Why 8th March isn’t Women’s Day?

Fact is it isn’t! Really…because everyday is Women’s day. Women are indeed the best of God’s creation. It would be a shame to dedicate just a single calendar day to honor women.

Granny, Mom, Friend, Lover, Wife, Sister, Daughter, Colleague, Contemporary or Competition, they’re amazing!

My experience with women leaves me humbled and grateful. While one could argue on the bio dynamics, instincts to procreate, protect and feed that at times spurs undesirable behavior, I’m here to testify to the force of pure Goddess that is the hallmark of all our lives.

Adi Shankara the most influential Hindu Sage describing the essence of Advaita philosophy – reveres Women. The Seer Adi Shankara elaborates that “the entire cosmos and all forms of life sprang from Her – The Adi Shakti, and will fold in her”.

We at Ishta Devata celebrate women and womanhood, every waking moment. And it’s NOT because:-

#1 She can get around with a smiling face, act like everything is fine, when in reality, the world is on her shoulder.

#2 She knows that you’ve got what it takes. And is the only one who still believes in you.

#3 She helps you pack when you’re down, and stands by you when you repeat the same lesson with the next lame moment. She loves you enough to let you do it your way – again, and again, like it was the first time.

#4 She cares for you enough to intervene, despite everything, because of everything..

#5 She sees things you haven’t even considered … Incredible things. And helps you notice how great you’re doing, with her on your side

#6 She pampers you – literally. Quickly think of all the outings, meetings or offsites you’ve been to. Who brings the cookies and water? Who remembers that you’re gluten intolerant? And who asks you if you have everything you need?

#7 Her guess is much more accurate than a your certainity…point and taken. Don’t dispute, you know it

Actually, it takes a lot to be a Woman – Granny, Mom, Friend, Lover, Wife, Sister, Daughter, Colleague, Contemporary or Competition. Not just a whim of a billion cells to be her for a while. And its pedantic to be marking just a day.
