I am software engineer and always work round the clock to learn new things. But if you ask me a question on current events or if you try to discuss with any of the event that happened in the city, you can see a blank look on my face.
My knowledge on current events is so limited and the only source is my maid, who brings me news about current events now and then.
Am I too stingy to buy newspaper everyday? or I am too obsessed with mean things that I don’t watch news ?
No.. The reason is I am too sensitive. Too sensitive for bad news that the newspaper carries. And one such thing is violence again women. It shakes the basic trust that I have on this society and the fellow human beings.
I really don’t understand the reason behind the women being bullied and annoyed by the society often. Being weaker than men, does that make her vulnerable for attacks?
Irrespective of the higher or lower society, educated or uneducated people, domestic or international differences I could see the crime against women in all phases and in all places. Why is this happening and what could be the starting point for this?
Is this the universal law, that the weaker animal is being attacked and bossed upon by the stronger animal where I have seen the Lion threatening the Hyena’s in discovery channel.
But even after years and years of civilization, do we still have the dark patches of characters that we have got from our ancestors.
Women are not only bullied and tortured by their opposite sex and most of the times by the same sex.which makes me worry more.
The thought goes on.. I am still struggling to find the reason behind the activities against women.
But I am clear on the solution for this. The basic reason behind the society’s cruel face against women is we forgot the morals. And we forgot to teach the moral to our kids.
Whether you are educated or uneducated, when you have a kid, teach them the importance of the fellow human, teach them to respect fellow human's feeling, make them to stick to the basic values which are more important.
Make them to look at girl as a fellow human first and then as a girl or sister or anyone next.
Teach them the needs to protect women and respect her emotions. Tell them that she may be different in appearance but she is the basis for every men's life. She has more capabilities than man, Men may be stronger but even the strongest man cannot carry his gene to next generation on his own. He needs the help of women.
Teach the children that the women are elixir of life and without her the world will never flourish. Teach the boys the right way, the women has to be treated and respected. Teach them the values of life more than the value of money.Teach them to understand the pain of women as theirs.
Remember if you wish your advices and words to be heard, first you have listen to them and follow them. So start living from this moment the way you like to be treated by others. Treat the women whom you come across your life with respect, start observing few things which you have never done till now like giving our mom a day's rest and doing all her chores, helping your young maid to get the education she needed, giving your daughter-in-law few words of appreciation, helping your wife in her daily activities, gifting your daughter one of the class you have rejected because you felt it is unnecesssary.
And slowly and steadily we will build a society that treats women with a value they deserve.
Lastly, I always wanted to have a boy child and I pray God for the same everyday. Not because I like boy-child more than girl. In fact I like girl-child more.
But I want to bring him with morals and wanted to see him treating his sister, grandma, girl friends, wife, daughter with respect and care they deserve. If I can achieve that I succeed not only as mother but also as women.
