Women Power

Women Power



It is beyond doubt that a woman is powerful but it's sad that we have to say it again and again because many people in our country and world believes opposite of it. They treat women as inferior to them and didn't value their contribution in our lives and society. Women have achieved significantly in every field of life. She is the best homemaker, the best business woman, the best in field of cinema & art, the best in field of politics and so on. Yet she is not empowered and suffers badly in our society.

This distinction happens because we have made women special by creating God out of them instead of treating them as mere human. Now as god they have to maintain certain set of rules written in scriptures or orally imposed by traditions breaking of which is considered as an act below morality of a woman. The woman must adhere to these orthodox boundaries which were never drawn for men and the girl or woman who wants to come out of it is either labelled as a whore, a witch or a weed unwanted to the society for fear of ruining others. 

 I think women want to be treated equally than as a special being which have reduced them to a commodity. Treating someone specially means you don't consider them equal to yourself. Equality not only means equality in opportunity but equality in respect. I definitely believe that men is aware of this difference but don't want to breach it because they think that their power depends on suppression of women. That's the tragedy with power it comes at the cost of some one's rights. The patriarchal society snatches rights of women to establish superiority of men. Religion, custom, tradition and scriptures become their tool to affirm their right to rule over women. 

Until this unending urge of power in men which is not only the cause of misery of women but also the reason behind some of the biggest problems in the world ends the equality of women remains a dream. The people who wants to make women powerful must do so without asking for privileges . Separate queues at ticket counters, less income tax rates, reservation at any level, etcetera have only made women puppets in men's hand. This is their way to show women as weaker sex and thus denying equality to them. Yes there is a need to uplift women but as their right and not as kindness towards them because the feeling of kindness make the one at the receiving end inferior to you. So, women which has power of life is much powerful than what we men can think about them.

  1. Agreed. Equality is what anyone would want, not special privileges ["special" privileges would mean something is lacking, isn't it, hence is the opposite of equality and harmony]
    Thank you for your views on the subject. I really liked your post :)

Bitter Bread

Bitter Bread
Bread,doubleroti,pao,bun or we call it with any other name; it is the part of our breakfast which completes our daily routine. This ready to eat item is popular with egg and butter but the recent study by Centre For Science and Environment (CSE) have turned this must breakfast eatable bitter. 
CSE conducted test on various samples collected from different part of the capital belonging to different brands. They found 84% samples test positive for potassium bromate and potassium iodate after tests on 38 varieties which include Britannia,Harvest Gold,KFC, McDonalds, Domino's Pizza and Subway. These revelations are shocking and disturbing as all of us have eaten from one of these brands. It should also be noted that these two substances which are used to soften breads and enhance their color and texture namely potassium bromate and potassium iodate are banned in many countries of the world after a study conducted in the 90's. These substances however are not harmful a…

The Masked Life


I met with an accident few years back (precisely 10 years ago). It was dangerous and I came out of hospital in about ten days. Except a foot injury which needed dressing every week for around a year I was alright. But that what I and my family thought but as I few days past I realized problems of sore throat, running nose, itching eyes which were watering and initially it was difficult to even face a bright light. I was diagnosed with allergy from almost anything cold water, wind, dust, etc which increases in changing season. Doctor advised me to spend most time in homes and medicines were provided to control the allergy. It cured with time and now I only take single tablet daily to control my allergy. The doctor said to take it only when allergy symptoms appear but they comes out when I stop taking medicine. Now while researching about indoor air pollution I found what force me to take that tablet continuously even when I am mostly home-bound. 
We can avoid Indoor ai…

RIP Tom Alter
I am sure those who grew up in nineties are not unfamiliar with his name. Like many I also has his first image in my mind is of 'British Raj Ka Writer' in Doordarshan serial 'Zabaan Sambhaal Ke' where he played an Englishman writer who is learning Hindi. He was impressive in that role along with the other's worked in it. I later saw him in films like Charas, Karma, Kranti and films like that where he has played bad characters of Firangi (foreign) officer. He played these negative characters impressively and when you compare them with his comic role in Zabaan Sambhalke you will know his acting proves. 
I also remembered him as Mahaguru in popular superhero serial Shaktimaan but what inspired me about him later on in my life was his command on Hindi and Urdu. He recite shayaris and ghazals beautifully. I have seen performing him many time on television. I also knew he was a great theater actor but never got any chance to see him live on stage. His ghaz…
