“When God Created Mothers"

When the Good Lord was creating mothers, He was into His sixth day of "overtime" when the angel appeared and said. "You're doing a lot of fiddling around on this one."

And God said, "Have you read the specs on this order?" She has to be completely washable, but not plastic. Have 180 moveable parts...all replaceable. Run on black coffee and leftovers. Have a lap that disappears when she stands up. A kiss that can cure anything from a broken leg to a disappointed love affair. And six pairs of hands."

The angel shook her head slowly and said. "Six pairs of hands.... no way."

It's not the hands that are causing me problems," God remarked, "it's the three pairs of eyes that mothers have to have."

That's on the standard model?" asked the angel. God nodded.

One pair that sees through closed doors when she asks, 'What are you kids doing in there?' when she already knows. Another here in the back of her head that sees what she shouldn't but what she has to know, and of course the ones here in front that can look at a child when he goofs up and say. 'I understand and I love you' without so much as uttering a word."

God," said the angel touching his sleeve gently, "Get some rest tomorrow...."

I can't," said God, "I'm so close to creating something so close to myself. Already I have one who heals herself when she is sick...can feed a family of six on one pound of hamburger...and can get a nine year old to stand under a shower."

The angel circled the model of a mother very slowly. "It's too soft," she sighed.

But tough!" said God excitedly. "You can imagine what this mother can do or endure."

Can it think?"

Not only can it think, but it can reason and compromise," said the Creator.

Finally, the angel bent over and ran her finger across the cheek.

There's a leak," she pronounced. "I told You that You were trying to put too much into this model."

It's not a leak," said the Lord, "It's a tear."

What's it for?"

It's for joy, sadness, disappointment, pain, loneliness, and pride."

You are a genius, " said the angel.

Somberly, God said, "I didn't put it there.”

“Hungry? Thirsty? Tired and need a place to lay your head?

Need your shoe tied? A book read? A ride to baseball? New sheets for your dorm? A babysitter for your kids? A quiet cup of tea?

Do you need help navigating a problem? A heartache? A loss? Celebrating a win?

Want motivation? Validation? To be challenged? To be held? To be loved?

Call a mom.”

They are the rock.
They are important
Lets love them.
Lets respect them
Lets honor them.
Lets appreciate them
Lets protect them
Lets support them
Lets save them
Lets listen to them
Lets believe them
Lets be there for them.

They are our children, our sisters, our girlfriends, our friends, our wives, our mothers, our grand mothers, our colleagues, our neighbors. They don't need to prove themselves or to explain themselves to anyone. They need to be who they are. Phenomenal women.

“Women are getting raped and killed everyday. Women are getting abused and silenced everyday . This day should be a day where we say what systems or what mechanism are in place in helping women. This day, is a day where we should be launching new projects and systems to help women. This day is a day where we should review what we did from this day last year, until now. How many women been helped and protected. How many women have been empowered. Then this day will mean more to lot of women than saying that women are imbokodo.”
De philosopher DJ Kyos

To my lovely, Caring, pride!

Who inspired me the most.”

“How I wish more women can be heard.
Can be skilled and educated.
Can be empowered and given opportunities.
Can be respected and be credited.
Can be loved and valued.
Can have their choices and opinion .
Can have their privacy and freedom.
Cannot be policed nor by their looks, clothes or behavior.
Can take accountability and responsibility for their actions.
Can own up to their decision.
To all women out there.
Happy International Women's Day
We love and appreciate you.”
De philosopher DJ Kyos

Abhijit Naskar
“Sonnet of Breastfeeding

From the breasts a world is fed,
With their warmth society is raised.
Yet we ignore their sacred place,
Without breasts we'll all be erased.
Woman's breasts are not objects,
With or without a baby clinging.
We may hail them means of pleasure,
Only when the person is asking.
Way more than triggers of romance,
Breasts are symbolic of motherhood.
A society that doesn't respect mothers,
Will never ever attain humanhood.
A world that is safe for mothers,
Is safe for all beyond age and genders.”
Abhijit Naskar, Hometown Human: To Live for Soil and Society
