  1. Congrats, Prathima!

    Must say here that I am an atheist, so in principle at least, god’s gender is irrelevant to me.

    But I realize that the vast majority of people do, in fact, believe in some kind of personal god, so god’s gender is definitely important from a sociological perspective.

    He/She is the fair thing to say lol.

    But here’s a quote from the legendary George Carlin (in reference to rampant death, destruction, disease, poverty, filth, torture and general misery seen in the world):

    “…I firmly believe, looking at these results, that if there is a God, it has to be a man. No woman ever could or would f*** things up like this!”

    Food for thought. πŸ˜€

      • Well, it’s a joke, I guess. Not to be taken seriously.

        But in a workplace context in a male-dominated profession like mine, it has a tiny grain of truth to it. It’s not a general fact but in many female employees (especially in India), I’ve seen this tremendous drive to excel and outperform. It’s similar to the drive that quite a few people from underprivileged backgrounds have. They are out to prove a point to the world. And in my experience, those who are out to prove a point, and are willing to work for it, rarely miss their goals.

        But yeah, it’s not true for all women in general.
        And compassion is definitely not a feminine prerogative.
