Viva women: I salute her for her patience
Dhiraj Bellara

Get news updates:What's this?
March 22, 2007

On March 8, Women's Day, we invited readers to celebrate the woman who made a significant difference to their lives. We asked them to tell us why this woman was special and send us a photograph. This series features the best entries.

I have been waiting for this chance to write some thing about the woman who inspires me. I take this chance to write about my wife, my soul mate -- Taanya Bellara.

We have been married for more than a year now. In this span of time, I feel I have started respecting her more and more every single day.

She is 24 years old and yet I see a very mature woman in her. Someone who knows to care and some one who can bear with me all my life with all my flaws (I am short tempered, lazy and moody at times).

Even though she is so young, she knows her responsibilities and knows she has to fulfill every one of those. She does maximum she can with a big heart and a broad smile. She is a working woman, yet she makes it a point that she is with me in a spectacularly good mood in the evening.

She has never thrown any tantrums that she is tired or she has had a bad day in office. She makes it a point that she has to keep her self jolly and going so that my tiredness can vanish on seeing her.

She can make a very good career but knows that if she does that, the house will suffer. Hence, she has sacrificed all good opportunities that come her way just for me and my household.

I have my ups and downs, for which she is always there, not bothering about her moods. Although I am not able to support her properly through her lows, I try to learn from her. There are a lot of things which I still need to give attention to, but she has been patiently waiting for all those things without complaining or grumbling.

I salute her for her patience, sacrifice, her big heart and all the love she has for me.

She is human and she has moods; I can understand that and I know she loves me a lot. I want to tell her through this forum that I respect her and love her a lot.
