She has no holiday...........
She was sitting in front of me and i was telling her that how i spend my weekend.
"Sunday, Oh! I love Sunday", I told her with a joy, " There are lots of enjoyments I have with my family on Sunday".
She smiled a little, but the feeling was dimmed soon on her face. " I hate Sunday." I saw her astonishingly. " Yes, I hate Sunday, because Sunday has no meanings for me except that this is a name of a week day. I have no holiday, how can Sunday becomes important for me."
She stood and went outside the room, and I thought " She is Mad ".
But this thought after a very short time period, changed in my mind.
Let's take a journey towards her life.
She is a working woman, works almost for 16 hours a day, 8 hours in office and 8 hours in home. His husband works only for 8 hours in office, rest of 16 hours are his, no matter he is going to spend that time in which activity.
She has lots of responsibilities including household works, kids also want her attention as they love their mother so much and try to help her also but they are just kids, having their own things to do. She sometimes thinks that why don't her husband and her family feel her problems, she is a woman more weak than a man and always needs more rest than a man, then why is that if she is a professional woman and still people suppose her to do all works at home also. Even on weekends, everyone has his own activities except her, because she just has to finish the previously remaining things and to prepare for a coming busy week.
The question is that even if a woman is a house wife and does not work in any office, does not she keep the right to spend a holiday? When men tire after their daily routine and want a rest on weekends, why not a woman could have holiday for resting and planning for any other activities?
I just thought about it. What a day it would be? What a Sunday it would be when there will be no cooking, no dish-washing, no dusting, no ironing, and all mothers and wives would be free to do whatever they want to. They will spend time in playing with their kids, shopping with their husbands, meeting their friends and siblings, and finally would be fresh and bright, to face a coming hectic week.
But i think its just a thought, can not be a reality until and unless we all feel our responsibilities for women of the society. On weekends we can do all things ourselves, make lives of our mothers easy, to give them a rest, at least a vacation so they could have some time for themselves.
On Mother's day when most of the Pakistani Mothers are still working in their homes for their husbands and kids, for them can not be a better gift than a thing just like that.
Love your Mothers and Love your Wives, because women are the beauty of the happiness.
