Posted on October 5, 2015March 14, 2019 by admin International Women’s Day Celebration at Chithra Don Bosco-13.03.2019 Being a woman!! Probably one of the most pleasurable and honorable part of a person’s existence. The day, as we understand, proves the default benefits of being a woman, we would not have to strive to be born as a male. International women’s day is just the right time to celebrate the subtle aspects of being a woman! She has the willingness to support, a patient heart, to listen to anything and everything, strength sufficient enough to find solution to problems and above all to withstand and hold any amount of pain and suffering. The beauty of her heart and her art of decorating other’s heart should be celebrated as much as possible. This beautiful creation of God! The angel on the earth, who makes our life a wonderful experience all together. Imagining life without a woman is quite hard and hitting. This angel shakes the cradle with one hand and the earth with the other hand. Hence women is that powerful.
