Woman: She is a Mother First and Last!
|by Meera Chowdhry|
Lately, Indian society has taken a new turn - so to say the women population. It is very encouraging to know that the women in India are getting more and more career oriented. It is a very good feeling when we are able to do things; we like to do and succeed. It is very important for us to be able to prove to ourselves what we are capable of doing. When we are almost finished with the responsibility of raising kids, we feel the necessity of having a successful career. Therefore, it is important that we do not over look building the career while we are raising kids.
However, there is another very important aspect that women have to take care of - raising good citizens. We often say in Hindi that a woman has to repay the earth by becoming a mother. Becoming a mother is a lot more than just giving birth. Mother has the total responsibility of raising the children to become good human beings and good citizens. I personally, feel raising good citizens is far greater responsibility than just raising good and successful children. The citizens build the nations, which is the future of our children. If we like to be selfish, we should be selfish in giving good overall future to our children.
Because of the media we are more aware here in the west. It is often found that the kids who are neglected and are less fortunate in getting love of their parents are full of anger within. Those kids contribute negatively to our society. Most such kids are either from broken families, teenage mothers and or mothers who work full time and are not able to give them time. It is important to provide a good material life for our kids but more important is to provide a loving and healthy emotional atmosphere for them. The most important part of a growing child is the emotional security. It needs a lot of sacrifice on the part of the mother. It is very difficult for mothers to work full time, take care of the home and still give time to the kids. Needless, to say where there is a will there is a way.
