INTERNATIONAL WOMEN's DAY:
As International Women's Day was celebrated on 8th March, it is good to read what William Golding, the British Novelist and Poet, wrote - " I think Women are foolish to pretend they are equal to men. They are far superior and always have been.
Whatever you give a Woman, she will make it greater. If you give her sperm, she will give you a baby. If you give her a house, she will give you a home. If you give her groceries, she will give you a meal. If you give her a smile, she will give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what is given to her. So, if you give her any crap, be ready to receive a ton of s**t."
