"A" woman's day!

Just read this news today and felt very happy about it. A family has married off its widowed daughter-in-law. This is among the few, if not the first instance of a family marrying off their widowed daughter-in-law. It's good to see that Nepali society is awakening to the consciousness of the supremacy of individual over society. Social or rather say religious norms and values that subordinated a woman's identity to either her father or her husband or her son are slowly withering away. I hope soon will be gone the days when a widowed woman wishing to remarry is ostracized or her wishes are frowned upon. The sheer amount of publicity and praises this news is getting is equally encouraging. I just hope it inspires more people to awake to the same consciousness. Happy women's day and may freedom prevail!
