Woman Power!

An empowering post…
It’s worth a thought…

Naina Nair's Musings

We keep hearing that women need to be empowered and a lot of women are suffering and need help and so on…

From a particular angle this is true and yet only a small switch has to be made instead of huge slogans and programs.

In the name of empowerment women are trying to do things that men are doing. They can surely do it! But whats the whole point? There is nothing to prove and nothing that she needs to do in order to prove her importance! She is all powerful just like that!

From our scriptures and many age old epics we know that woman was referred to as Shakti. Shakti is strength and the name itself reflects power.

Now most of us know that the atman or soul is not male or female. It is just pure and existential.

So the gender is all about the body…

Parched and tired, lonely and alone,

Looking for love, looking for support,

Trudging around in the sands, winds all gone…

Missing those days, I had spent in comfort…

daylight, desert, drought

‘Someone’ & ‘Innocence’

blur, calm, close-up

With innocent doe like eyes,

Innocence looked into ‘Someone’s’ eyes

Big tear drops rolled down her cheeks

As Innocence sat near the well and cried

close-up, eye, eyelashes

In this moment she felt lost,

All alone, in this big bad world,

Deceived, hurt and burning down in agony,

More tears arose…

child, girl, kid

‘Someone’ walked up to her and said,

Don’t cry my dear, don’t be upset

‘Someone’ extended a hand, with a promise to be there,

Innocence looked up and in those little eyes, saw the care…

couple, friendship, hands

Innocence trusted ‘Someone’ and gave her hand

‘Someone’ caught her hand and held it tight

A promise to safeguard strongly affirmed

‘Someone’ tugged her along together

Girl Staring at the Sky

Walking together for a long time soon they met a crossroad

‘Someone’ crossed over and just stood on the other side,

Innocence in the guise of a woman, waited for ‘Someone’ to come and take her together,

Innocence still waits for ‘Someone’, at the cross road, with her hands stretched out…

backlit, beach, clouds

Time passes and ‘Someone’ moved on, changed and became insensitive

Innocence tired of waiting these years, broke down,

She had realised ‘Someone’ was gone for ever, her only security was gone forever,

Now she was alone, strong and resilient, she wiped her tears and walked forth

adult, beautiful, brunette

That day innocence had turned into EMPOWERMENT!

Innocence had finally found her way, her tears were all dry and she confidently strode across…

Crying tears of joy, as the spirit of freedom danced within innocence

She quit mourning over a story in the past, that was never meant to be, the broken dream had now been forgotten as Innocence looked back into the sands of time from the other side of the cross road..
