Women have always been a support for men in their times of travails. My life has had been greatly influenced by women in many ways. It was my great grand mother who was a constant source of inspiration for me. She would often recite hymns and stories with morals from ancient times and made me realize their importance in this materialistic world.
My mother, a gentle creature, who always wanted me to eat more than one wants to and who always worried for me during my exam days or seldom do I be late to college or lab. Then is my wife who is caring and loving and has been always a pillar of strength in adverse times. Often I find her on the doorsteps waiting for me whenever I am late from work. Now my daughters, fast growing, exhibiting all the qualities and charms which have influenced my life and hopefully made me a better human being Surprisingly all of them have had some common features like the one; the basic instinct of a woman is to yell at the highest pitch of her voice at the very sight of a cockroach in the kitchen or a mouse in the store room. Over the years I have accustomed myself to such earth-shattering screams! An outsider would often wonder if my house was set ablaze or some wild rabid dog is running after them. Now it is time to lay no regard to such screams and take them as normal occurring in our house hold. But I wonder if such a shout or yell might not bring a heart attack to somebody not acquainted with such sounds.
