Celebrating Stree Shakti

Young woman with outstretched arms throwing flowers in the air

I am the third child among five siblings. My parents told me that my birth brought them good luck. I have always been happy to be a girl. Boys in those days could not wear colourful clothes, hats, ribbons, jewellery, high-heeled shoes, handbags or boast different hairdos! At puberty, when I matured into a woman, like Anne Frank, I too was excited. Life flowing in me and the potential of bringing into the world a human life! What a great gift women are blessed with!

As a teenager, I was delighted to be vivacious, innovative, enterprising, hardworking and adorable. I was a bundle of energy, who entered into a web of relationships each day. I was also aware that not all of these relationships were cordial and growth producing. I did have my share of difficulties and struggles like every other young daring daughter.
