Women’s Day…

My day began with silencing the alarm vibration on my mobile phone, only to notice many good wishes, some motivational quotes, a few creatives–all wishing Happy Women’s Day.

A good start of the day.

Next, had a meeting. Went well.

Next, thought of carrying something for my colleagues; was wondering what, and there I saw a Mad Over Donuts (MOD) outlet. Ordered donuts, followed by the unexpected at the billing counter. The person asked me for identity proof, and I was thinking, “Since when did retail stores started asking for identity proof!” It took me by surprise, but on asking why, the reason stated made my day. It was to check my birth date as I get discount equal to my age.

Felt good to be old today! 🙂 😉

My next question was, “What if the customer is 75 years old lady?” It seems age limit for discount is 50, with conditions apply. But 50% discount too isn’t bad!

No, no…I am yet to be 50…long way to go, however, I liked the marketing initiative.

Well, donuts were great. They always are.

So far, the day has been good.

Have a great day ladies. And if you happen to come across an MOD outlet, I think it’s worth your time visiting today. 😉

‘I am strong, I am invincible, I am woman.’

Every Women’s Day reminds of the karaoke scene from the movie – Sex and the City-2.

‘I am Woman’ – a song written by Australian-American artist Helen Reddy and singer-songwriter Ray Burton – a beautiful song with lovely lyrics!

What is there to write, when the song says it all. Here are some of my favourite lines…

I am woman, hear me roar,
In numbers too big to ignore,
And I know too much to go back an’ pretend,
’cause I’ve heard it all before,
And I’ve been down there on the floor,
No one’s ever gonna keep me down again.

Oh yes, I am wise.
But it’s wisdom born of pain.
Yes, I’ve paid the price,
But look how much I gained.
If I have to, I can do anything.

I am strong STRONG.
I am invincible INVINCIBLE.
I AM WOMAN.

I am woman, watch me grow,
See me standing toe to toe,
As I spread my lovin’ arms across the land.
But I’m still an embryo,
With a long long way to go,
Until I make my brother understand.

Oh yes, I am wise.
But it’s wisdom born of pain.
Yes, I’ve paid the price.
But look how much I gained.
If I have to I can face anything.

I am strong STRONG.
I am invincible INVINCIBLE.
I AM WOMAN.

(I like Samantha’s lines, sung confidently, following the karaoke session: “I am a woman. I am at that table.” Wow character she is!)

So today, as I work, my day goes humming these lines…

And to all ladies out there, wishing you all a very Happy Women’s Day!

Hugs and Kisses to all the Carrie-Samantha-Charlotte-Miranda’s in my life!!!
