100th International Women’s Day

On the eve of 100th International Women’s Day, I congratulate all Women for celebrating their feminism despite facing many cultural, social and religious restrictions. Bravo to our strength and endurance!!

Women’s Day is special, apart from special discounts, free movie tickets, privileged treatment given by family and co-workers. It is special because it gives confidence and global acceptance.

I strongly oppose discrimination based on gender. Modern women have emerged across all domains and are not typically categorized to ‘homemaker’ or ‘working lady’. She plays multiple roles and strikes a perfect seamless balance between home and work. She is a homemaker and a professional. She is strong willed, independent, confident, vivid, no – nonsense, definitely not an object, with a right blend of attitude & emotions, fiercely loyal to near and dear ones. She is a new breed 🙂

However it hurts, when society makes fun of the day and joke around. She has given everything to society, yet is a victim of eve teasing, domestic violence, sexual harassment, early marriage and female infanticide. Her free spirit is still considered as a taboo.

In my country they worship Maa Durga as a feminine force (Goddess of power) , Maa Saraswati as a Goddess of knowledge and Maa Laxmi as a Goddess of wealth and prosperity. But they also deprive their daughters from education or provide very limited, restrict them from following their career dreams, block their free spirit and most often not allowed to take their marriage decisions. Don’t be mistaken by the myth that this is limited to poor, uneducated section of a whopping 100 crore+ population, many well educated . Settled and equally respected people also fall in this category.

International Women’s Day is not a celebration for discrimination against men rather a wakeup call to change our thinking process. Respect her for what she is, though she is a fighter, but, her struggle will continue endlessly as long as she’s not treated with equal respect.IWD is a celebration and boost up for a rebel  fighting continuously , for not losing patience and faith in her own self.

I dream of a day when being a woman will not be a stigma, when one woman won’t criticize another for being a ‘woman’. A day when their will be no list of Do’s and Don’ts for woman. I wish for a day when man and woman will be considered just ‘humans’.
