"Women are the backbone of all societies. They do a substantial part of the work, and play a major role in raising the future generation yet they are largely powerless. The decisions that count are made by men and foisted upon women."

Time – IV. When Does Time Starts?

Technically, time starts when we are born. But this is a case where it is futile to start the clock at zero. A child retains few early memories. The birthday parties means friends, fun, pizza, and cake. He cannot conceive that its birth is celebrated. His mind cannot encompass such a concept. That being the case, when does time starts?

I was seven years old. It was the first day of school. The teacher introduced herself and then went to the blackboard and wrote the date. The year is what attracted my attention, really mesmerized me. Something clicked in my mind, this was the year we were at; in a way, the first tangible year in my life. Previous years simply did not exist; there are a few events that I remember, but I cannot tie them to years. That incident stayed in my mind and, years later, I recounted it to my son. Lo and behold! Seven was also the age when he became aware of the passing time. What about you, did your life also start at seven?
