In human society, men and women are literally two halves of one unit known as Mankind.
Since times immemorial, most Indian men were taught to worship women as – a goddess and Shakti – a superwoman. Multi-tasker: A wife, a professional, mother, daughter, sister, a muse, an inspiration. She`s a mix of steel and silk.
Going back in time…
As in the uncivilised societies, it was not the physical strength but moral consideration that is the arbiter of the position of its individual units so women were accorded a superior status because of their ability to bear children and were protected by their male relatives. The practices such as child marriage, sati pratha, dowry system (that first started in Europe), lack of education, and female infanticide were instigated and perpetuated by mostly women for their own personal benefit.
…And then came a revolution!
Male scholars like Raja Ram Mohan Rai, Swami Dayanand Saraswati, Lala Lajpat Rai, Harvilas Sarda and many more did magnificent social work for bringing about a change.
Consequently, in the Constitution of free India equal rights are supposedly granted to all
citizens irrespective of caste, creed or sex.
However, the stigma of the inequality of Rights whereby some husbands and their parental side of the family are being given almost no rights, and is now starting to besmirch the fair name of our country over the last decade or two. It is needless to say that in preparing the ground to expose this fact, we have to this to draw attention to the prevailing disparities between Men and Women and agitate strongly for their abolition.
Voice against discrimination!
At present, India is among the major developing nations in the world but its pride is downed by the rapidly growing social evils like false cases of rape, sexual harassment, dowry and many more.
Today, we should come and join for a New Revolution against the discrimination acts. That will be a true service to Humanity.
