And then it was today , when as usual , I checked my phone the first thing in the morning , and the phone was full of women’s day messages, forwards and articles . Then I realised as a matter of fact that today 8th march is ‘Happy Women’s Day’ . But why just today ? Is it just a day in a year of 365 days that’s solely dedicated to women (I am just assuming that it’s solely dedicated)? Rest of the days are Happy Men’s Day or Happy Human’s Day ?
What’s so special about this day ? Just flowers and gifts and some kind words? Or something more? It’s really a thought worth thinking, about the women in rural or urban area who experience domestic violence or torture . Will this one day, give them the strength like Rani Laxmi Bai to fight and oppose their male torturers or will this day give the male dominators an idea that oh ! It’s women’s day . Let’s not beat or bully them today . What makes this day so special that it’s a celebration world wide and not within ourselves ? The main agenda is that it’s not about a day. Every day will be celebrated as women’s day when these pity yet strongest issues persisting in our society will be dealt with. Then it will be worth celebrating.
The practical and realistic approach to this thought will speak in a hushed voice inside our brains, be happy as you have one day dedicated to your existence. Let the world celebrate your feminism and womenhood. But the feminist and courageous voice will shout inside that what’s with just one day ? We should be celebrated every day as we are the ones who introduces a life in this universe. We are the ones who multitask being a homemaker and work related tasks deligently. And many such facets . It should be Men’s day that should be celebrated for a day .
But then the heart will take over and will make the voices in our brains listen and understand that there shouldn’t be any concept of men’s and women’s day alone. What we all are today is all because since ages, men and women have been the strongest support of each other in every possible way. No one speci is complete without the other . It will be no fun living a life without a father , brother , boyfriend, husband, son, grandson etc . The list is endless. No sacrifice will be worth counting for if it will not be in sync of both mother and father . No festival will be as fun without a brother or friends .
What we need to work upon today for a better world and for ages to reap the fruit is education. A well educated and well brought up man or woman is worth celebrating for. Education and grooming are two areas we as a society should pledge today to work on . If every parent takes the responsibility of their child’s upbringing in a deligent manner , for sure we will have a better future. And the thing to mind here is not just telling them what to do and what not. It’s about following and doing it yourself. You should be the one practicing it first to make your child understand what you are saying. As several studies have shown that children follow your actions more than your words.
So gear up parents all over the globe for the safety and protection of future generations and for the face of the world. Educate and groom the upcoming lads well so that we don’t need a special days to be reminded of who we are. Let it be a gradual and a daily routine to feel proud of who we are and our existence.
With this awesome thought and yet another article or post , Happy Women’s Day ..
