In a country as diverse as India, who pioneered the whole world through its immaculate expertise during ancient time riding on divinity are now, leaving no stone unturned to demean the same, whom they worshiped as deity few years back. Why women are always the stalks, in India? If one turns back the pages of history, the pages are witness of the vigor, sense, humanity and respect, women in India hold. The country, where majority of heads idolizes goddess (women), take inspirations from its rich past where women grew as the ambassador of peace, love and left the trails of divinity behind their stories (Goddess Sita, Parvati, Laxmi), which has billions of emulators as of now, how stratospherically it has stunted to double standards, where one side they arrive at temples, to offer prayers to their power goddess and on the other side they bombard to insult the women, ignore their demands, push them out of mainstream, exploit them and finally turn an ungrateful men? Hindus who follow the great scripture on Hinduism “BHAGAWAD GEETA” (which as of now earning great acceptance worldwide due to its relevant subjects) says WHOEVER TAKES REFUGE IN ME, WOMEN, VAISHYAS AND SHUDRAS AND EVEN THOSE BORN IN THE WOMB OF SIN, THEY TOO WILL REACH ME, THE HIGHEST GOAL.
They why we turn averse to the sermons, whom we worship with profuse sanctity and impeccability? Women in India are left asides, blamed for theirs good acts also in a patriarchal society, ignored their protests and harassed? Why, who will answer this? When we will understand that way to divinity, heaven and peace lies in the way we live, the way we treat with the beautiful creatures on the planet?
The recent of all atrocities, women in India faces is the breaking of the 16 year-long fasting by activists IROM CHANU SHARMILA against the controversial Army Force Special Power Act (AFSPA) in Manipur. A girl who puts strenuous efforts for the welfare of the people of the nation is incarcerated; her human rights are seized, abused and left at the bay. Government kept on changing but no one did take stricter steps to address the grievances put forward by her for public wellbeing. If the protest would have been leaded by men, like tycoon RAMDEV, India’s top ministers arrive at the protest site to placate and pacify him, fulfill his demand. Then why IROM was left, no one reached for talks with her. Every government undermined her protest stirred by her. Single reason, despite knowing AFSPA cannot be fully repealed, yet some rooms for dilutions of codes remains, she was looked down on by politicians in India as she is a woman. She is ignored.
Lord BUDHHA said in India, mother is the centre of life, family and she is our highest ideal. She is to us the representative of the god as god is the mother of the universe. Every good Hindu believes, that my mother was pure and holy, and hence I owe her everything that I am. That is the secret of the race chastity. One side we worship lord BUDHAA, other side we exacerbate his preaching. Since the independence India has been assumed as patriarchal society, and people have taken this assumption in wrong way where they take it as granted to attack women on every possible issue.
Pre – Marital rape remains a big issue even after education is rapidly spreading in the society. A number of girls in India suffer from pre-marital rape. It’s all due to the lack of government’s backing to the resources to thwart such moves and execute the brutal perpetrators quickly, novice relationships, deceiving, socialist crimes and collusion. Now what appears the biggest threat is that girls suffering from these ill practices do not find any proper law in IPC to get their rights, lead to a prosperous life. These girls find the way very tricky, full of thorns and slippery to continue their lives as they don’t have any backing from a fake feminist society and whence from government. They suffer the hell of pandemonium on the beautiful place on the universe to live in, nevertheless.
Similar is the situation in the case of divorced and widows, who lose the company of their partners in the mid way the journey. Now for the women, holding any children, India is reluctant to providing many essential amenities to such children like passports and visas. They keep the father’s name column mandatory. After all why can not a mother’s presence suffice for their future? How much fake feminism, you will juxtapose after your negligence and ignorance.
The predicament of the women in the country is further depicted by the obstinate and insensible comments made by politicians. RRS chief says, rape happens due to short skirts, girls wear. Mulayam Singh says boys are immature, they commit rape sometimes. It’s not an offence. The list is long. How a society driven behind the power of goddess, can succumbs to these? When we will start respecting our daughters, mothers, sisters, wives, friends and Indians?
In next one decade, India is all set to become the country with largest women population in the world. Are not we supposed to set examples for the rest of the world by housing great ideologies to protect and respect the women? Are not we responsible for curbing their flies? Don’t they have rights to education, expressions and others? When we will learn to respect them? Even after 70 years of independence, half of the women populations are illiterate, they are house wives only, and they are not allowed to continue their professional lives after marriage. Why? Are they made for serving their husbands and relatives? Companies and firms do not wish to recruit married women because companies will bear the loss during their pregnancy time. Why? Why you are questioning on the existence and continuing of the world even? You don’t allow them to parliament; you undermine their capabilities as rulers, why? We rape them; we attack on them with acids. Why..Why do you attack your goddess?
Can we answer these questions? No we do not have. Can we try to find out? If we try, we will certainly get the answers. Can we strive collectively to ensure their rights, to make this country great again, as it was? Can we allow half population to held their heads high, and then be proud of their achievements?
