“A Society that does not respect women will perish”
History is a witness to the fact that whenever the dignity and modesty of a women has been outraged and challenged,it has brought devastating war and loss of huge human lives.If you have seen ‘Mahabharat’ TV serial or read it,you would recall when Bhishma Pitamah,the greatest warrior hero in Mahabharat,had once advised Yudhistir-“A society that does not respect women will perish”.When Sultan of Delhi,Allauddin khiljee invaded Chittorgarh in Rajasthan to outrage the dignity of Maharani Padmavati of Chittorgarh,it led to bloody war and huge loss of lives
It was the lack of respect towards the fairer sex that caused the two great wars in our Hindu epics-the 18 days battle of Mahabharat after Draupadi was humiliated in front of all men in the palace and in RAMAYAN,the war in Lanka when Sita was kidnapped by Ravana.
In my view,
- Since charity begins at home,the women in our home should be respected,protected and given equal rights in all matters.They should have their presence in all decision making process and have equal say in all home matters.They must have full freedom to identify their talents and explore their potential,regardless of whether it is your daughter,wife,sister or mother.
- The number of working women,today, is increasing by leaps and bounds in every field.Be it in the field of Business,Education,Corporate jobs,Civil services,IT,Space and what not, we all have to interact with women at the work places.Remember that men and women may think differently.It is a basic psychological difference.In today’s corporate world and other work places,men and women work together on a common project and they bring a different perspective,which must be respected.Now the top Management should ensure that there is a gender mix in every project.If you are an employee,demonstrate not only respect towards women,but also a receptiveness to their point of view.
- Last but not least,sexual harassment towards women is rampant at the work places.you must raise your voice against this prevailing practices and condemn this cowardice act in all forums.
- We all know even though women have become fighter pilots,space astronauts,renowned scientists,top police officers,Corporate CEO,Prime minister of a nation and have proved their credentials in every field,we still have a long way to go.It is a matter of shame when we still see a large number of infanticides(prevalent practices of killing infants) and a very low percentage of girl literacy,the prevailing evil practices of dowry.It is all so disgraceful and shameful.What is required is girl child must be educated and well educated and the nation will awaken and progress.Women should be empowered to effectively handle and implement any social work.
AND TO DO THIS,OUR PRIMITIVE AND FEUDAL MINDSET MUST CHANGE AND THAT WILL ONLY COME WITH RIGHT EDUCATION TO RURAL AND URBAN WOMEN.
