Slowly, Aisha moves her hand on her big round shaped belly. She is having her own time with her baby who is resting in her womb.
“In a few days, you will enter this world. You will be able to see this world around, on your own. There are many beautiful places to see around, delicious food to taste, lovely aromas to smell and feel it. But, there are ugly things too, my child. There are a few obstructive people around who, hurt humans in many forms. They are demons in the form of human. They are sons of those mothers who curse and blame themselves for giving birth to such a devil. I know my baby, you don’t understand a few things, I am telling you right now, but, before you come out, I want you to say one thing. If you are a boy, respect every woman. Don’t shame me by disrespecting other woman’s dignity. And if you are a girl, I promise to keep you safe from the all the evil in this world . Always stand up for your respect and never feel ashamed.”
“Aisha, to whom are you talking to?” asked her husband Ajith.
“I am talking to our child. Teaching him or maybe her a few lessons which every child must be taught.”
Kissing his wife, Ajith says, ” oh and what did our child learn today?”
“To respect. Nowadays, the world is no more filled with love. Humans are killed in the name of religions, Womens are raped brutally in the crave for lust. Almost, everyday, we hear a woman being raped somewhere out there. Her soul is killed by the child of the other mother. Ajith, I want our child to learn a few things from now itself. They would learn to love, to share, to eat, to walk, once they are born in this world, but, to respect a woman must be taught even before they take a birth in this world which is filled with more terror and less love. I don’t know, who is breathing inside me, but, what if he is a son! So I am teaching one of the important lesson and that is, to respect every woman. I feel it’s the duty of all mothers to teach their children, how to respect every woman in the world. As not only a woman raped loses her dignity, but, the mother of the accused loses her too! The world in which our child is residing right now, is very different from the world we are living in. As it is said Ajith, a child learns many things when they are in their mother’s womb. So better our child starts learning this from now itself.”
Ajith kisses his wife’s belly and says, looking at her worried face, ” You are going to be a wonderful parent and proud mother of our child.”
