Woman is sometimes known as a man's woe.
Right from the beginning, starting from Adam, man has
continually been intrigued by womankind. A baby boy thinks
the world of his mother. Nearing adolescence, he gets friendship
and understanding from his mother and knows she will be there
for him whenever required. Youth opens his eyes to the various
aspects of a woman's personality, wherein he meets all types
of females in everyday life.
compares the values of his mom to the girl he will eventually
marry. Mostly he finds the girl of his choice but sometimes
disillusionment meets him on the way, clawing at his conscience
like the talons of an eagle.
He tries to get out
of the vicious situation but it ends up in sorrow and bitterness.
A woman is the symbol of shakti in Hindu mythology but when angered,
she takes on the armour of a destroyer and here her image turns
to the one of Kali with her rudra roop.
It is true that
a woman either makes or breaks a man. Her support can make
a man successful but the opposite takes place when she is
angered, exploited, rejected or dishonoured. It is said that
behind every successful man there is always a woman whether
she is a mother, sister or wife. Man is incomplete without
a woman who is his better half and rightfully so. Just like
a cycle moves forward on two wheels, so the family vehicle
moves forward with the help of both husband and wife. If one
fails, the boat begins to rock and might eventually sink.
