According to me the only known category of living organisms, after woodpecker, that is referred by their action is the category of ‘women’. Women are called women because they woo men. It’s as simple as that.
Today is a day of this category – an International Woman’s Day.
In today’s TOI I read Vidya Balan’s opinion about observing Woman’s Day. Witty indeed. But a soft humorous part within me feels jealous about such opinions. I feel women at least have a day on their account. May be for world we men just don’t exist.
Apart from this humorous thinking I am completely in agreement with Vidya that celebrating a day for something or something clearly means less importance for rest of the year. Why we should have a day for women; either we should have a complete year or every second.
It’s an irony that on one hand we talk about gender equality and on the other hand we observe an international woman day.
