As I walk down the lane, I see the men leeching at me, stalking another and harassing the other. This has been happening, this is happening and by the look of it, this will be happening. But why?
While our country has earned name as a land for worshiping goddesses, some are still not sure if their daughters need to be educated. What kind of hypocrisy are we heading towards? As a baby is born, she might be abandoned mercilessly and left to die, else prior to this event by the practice of female infanticides. There is so much of moral imbalance that needs to be sorted through.
A “complex issue” to begin with is a women’s access to education. This will partially cover a sphere of shortcoming concern of poverty and the problem related to gender equality. By means of equality we need to think of social equality and justice. These roots back to the base of the “complex issue” that needs to be addressed. This reminds me of the proverb- “educate women and educate the nation.” Education is a key to live an independent life. We need to educate a woman for her to live a self-reliant and a life of her own will and wish. It’s time we overcome the stereotype affair that a women’s dependency is under a man’s thumb. This point is baseless and immature. The same relates to education of any person.
Think this to yourself. Educating a woman means adding income to family. Adding income to the family is the mediated way to improve one’s standard of living. Why does it seem like a man’s ego is hurt if a woman’s status is elevated? Why can’t people let go their audacity and accept that women are as good as men? It’s time we head for a change. Educating a woman will make her independent and strong. It will help her deal with and overcome any kind situation in her life. We need to teach every growing mind that compromise is not always a solution to any problem. May it be men or women.
While we talk of women education, we can take a glance at women achievers. Kalpana Chawla, Sudha Murthy and Sunitha Williams are the names that strike my mind. Many to name but the point is we should take inspiration from such dynamos and hold on to our dreams. By the end of it, all I have to say here is respect women to respect the nation. Not generalising it, but some really need to.
