ମାଆ ମାଆ ବୋଲି କେତେ ମୁଁ ଡାକିଲି,
ମା’ ତ ଶୁଣିଲା ନାହିଁ।
ମାତୃ ମାତେ କହି ମୁଁ ଯେ କେତେ *ଆଦରିଲି,
ହେଲେ ଉତ୍ତର ମିଳିଲା ନାହିଁ।

Instead of just specific days, can’t we just every day morning first up & so on & before rest/sleep be grateful to the Life & Creator/Supreme Being & that all lives equal, & genders equal & unique & complement & complete each other & one another. Why just #InternationalWomensDay or #InternationalMensDay or other genders (InternationalOthersDay or InternationalThirdGenderDay) or so!?
For that matter, both Ishwar & Shakti, Mata o Pita, we do prarthana & gratitude. So love the Bharatiya true Sabhyataa Way of Life.
Also, let’s acknowledge & respect the Genders – uniqueness and specialities. Be aware, but not discriminate or deny. Biological difference be acknowledged, so equality means: not just making it equal for the sake of it and everything or special privileges thereby. Be grateful for the uniqueness. Genders yet Gender Neutral. It’s Life within. Acknowledge & gratitude.
