International Womens Day


Today is International Womens Day and I thought I should not end the day without adding my few words and recognizing a few of the women who have made a mark in my life and made me whom I am today. Incidentally in some countries IWD is marked as a public Holiday which I believe is a more worthy day than some of the public holidays we have to honour politicians.




  1. Mum: For today I would just not not be there if you hadn't brought me up, fed me, educated me and loved me as all mothers should.


  2. My Primary Class Teacher: I wonder if kids today have that one class teacher who would take you from Std 4 to 8, I always remember Miss **** who was always willing to encourage me to do better even when I was top of the class her usual remark was always 'You can do better' and as I look at myself today those words still apply.


  3. My First Love: We may not be together now but you taught me how to put someone elses needs and feelings before mine, how to treat a lady and for all the happy memories which I always treasure and will not forget.

There are many others too numerous to mention individually and I know there are many more out there I am yet to meet, My utmost best wishes to all the women in the world with hope that someone out there is saluting you as a Mother, Teacher, Friend or Lover.
