    I can remember the description given to the woman in the following manner.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER SILENCE rather than her speech.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER VEIL rather than her face.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER SUBMISSION rather than her leadership.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER SMILE rather than her laughter.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER PATIENCE rather than her inquisitiveness.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER ABOD rather than her adventure.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER OFFSPRING rather than herself.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER EXPERIENCE rather than her age.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER HEART DEPTH rather than her skin deep.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER KITCHEN rather than in cubicles.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER PERSPIRATION rather than her perfumes.
    The beauty of a woman lies IN HER LORD because HE is the creator of such a beautiful thing called “WOMAN”.
    If the beauty of a woman can be described as aforesaid, then it becomes a moral obligation for every citizen in the world to consider the women as their household deity, there won’t be violence against women. It is up to the religious leaders to uphold this value and preach how to respect the women. After all, if everyone realizes that every girl or woman of any category will eventually be a mother and it is a mother who will bear all the pains, then no person will dare to commit violence against women.
