Dedicated to all women- greatest creation of Lord Brahma
( I have read this in Tamil several times and this is based on a post in face book by my friend A G Kesavan. Thanks to him.)
God Brahma finished creating all beings including man ,
And at last started creating a woman,
Narda who was his son was waiting to talk to him,
Brahma worked without rest and worked for six daya and night.
God Brahma after finishing this great job of his,
Asked his son, why he was waiting for him,
And Narada replied , just to talk to you,
But now I want to know why so much time for this being.
Brahma smiled and started telling his son,
“I was creating a woman and it is a very complicated job.
In her life she should eat anything that is available,
At any time , without murmuring whether she likes it or not.”
“She should be able to manage an adamant mischievous child in a minute,
She should know how to cure anything from small wound to broken heart,
If she happens to be sick, she should cure herself and work for day and night,
For doing all these miraculous jobs she would be provided with only two hands.”
Sage Narada was wonderstruck and expected that creation,
Would be as hard as a stone and touched that woman,
And was surprised to find , she is very tender and soft,
And told Lord Brahma , “This is injustice , she should be hard.”
Brahma again smiled, “True her body is soft but her mind ,
Is so strong that she would be able to do any of her jobs,
Very efficiently , very fast , Without breaking down and with,
Great tenderness and make every one pleased.”
“She would be able to bear any type of burden,
Tolerate the greatest pain ever possible in the world,
And would be able to stifle anger, love,
And sufferings well within her, without difficulty.”
“Only she perhaps can revel her anger by a so mile,.
She would be able fight and win for causes she considers are right,
And she would be able to shower love without any expectation.”
Narada said “Surprising , can she think and decide to this extent”.
Lord Brahma with happiness told , “Not only she,
Would be able to think but also reach correct decisions.”
Narada saw some water flowing in her eyes and asked Lord Brahma “What?”
Lord Brahma replied, “they are her tears and through them ,
She can express her sorrow, joy , worries and wonder.”
The sage said, “Great creation , Six days are not sufficient to create her.
But does she have any defects ?” and laughingly the God told,
“ Yes , none of creations so far are picture perfect ,
“She can never ever understand , what is her worth .”
