Pretty kicked after having watched April 9th’s Mahabharata Episode( a series I do not follow, but was urged to watch by my GF’s).. 4 key takeaways
- Draupadi most certainly was the earliest empowered and emancipated woman
- Faith is the precursor to all things miraculous, faith in herself and her choice of her protector/God made all the difference.. she didnt doubt him and surrendered and then miracles unfolded
- She believed in her purity and greatness, especially, pertinent today when women get blamed for rape and other atrocities and the perpetrators aren’t. She wasn’t a victim but she made those who maligned her and those who stood by watching realize , that they definitely were, Victims of their ego, false sense of power and personal weaknesses..
- She stood for herself first, she didn’t hesitate to say No, show her anger and definitely didn’t want to please anyone…Women have to trust their self , even if that means being selfish…ultimately Draupadi was liberated in her thoughts and her actions and didn’t need validation of her power from others…
Now that what makes you a super-woman!!!
