Have we ever wondered what would it be like a no woman land? A woman is the most precious gift of god to the paradise Earth. A woman has many incarnations- She is a daughter (whose world is her parents) a wife (life partner sharing all aspects of life from sorrow to joy, home maker) then a mother (a conceiver and giver of life), a grandmother (who is now old and has seen the worst to best) and so on and her responsibilities never end with increase in role her duties also grow stronger.
Across the globe we see celebration of Mother’s day or Father’s day with great enthusiasm, now Daughter’s day is too celebrated worldwide on the 4th Sunday of September. The day is celebrated to show love and honor to the girl child. This day is celebrated by giving gifts/ cards to all the lovely daughter’s by their parents. Like mother’s day and the Father’s days now we have greeting cards also made available and popularized to honor the celebration of daughter’s day.
Though not much is known about how the daughter’s day came into being but one legend suggests it was started by Tonja Lark in year 2005, the special relation she had with her “Grandfather”, the grandfather would take her out to shop, to see the doctor, buying her candies and cones which always brought a smile on her grandfather’s face. Tanja soon realized that all the senior citizens need love and affection and the idea of “Daughter for the day” came in existence.
This day is special to the entire girl child especially in India with the till date strong discrimination between male over female child and the stories of the womb killing. She is killed much before she can even come in this world, abortion demon or the sacrifice of the daughter in the honor killing which is still a popular sports played for the family name sake in many parts of India. Even though we have modernized to a great extend but the only thing that still remains to be parted the sad lingo song when a daughter is born. To remove the evil barrier of distinguishing between a male and a female child Daughter’s day came into being which is not too popularized in India.
Lets we all celebrate this day with great respect and love and caring to our daughter’s and making them aware that they are the MOST PRECIOUS PART OF OUR LIFE’S.
HAPPY DAUGHTER’S DAY
