It’s never too late!

Richa-Chauhan-Birthday

Lessons I learnt!

The idea of being a perfect woman has always itched my mind. The ‘perfect woman’ concept had some basic parameters, a few years back.

  1. Beauty- fair, and sharp features were the only requirements in my days.
  2. Brain- rather no brain of her own- is how society actually wanted it (maybe still wants it). 
  3. Education- whatever you do, don’t forget to learn cooking and making gol rotis (round chapatis).
  4. Communicative- only and only when it is justified by the people around. Don’t open your mouth otherwise. 

So, I have always wondered, do I fall into this rim of being called a ‘’perfect woman’’. The answer I get is always out in loud- NO. And why would I? Nobody can! 

I was a shy- ignorant girl. I hopelessly lacked the ability to put forth what and how I felt, because I believed that making people uneasy is much more difficult than making myself feel that way. So, most of the time- I chose to be uneasy. I still struggle with it, but things have changed, I do take a stand for myself once in a while. 

Remember- everybody should- saying this without being gender biased.

Today when I step into my 37th year and look back- I find- I had been a silent rebel. I never abided with what society had to offer, and when I did, I regretted.

 Remember- being ahead of your times is no crime in any way. 

Well, my mommy always told me- behave in the way you want people to behave with you. It never goes wrong. I make sure I am not agitated easily. 

Remember- words once spoken, can never be swallowed again. They always stay! 

I saw my mom juggling between work and home, maintaining a happening social life, doing charity, accomplishing her pending dreams of being a PHD and a writer. I do wish to acquire similar genes. Yes, I am ambitious! I have always wished to inhale the air of success. And I have achieved my bit at different stages of my life. 

Remember- never carry the burden of dreams. Take life as it comes. Give your best, and have faith.

This is not a journey of my own. So many people have been a part of it and made me into what I am. I pay my gratitude to each and everyone! I hope to touch your lives in a beautiful manner. And apologies if I have hurt you.

Love and Peace,
