Have you ever seen any portrait of Adam & Eve, first man & woman on earth (according to creation myths of Abrahamic religion)? If not, atleast you must have seen 30 seconds advertisement on latest bathing soap company. The similarity in both is, from the very ancient time, man is shown as physically strong, rough & brave one; where woman as beautiful, emotional, modest creation. So it is manifested from years that ‘Taking risk, challenges’ is forte only for ‘Brave’ man, not for ‘Emotional’ woman. Thats why, responsibility of woman is handed over to man blindly…let it be any country, any religion !! As evolution of human being has taken place from homosapien to today’s human, physically; in same way, over the time period, thought process of human has evolved a lot from old one. But still the woman is treated as the belongings of man !!!
Today there are many women like, Mrs. Angela Merkel (Chancellor of Germany), Mrs. Chanda Kochhar (MD & CEO, ICICI) & many others, who came from non-glamorous background & with continuous hard work, done fantabulous job in male dominant sectors. But number of such women are so less; its the tip of submerged everest, above the water. The difference between these some successful women & large number of other women, clearly indicates that women can work in any field as that of men & can perform even better than them, if provided with ideal surrounding to expand their wings.
On the occasion of International Women’s Day 8 March, 2015; we, Rotaract Club of Dombivli, in our project “AAJUN TI BANDHANATACH”, spoke with more than hundred women from age group 18 to 40 years. For the question, “Will you cultivate your hobby inspite of opposition from home?” about 71% said ‘Yes, we will cultivate our hobby irrespective of reaction from our home’. 21% said, they won’t be standing against their loved once & will do only what they are told from elders. Remaining women couldn’t choose the side.
The numbers are pretty much satisfying. But we hope, she won’t need to FIGHT for her right. We as a society with modern values, should support her as much as we can. The decision for future of child, should not be biased with gender. Every hobby can be converted in profession, with proper study & guidance. Also, She should not supress her desire to fulfil the dream. We, Rotaract Club of Dombivli, are bound to help each & every woman, who needs guidance to convert her hobby in profession.
Dream big…Speak aloud…Hustle hard…Try till you Win…
Wish you a very Happy Women’s Day !!!!
Thank you for every thing…
