I stumbled on a lady few days ago and asked to see her ipad. 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 ipad were songs,videos and plenty of pictures...nothing else. I asked her if the Ipad 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 ipad 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,ipad 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.
