GIRLPOWER RULES!!


Today was International Women’s Day and suddenly we got all carried away by the entire girlpower thing!! So some 15 of us girls decided to go out and celebrate the spirit of womanhood without the guys. Now this was the first time we went as an all-girls group, but surprisingly, it turned out to be an awesome night.
Usually I am the anti-feminist kind, I don’t like the concept of “Women’s Day”, I don’t like reservation for women (be it in the parliament or in the bus) and I definitely don’t like to go out ONLY with girls! In fact, I have grown up in a co-ed school and 15 cousin brothers- I played with marbles and balls as a kid instead of barbies; I have more fun discussing sports with my dad than in the kitchen with mom and generally, I am more comfortable with men than with women.
But today, somehow when we trooped into the prim Tamanna Executive, a group of 13 rowdy girls, I experienced a different kind of high! The conversation was totally out of control, and it invited strange, unappreciative looks from all corners but we couldn’t care less. And I am sure, if the children present there paid attention to our discussions, their “knowledge” would have been enriched manifold! The only concern that kept us slightly in control was the possibility of getting thrown out of the restaurant.
It was kind of a liberating experience- we are sooo much better as a species than the male sex!! Thank god, I am a girl (I will try to remember it every time I crib about guys having an unfair advantage over us)
