Woman thou art the magnet of this Mayaloka
Pulling man, children and elders together.
Why do you think you are being neglected?
From dawn of today thy laments I’m hearing
O mother, wife, sister, daughter hear ye
Thy lot assured has been from dawn of ages
Centred around thee our world’s revolving
O celebrate thy blessings on this thy day
woman, see many a man transforming to thee
desiring to be the darlings of this world.
Happy International Women’s Day all readers
