WOMEN EMPOWERMENT

Napoleon had said-“you give me good mothers and I will give you a good nation.” A woman can be said as the God’s complete creation. She is the mother of the race. She is the future of all generations. She is the one looking for when in trouble. She is the one on whose shoulders rest a billion lives. She is the pivot around which the family moves. She is the symbol of independence, caring, gentleness and intensity- both in love and in hate. Yes, she is a woman. Imagine a woman without being empowered means having no say, no might, and no right! What kind of generations will she bless a nation with? What kind of a place it would be to live in where economies would collapse, communities would fail and families would fall apart? The mere thought of imagining such a world leads to a storm of negative thoughts whirling around us, but still we fail to realize the precariousness of the situation. At the root of all problems is how boys and girls are looked at differently even within a family. As the great Shirley Chisholm once said-“ the emotional, sexual and psychological stereotyping of females begins when the doctor says- it’s a girl. We live in a world where one out of every three women worldwide have experienced physical violence. It’s a shame for...

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

Our ancient text says- “Keep pure! For the Earth is our mother! And we are her children!” Imagine 2 homes- one in the USA and the other one in the African region. Which one would you like to reside in? Most of you here would say the American one. Because not only is it more likely to be luxurious, one has more assurance of gender equality, higher levels of development, increased incomes, better living conditions in the States as compared to some humble dwelling in the African region. At the same time the African one is more likely to...

Patriarchal India

Indian culture has a place with the man since time immemorial. The lady has been given an optional and second-rate position in her family and society. She has been confronting shamefulness, concealment, persecution, enslavement and misuse in a male-commanded Indian culture. Disregarding being taught, she has been looked down on with hatred. She has been diminished to the status of a toy and a machine, a dormant protest used to satisfy men’s sexual want. She has been dealt with as an item to be utilized, controlled and discarded by the male individuals from society. She, a quiet and submissive individual from a male-overwhelmed society, a manikin that takes after five paces behind her man, a lifeless thing enduring by virtue of preference, standard traditions and customs, is relied upon to be noiseless, tolerant and persistent, but then delicate and benevolent, mindful and adoring, kind and accommodating ideal from the antiquated days.   However, similar to a man, she is conceived free, she is gotten in chains in a single manner or the other. She is miles far from flexibility from male-mastery profoundly established in a male-driven and male-centric culture with its customary convictions, superstitions, qualities and standards. The place and status equivalent to man should be given to her in different fields of life. She is more grounded and bolder than a man in many regards. The lady possesses...
