What is my role as a mother? What is my role as a father? What is my role as a faculty? What is my role as a leader? What is my role as a director?…………The list is long. What is the word role and what it does to me?

Once we define the role we start fitting in to it. We start making a list in our mind: “okay, this all we are supposed to do to feel my job is done.” As soon as we start defining role aren’t we confining the scope? How can a role be so static if the life is dynamic?

These thoughts have occupied my mind from last few days. In a way I have started hating the word. I find it so limiting. Instead of defining my role I will prefer to understand the scope of the area in which I am involved.
