International Women’s Day

“For most of history Anonymous was a woman.”
Virginia Wool
“In politics if you want anything said, ask a man. If you want anything done, ask a woman.”
Margaret Thatcher


International Women’s Day came about due to several historical occurrences. It is the symbolic culmination of both the long public struggle for women’s rights and the more private struggle waged everyday by women that have made the celebration of this day possible.


But in today’s pretext in our country are we women really safe or cared for? It’s been 7 years and almost 3 months since ‘ Nirbhaya ‘ was brutally raped by 6 savages and thrown on the road to die. And die she did but after making her parents make a promise to get her rightful justice by finding out the culprits and hanging them by death. Since then her parents are moving from pillar to post to make this promise come true. But by the look of lagging justice and it’s keepers this seems to be a far distant dream.


India is a country who calls their woman Devi. You can see many common names of girls attached with Devi behind them. Devi means goddess. Almost all religion in this country celebrate them as Goddess. Durga is the most powerful Goddess in Hinduism, whereas many Christians worship Mother Mary and seeks favours from her to reach her son Jesus. It’s an irony that crime rates against women are higher in a nation where nearly 80% of the population worships Goddesses. And if this how we treat our goddess then what can be said about us ordinary women. We don’t expect to be treated like Goddess, atleast treat us like human beings.


At the present rate India is going Indian Courts have a backlog of more than 100,000 pending rape cases. Each day close to 90 rapes are reported in India. The conviction rate in rape cases is just 32%. And the victim goes through the worst period during the trial, as she explains what happened to her in front of a crowd. She dies a thousand deaths before she gets her justice, if at all she gets it.


Stop being hypocritical. ‘Beti bachao and Beti padawo’ is a good slogan but for what, to give them into the hands of those who ill-treat them, by beating them black and blue. A daughter, A Sister, A wife, A mother is not only the responsibility of the family but she is the responsibility of the society and the country. Learn to respect a woman, learn to see them as a human being. See them beyond the flesh that covers them. Teach your sons to respect and treat women including their sisters and mothers, so that they will do the same with all the women he meets in his life. We have a heart and emotion behind the flesh the men prefer to see. We feel the same pain when poked with verbal abuses and physical torture. Stop being insensitive and start being sensitive to every human being you come across. Remember what you sow you is what you reap.


Happy Women’s Day to one and all . Let’s make a promise to stand for each other and instead of celebrating, let’s make a vow to protect and support and cherish the women in our life.

Uhmm! What do I say abt myself. Love to read, write, watch tons of movies and loves music. Educated enough to enlighten a few things to a few some who shows the interest to listen. This is me in a nutshell. Will let out little by little, like the cat out of the bag. Ok I think it's time to let out one more passion of mine, which I as much love as writing, and that is cooking. Trying out different new recipies with a slight variation added of mine makes my culinary skills a little adventurous cuisine.

    1. Hey you…. ya it’s been a while and gosh was I missed? Hahaha… Anyway glad to be back with this post. The unfairness and non justice towards women has been hitting me pretty bad since a few weeks and took this day to speak out about it.
      Thanks for the wishes, and wish you a safe and a happy women’s day too.
      Thanks for the appreciation and glad you dropped by. Cheers ๐Ÿ‘


  2. You seem to be genuinely concerned, bt nothing much can be done.
    I feel it happens mostly due to their faulty upbringings & their parents are the one to be blamed. Bt it’s mostly a mother’s duty to make her child a better him, as a child’s environment & surrounding people make them a better human…
    Aur education ki bhi kami hai, aisa waisa nahi quality education milna chaiye..
    Without this rape cases will not decline much.
    And punishment ki Baat Mai u know that India is really forgiving, as I don’t remember the last time a rapist was hanged… Actually, it’s both good & bad..
    I came back after long time… Hw r u anyways?
