Celebrating real women

Celebrating the women
who go about their daily business
irrespective of the day, or the month or year,
who have not known about a life
apart from the one they lead,
who have never been to a place
other than the one in which they were born and they live
Never even a small respite/getaway/breather
in the form of a movie or a book

The ones who keep their families together
by tearing apart  their dreams
The ones who survive
content or otherwise
so that their dear ones
can thrive
