Breaking Stereotypes #IAmCapable

Be wise- Never judge anyone based on their looks!
From covers, one can't judge the contents of books!

It's like looking for something in front that's actually hidden in the nooks!
69% of men agree that their judgement of women is based on their looks.

'Appearances are deceptive'- what appears isn't always true!
Yet people get influenced by what they 'see' & haven't any clue!

There's more beneath the surface than what can be seen.
Remember that nine-tenths of an ice-berg is unseen.

Being a woman is so tough, having to juggle tasks & filled with tension!
Women have to worry about- looking presentable & also people’s perception.

Passing value judgments seems to be a favourite game.
Taking the role of a judge in such cases is such a shame! 

Outfits carry subtle messages that are evident to the minds & eyes of the judges.
Women have to forcibly adhere & act; appearance of women createsimages’.

A woman, who wears Sarees, may have ‘modernity’ in her heart.
Yet she is judged as traditional & backward; not sophisticated or smart!

Poor and wrong judgments cause true harm, mental agony and distress that's real.
64% of women agree that such judgments affect their ability to reach their potential.

Still people happily indulge in creating and spreading their own stories!
They are surprised and shocked when suddenly presented with realities!

Just because the girl-next-door has long hair and wears salwar-suits,
Doesn't mean that she can't drive the car or wear suits and boots! 

Oh Yes! She can sport many more things that a poor mind can't even imagine!
That simple girl believes #IAmCapable & has the spirit and charisma to win!

No, don't demean yourself by passing her off as incapable or improper!
Soon you may be proven wrong when you read her achievements in the newspaper!

Many times loved ones & whom we know & trust hurt us more than strangers.
70% of women agree that majority of judgments are from friends or family members.

It's a pain when women are judged on their looks or clothes all the time in their lives.
72% of women agree that working women face more judgments than housewives.

A woman is much more than a mere ornament or an item-piece for presentation.
Stop the judgment, give the respect she deserves, let her make her impression.

My wish for women – May we rise above unfairness, unkindness & injustice!
Like kites, let's fly high against the wind, explore our potential, earn bliss & peace!

  1. On your blog, after long, Anita. And it's a pleasure to be reading you again! :) This is motivating! :)

  2. Very well written , I completely agree with all points you have covered .

  3. Anita, one has to learn to be comfortable where she is before she can excel. Getting to said "comfort zone" is a bumpy road to travel. I look good for me. I am a smart and capable SAHM (for 27-years now) despite society's downward glances. People sit in judgement of others all the time and until that person walks in your shoes he or she has no clue, but the key to one's sanity and success IS confidence in oneself. I enjoyed reading your well written perspective. I'm visiting from Patricia's Place. It was nice meeting you today! ;) ~Curious as a Cathy

  4. It is true most of us tend to make judgments from the superficial not taking time to look deeper. Sadly, we often accept what other people think of us even when they don't know anything but what they think they see. Then we allow ourselves to think we are unhappy instead of allowing ourselves to know the truth that we are happy being who we are. Thanks for sharing with In other Words this week. Very thought provoking post.

  5. Inspiring one! Yes, let us fly high against the wind!

Your words mean a lot to me.
