Reena’s Exploration Challenge #Week 12

Exploration Challenge 12.jpg

This image makes me think of masks.

No one can swear that he/she never put a mask on his life, whatever may be the situation.

We don’t show our emotions to everyone especially with whom we are not familiar. We want to show our good side only to them. Sometimes, even to our good friends or close relatives, siblings and parent we hide behind a mask. We have lots of masks. One for each role and each situation. I think it’s okay and it’s only natural.

That reminds me of my first encounter with a lady at a community festival. What a pretty woman, was my first reaction. Then I noticed she had a friendly radiant face with an infectious smile.

Slowly I came to know about her other qualities. I found her participating in every function, teaching children dance or songs,  oozing out energy. She was an excellent singer, dancer and a perfect house maker. Excellent in embroidery, stitching, and whatnot. OMG! I thought How can God be so biased? Bestowing all good qualities on one person.

She and her husband were an ideal couple.  I wanted to be like her. Soon she captivated my heart with her charm. We became friends.

When we became more close, she confided that she has no children. There was nothing wrong with her or her husband still she was deprived of motherhood. She had to bear the taunts from in-laws and neighbors and some mean friends also. You know our society? Even if someone can take it as destiny and move on and busy themselves in work and helping others, some people will not let you live in peace. But she never showed her grief to others. She always kept smiling and helping others.

Till now I admired her but now I respected her for her courage. I found she didn’t put a mask but accepted the reality and lived with that to her best ability.

After her husband’s retirement, she went far away from me. She is still living a worthwhile life.

She is still my ideal woman.

About Indira

I knew all along that life is about, love, compassion, compatibility and friendship, but now I have discovered that life is also about sharing the thoughts, encouraging others and getting encouraged. So here I am with my blogs about life, friendship, love, and whatever life has taught me.
