“Rest In Peace”, such a short idiomatic expression. So often we use it in our lives for people who have departed from this abode.

As I woke up today morning, the good morning messages on the social messaging App on my phone were mostly wishes and greetings on Holi.

My wife asked me to share with her some good messages which might have come my way so that she can forward the same to her well-wishers too. Nothing wrong in it, I thought, as I promptly did it. That’s what we all do; sometimes not even bothering to read, let alone understanding the full message before being over-enthusiastic to pass it on.

Let me assume a women’s day out. This day need not be the 8th of March, but any other day in the year. It would be a day like any other day in the life of a woman, a day when she walks out of her assumed safe domain to face the vagaries of a male dominated world.

Does a woman feel safe in her day out? Can she walk around without any sense of apprehension and anxiety, as any man could do. Does she feel absolutely safe? Can she stand up with absolute conviction and courage?

I would aspire she could. But regrettably, the reality is that she can’t. As long as she can’t, pronouncing one day of the year as dedicated to women makes no sense at all.
