Monday Gu(e)st: S II: 8. Man’s Effort in Relationship–Kshitija

Today’s post is a different one. We talk about women empowerment, we talk of the role a woman plays in a relationship and so on. But, we never talk of man or boy or guy. Being a boy myself I also never talk of this. And this point catch my eyes and make the post an interesting and shareable one. Written by a girl thinking of the role of a man play in the daily life of a woman. This week guest blogger is a new blogger-friend name Kshitija.


 

Man’s Effort in Relationship–Kshitija

 

We always praise a lady/women/girl. Each year we celebrate women’s day, mother’s day, daughter’s day. Either she is working women or a homemaker she is always appreciated by people.

“Oh! It’s not an easy task to handle a kid, husband, in-laws everything”,

“Wow!!  You are really a superwoman, you manage your house, family members and then your work. ” although if she had a house maid for all her daily chores but she is always been appreciated.

These are some normal comments which we always hear. 

But we never think from men’s’ side. If he is married then he might be working for 8-9 hours daily, spending quality time with family, fulfilling their needs, desire. I am so grateful to have such people in my life. My Father. I have seen him working so hard in my young age and he never complain about not getting proper sleep or for our outing demands and one man in my life is my lifetime companion(long distance relationship). He works from morning  9 to 6. But never complains that he is tired from work, want a sleep, or upset from his colleagues. No, never he did this and I am always grateful for his sweet gesture, he is always ready to pamper me, listen to me. 

Sometimes being a girl and always been pampered by everyone and appreciated on social media, the newspaper everywhere when I have seen importance is given to women from a very early age. So it always became a mindset that women work most and have to handle everything. But if we magnify the life of a man then we will realize how difficult it is for men to manage each and every relation and then also they never get appreciated or never they demand anything in return. 

This picture perfectly defines what I am unable to express.

Guest Post #4: No Mas, Keep Calm & Carry On and Few More Poems (Cherry)

After a month break I am back with the Monday Guest Post. Today is Tuesday though, but, this week post just left me puzzled. Last 3 times it was an essay each week. This week I had to select poems from a beautiful and talented blogger friend of mine who goes by name Cherry and whose blog name is Rainbow

She is a dedicated Daily Prompt attemptor. Her poem I love to read because of the style, which I have already named Cherry-Style, she writes. Another factor is her depiction of daily life–her and around. So here’s 7 of her poems that I chose to reflect her personality as poetess. And I will request you all to visit her blog to get more surprise through her writings. Please pay a visit to her and I guaranteed, you’ll like her writings. 

Please pay a visit to her and I guaranteed, you’ll like her writings. And don’t forget to comment on this post. The poetess herself will reply to you. Continue reading “Guest Post #4: No Mas, Keep Calm & Carry On and Few More Poems (Cherry)”

Guest Post #3: You are no God to me…(Chirasree)

It’s Monday. And it’s the day for the Guest Post at Thoughts. So, this week I’ve a letter from a girl to her parents. 


You are no God to me…

Chirasree

Mom & Dad,

You are no God to me. You are just human beings. You made mistakes and at times I thought I hated you; I blamed you for so many things that I have lost count of. 

Mom – you were wrong when you didn’t stand up for me even when you felt you should have; I looked to you for support and you kept mum. I hated it when I cried myself to sleep every night lying next to you in bed, but you kept mum. I still wonder if you understand my silence every time I fall short of words. Aren’t you supposed to…?

Dad – You were wrong when you made fun of me in front of my cousins, friends, relatives. You never fully understood me; you still don’t. I hated it when you doubted my capabilities coz I am a girl; you still do, don’t you? 

You both were wrong when you thought confining me to the four walls of a room would keep me safe from beasts of the outside world.

But today I wonder why I blamed you…why I hated you. Did you two really deserve that after everything you did for me? You know! I know the answer; I thought you were God and God never makes mistakes. Today when I look back on those days, I feel I had asked too much of you. You were two mere human beings who abandoned their own dreams to help me fulfill mine.

Dad – You did a job that maybe you hated, yet never dared to quit, so I could sleep peacefully and dream of my dream job. 

Mom – You are my idol. Someday I would love to become a woman like you. I still don’t know if you understand me, but that’s okay. Do I completely understand you? Definitely not.

You are not God. You are just human beings, who can never be replaced even by God.

                                                                         – From a daughter who asked too much of you.
