Routines- out from one and trapped in another

It has been identified that the human mind has a potential to classify things and order actions in order to process the world. In our day to day affairs these well-set order and sequential character of our actions define our existence. Routines have been a part of human life from time immemorial. We are all part of a routine and settle into the most comfortable one. When bored we wriggle free from one routine only to make a new one or to enter into an already existing one. This could be because of the routines we see in nature. The sun rises, sets, moon ascends into the zenith, wanes away, there is day and night, and so on. When trapped in a routine we will be in a constant strife to lose it, but it is also a notable fact that out of the routine we will be like a fish out of water deliberately trying for a new order, a new routine. Being part of a routine has become a habit.

Women's Day : What are women designed for??

Yet another women's Day arrives showering wishes and gifts on women. But will the general concept of women that are promoted so eagerly by the media be erased by one day of fiddling upon the power of women?
A few days ago I watched in shock where a serial actress in a talk show was arguing about the power of women and out of the left came a blow  when she argued that women are designed to gossip! How eccentric! is that the power of women? Well i think she really needs to think if it is all that she does. Out of every duties of women we see household chores as the prime duty of every  women! If i am to seriously exclaim at such outrageous concepts i am pretty sure that i can go on exclaiming forever.
Are women seriously designed to gossip? Grace and charm are thought to be bestowed on women and men should be rough and tough. All that i know from the religious concepts that were meant to shape a society is that male gods are usually passive and resort to sweet words and calm advices and the Goddesses equipped with far more weapons to almost an uncountable number. Action and anger defined the goddesses, who when provoked sheds out the gentle nature to spring at her enemies. And still how can these concepts be diminuted into the inferior task of a gossiper! And that too defined as a strength! I still haven't recovered from the shock. In fact arguing on the true strength of women is being done Internationally on this Women's Day and there is nothing that i can point as the power of a woman as the understanding has been embedded into each of our psyche throughout ages. This post is just an eyeopener into the concept of women held by a serial actress. Gossiping! i'm pretty sure that she can think better. This, i suppose is the pathetic level of self-awareness among women, or perhaps she has been engrossed a bit too much into the commercial concepts of women. Perhaps its mere ignorance. ...
