Guts and glory are innate human instincts. A few brave ladies, however, have taken the inherent ability to another level. Once in a while, there comes a story of a woman of substance and heroic character. These women are idols and make us follow them effortlessly in some or the other way. True heroism is remarkably sober, and is the urge to serve others at whatever cost.

Here’s a bow and grand salute to all those special women on this planet. Their deeds make them memorable and alive in hearts of all generations. Women like Azie Morton who valued education and gave back to the community through all she knew; Augusta Ada Byron developed the world's first computer program while struggling with her own personal hardships, Barbara Mc Clintock was one of the first woman genecists and a Nobel laureate; Chamique Holdsclaw is one of the most celebrated players in women's basketball; Clara Hale was the foster mother and founder of the Hale House, Edmonia Lewis defied restrictions on black women and achieved respect in the art community. These names may not be commonly heard by all, but these heroes never worked for fame but for emancipation of community as a whole. They are our real stars. There is so much to learn from them. Life holds  meaning and we are all here to justify that meaning! Let us try to be one of those who could make life large and inspirational. 

Life is always full of ups and downs. I have heard many times from people that they are fed up of their lives and don’t wish any longer. Those who understand the purpose of life and avoid nihilism completely will never utter these words. There is nothing mysterious about happiness. Spread joy and lead an eternally blissful life. Justify your life’s motive and be in the comfort knowing that everyone is able to make a difference in another’s life.
