Woman.

As it happens so often in my life,  two different sources sent me two different links to two different you tube offerings but, on the same subject on the same day. The first one is about a mother and the second about a wife.

Both appealed to me and also affected me deeply and I want to share it with my readers. Though both are presented by Indians, their messages are universal and applicable to all mothers and wives. I hope that these two videos touch my readers as much as they touched me.

The first video is by Hari Sankar…a Grandmaster in Chess who has won a slew of awards…at one stage he was in the top 5 or 7 in the world..like Viswanathan Anand, it was his mother who was the motivating force to take up Chess. He is from Andhra Pradesh.  Despite trying to be funny, he manages to convey a profound statement about motherhood and women.

The next one is from an older man who while presenting the poem is quite affected.

  1. The first video is not a stand up comedian. He is Hari Sankar…a Grandmaster in Chess and has won a slew of awards…at one stage he was in the top 5 or “7” in the world..like Viswanathan Anand, it was his mother who was the motivating force to take up Chess. He is from Andhra.

  2. That second video hit far to close for comfort and reminded me of just how lonely I have been since I watched Lynn die. God but the things I would say to her now and the things I should have said to her, this one really hurts.

  3. my father… her husband was gone when she grew ill and suffered and died.
    yet the words in that second video were about her. she had that quiet gentleness. and selflessness. and a wonderful sense of humor!
    and she had made my growing up life fun. and SAFE. and somehow ‘normal’ despite all the moves and upheavals that brings to youth. thank goodness I wrote her a letter once.
    telling her all those things. but I knew it was NEVER enough!
    and I see why the old gentleman broke down.
    thank you Rummy. xo

  4. The second one I thought about my mother who died so young, leaving teenagers . Tears.

    The first one was upsetting. I really don’t believe men can talk of feminism without having lived the life of no male privilege.
