 Divinity has so designed the world that “A man does not control his own fate; a woman in his life does that for him”

Women are caring, women loving.

Behind every successful man, there is a woman. Behind every unsuccessful man, there must two.

Woman is known as the lady of the house, in realty she is the man of the house.

Men have always been dependent on women. At different stages of his life, man has had to depend on a lady figure. Sometime it s the Mother, It is Sister, It is teacher, it is Wife, it is daughter-in Law and  in certain cases it could be the girl friend not to forget the Mother-in Law.

Look at the game of chess. It is the Queen who protects the King.

Man depends on his wife’s fast to live longer, the ultimate magic of Karwa Chauth....but, never fasts for wife’s long life.

Man depends on Mata Laxmi for wealth.

Man depends on Mata Saraswati for knowledge.

Man depends on Mata Durga for strength.

Shivaji Maharaj’s,founder of Maratha Empire, was devoted to his Mother Mata Jijabai  who stood by him in every hour of crises.

Mahrana Pratap’s was mentored by his Mother Maharani Jaivantibai.

Looking after the house and the children is unexplained, but, expected to be responsibility of the women.

In Hindu Dharma, daughter is treated as a Goddess.

Amitabh Bachachan was bang on when he said “Daughters are soul of the house”.

But, But…there are lots of people who have a different opinion.

Vice Chancellor of AMU will not allow girls in Library.

Congress candidate Mohammad Bhatt from Kashmir says “Unmarried daughters are a liability to their fathers”

A report in says “51% of men in India believe that a woman must endure domestic violence to keep her family together”

A study conducted by UN quoted says “6 in 10 India men admit violence against wives”(@ht.tweets).

Incidentally,25th Nov is celebrated as "International day for the elimination of violence against women".  

“Being a woman is a terribly difficult task, since it consists principally in dealing with men.”....Joseph Conard..........As usual, there is a great woman behind every idiot….John Lennon.

Men...We are so dependent.Why,Oh,Why.

I agree with you in general. But the society is overkilling this. I can cite several examples of nasty and villainous women in history.

Hinduism is one of the few religions which has Goddesses,and we all worship them too but the victimization and objectification is a bitter reality which refuses to abate.

True ..all interesting points together

We still have a long way to go in treating our women fairly and equally. Worshipping goddesses and treating women well are unfortunately two different things in this country.

Purba said...

I think not treating a woman as a possession who needs to be controlled makes it much better for all of us.

Rahul Bhatia said...

With changing times women have donned even more hats than they were wearing earlier including being in workplaces and running home so they deserve even more respect and dignity than ever before!

Sandhya said...

Our people 'think' women are inferior but they cannot live without them. Men in Western countries cook for themselves from young age and clean the house too but here, they NEED women to do everything and 'earn' well too nowadays! Men are either afraid of women or ill treat them, here. They very rarely treat her as an equal and a friend.

I didn't expect this subject from you, Chowlaji! Nice!

Anita Desai said...

Agree. What is important is that women should first stop discriminating against themselves in all their societal roles, viz.daughter/ sister/ wife/mother/M-I-L/ Grandmother/ colleague/friend. Even in prayers we first think of our families and seldom pray for our own happiness. Others will respect us only if we respect ourselves and stand confident.

Alka Gurha said...

All around I see girls taking care of parents, making them proud and taking responsibility. Wonder why some folks think of them as a liability.

Unknown said...

Three cheers BK! Wonderful write up. You have made all women feel proud. Has Bina read this?

The reason for the difference in outlook lays with the core philosophy of religion and way of life.

I do not know what the Koran honestly tells about the status of women. But the Sharia is regressive and loaded against.

Everything begins with the refusal to bow to one's mother because for some that is sacrilegious because thou shall not bow to no God or idol except to me.

Shilpa Garg said...

I think it is time when the mindsets of people change about women, and the atrocities and crimes and curbing of freedom of women comes to an end!
