I stumbled on a lady few days ago and asked to see her i pad. It was so
neatly packaged I had to comment on it and took permission from her to
view some files. Suffice it to say that the only things I found on that i pad were songs,videos and plenty of pictures…nothing else. I asked
her if the I pad was a special type of multimedia that does nothing else
save for the above. I got a numb answer. Good,so I made up my mind that
she uses it “just” as a camera,music player and Real player….where is
Steve Jobs please? Was this not the reason he invented iPod? For several
ladies in Africa and most especially Nigeria, abuse of techs is their
stock in trade. Now don’t get me wrong,I’m not saying that all those
things is not meant for that purpose but given the type of device,some
functions are primary while others are secondary.
I respect beautiful ladies…my mum,two sisters and my other rib are
living witnesses to that fact. And they’re also aware that when you
combine that beauty with intellect,I’m totally yours. We need more
intelligent and beautiful ladies in our world today. The ones that will
use their i pad to solve problems and not snap pictures at every given
opportunity. We need women who will stand up to men and complement us.
You all seek for equality but I seek complement.
Why? Because we know
that right from creation,the equation was balanced by nature and
credence given to complementing us. What it simply means is that you
bring to us what we don’t have and we will join forces to make it whole.
Beauty is good. Intelligence is better. But when there is a sweet romance and perfect combination of both;greatness awaits you.
I love progression and I’m happy many women are rising to the challenges
of the day and taking control of their destiny. This gives me even
greater joy because I know its already a foregone conclusion that the
making or marring of a man is from a woman. So what? We need to train
more women to take up more roles in the society. They may not head all
the affairs. Equality may be utopian in the nearest posterity and we all
know that. But with the right training,beauty and hard work,I believe
women will salvage more situations for us in this nation. To every Eve
on this planet,i pad is not only for snapping pictures,use it to make
your voice heard. I believe in you. Greatness awaits you. Till we get to
the Promised Land,I shall be waiting for when you will pass me a glass
of water and thank God for the gift of grace for the race.
