I have always felt you girls are born special. You can do what you want to do, inside your homes or outside and look beautiful doing that.
You can fight and kill (remember Maa Durga?) You can love and cherish (our very own Saint (Mother) Teresa in Kolkata is a shining example).You are a blessed child of God who can carry life (assuming both man and woman are needed for creating it). But you need to remember a few things.
Why am I telling you all this? I am hoping some of you while Instagramming, and shopping on Amazon will stumble upon this post and get an advantage over those who don’t. Less heartache for you dear girl.
Being born a girl is wonderful. You are truly sugar and spice and everything nice. You are grace, beauty, kindness and love. But unfortunately, life is a balance of opposing forces. You will always face challenges from not so nice things in life. What I tell you today will help you smash those challenges and make your way. Break those glass ceilings which we are still struggling with.
Must know Lesson 1
You should read. Read to learn, read to know, read to experiment and read to know how beautiful, wonderful and magical this world is. Read Malory Towers and Famous Five, read the Faraway tree and your regional language books. Read children’s magazines and the newspaper (check with your parents about what’s suitable for your age.
Once you have fun reading studying is not difficult.
Study hard. Harder than your neighboring Sarla aunty’s darling Dipu, who is very intelligent only if he would take time to study. He doesn’t do well because he just doesn’t have the time to go through all the nonsense teachers teach him. In an attempt to outdo him don’t try the experiment of finding the least amount of study time, which will make you do well. Believe me that never helps .Read your course material and interesting related stuff. You have access to the internet for different resources in different formats. Not only written words, but also video, audio slides everything!
