So we are again going to celebrate one more women's day. The very words put in my mind the pictures of long processions carrying verious slogans and soughting loudly for- Women's rights, Women's welfare, Women's respect and raising their voices againest Women's exploitation, torture of sufferings. The voice will be raised all about that in conferences and other progarammes made by many women's clubs or women welfare society or political parties etc. They will again talk about the duel rules and unjustice made by the society from thousands of years, and will blame either men or the society or even woman herself for all this. All thease things also done by them whole the year symbolicaly. But the question is that one day celebration or the symbolic agitations through the whole year, is enough for the struggle of equality? What should be more than that?
It is not becouse i want to minimize or underestimate their endeavours in this field. They do their best and they must be appreciated and thanked for all their efforts. But what i think is that an ordinary woman, or a rustic woman living in remote areas of our country can't be benefited by such clubs or societies or activities of political parties. Our orthodox women not even like the steps of tham. Not only rustic or ordinary women but even educated women don't want to create a fuss about their private lives. To a great extent they rather tolerate every kind of unjust treatment in their families.They, as i think, seem to think that this is destiny of a woman- to endure the torture, forget the torture and be prepared for further torture. A woman dose not want to go to the court, she can not even think of taking divorce. She only waits for her own destiny to be kind enough to make her happy. There might be exceptions in this case, but general survey is so.
Now what can be done? how can we prepare our suffering women to be bold? this boldness can not come in a creature all of sudden. Some-how we should try to change our thinking. The neccessity is to think sympathetically and reasonably about their condition. they themselves should try to be just about themselves. In our social as wel as private life we should try to be wise & alert about it. The whole society, country & the whole world have to be aware about their condition. In last but not least, i can say that when in every family a woman will given equal status, than this " Women's Day" will be meaningful. Only the celebration of Women's Day can't be enough.
