It’s time to stop fooling ourselves, says a woman who left a position of power: the women who have managed to be both mothers and top professionals are superhuman, rich, or self-employed. If we truly believe in equal opportunity for all women, here’s what has to change.
The status of women in India has been subject to many great changes over the past few millennia. With a decline in their status from the ancient to medieval times, to the promotion of equal rights by many reformers, the history of women in India has been eventful. In modern India, women have held high offices in India including that of the President, Prime Minister, Speaker of the Lok Sabha and Leader of the opposition.
Yet, despite many successes in empowering women, numerous issues still exist in all areas of life, ranging from the cultural, political to the economic.
I always felt that women in India are let free to do anything. Is that true?? I really don’t think so, today I feel ashamed to say that I belong to a rapist country. It is the worst feeling of an Indian citizen to remark their country with such a name. When I pledged for my country I said “I shall always strive to be worthy of it”…yes I tried to be make my country worthy of it, but my country is showcasing the very negative phase of its own..
Women are and were always a matter of inferiority. Though there are lots of opportunities and optimistic thoughts in today’s developing India, still there is a great fear of letting women do anything they want to with freedom and dignity. Why can’t women wear clothes which they love to wear and not get provoked by those criminal minds hunting for them. It is really sad, that in 21st century we so called developing Indians are just developing materially and not mentally.
Girls are forced to marry at young age even if they are least interested; rape your dear friends after shez drunk and unconscious, beaten up by their husbands if they can’t give birth to a child, throw acid if she rejects your love?? Strange, but unfortunately but it’s so true!
Adapting western culture, making friends with western countries is good but following the “modernization” physically and not mentally is so disgusting. After the nirbhaya rape case, the drastic rise in gang rapes has increased so much till date. There were many laws put forth, where none of them is useful. Women always had to suffer and are literally suffering in our modern world. Why is it always a woman?
If she looks good, she is hogged like a food. If she looks bad, she is teased and never appreciated. If she talks to many guys she is a slut and if she hardly talks to any guy she is a person with aggressive attitude. Wow!!! Hats off to the thoughts we Indians have… isn’t it?
Tolerating men, all there life is a common ritual in Indian families..From dominating her, throwing tantrums on her for no reason, blaming her for his every mistake, believing even if he lies, at last expecting till her death that he will improve some day!! But to no wonder, men are always men..True that not all men are the same but 95% of them are and even now it continues to be the same..
Our vision plays the major role in describing or judging a person. So please clean our eyes with pure water, so that our vision towards every human being is equal and not discriminative.
Education gives to rise to every person..I believe that the awakening India is not to far but for that we all need to unite together and work to help our sisters and our friends. I wish that I could beg and make aware each family about the importance of women in their life.
Live and let live every human being especially all the ladies in our country happily. This will definitely give rise to our country to be called as a developed nation.
