“Hide not your talents, they for use were made,
What’s a sundial in the shade?”
― Benjamin Franklin


Women are the greatest living beings according to me. They can literally do anything under the sun. There is no man who could match up to a woman! From giving birth and managing the house to starting a whole new business and making it a success. Woman can do anything and everything. Being an independent woman is not easy but once you achieve that you don’t need to rely on a man or others to fulfil your dreams or luxuries! This is what some men fear! Such men are spineless, insecure beings and cannot stand bowing down to the opposite sex. They have a taste for weaker women. And as the phrase goes, “It takes two to Tango”, there are such women who obey their commands and then roll up in a corner and silently cry. The lack of self-respect and courage is what makes them so weak and only they can help themselves. Most of all they are dependant on them for everything!
Although there are some men who play an important role in the growth of women. Men have let their guard down and welcomed women to the world which once was solely their property by default. Men have allowed their women to work and fathers have allowed their daughters to get higher educations. You may have also seen the stereotypical roles of men and women being swapped. Men have abandoned all those traditional notions about women and have started treating them as equals. Such men have a broader perspective and thinking unlike the spineless ones. These men are the backbones for women. By being so, they are not henpecked but they are respectable gentlemen.
This is how it should be. The two genders being one, working together and making their life a better place! Let your girls and women be free to pursue their dreams. Let them show off their talents under the sun! Let them make you proud! 😀
