You made me improve and I practically have my current job because of you :D. You inspired me to love the subject and to read. So, thank you for trusting me and helping me improve.
Lilly Singh aka Superwoman
Who doesn’t know her. If someone does not, you probably are living under the rock because she is the world’s highest paid Youtube celebrity. For people who don’t know her, you should check out her channel, ||Superwoman||. I have always looked up to her whenever I have felt sad and low in life. All her videos have made me laugh and cry and feel all sorts of emotions. Honestly, I look up to her for being such a kickass woman, doing all the things that one could dream of, all by her hard work. She gives me hope, dreams and courage that you can achieve success if you work hard.
Lilly, my girl, I owe you for all the dreams that I see. They are because of you. You give me courage and hope that I can achieve them and maybe, I would.
Ms. Bhairavi Sagar
This woman is basically doing my dream job. I followed her for she resonated my love for travel. Let me introduce you to her, Bhairavi. Bhairavi has travelled across 50 countries (like, wow!). Right now, she owns a travel company, Voyages Overland. This woman has been a total traveller at heart. Fortunately, I even had a chance to talk to her. She says, ” I have always been a traveler at heart and a hands-on road travel enthusiast ever since I can remember. Voyages Overland was formed to bring the idea of overland travel to India and is solely driven by the love of travel and the experiences it offers. When asked what she would like to tell other aspirational entrepreneurs, she quickly says, ” Always have a Never Say Die attitude, regardless of how impossible the task in front of you seems. Simply Go for it and give it your all, for if you don’t, you would never know what you are capable of.
To all these women who know me or not, thank you for coming in my life and adding the necessary zing! And to the ones who I haven’t mentioned but have been with me through thicks and thins, I love you girls.
You are all my “superwomen”.
