Who Is Superior Between Men And Women?
Who Is Superior Between Men And Women?

What a question? How does the case of superiority arise here? That is the idea that is probably springing into your mind. I know you have the answer too. Most men will say that men are superior. They will have their reasons too. Some women will agree with the men and they will justify their case too. There are other women who will vote for women being superior. This is a question that we want to discuss here.

Men Being Superior
Those men and women who believe and read the bible will say that men are superior. Their argument will be based on the reason that God made men first. They will argue that God is a man because He made the first man in his image and likeness. So men are superior because they are like God. Women, they will argue was made as an afterthought and so she is inferior to men.

I have no problem with the creation story though I might not agree with this theory. Does it mean that if you create a thing first that it becomes superior to the latter? Is it not that the latter may be perfected to be even more superior to the former. If we go to the garden of Aden, we see the lady taking the first step in disobeying God. If she was inferior, would she have convinced the first man to disobey God?

Women Being Superior
Women happen to be the mother of the universe. It seems that all were because the woman wanted them to be. It is the woman who takes care of all the world. She overworks herself for her family. It is the woman who has the final say in family matters. How can you call this creature inferior? The home belongs to women.

Final Submissions
Will a leg tell the hand that since it is the one that walks then it is superior to it? Oh, no! All are members of the same body with different functions. It is the same with the family. Each member has to work towards a common goal, a happy and prosperous family.

None is therefore superior here. None either, is equal to the other. Each should play his or her part and respect the other.

Is a pumpkin a fruit or a vegetable? That is maybe one of the disturbing questions when we talk of the pumpkin.

Are You A Newbie?
baby-Are You A Newbie

Are You A Newbie?

Who is a newbie in the real sense of the word? I came across this word in Bubblews, a site that went over.


When you were called a newbie it meant that you were new. It also meant that you do not really know how to go about in the site. You needed somebody to tell you how.


My assumption then is that a newbie is a new person. It is the opposite of oldie. New does not mean that you have been born anew. No! It means you are a beginner.’ Bie’ must be a coining of ‘by’. The word means by way of. The word is used like in passerby means a person who is passing. Newbie also is not permanent. It may be the name which should pass or the person.


It beats me how long we should call a person a newbie. What will qualify him to be an oldie! Is it his work or his staying for long? Maybe we should judge him by how good he is in maneuvering his way around a site, company or any other.


How long should it take for a visitor to be a host? This is quite a challenging question. You may say that a visitor will always be a visitor and likewise a host. You are probably right. What if a visitor overstays the visit? He is no longer a visitor but a host.


The visitor who overstays his visit will know all his ways round your home. He will assist in the normal activities of the home. He may know where all the property of the home is kept.


The same applies to a newbie. He is no longer a newbie if he knows his way around the site or company. E can explain the site or company better than its owners. That is an oldie now.

Which Books Did You Read As A Young Person?

 Which Books Did You Read As A Young Person?

Reading makes a writer and most writers are good readers. You are writers because of those amazing books that you read. Good books nurture language and make good scholars. Did you come across these books?


Treasure Island

A group sets out to go to Treasure Island to look for hidden treasure. Among the group is a small boy by the name of Jim Hawkins. During this dangerous and adventurous journey, the boy comes face to face with pirates. There is one with one limb as the other was cut off.


The story is very enjoyable and I cannot recall all that I read in this book. Was the treasure found? Yes, but it brought war and many deaths. This is one of the books which sharpened me and prepared me for the task which was ahead.


Tom Thumb

This was another of the books that I read as a child. It talks of a boy who was as tiny as a thumb that his parents named him Tom Thumb. As much as they tried to feed him well, he remained as tiny as a thumb. The boy was however, very clever.


One day his father, who was a woodcutter, fell sick. The boy offered to fetch firewood for the dad. He was put in a donkey’s ear where the boy commanded it where to go. Curious men had to follow the taking donkey and were the ones who assisted the boy to pack firewood on the donkey. They put him back into the ear and he ordered it on.

The men however, had other ideas. They wanted to buy the boy to use him in acting. What a proposal!


Did they buy the boy? Yes they did. Yet adventure after adventure befell the boy as he tried to escape from the men. He was swallowed by a cow. It was slaughtered and the intestines plus the boy inside thrown away. It was swallowed by a hyena. It took the boy in its bowels home.


Quite interesting indeed! I loved to read and re-read it.


Oliver Twist

This is a boy who was in a home whereby they were served with very little food. Asking for more was unheard of. Yet Oliver Twist asked for more which brought him into great problems. I read the book but do not really know how the story ended. You may know it and feel like completing it for us.


These books and stories were very good. Are they still in the market? I would like to read them again. I wonder who the authors of those books were!

How Was Measles Managed In The 60’s?

How Was Measles Managed In The 60’s?

Measles used to be and is still one of the killer diseases in the world. It used to be feared so much that it got the nickname of ‘the school disease’. Once it attacked one child in a family, it easily moved to another. It used to claim many lives.


Measles was more deadly than HIV/AIDS. By then diseases like Ebola and Hepatitis B were not known. Diseases of the likes of High pretension and Diabetes were little known.


The control of measles was a very big threat to society. Doctors by then were still working on immunization of the disease. Vaccines had not been discovered. That is what was happening in the 60’s. That was a pathetic situation in the making.


              image credit/yolanda/pixabaysouth-africa-163062_960_720

The management of the disease in the village was worse. In my village for instance, A twig was planted in all the paths that led to the homestead that had a measles patient. This was to deter anybody to move into and out of the homestead. Going to the shops and the river was a problem to the members of the family.


The village headmen insured that the rules were obeyed. In such all family members who had not been sick with measles caught the disease. It is known that measles does not attack twice. In case somebody died in the family, it was the duty of the family members to bury him. Other members of the village never assisted in the burial.


Treatment of measles was always done traditionally. Cannabis sativa leaves boiled in water and used to wash the sick was the treatment used. There were other herbs too but their effectiveness was minimal.


Many died of this disease. Though vaccines have been discovered and the disease is almost managed, reports from WHO indicates that the war is not yet over.


How was measles managed in your area? Was it a problem in the 60’s?

Mommy, no, mommy

What is this thing so prickly?

It pierces so deep without mercy

No mommy, no, I am bleeding profusely

My blood with the ocean mix thoroughly

What is this thing?

What is his pain?

Why this sudden interruption?

Why stop this bliss so peaceful?



Mommy, no, mommy!

Stop this madness

Stop this messy mess

Save my dear sole so defenseless

Am sinking from my bliss

My days are cut into pieces

Am out from the bliss

Into the pain filled mess

Oh mommy, no

Stop this madness.




Down I fell to the ground

I was not dead but sound

Yet mommy is nowhere around

Come back mommy

Do not leave me here

I still need your love

I still need your care

Though am badly wounded

Am still your child

My heart beats and pound

Yet in sight there’s no sound

Save me mommy



I have no life

There is in me much grief

My life has been stolen by a thief

Who threw me down a cliff

And left me

Threw me away

To die

To rot

In this garbage



Why me?

Why me to suffer such?

Was I not like other children?

No, mommy, no, tis painful
