Of a woman and a man ..

A woman is inscrutable, enigmatic, wondrous and beautiful. So is a man.

A woman is strong and weak, brutal, a fanatic yet kinder than often words can describe. So is a man.

A woman cries at movies, the man sits beside her, sombre but melancholic.

A woman throws her tantrums, gets her heart broken, breaks hearts and recovers from it. Unvanquished and strong. So does a man.

A woman gets attached to the books she reads, a man to the batman boxers he wears.

A man opens the door for a woman, treats her with a fantastic meal, expects a kiss if not anything else.

A woman cooks for a man, takes care of bills, ration and his overwhelmingly demanding pet cat, Bubloo. She expects a little bit of concern, if not anything else.

Men use women. Women use men. That's because people are inherently selfish and there is only so much one could do about it.

It's woman's day again and it makes me fathom how different we are after all. Men and women. We all want the same thing. We all have desires. We all want to live a meaningful life. But we all are mortified of commitment, of responsibility, of getting hurt, of being proven wrong. So we take the easy way out. We hurt people,pull them down, we show them what their true "worth" is.

Remember Joseph Gordon Levitt from 500 Days of Summer? I, being a girl, have often felt the same. About falling for people who don't like you back in return. It was almost like falling in love, except that it wasn't. Everyone feels lost and it is okay I guess, as long as you know how to get back, to find yourself again.

Since we like have a day to treat ourselves to discounts and rejoice on being a woman, we should also take the time out to be able to understand men better. To be able to respect them for the choices they make, even if we don't agree, especially when we don't agree.

As George Carlin had once said,
Men are from Earth, women are from Earth. Deal with it.

    The day will surely come when we will stop discriminating as women and men but consider everybody as only Humans and so Equals!!!!!
