The life cycle is all about coming and going, taking birth and giving last breath, life and death. One goes, another comes. It is said that the process of life and death in the world is running at the Nano second speed. Means that, if one person giving his last breath, another person is taking birth on that very second somewhere in the world, simultaneously. It happens this way. And nature has designed the mechanism of the world this way, it can’t be stopped. Humans live for only two things genuinely, one is marriage and the other is children. Man and woman, both species, when are unmarried, even living with their families, they both think about marriage and children in the same manner, with the same intensity and passion. Because both have the urge to be with a partner and a baby.
Speaking of which, a baby is the weakness of both genders. Some say that its a woman only, who have the yearning and tantalizing for the baby. And the man considers it a responsibility and burden only. However, this is explicitly wrong. Men are the type of human beings who are not so good with expressions and expressing their feelings and emotions. But that doesn’t mean, that they don’t have one. Men are actually quite a bit more sensitive and emotional than women. It’s just that, they don’t have the tendency to cry at everything and anything. That’s why, people assume that men are ruthless creatures. In fact, there are cases of ruthless and merciless women, in the world, who have drowned their own children or even one baby to death because they can’t take the responsibility. And there are also stories about the men and women who died out of love, in saving their baby from a scratch even. So, it’s not about men or women. It’s about the nature, inner progress and brooding of a person, that teach him or her to treat his/her baby.
