My Prologue to 'What women really want?'

A Wise Woman Kisses, But doesn't LOVE
Listens But doesn't Believe
And....
Leaves Before she is LEFT


"Marilyn Monroe"

The quote is from none other than the 50's sex goddess, the super glamorous Hollywood actor with alluring beauty. Well, the first thought that flashed through my head on reading this was 'If someone as evolved as her, thought on those lines, there surely has to be some meaning to it and there has to be, a relating incident'. The world as always has been marveled at the thought of decoding 'What goes inside a woman's mind?'

And this is how I started on my journey, of trying to look inside me and million other women, like me. Marilyn Monroe's cause was the closest since she was a star icon who worked her way to stardom and glory. What could have been a better starting point? So, I always had the gut feeling that people like her can never be maligned and always speak their mind out. From what her first love revered her as, she was a 'sweet, generous and religious girl'. What could have been that incidence or may be a series of incidences that brought this sweet and simple orphan girl from rugs to riches and later to a mental institution, on account of the psychological problems she had?

She belongs to the era when women were eyed as creatures that need to be cared for and controlled by the men in their lives. Yet she struggled, survived and gave many a men chase for their fortunes.

Somewhere, sometime she said "I don't mind living in a man's world as long as I can be a woman in it." She knew it clear, how men in 60s thought and perceived women, never more than object of desires to be cared and caged.

She once said "He [Arthur Miller] wouldn't have married me if I had been nothing but a dumb blonde."

Every statement that she made speaks volume about her. Be it cosmetology, relationships, personality, men or her work.

Another wonderful quote from her goes like this "I want to grow old without face lifts. I want to have the courage to be loyal to the face I have made." What could better exemplify a strong persona than having the courage to be loyal, to what you were and would always be.

Another beauty legend from the past who inspires me to think through and shuffle through the layers of sheets that snuggle comfortably around a woman's heart is 'Audrey Hepburn'. She quoted:

I believe in PINK.
I believe that laughing is the best calorie burner.
I believe in kissing, kissing a lot.
I believe in being strong when everything seems to be going wrong.
I believe that HAPPY girls are the PRETTIEST girls.
I believe that tomorrow is another day and I believe in MIRACLES.


What else could be told of women and what goes inside her head? I strongly believe, women need individuality, respect, equality just like men do and they prefer speaking their heart out, until and unless they fear they could be offending someone, they care for. Women have the will power and strength that can never be shattered, no matter what. She simply wants to be appreciated for what she is and what she wants to be. She needs someone she can confide in and someone who can trust her enough, so as not to even consider cheating or hiding even a simple incident. She is just too simple, to be looked through and thought of. Men just need a heart to get to know her but most of them, end up putting their brains to all the work. She stands like a pillar, tall and strong and always looks at the rosy side of incidences. She is optimistic to the core. She is always pretty in her own way, child like, pristine and pure. That's why its said that "Women are the God's best creation"
