A Successful Woman


When a man wishes to enter the wedding altar,
He chooses to have a traditional wife
Who cooks, cleans and is submissive without strife.

When he is unable to make both ends meet,
His pecuniary condition becomes his grouse,
And he sends for employment his spouse.

To the family ‘s income streams—she adds,
And with the finances now more secure,
A part he saves, and a house, he does procure.

She is better exposed to the world,
And has knowledge to discuss with her husband
About the investments in the best fund.

The children are no more molly coddled,
They become spirited and independent,
And learn to be more brave and confident.

She takes the home and country forward,,
By fulfilling her dual roles' obligation,
And is a successful woman with soul satisfaction.

    You have rightly invited the attention of many of us to a reality pertaining to the Indian wife of conventional strata.
    I am afraid such notions have begun to fade.. All the glory of great character and making compromises in life however, goes to the Indian wife and mother of your description. Long live such a tribe! Thank you for sharing. (Report) Reply
