Heart Of A Woman: The Simon/Pero Story


After looking at this photograph you might be getting lots of Negative or Positive thoughts in mind, but after knowing the reality of this photograph you might get tears in your eyes.

In Ancient Greece, an old man (Simon) was sentenced to hunger death, he was put in prison. The idea was to keep him hungry until his death.

His daughter (Pero) pleaded with the government to meet her father daily until his death. She was granted permission, she was checked by prison officers to ensure that she wasn’t carrying food for her dad.

Pero couldn’t see her dad dying of hunger. She looked at her father with the eyes of a caring mother. So, in order to save his life, she feed him breast milk on a daily basis.

When Simon remained alive for so many days without food, the government got suspicious of Pero. On one occasion the Prison guards caught Pero breastfeeding her father. The case was registered against her, but her selflessness won the heart of the jailor and he granted her dad his freedom.

The painting is one of the Europe costliest painting.

A woman is full of love and sacrifice, whatever the role she is playing in one’s life sometimes she can be a mother, sister, wife etc. WOMEN ARE THE BEST. You don’t need to be a feminist to have a heart of gold.

God bless all women.
