……is a relative word. When the boss says “I want this soon” she’s actually saying “ I want this yesterday”. When the mother says “You should clear the kitchen soon.” She means get off the couch and clean up now. When the maid says she will clean away the cobwebs on the walls “soon” she actually means never. When I say I will do this task soon, I mean I will do it sometime in the future, exact date, day and time unknown.
That’s precisely why you can’t say I am late for this tag. I only told Monika I would take up the tag “soon”. Today is soon As per the tag I am to put my self in a man’s shoes and come up with a list of five women I would find attractive. Its not an easy task when you don’t quite know how you would be as a man cause you’ve never been one. 😉 So what I am going to do is make up a list of five women that I like either for their beautify, intelligence or talent. I am sure if I were a man I would be attracted to independent, talented, pretty women. Anybody would!
Sushmita Sen- makes it on the list for a number of reasons. A- she’s pretty, b- she has a mind of her own and is what I would categorise as intelligent and c- she’s single and has adopted a baby!(don’t tell me other women have too. How many of them are famous Indian women that we all are familiar with?) There arent too many pictures of the lady with her kiddo on the web so we will have to make do with this not-so-great pic.
Gaytri Devi- has been shamelessly whacked off Solilio’s post. She mentioned her and when I saw that name on her post, I just had to have it on mine too. Thats because the Maharani is too pretty, too poised , too graceful to ignore. Plus she goes with the title Maharani, making her sound all regal and impressive. Thanks for the idea Solilio, I might have not thought of her had I not read your list!
Hema Malini- now not then. Then was when she was she was a hoarse sounding, strange accent speaking, slightly squarish looking actress. Now is when she is a diva. Try not killing me for saying unkind things about Ms.Malini when she was young, I sincerely dint like anything about her when she was in her prime. I think she is one of those women who are like wine- they get better with age. I think the present Hema Malini is what dreams are made off- she’s dignified (she was that back then as well), in fabulous physical state, has skin better than anyone half her age,dances beautifully, loves her two kids and looks genuinely happy. I dont know too many 50 plus who can do all that.
Asha Bhosle- with talent like that, who can resist?
Madhubala– I am not even going to explain why she’s on the list, you know exactly why.
All pictures courtsey-who else?Google images.
I notice this has turned out to me more of a list of women I admire than a list of women I would be attracted to. But what the heck, a tag is a tag and you are allowed to tweak it a bit. Consider this one tweaked.
I don’t know if you’d agree to this, but I think Raja Ravi Verma made some of the best portraits of Indian women ever. Take for example these three-
Lady with a lamp
These are some of the most expressive pictures of women I have ever seen. What do you think?
