Becomes the first house of the man and yet it’s ironical, that its the woman that seeks a shelter all her life. As she grows up she leaves her house and her family to start a new life with her husband and then her own womb becomes the place where life comes to existence and get’s nurtured. Years of duality and other kind of “loves” doesn’t let man do justice even to the woman he calls mother.

There’s the Bani of Nanak that does justice to the status of a woman in society and then this Vaar by Bhai Gurdas Ji.

The Woman – Bhai Gurdas Ji

Vaar 5 Pauri 16

At birth a Sikh girl is ‘darling’ to her mother and father/Later, she becomes admired by her brothers and sisters and favoured by her relatives /On attaining to ” the bloom of youth” she is wedded with costly gifts and presents /Now, respected by her husbands family and deemed lucky in her new household, she regarded as the equal of her spouse in both virtue and wisdom /She becomes as a doorway to salvation.

This beautiful verbal portrait written by Bhai Gurdas Ji not only makes you appreciate the beauty of a woman and but also puts ones mind in their creator too.
