Wife of today - Forwarded

Chumma Talk: It is sad when someone dump you after a long-term relationship, but you experience the worst when you never get to tell a person how much you love him/her.


This is something I got from a forwarded e-mail (Thanks Sundra). It's rare for me to post something forwarded but I think this one worth a read:

Here is a girl, who is as much educated as you are - who is earning almost as much as you do.

One, who has dreams and aspirations just as you have because she is as human as you are.
One, who has never entered the kitchen in her life just like you or your Sister haven't, as she was busy in studies and competing in a system that gives no special concession to girls for their culinary achievements.

One, who has lived and loved her parents & brothers & sisters, almost as much as you do for 20-25 years of her life.

One, who has bravely agreed to leave behind all that, her home, people who love her, to adopt your home, your family, your ways and even your family name.

One, who is somehow expected to be a master-chef from day #1, while you sleep oblivious to her predicament in her new circumstances, environment and that kitchen.

One, who is expected to make the tea, first thing in the morning and cook food at the end of the day, even if she is as tired as you are, maybe more, and yet never ever expected to complain;
to be a servant, a cook, a mother, a wife, even if she doesn't want to;
and is learning just like you are as to what you want from her;
and is clumsy and sloppy at times and knows that you won't like it if she is too demanding, or if she learns faster than you.

One, who has her own set of friends, and that includes boys and even men at her workplace too, those, who she knows from school days and yet is willing to put all that on the back-burners to avoid your irrational jealousy, unnecessary competition and your inherent insecurities.

Yes, she can drink and dance just as well as you can, but won't, simply
Because you won't like it, even though you say otherwise.

One, who can be late from work once in a while when deadlines, just like yours, are to be met.

One, who is doing her level best and wants to make this most important, relationship in her entire life a grand success, if you just help her some and trust her.

One, who just wants one thing from you, as you are the only one she knows in your entire house - your support, your sensitivities and most importantly - your understanding, or love, if you may call it.

Treating her with respect, caring about her well-being and happiness, showing her that she matters. It means being faithful to her, honest with her, being there for her. It means going the extra mile to show her that
you're thinking about her.Treat the woman in your life with respect. It means putting her in high regard no matter who she is and where she came from.

Aiwa... Excellent, really few ladies can feel the resemblance. Nice. Should be published 30 years back. But it's too late. One Humble and kind request to replace the whole words 'her' with 'his/him'. Then 100% fit and perfect. We are spinning on 2009, not 1909.

That's probably one of the best forwarded mails I have read...I am not sure if I can comment on this, but this article should be read by both the genders...because, from the little things that I have seen, women tend to sort of underrate themselves and men tend to just think that whatever little they do is just wow,so much!!!

P.S: Whatever that I hv said above doesn't include everyone, just a big portion of our society... :D
