The Unparalleled Power of Motherly Instincts

In today’s world, where societal norms and expectations are constantly evolving, the role of women is often questioned and debated. There are those who try to demotivate and devalue the sacred nature of motherhood, labeling it as a mundane and unglamorous task. However, I consider myself fortunate to have been born in an era when women embraced motherhood with open arms, driven by pure love rather than societal pressure.

Love is an innate and spontaneous emotion that cannot be manufactured or forced.

It flows naturally from a mother’s heart, unadulterated and selfless. I vividly recall moments with my own mother, bedridden during the last years of her life. Despite her physical limitations, she would eagerly await my arrival for lunch, taking delight in watching me enjoy the meal she had specially prepared. It was her maternal affection, her “vatsalya,” that brought her joy. How could I possibly deny her that pleasure?

There is a common notion that Bengalis, like myself, tend to live with their parents even in their 40s and beyond. And why not? Our parents, and indeed most parents, are a wellspring of unconditional love. Why would I relinquish the opportunity to bask in that affection? What alternative could possibly compare? Climbing the corporate ladder, amassing wealth, and shouldering the burdens of countless employees with varying motivations and intentions? That path is not for everyone, and it certainly isn’t for me. Each person has their own preferences and priorities. Some choose to create thriving organizations, generating employment opportunities, while others find contentment in a 9-to-5 job. It is a personal choice, and it does not make anyone a failure.

Women are capable of achieving anything men can.

If they aspire to be doctors, engineers, police officers, or chefs, they can excel in those fields. Admittedly, women have had to fight hard to reach this point, given the atrocities and oppression they faced throughout history. They were often reduced to being mere baby-making machines or objects of male desire. Fortunately, times have changed, and women have been granted the rights and freedom to make their own decisions.

Let us remember that motherhood is not outdated or antiquated.

It is a primal instinct deeply embedded in women. It is worth noting that women are born with a finite number of eggs, which gradually diminish with age. Ideally, decisions regarding marriage and childbirth should be made before the age of 30, or at the most, 35. This ensures that both body and mind are spared unnecessary ordeals.

In conclusion, motherhood is a divine gift, an extraordinary journey filled with immeasurable love and joy. Let us celebrate the remarkable power of a woman’s maternal instincts and cherish the bond between a mother and child. It is through these precious connections that humanity finds its truest and most profound purpose.
