My eldest sister once said I need to smarten up and read more – like a whole book – and I started with ABCs. Then she gave a book – "The Famous Women". The first thing I learnt was that women need credit for every thing they do. I got into trouble for saying that aloud and she said the moment she took the road she would see signs that declare – "Men at work" and proclaimed that they don’t need such signs as "I’m cooking, washing clothes or doing dishes" in the kitchen. Then after a little while as I expressed my surprise at the first lady to fly aircraft over the ocean I exclaimed that she indeed maneuvered a fascinating feat by flying across the large ocean, without taking a break to visit the restroom. Further it is an accomplishment as there was no other lady to accompany her to the restroom, incase she had to visit. This broke the hell loose and my sister declared that all the great explorers were men – men who wouldn’t ask for directions. I couldn’t talk any further as I realized that she had more ammunition than I do. So I resigned (and read "The Famous Men").
I am not bitter, and am just expressing my testimony. ;-)
I am going back HOME on 29th December 2005 and shall return during the first week of February 2006.
My eldest sister - First child – a beacon & hope for the new generation, very organized.
My second sister Middle child - Sometimes she feels invisible.
Myself - Last child – have the right to cuddle up and act as a baby.
