It was national girl child day and the only thing I could think of was to try to feel as powerful as possible. As the day is dedicated to girl children, it should bring enough feminism spirit in me. But, then again, I could not think of hovering on the fact that, no matter what I do, I must work harder to show my potential. Gloomy things apart, I am honoured to witness such day, but we need to understand the true dedication behind celebrating it.

Of course girls are privileged creatures. They are privileged enough to understand the hardships from very young age so that they can become a compassionate creature to help some amateur minds later in their lives.
Girl child day is less about bringing power in girls and more about stimulating their buried confidence.
