Creativity has come to be defined by the product. In truth, creativity is a state of being, a way of meeting the challenges involved in bringing any project to completion. A five-year-old drawing a house can be just as creative as a fifty-year-old designing an office building. A mother feeding her baby while reading to her three-year-old is quite as creative as a director balancing the needs of two actors. Any one of these women might be immersed in the creative flow or they might simply be getting the job done. It all depends on their relationship to the process. The difference between acting creatively and engaging in a routine activity has more to do with the outlook of the woman than the desired result. Creativity involves being open and aware of the task at hand. If our mind is racing with thoughts of what we must do tomorrow or concern about an upsetting incident that happened last week, it is almost impossible to get into the creative flow. In some situations we simply have to accept that something must be done. There is no choice but to get on with it in spite of these distractions. The undertaking becomes a rote occupation while the mind wanders elsewhere. But the soul seeks creative space to thrive.
Women must find a way to take time to observe, listen, and let in all that our senses can bring us. We need moments when we can assimilate all this information; time for the reverie that allows our intuition to dance with our analytical minds. This process feeds our spirit and we discover that miracles can come of this union. Often in this state we discover a sense of timelessness. How satisfying it is to patiently help a child put a puzzle together or to cut out the pieces for a quilt with full attention on patterns and color. Even planning a staff meeting for the next day is far more productive and satisfying if a businesswoman is fully engaged in the plan rather than dwelling on what she might fix for dinner or wondering if she will make it to the day care center on time.
Creativity may be a joyous experience, deeply moving, or it might touch us with old grief. In the creative state we are fully open and without walls of denial surrounding us, feelings flow freely and are sometimes painful. A memory comes to my mind of helping a troubled boy read a story in a textbook about the last blue whale. The story was on about the third grade level and hardly great literature. When the reading was done there were tears in my eyes. The boy, a fifth grader, was a bit uncertain about my reaction but sympathetic. That memory comes back, time and again. Fostering your creativity will bring enjoyment in the process of working toward goals and satisfaction with accomplishments. But creativity doesn't promise that there will be no barriers, no frustrations, and no failures. Instead creativity will reach into your deepest self; it will continually press and challenge you.
Creativity is a process of transformation and once you seek the truly creative life there is no turning back.
Today women are so well polished, educated and creative for their work. If we look back to our Indian history, women are an added advantage. We should remember the names of Sarojini Naidu, Jhansi ki Rani Laxmibai and Rani Ahilyabai who brought a huge difference in our society. Our culture gives respect to women. Women are acknowledged as maa. The maa Shakti , which includes goddess Gaytri, Ambe, Parvati, Saraswati and all the women in individual who are the real mother to thousands of children. The mothers who conceive, bring them into this world with greater pain, and grow them in a fantastic ways. These women are creative, cultural, and creator.
Women of India are very devotional and play different roles. They live for their father before marriage, after marriage life is for husband and lastly for son. The most devotional nature that can be given to her is the role played for maa. This quality is found no where. Hence, they are the real shakti.
Nowadays women are educated and they take part in major roles of country’s parliament. Their creative mind helps country to grow. They are also able to use internet hence can exchange their ideas to the world. Women are just not restricted to housework these days. They play the role of entrepreneurship, owe business, make plans and also help the husband in his business. They look after their house, husband’s work and simultaneously bring up their children.
At the end I would say our Indian women have more of patience, devotion and strength.
