Sometime before, I read Raj’s comment somewhere (its not carelessness that i forgot, its my short term memory loss :-P)…..Remembering that, I felt it was like “I dont know why we call Mother Nature not Father”
Hmm today suddenly, I felt I know why…..here’s what I think –
Here, calling Mother does not mean emphasizing on superiority of one sect of human kind….when someone says Mother…it has all together a different perspective……Mother is “someone who is capable of giving life…..who bears the pain of giving life to someone whom she instantaneously feels the love for…I remember Raj’s poem here (wonderful, different perspective do give it a read) !!
Mother is Life, miracle of Nature…..or may be Nature itself….”
When we say Mother India – we mean its from her we are all born….we mean we are all her kids!!
and so Mother Nature – Nature is from where we all evoluted from…..so She is the Mother 🙂
Why dont we call Father ? – Father is God [dont we call? be it any religion, we consider it to be Male)!!
Father is someone, whom we see and follow, learn our first steps, our first thoughts, our first opinions Our first friend (though many of us dont realise), philosopher, teacher…..
Someone who makes the life given by a Mother sustainable……and someone who makes us realise the value of that Life…….
In Hinduism we call it Shakthi and Shivam – Mother and Father of us all…not only human kind but all 🙂
Its the best example of harmony and equality of both the genders….Its the balance of Life…..
Its so evident in our day to day lives and in front of our eyes….but sad that rarely do we realise and notice it 😦
PS : @Raj – I somehow suddenly remembered your comment….And the poem is indeed wonderful 😀
