Any forward-looking government
Which has a clear mandate to govern,
Undisturbed by coalition partners
Nor harassed by the opposition
Has a very good handful of women parliamentarians
Who show sheer grit, hard work and never say-die-spirit,
Will go a long way and reach its goals.
So many women politicians are keenly promoting
Truth, secularism, entertainment, infotainment,
History, Arts, sports and the Vedas
While some men are busily involved in tender-fixing rackets,
Political gamesmanship and corruption
Which announces their withering and redundancy.
The multi-faceted personality of women,
Their phenomenal talents, innovative and imaginative spirit
And their thoughtfulness and patience
With a crowd of cameras flashing on them
Is making of them enigma to their country people.
Surprisingly enough, many don’t like women
To hold key positions, however capable they are.
Interestingly enough, those women who are on the front track
Seriously pursue scaling the heights of excellence.
With stunning possibility that in years to come
Many more countries will place their entire confidence
In women as their leaders.
Look at the William sisters.
It’s their power and stamina,
Their pain and perseverance
That have made of them sporting icons.
Remember that this red and beautiful William blood
Runs in the veins of all responsible women.
A time will come when very few will be able
To match the prowess of women.
They will be the Godsend humanity is waiting for.
With vibrant, knowledge-infused thinking,
They are today’s beacon of hope
And tomorrow’s fulfilment.
