Women - A Hidden Wealth


Gone are the days when women were imprisoned in their husband’s houses and called dumb. Are women dumb? There is a saying “Women are dumb!” I do not know who coined this, but I am sure he was a man who never knew the potential of a woman and lived his life a fool. Everyone here will agree with me that men are physically stronger while women are weak. But that is the only negative thing in women if we compare them with men. Negative??? I think being weak itself is a positive quality of women. Women generally have tremendous patience, are responsible, more mature, are mentally stronger and they are the ones who generally take care of the family. God has given them a huge stock pile of love and emotion. When a women talks, she connects quickly and easily. She is expressive and reflects honesty. She is no longer an indoors women. That is why we see women slowly and steadily occupying higher positions in our society. With increase of computerization and automation, the need of physical strength is on the wane.The women who are blessed with the best of qualities in terms of commitment, mental strength, convincing and negotiating skills are getting better educated and in larger numbers. The good business industry has recognized this and we see women quickly up-skipping towards higher echelon of careers and proving to be assets of their organizations. Many of these women also manage the household chores smoothly and efficiently. That’s a huge load they are now carrying.

Those business industries that have recognized the potential of women are better prospering. We in India still have a very large section of society who has not understood this wealth. Many of us still believe and promote the masculine gender and unconsciously suppress the feminine. We still yearn for that male child and abort the female. Women are still physically and mentally abused by their husbands and in-laws. The muscle still rules.

Though efforts are being made to improve the state of women in our society, the efforts lack will or do not percolate adequately. This has to accelerate quickly with self-assurance. Our country needs the women of our society to be better educated. We need to give the women of our society independence. Independence, to decide their future. We need an explicit cultural and political overhaul.

There is without any doubt that if this area is addressed and acted with vigor, we will be accelerating our pace towards a greater and prosperous India. This hidden wealth urgently needs to be unchained. India needs many more women leaders and managers in every field.

Being a woman...I can't agre with you more. But i hope the scene will change soon.

I once asked someone why women did not chant the gayatri mantra...and he said,men chant gayatri mantra to invoke powers or potential which they do not possess...most powers are innate to women and needs no further invoking...i guess that speaks volumes about the potential of women.

Hi,

Your blog sounds interesting. Also, it speaks about changing roles of women in Indian society. i would also like you to introduce to one such students activity carried out by us.

I’m Tanmay Shanishchara, student of PGPCME, MICA-EDC. I am glad to introduce you ‘ThinkYuva’, a student initiative from Mudra Institute of Communications, Ahmedabad (MICA) - EDC. The initiative is to bring about a mental leap in the people of the country with the belief that such leap would bring about an all-round development of the country. For this purpose, ThinkYuva would be organizing various events and road shows. For this event, invitations would be called from students from colleges across the country mentioning one important problem in their vicinity and the solution to it. The themes chosen for this year are civic sense, children related issues and environmental issues.

The final event is planned for the 18th of August. We look forward to an active involvement from your side. We believe that this initiative and your support would be great for the development of our nation. To express your precious views and for further details visit: http://www.thinkyuva.com

Pankaj,
I never knew issues of women and their empowerment was so close to your heart. Leave alone India, even in developed nations you find it is a man's world. Proof is in the unequal salaries for equal jobs just on the basis of gender. If this is the case in liberated and developed countries,what to expect from a male dominated country like ours where a woman's sacrifice is glorified. We suffer from the past baggage and years of conditioning of the belief that women are plain cattle and are born for the convenience of man. Even when man and woman pursue full time jobs outside the homes, it will still be the woman's duty to slog it out in the kitchen and home after the day's grind at the office. I don't think we can call this liberation. It is only when a man fully cooperates in running of the home when the woman is also a full time working woman that we can say that the hidden wealth is getting her due respect and consideration.
