It gradually dawns upon us that we are women. Amazing! men giving us 'those looks' as if we are not fellow humans, our need to tread with care - right from the age of ten to the time she gets married, how many myriad ways and experiences for a female child to learn that she's a woman! Many a time, it feels like it's all a man's world and it ain't ours. We need to lie low, as if we are living in a stranger's house. Every step we take needs forethought. Every word needs to be uttered with caution. We should smile with our lips stretched just the right amount - any excess would immediately turn the world over. It's boring to live life-long in a society that's not ours - should make this man's world a human's!
