Today’s ABC Wednesday’s alphabet is X, by no means an easy one…but having missed on the last three times… I wanted to do one for sure but was clueless how to make something out of X… enable to think of anything i put in on twitter and FB and got some responses…. but nothing to make an intersting post out fof it… I scratched my head and then realised bah… how can miss this
“X” is what determines the fate of the human being brought into the the world and atleast in India the mother who is going to bring the life in the world.
X is a important thing… come to think of its just an alphabet right but looked at from a choromsome point of view… makes two people so different, makes them male and female….
An X could mean the pain, the humilation for the mother and also resulting in a illegal abortion
An X could mean that the person born would have being discrimated against all her life if the above was not true
An X could mean that the little girl would loose her childhood and be forced into doing the household chores only
An X could mean that she will be denied her right of education
An X could mean that the girl who is still to become a teenager will be forced into marriage against her wishes
An X could mean that she’ll be told her whole life what to wear and what not
An X could mean that all her life she will either be a daughter, sister, wife, daughter-in-law, mother but never herself
An X could mean that she will be labelled as ghar ki ijaazt inspite of being a human who thinks and feels
An X could mean that if she is wronged at she will be blamed still, saying u asked for it
An X could also mean that there will be someone feeling and giving the motherly love which has no match at all…
An X could also mean someone standing upto all the discrimation and fighting hard with all the strength she has
An X could also mean a pillar of emotional strength, holding the whole family up in times of difficulties
An X could also mean bright shining doctors, and the girls outdoing boys every year in results
An X could also mean getting together and making something as trivial as pink chaddi a big revolution
An X could also mean an Mother Terresa, Indira Nooyi, Sonia Gandhi, Kiran Majumdar-Shaw, Chanda Khochhar, Mallika Sarabhai, Sunita Williams, Sania Mirza
Hope we keep adding to the X of the second list and the X from the first list just vanish

True, so true, and so wonderfully done Mon.
thanks GM, glad u liked it
An inspired take on the prompt.
thanks anthony welcome here 🙂
I surprisingly don’t like this view point……
I agree a lot of bad has been happened with Women in Past………
But still you would find a lot of people around you who actually appreciate, respect, acknowledge and celebrate the presence of a women in their life….
I feel at times we get so preoccupied with pointing the bad fish we ignore the good ones completely in the pond
i agree with u when u say that there are people around who actually appreciate, respect, acknowledge and celebrate the presence of a women in their life…. but what I am questioning is the precentage of such people??? very few and that is when i am talking abt myself i.e an educated professional female… go a village and the situation is still as bad as years ago
what village, situation is equally bad in my maid’s house https://monikamanchanda.wordpress.com/2008/09/18/they-will-tear-me-apart/
forget even that we are still told what to do and not in a educated city
as late as last month a college in india banned jeans because they thought that might result in sexual crimes… and u say things have changed
i do understand my friend where u are coming from and “feel at times we get so preoccupied with pointing the bad fish we ignore the good ones completely in the pond” and this is something i completely agree with but in this case… there is a loooooooooong way to go before i rest
X is the number of times I come first !!!!!!! and X is the number of times I miss… !!!!!

SUPER TIGHT HUGS!!!!
monu, i feel so happy to read this and so proud to know u!!! this was really out of the box, lateral thinkng and very relevant! who wud have thought of “X” like this!!!!
love u more for this!!!
he he thanks crafty 🙂
hugs back tightly 😀
Very true… and a very nice way of expressing it… 🙂
World might have tried hard to be bias,partial and what not but the ever lasting truth is “X comes always before Y” .. “X” is and been the torch bearer….and you noticed “Y” always need one support to match upto “X”, Y + \ = X
that was a good one puneet 🙂 i like the way u thought… only if all start thinking like this world would be a better place
First time on your blog and I was pleasantly surprised to see something so fresh and different. An Xcellent post Sorry could not resist that pun.

Absolutely brilliant. And I hope too that all from the first list come to the second list 🙂
Very creative and very inspiring post Monika.
hope that too IHM… and hope it happens soon enough for us to see
this is so inspiring Monika..loved your take on it..
.it will force readers to stop awhile and think…
thanks indy… i hope it does
Xcellent post. Very creative. Poor Y 🙂
na joy Y is not poor, infact I feel Y is equally powerful just that X hasnt been acknowledged for its power yet
hey good good one… am reading after a long time…. anyways….. 🙂
thanks and ya where have u been BTW?
That’s beautifully done and something to think about. How difficult is it for people to understand that it is not X’s fault. It is the Y. 🙂
thanks and solilo i love that pic
